Raw, uncensored talk about real-life topics for the everyday millennial. A podcast dedicated to healing + leveling up your life and business. Listen to Dolce and her special guest talk about everything from relationships, business, mental health and healing.
There’s a lot of conversation going on around it about it being a “ good or bad” time to invest hence we could be headed into another economic depression due to COVID-19. We see store hours being reduced and non- essential businesses closing down, some even for good. These changes we’re seeing has caused the stock exchange to be at an all time low which is never good, but is their a silver lining in this is if things go back to normal for us? Stock share prices are low which means they’re affordable, how would it feel to own a piece of the world’s largest travel company? Currently, you can buy a share of American Airlines for $10.87. Why not buy 5 shares, spend $54 bucks and invest for your future? You’ve probably spent that on food, clothes, Uber or other miscellaneous things and have never seen that money again. We don’t know what will happen in the next 6 months, but if things happen to resume back to normal, people start traveling, and shopping again, that means you could double or maybe tripled your investment. Listen to me and Pre, owner and creator or Melanin Voyage, entrepreneur, and 7 year trader talk stocks, trading & investing in a crisis.
Most times doing a big chop isn't optional from many black women. We were once conditioned to a certain standard of beauty which was straight, long hair and for many of us, that meant we had to put chemicals in our hair to achieve that look. For years, damaging our true roots to fit into this standard was normal, thank God we had an evolution. Why did you do your big chop? Was it to cut out your perm? Cut off damaged brittle hair or just a fresh start to a healthy hair journey? How did you feel after your big chop? Did you lose confidence? Did you feel "ugly"? For many of us, we had to grow into our natural beauty and that journey of accepting our true textures, un-manipulated was a challenge. Listen to me and my special guest Guilia, also known as "The Curly Flower" and Ray Calloway from the Black Girl Daily talk our natural hair journey including our big chop experience, confidence, discrimination in relationships/ the workplace, our regimens and how we came to love our natural roots.
Indulge in this wholesome conversation between 3, black, women on a journey of self-love and healing.
It's a lot to process. We don't know what to expect. Most of us are scared and thinking if we'll have enough food, water, and when we will return to work.

How has this virus affected your everyday life? Are you practicing self-care in the midst of this panic and fear?

That trauma, those voids you feel now stemmed from somewhere. For most of us, it came from our childhood. For some, our everyday life is impacted in ways that are painful disrupting our inner relationships or relationships with others. We can't forget about that little girl or little boy that still lives in us. He or she survived but still needs love, acceptance, and acknowledgment. In this episode, me and Natalie Greagor speak on healing and what it's like on this journey re-parenting your inner child.

2020 is around the corner and for the New Year I want all of us to focus on decluttering our lives. We must let go of carrying heavy burdens, voids, pain trauma, and at some point, realize that what we carry is too heavy to keep holding on too, and in may in fact be holding us back. What tools and coping skills do you have in place to get through this healing process? What have you learned over the years that works for you? What makes you feel good? Whatever that might be, remember it, store it as a tool and use it when you need it again. Listen to this episode on releasing baggage and unclogging your spirit. Let's continue making learning and loving ourselves a priority.
Pulling yourself out of a mentally dark space is hard enough, losing someone that you're close with is even harder. How do you cope? How do you begin a road of healing? When your loved one passed were you mentally ok and now suffer from a mental illness?
Listen to me and Jen discuss how we are coping with our mental health, whether that be anxiety, depression or BPD all while grieving the loss of a loved one.
Most of us love sex, and most of us usually don't wait to indulge once we like the person / feel the chemistry. We hear from different perspectives and religions that we should save our bodies for our husbands/wives and remain pure until then, but should you?? What are your thoughts on casual sex? Do you believe in soul ties? Should we wait until we find the "one"? Sex before marriage is here.
This is for all the black girls & women who suffer from anxiety /being an introvert etc. In many spaces, I wasn’t allowed to be “the quiet black girl” because black girls are typically “loud” & if I wasn’t displaying these attributes it had to be something wrong with me. The black introvert is often questioned & judged for being who we truly are based on a stereotype, I & Saabriah are digging deep on behalf of the black community. Listen to the perspective of a UK 🇬🇧 citizen & a US 🇺🇸 citizen on #blackmentalhealth & how we are growing and evolving on different parts of the globe.🌍

Living in fear at this point is unacceptable. The anxiety seems crippling, and you are left mentally and spiritually drained because of it. You know your capable of more but you can’t seem to find the balance between them. That’s the anxiety and what’s REAL. The pain and trauma from your past hold you back, they provide unsettling feelings and thoughts. You’re not happy with your life and feel like you failed. You sometimes choose to go back into old habits or old people because you feel comfortable there. You hold on to things when you know you should let go and let better in. You have a lot of fight in you but sometimes is feels unbearable, unrealistic that the person you have become is not capable of HEALING. You are though, WE are. Listen and be inspired, come along this journey of healing with me. It’s time.
(I know I mentioned Season 2 Ep 1, but I have decided to keep the episodes rolling! This is officially season 2 Ep 11!)
Outgrowing the old you isn’t going to be easy. It comes with major shifts and difficult transitions that you’ll have no choice to adapt to. The peace is knowing that your efforts will not go unnoticed. You may not see results now, but in due time you WILL. I struggle with the second voice in my head telling me I can’t do it or I’ll fail if I attempt, but I realize that; that isn’t my voice, it’s FEAR. Decipher what is happening and where it’s stemming from so that you can overcome it. Because you WILL overcome it and you WILL SUCCEED.
Is it realistic to say that men and women can chill together (alone) without the man feeling entitled to having sex with you? Is it possible for me to say I want to come over and it be JUST to chill and really watch Netflix without you believing that sex is what I wanted? Can we sometimes enjoy each other’s company without the notion of sex being apart of the equation?
The spiritual journey to being a better person, reaching higher heights, unlearning old, and toxic behaviors, shedding your old skin to welcome the new, isn’t for the weak! The strong minded are here for the LONG RUN. Life ain’t sweet and we understand that success may not come easy but we MUST CONTINUE the fight until we get it ALL that we have envisioned and DREAMED OF! That initially and simply, begins with the MINDSET that you can actually achieve and become who you already are.
Sometimes we don’t acknowledge our low energy. We ignore our emotional shifts and keep it moving because LIFE keeps moving. 2019 is too epic of a year to not prioritize our ENERGY⚡️ that is all we have and that is what needs our focus. SHIFT✨
We ALL want the money! BUT... are we really doing all that we can to obtain the lives that we REALLY want? Are you being completely honest and transparent with yourself? Besides putting in OT at work are you SETTING THE FOUNDATION? Go ahead and listen to my experience along my journey. I'm gonna be real, and I'm gonna be raw.
