Dear Black Girl Creative, "you deserve good things".

She has built a life on her own terms STRESS FREE in Mexico City. We talk about things that should be daily mantras like; don't stay around for things that doesn't serve you, leave jobs when you're ready to go, love yourself enough to choose yourself, choose yourself before you lose yourself, don't stay in a bad marriage longer than you should and SO much more. Whether talking about advocating for yourself in work spaces, learning how to use your money to live a life you love, leaving the United States, freeing yourself from debt or dealing with shame as a Black woman, I know everyone who listens will be able to take something away from this conversation. "(Adalia helps) Black women gain the financial confidence needed to master their money so they can move abroad, travel the world, or whatever their heart desires." SUPPORT and FOLLOW ADALIA:

Kisha in her own words:   “I grew up in Virginia, a gymnast and cheerleader, playing softball and soccer. I knew I was bound to do something special, but I didn't know what.   When it comes to my career, I'm often called a ‘bad-ass.' As the Managing Director of Portland's Artists Repertory Theatre, I feel at home on a stage in front of thousands of people. When it comes to spending time outside, however, I wasn't what you would call an “outdoors woman.”   I didn't camp. I didn't spend hours in the woods. Yet, when I moved to Portland, I found a love I didn't know existed: my love of hiking. Days spent exploring all of the swimming holes and waterfalls in the Pacific Northwest transitioned into my first solo trip to Reykjavнk, Iceland.    I scuba-dived, hiked through Gullfoss, Skуgafoss, Hengifoss, and fiingvellir, and I HIKED UP AND THROUGH A GLACIER! Me! All 240 pounds of me.    I became a superhuman on that trip. I'm a fat, Black woman with Lupus who hikes glaciers, mutherf*ckers! My outdoor exploration unlocked something in me. After that, I was unstoppable!   When I returned home, I wanted to hike all the time. I bought sturdy hiking shoes. I started reading outdoor magazines, watching Eco-Challenge and going into every outdoor store. I was inspired…but I never saw anyone that looked like me.   I didn't let that stop me. I've been moving since, continuing to have solo journeys and proving to myself time after time that just because I look the way I do, doesn't mean I'm not strong and powerful - nor does it mean that these adventures are not for me!”   “I'm undertaking my biggest challenge yet. I am hiking the Pacific Northwest Trail, from the Continental Divide to the Pacific Ocean. I am hiking to change the narrative. It matters to me to share my journey because not only did I not think I couldn't do this as a child, but I never even knew stuff like this existed.   I know my story will have bigger resonance with others. I know I can be the representation I never saw. I want to offer an invitation to a journey of self-discovery and an introduction to a lifelong passion.  And I hope we can do this together. — Kisha Jarrett”   New episodes of the Tough Girl Podcast go live every Tuesday at 7am UK time - Hit the subscribe button so you don't miss out.    The Tough Girl Podcast is sponsorship and ad free thanks to the monthly financial support of patrons.    Support the mission to increase the amount of female role models in the media.

Across the country, an alarming and disproportionate number of black girls and teenagers were involved in police use of force cases, according to a recent analysis by The Marshall Project. The nonprofit news organization, which focuses on criminal justice in America, found that thousands of minors each year are subjected to what police consider “low level” use of force ranging from being tackled to the ground to having guns pointed at them. Reporters analyzed about 4,000 records of incidents from six major cities and found that Black girls made up 20 percent of the youth involved compared with white girls at 3 percent. We'll talk with the Marshall Project reporters about police use of force against young people and the significant psychological trauma that it can cause.

On this episode of the See It To Be It podcast, we talk to Shayla Varnado, who is a fashion stylist turned entrepreneur and wine connoisseur. She is passionate about inspiring women to live the life of their dreams and is the founder of Black Girl's Wine, which is an international organization for black women who share a passion and love for wine, while being committed to celebrating Black Girl Magic. Shayla's background consists of her growing up wanting to be a fashion stylist. She says she has always had a passion for fashion and she even studied fashion in college at Old Dominion University. She later in life started a fashion business, that specialized in helping the everyday women show up better in their lives, by piecing together a wardrobe that was suited for a woman going to work, having a date night, a girls night out, or even just attending a soccer game. She would make sure that her customers would have an outfit ready for wherever life may take them. She said that she would have key pieces in their closet to always make them feel fabulous. Now Shayla runs an international organization called Black Girl's Wine. She says that it is for black women who love wine. Running this organization, along with the sisterhood full of amazing women she has created, brings her immense amounts of joy. As for what inspired Shayla, she said she looked around the wine industry and noticed a huge lack of diversity and inclusion. She noticed that there was never a black person on a wine advertisement in the media or even in stores. She then realized there was a whole market being ignored, a market that loves wine, having a good time and hanging out and trying new things. Shayla knew that she had to step in. That is mainly where her inspiration came from for her society. The wine industry is very white-male dominated and it's amazing that black women are becoming a part of this industry with the help of Shayla. Shayla talks about how she runs a partner program to include other black and women owned wine companies in her society. This partner program refers her members to black winemakers and women winemakers. They host events together and offer discounts to their members in exchange. She says to drive memberships, they just started a live partner show which is a live event in their private Facebook group that introduces wine makers to over a thousand wine lovers. This offers exposure to women winemakers and winemakers of color. She also says that the partner program is not just about exposure, but gives a chance for the winemakers themselves to build a relationship with their audience. Shalya loves helping out other black and women owned winemakers, while also sharing her love for wine with her society. Shayla also recently co-authored the book, 44 Prayers for the Christian Entrepreneur, which was inspired by her faith. Shayla said she is just the copilot and her captain is God. She co-wrote the book with her God sister who is an entrepreneur as well. She wanted to share some of the prayers that have got her through all of life's challenges. These prayers have helped navigate and guide her through the entrepreneurship lifestyle and hardships that come along the way. Want to become a member of Black Girl's Wine?

(9:46) Email marketing isn't something you do TO your subscribers. (11:35) What is a retargeting sequence? (13:20) What can an abandoned cart email sequence do for your and your subscribers? (16:18) Why timeliness is important in abandoned cart emails. (17:22) Why you need to personalise your email campaigns. (18:35) Why you want to 'nudge' your subscribers. (19:50) How to create the best cart abandonment emails for each of your products. (23:05) Subject line of the week with Chelsea Martinus. What is email automation?For Chelsea, automation is the key to a seamless client journey. When you're looking to connect with people who are a great fit for your community, you're not just sending them emails to convince them to buy, right? (Right?) Email marketing is a way of creating a connection with your audience. And the easiest way to do that is through automation. Why? Because email automation helps you foster a relationship with your subscribers and connect with them in a way that's authentic. It also helps you produce high-quality content that will get them to reach their goals. In other words, email automation allows you to build relationships that surpass a transaction and the exchange of money for services and goods. You can use email automation to let your community know they're not alone. This is you showing them they have someone in their corner they can turn to when they don't know what to do in a particular area of their business or life. Have we convinced you about the benefits yet? Email marketing isn't something you do TO your subscribersUnfortunately, a lot of people think of email marketing as a thing they do TO their subscribers. But it's not like that at all! It's about the subscribers' journey and their path through your email system - that's the big difference. Creating automated campaigns allows you to take all your customers on the same journey. Isn't that amazing? And the key to achieve this is to make your emails so good that your subscribers will want to be on our list because they're genuinely looking forward to our emails, rather than being there because they downloaded a cool lead magnet once. What is a retargeting sequence?A retargeting sequence is a campaign that gets sent when a subscriber has clicked on a product but hasn't bought it yet. We have a specific email sequence about this that we teach inside our membership, https://get.emailmarketingheroes.com/league/ (The League). We call it the Tell Me More sequence, and as Chelsea put it, it's probably one of the most underrated email automation campaigns for service providers. Because a lot of people think the automation stops when the subscriber buys. Or when they don't. And that's not quite the case. Chelsea explains that if you're running a campaign and presenting an offer you believe in – one that's going to help people solve problems - then you need to take a moment to re-engage and retarget those people. Chelsea refers to these campaigns as retargeting sequences or click sequences. If you work in e-commerce, you've probably heard the phrase abandoned cart sequence. What can an abandoned cart email sequence do for your business?Your retargeting  (or abandoned cart) campaign allows you to check in with any subscribers who clicked on your link but didn't buy. Do they have any questions? Why didn't they go ahead and purchase? Asking these types of questions...

René Brooks, our guest host of Distraction for ADHD Awareness month, is joined by Brendan Mahan, an ADHD coach and founder of the ADHD Essentials website and podcast, to continue their conversation from our previous episode about a wide range of ADHD issues. Brendan shares a "recipe for empathy" that he uses when supporting his clients and others through their challenges that you can use too. The pair also offer advice for parents struggling with their kids, and talk about the importance of finding the right consequences and solutions to your kids' actions and choices. They discuss how taking away video games and other things a child enjoys doesn't usually yield the results parents are seeking, and can end up damaging their relationship instead.  Learn more about Brendan's work, website and podcast, ADHD Essentials, HERE.  We want to hear from you! CLICK HERE TO TAKE OUR LISTENER SURVEY.

Even With The Best Support Systems You Still Have ADHD

René Brooks, our guest host of Distraction for ADHD Awareness month, is joined by Brendan Mahan, an ADHD coach and founder of of the ADHD Essentials website and podcast, for a conversation about normalizing ADHD and having permission to be yourself. The pair talk about why some ADHD issues are seen as character flaws and negative traits, rather than as challenges and struggles that go along with being neurodivergent. Brendan likens it to using an inhaler for asthma. People don't call you lazy or stupid for not being able to breath properly, so why is it different when someone has trouble with executive functioning? René also highlights the fact that ADHD doesn't go away. Even with the best support systems in place, medication, reminders, timers and everything else, you still have ADHD and things won't always be  perfect. She and Brendan stress the importance of moving forward, even when things don't go to plan.
