The Afrocentrist Podcast

By Afrocentrist
The topic of Self-Improvement is one that cannot be overemphasized as to become a better continent, we need better people and to become better people we need to be intentional about self-improvement and personal development.

On the Afrocentrist, our goal is to help you think about areas where you need to improve to make you a well rounded African. Whether that is personal growth, business growth, career growth, health growth, financial growth, spiritual growth or even relational growth. The point is you need to be a better version of yourself today than you were yesterday.
