Forgiveness is a process where someone who has been wronged chooses to let go of their resentment, and treat the wrongdoer with compassion.Forgiveness does not mean forgetting or condoning the wrongdoing, granting legal mercy, or reconciling a relationship. You can forgive a person while in no way believing that their actions were acceptable or justified. On the other hand, simply saying the words “I forgive you”, or accepting an apology, is not forgiveness. In fact, forgiveness can occur without ever speaking to the wrongdoer. Forgiveness is an emotional change that occurs within the person who has been wronged.MERCH IS HERE!! MERCH IS HERE!!

BlackFacts.com presents the black fact of the day for May 7.J. R. Winters received a patent for the fire escape ladder.He was born in Leesburg, Virginia to an African-American brickmaker and a Shawnee Indian mother, who was the daughter of a noted herbalist and medical practitioner.In 1830, at the age of 14, he relocated to Chambersburg, Pennsylvania. During this time that Winters lived in Chambersburg, a city known for Quaker abolitionist activity, he was active in the Underground Railroad. In the 1870s as buildings became taller, Winters noticed that firemen had to take ladders off of their horse-drawn wagons to climb to windows, rescue people, and spray water on fires.The ladders had to be foldable or collapsible so that fire wagons could turn corners in narrow streets and alleys. He built a fire wagon made with a mounted ladder that could be folded and received a patent for it on May 7, 1878.Three years later in 1882 Winters received a patent for a fire escape ladder that could be attached to buildings. While all of his inventions saved lives and made firefighting and building escape easier, Winters reportedly received much praise but little money for his inventions.In 2005, the Pennsylvania Historical and Museum Commission erected a historical marker honoring Winters at 130 North Second Street.Learn black history, teach black history at blackfacts.com

Like many people, my client Jalynn Jones always knew she wanted to help people. However, she fell into the entrepreneurship pitfall of prioritizing the idea of serving others before herself. Jalynn shares, "My business model was full of scarcity, handouts and begging people to work with me, let alone pay me." She was a woman charging $14.99 for the same clients that would get them $20,000-$40,000 raises for career coaching. Such was Jalynn's reality of being overwhelmed, overworked, and underpaid. She thought she needed another secret formula to raise her game. She found a different path totally opposite to complex strategies and the wrong mindset of building a business in a transformational space. Key points discussed in this episode: ✔️Jalynn had already spent ten years working her way up in a job, vying for raises and promotions to get a big seat at the table. She decided she couldn't waste more time building her dreams as a black woman. "It's not about leaving and escaping corporate America. It's about making our revolutionary corner and being our own corporation. You have to decide, and that's what I did when I saw Shameca make absolute decisions, teaching us how to do the same in various ways." ✔️ Get comfortable in the CERTAINTY of who you be. When Jalyn fully owned her identity, she collapsed time and made the results come faster. The coming into self-actualization helped her reach the people she's meant to serve, making it possible to earn her first $100,000 in nearly 24 hours without a funnel and a small email list. ✔️ As women, we are not afraid of hard work. We're not scared of putting in time and effort. However, that's not how it works in entrepreneurship. It's not "The harder you work, the more you get." Shameca debunks all of the myths about the hustle and bustle. What is required is the energetic work that will push you to rise to whatever result you are looking to achieve with ease and flow. ✔️In order to be a giant, you have to be around giants. You can't dig for more strategies and solutions to get results. What you need is to find people who can be examples of possibility. Get in the proximity of what success looks like for you. Because once you see it, you no longer have a doubt about it being possible for you. —————————— Loved this episode? Know that it's your time. Listen, love, when you stop playing small and show up fully, your business and income will naturally grow as you do too. https://www.shamecatankerson.com/

Like many of us, my client Gabrielle Leonard knew from childhood that you get penalized for being bigger and ostracized for simply being extra. In this episode of the Giants series, she shares her journey from hiding her greatness, overcoming insecurities, and gaining self-trust that has shifted all aspects of her life and business. Gabrielle created the change that allowed her to achieve six-figure months and is now on the path to reaching her first million! Key points discussed in this episode: ✔️At six feet tall, Gabrielle was used to hunching over or tiptoeing when entering a room of people. A woman big in energy and big in stature was taught by society to hide. She is existing but not thriving by not being true to her power, affecting all aspects of her life and business. ✔️As an expert in her field of work, helping others close corporate six-figure corporate contracts, Gabrielle knows that corporations can readily pay for huge amounts. However, she doubted that individuals would invest with her at higher levels. Often she will undercharge and sabotage herself when high-end clients come. "I don't have a college degree, and my clients have doctorates degrees. The insecurities tugged at me. The minute I shifted self-deprecating ideas in my mind was when I started having more clients." ✔️ Throw that fake humility out of your way. Stop worrying about other people and overcome the feeling of unworthiness and mindset of 'I can't take up space because I'm going to step on somebody'. You get the opportunity to choose to be in the full power of who you are. That's how you're going to be in the highest service of everyone. ✔️ Gabrielle shares that her biggest transformation comes from overcoming the lack of self-belief. It doesn't matter what pain or trauma you've experienced; it doesn't matter if you're black, six feet tall, or plus-sized or if you have a college degree or not. You are here for a reason, and the world needs you. Don't just show up and hide but take up the damn space. It's yours. ✔️Your self-identity must match and align with who you desire to be and what you desire to create. If you dream of attracting high-level clients and earning millions from changing people's lives, you must first acknowledge that you are worthy, ready, and the right person for the job. You are the top caliber expert they need. Believe that. ✔️Go be a GIANT — not tomorrow, but today. When you look into the mirror and finally see the greatness that is in you, that's when the game changes. Because you see you. You're no longer hiding in plain sight. It's time to rise and be the Giant that you are. https://shamecatankerson.lpages.co/masterclass-giants/ ———————————————————— Loved this episode? Know that it's your time.

Leigh (@lshfoster) and Ellie (@elliebrigida) hang out with one of Tagg Magazine's 2022 Enterprising Women, Sheri Johnson (@the_sheri_johnson). Sheri is the founder and CEO of the streaming network Strong Voices Television (@SVTVNetwork). We talk about how she took a comment from a friend and turned it into a series and then created an entire network. We examine the idea of what it means to be labeled a stud and why Sheri doesn't identify as one. We also talk about Sheri's new children's book “Black Girl Magic”. Sheri's web series was born out of a comment that her life should be a tv show. She took that idea and ran with it and created Studville TV, a web series about four black lesbians. Studville TV was on Youtube for 3 seasons before it was demonetized by the platform. This lead Sheri to create her own streaming network with the purpose of championing the LGBTQ+ community in television, film, sports, and advocacy. The network gained 15,000 subscribers within the first 30 days from launch and has been growing ever since.

The world is changing and we have been growing right along with it. Black women are leading the way in entrepreneurship, but have also increased in numbers as gun owners. Today we introduce our listeners to Marchelle of My Sister's Keeper Defense who turned her experience and skills into a business of supporting women in their journey of self defense.Marchelle aka “Tig” Davis, is owner of My Sister's Keeper Defense (formerly known as Trigger Happy Firearm Instruction). She's a Florida native and current resident of Atlanta, Georgia. She is also the owner and founder of Iron Sharpens Iron and National Range Day. Marchelle started My Sister's Keeper Defense in 2016 after noticing a lack of representation in the gun community. Her firearms background stems from the military. Marchelle was in the Army National Guard for seven years and became a firearms instructor when she left the military. She fell in love with teaching firearms classes while working at a local Atlanta gun range. Her goal is to effectively teach a million women how to defend themselves with firearms and eventually open her own gun range. As a domestic abuse and sexual assault survivor, Marchelle think's it's important that women feel like they're in control of their safety. My Sister's Keeper Defense is here to empower women and make sure that no one else becomes a victim.Visit www.mysisterskeeperdefense.com or on Instagram/Facebook @mysisterskeeperdefenseMERCH IS HERE!!

Dear Friend, I loved Black Girl Magic at its inception, but I quickly realized the problem with Black girl magic and black excellence. It's not very inclusive, it demands more than it gives and it feels like hustle culture by another name. We needed "Black Excellence" and "Black Girl Magic" to celebrate and uplift ourselves, but we tend to use Black girl Magic or Black Excellence as a divisive tool to be exclusive instead of inclusive. I also believe that hustle culture and grinding is glorified when Black women are already exhausted and tired. Black excellence is hustle culture by another name. much love, joy and rest, Alecia Get my free affirmational music: https://aleciarenece.me/feelgoodmusic _____________ Keep Up With Me: Join The Patreon Family: https://www.patreon.com/AleciaRenece Instagram: www.instagram.com/aleciarenece YouTube: www.youtube.com/user/aleciarenece Get My Music: https://aleciarenece.bandcamp.com/ Follow Our RV YouTube: https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCUIK2wntqZR4dedvlnW4WuQ ____________ Questions, Comments, Concerns?

For a long time, we've been made to believe that as entrepreneurs, when you unleash your giant, start being driven and going for the things that are for you; then you are destined to prepare for the HARD that comes with it — the angst, stress, struggle and strife. My client, Yenory Pouncil, looks back on how she believed for the majority of her life that if you aren't hustling all the time, you are not worthy of receiving success. Working to the bone was a part of her identity and a badge of honor. In this episode of the Giants Interview, Yenory shares her journey of overcoming, the massive results she's been creating, and how she's been able to lean into that expansion easily. Key points discussed in this episode: ✔️It's no ordinary feat just to have had a baby and made six figures in business all in the last nine months!

I work with numerous high achievers who tend to pretend they're not doing incredible things in the world. I know this because I am one, and I am a mentor for GIANTS to hold power for them to see their power. In this episode, my client Randy Radul, an executive leadership team coach, shares what it's like when she unleashes her greatness unapologetically. Key points discussed in this episode: ✔️Randy collapsed her monthly income into a SINGLE $58,000 sale. She absolutely killed it, and we're celebrating her today and getting the inside scoop on her journey to claiming her giant status. ✔️Achievers that jump into entrepreneurship often lose the certainty, confidence, and self-esteem with every attempt that they are not winning. Randi considers having a program and a team holding her accountable and consistently tracking her numbers allowed her to scale and get herself out of her own way. ✔️ Self-trust became key for Randy as she handles the people she serves who are also giants. They are presidents and CEOs of organizations going through their transformations and helping them build strong, high-performing teams focused on being the best leaders aligned with their strategy. ✔️Stop being sorry for your greatness. I beckon you to unlock and unleash the GIANT in you, unapologetically and without judgment. Become unbothered by the bright flame you are, bask in the power you possess and the frequency elevator you are. ✔️You know that your success is inevitable, yet you can't quite see it right now. Be fearless enough; it's time to step into a powerful vortex of evolution. Go through this journey with me and become the best you beyond accomplishment, beyond ego and into a life of significance that awaits you. ✔️If you are like Randy and the elite few who are ready to push beyond your imagination and be transported outside of your comfort zone, you need a solid portal to help you step into the fullness of your power.
A recurring theme that has come up around black women lately is the pressure to always be on. The phrase “always on” means something is always active, operating or powered. In technology it refers to things that are expected to have continuous connection or be consistently accessible. In human terms, always being on is too tiring to even think about. However, in our day to day lives that is how some of us operate. Always on in some capacity when in mixed company and corporate spaces. Our minds are full of what to say, what not to say, how to say it, how we'll be perceived, is it a stereotype etc. That constant flow of thought coupled with stressful or even hostile situations can lead to blow ups, break downs and other out of character actions when you least expect it. So today, we want to give you some tips on how to maintain your poise under pressure.MERCH IS HERE!! MERCH IS HERE!!

Mahogany Brown is Lincoln Center's first-ever poet in residence. She believes poetry is a tool for transformation. But Browne does much more than write poetry. She's also the executive director of Just Media, a media literacy organization. And she has authored several books including Black Girl Magic, Chlorine Sky, and “I Remember Death by Its Proximity to What I Love.” A key part of her residency at Lincoln Center is putting on poetry and art events – Including the Woke Baby Book Fair – a celebration of social justice children's books. Through her work as a curator, she's focused on giving voice to underrepresented poets – including children and artists from black and brown communities many of whom were first-time performers at Lincoln Center. This summer will mark a year into her residency. So I spoke with her today about her practice as a poet and curator and asked her what it means to her to be the first-ever poet in residence.
This week, we are joined by poet & author, Mahogany L. Browne! Mahogany is the Executive Director of JustMedia, a media literacy initiative designed to support the groundwork of criminal justice leaders & community members. She is the author of recent works: Vinyl Moon, Chlorine Sky, Woke: A Young Poets Call to Justice, Woke Baby, & Black Girl Magic. In this episode, Mahogany tells us about her experience reading as a child, writing through discomfort, and the process of writing a novel-in-verse.Follow Mahogany on Instagram: https://www.instagram.com/mobrowne/Follow Mahogany on Twitter: https://twitter.com/mobrownePurchase VINYL MOON: https://bookshop.org/books/vinyl-moon-9780593176443/9780593176436Follow SCBWI on Instagram: https://www.instagram.com/scbwi/Follow SCBWI on Twitter: https://twitter.com/scbwiBecome an SCBWI member: https://www.scbwi.org/join-scbwi/Shop the SCBWI Bookshop.org store: https://bookshop.org/shop/SCBWI Support the show (http://scbwi.org/join-scbwi/)

Hey ya'll and welcome to another dope episode of Joi Has Questions! This week I spoke to one of the dopest MC's making waves in the City of Wind, Danny Twelvetree! If you blink you'll miss a lot when it comes to Danny as he's gone from opening for Dave East to dropping mixtape - after - mixtape - after - mixtape! Known as the Midwest Mamba I got to sit done to see what made him fall in love with #hiphop, what he has lined up for 2022, and how staying true to his goals keeps him from worrying over others' success. In a world where everyone is focused on the glitz and the clout Danny is focused on the music. Hell, even since our interview ended, to see the moves he's made since then completely demonstrates that this is a brother who puts his money where his art is! I predict nothing but wins for this King and I hope you gleam some motivation from checking out our dope ass interview!

In this episode, I am honored to sit down and talk with Dr. Chelsey Green, a multi-instrumentalist, vocalist, entrepreneur and educator. Dr. Green, a native of Houston, Texas, was born into a family of jazz and funk musicians and started her performance career as a violinist at age 5. From being appointed Associate Professor in the String Department at the prestigious Berklee College of Music and recently served as Acting Chair for the Spring 2021 term to reaching #4 on the iTunes Jazz chart, Dr. Green is the true definition of Black Girl Magic. Together we talk about life, as well as her latest EP, titled “ReEnvisioned.” We speak in depth about how she dealt with stereotypes in the past; what it was like creating music during a pandemic, and the inspiration that drives her. Dr. Chelsey Green speaks openly about the motivation and passion behind the lyrics and the messages tucked inside. (S2 - E10) Guest info. www.chelseygreen.com
