Ep 17 - The Courage To Be Unapologetically Black, Skyra Rideaux, TEDx Talk

This episode is a little different. Instead of bringing in a guest Skyra shares a recent experience that had a huge impact in her life. In September of this year, Skyra had the opportunity to give a TEDx talk. Her topic? A talk about what it’s like to be a black woman in a predominately white space. She chose this topic to give people a better understanding of what that experience is like. As Skyra worked on her piece, she started to have doubts. She was really scared that the story and the message she wanted to share wasn’t important enough to put herself out there. In fact, she wasn't just scared, she was terrified. She almost quit...twice. But she kept working. Skyra reminded herself that there are other people who are having similar experiences and it’s important for them to know they are not alone.

Ep 16 - Shanea Morrison Nelson Ph.D, Community Development Director, LCG

Have you ever wanted to serve your community by working in local government? This week's guest never did. In fact, she wanted to steer clear of being involved in any form of politics. But in this episode, Dr. Shanea Nelson talks about how her career path challenged her to impact others through the role of Director of Community Development for Lafayette Consolidated Government. Dr. Nelson also does a GREAT job of really breaking down what this complex department does so that we can understand the full scope of what she and her staff do to build up our community.

Ep. 13 - Robin LeBlanc, Owner, Robin Leblanc CPA, LLC

In this episode, I speak with my dear friend, Robin Leblanc. She shares the journey she took that helped her build a successful business. And let me tell you, she ended up in a very different place than when she started out, but through it all she remained very passionate about helping others. One of my favorite takeaways from this conversation is how Robin describes her leadership style. She leads by doing. She discovered at a young age how important it is to take action and that her action created action in others. So listen up, and then go do something!
