This year's Mothers Day, I spent in New Orleans, LA because my mom insisted that the weather was too bad for me to drive to Lafayette, LA to see her on that day. The weather ended up not being so bad, but I didn't hesitate to go and see her because moms typically say one thing and really mean something else. Something else like - "So you're really just not going to dry down here in a storm to see your momma even though I slaved and worked my butt off all your life to make you happy?" lol
 
So, I went to see her as soon as I got the chance so that we could spend some time together, eat, and chat. My mother and I were born in different social and political climates to the point where sometimes, I just listen, because I can't relate haha... and in learning to "just listen", I continue to learn to also just accept. 
 
It is important that in our relationships, those where we may not always agree on the this moral construct or that social obligation or this or that or...you get my point, it's more important to just listen and love and the common ground will find itself. My mom and I have done that all my life - found common ground - and been able to have fun while I sometimes took it too far with my lil' mouth lol... 
 
In this conversation, my mom, Dr. Pastor Mary Brown, shares some stories, some advice, and just some of herself for you all. She's nothing new to me ..ha! ...which is why I had to share her with you! This allows me to see her in a new light and that is something very special for me to experience as well. I hope you all continue to love on your moms every chance you have. And to all of the moms in my life - Nanny, Ms. Gerri, my grandmothers (now deceased), my aunts, my mom friends, and you, if you're a mom - you are cherished and WE appreciate you! 
 
With light,

Victoria knew from a young age that she wanted to be in the Entertainment Industry.

While in High School, she found her way in front of the camera as a member of the Student Council. In College, at Appalachian State University, she walked into the radio station and knew she found her home. Working her way from a volunteer to ultimately Co-Hosting a show.

Life comes with ups and downs - in personal matters, business, political climate, finances, health, and more. One thing that Shamaka makes clear is that she is going to spread the message of liberation whether on the podium or in the streets, organizing the underrepresented communities or in the boardrooms of nonprofits and strategu agencies. I have been renewed by her clear message that we need to KNOW WHAT WE DESIRE and then ask ourselves WHAT ARE WE GONNA DO ABOUT IT!

I'm excited to share this episode, FINALLY, with you! We are talking one of our favorite things - MONEY! Let's learn how to not only make it, but keep it! Let's make schmoney moves! haha! 
 
I don't know about you all, but ladies, I'm planning on doing my shmoney dance this year! It's time to pick up the big girl wallet and plan well for a year of financial success. In the last month, I've been really enjoying listening to the book, Secrets of the Millionaire Mind by T. Harv Eker. It's AMAZING and since I don't get much time to sit still and read much these days, I love being able to listen on Audible while in the shower or driving around. I've also been writing my letters to the credit bureaus to correct information and hopefully delete some negative information too. Fingers crossed and #prayerhands. This year, I decided that it's also time for me to focus on my passion careers full time - songwriting and real estate.
 
I'm so excited but also a little jittery thinking about the change. I encourage you to BE the change FIRST and then once YOU change (mind, body, spirit), your environment natural must follow suit. I've decided that I can succeed so now I need to make the environmental changes to match my mindset. That's also why I was so thrilled to speak with Episode 16's guest, The Bankable Diva! Here's a clip from her site bio! Make sure to subscribe to my email list in the months of March and April for a chance to win a copy of her books!

If you know me, you know that I LOVE to eat! Don't let the skinny fool you. I also LOVE to learn about food and eating WELL! Ask my family; I'm sure they are tired of hearing me talk about probiotics and digestive enzymes lol.  In today's picture-crazed and likes-crazed society, we tend to forget about the importance of silence, inner-reflection, and even our health. It's all about the work we do on the inside that manifests outwardly, and what better place to start than how we feed ourselves?
 
In episode 15, I speak to Bianca Plant, a native of Lafayette, LA now located in Baton Rouge, LA! She has a Masters of Public Administration and is a nutrition blogger, working towards her license. I'm excited to have her to talk about one of my favorite things - food! We talk super food and encouraging yourself and others to eat healthy!
