Who is this program for?
This 6-week program is for you if you:
Identify as a Black women (this means trans Black women, cishet Black women, queer Black women, etc.—if you identify as a Black woman, you are welcome here. Period. 🌈)
Have 7-15 years of working experience (think mid-level career)
Have a clear goal that you’d like to work towards over the next 3-6 months (some examples are in the intro above)
Are feeling overwhelmed by all the steps you need to take to achieve your goals, and need help getting organized and prioritizing things
Are open and interested in networking with and being supported by other like-minded Black women
Our Shared Goal 🎯:
By the end of our 6-week program you will walk away with a clear, goal-oriented plan to reach the next chapter of your journey, as you see fit.
By Committing to This 6-Week Journey You Will:
Learn to Be More Intentional &
Embrace a Growth-Mindset 🌱🧠
Let Go of Fear
Develop a Clear Actionable Plan for Achieving Your Goals 🎯
Everything we do over this 6-week journey will center around fostering a growth-mindset. What does this mean? Together we will work towards shifting our mindsets away from a fixed-mindset (and in some cases even a scarcity mindset), and towards an abundance mindset of embracing and leveraging challenges, mistakes, and even failures (yeap, failures) to continue elevating ourselves.
Black women are constantly told (and due to internalized oppression, many of us also believe) that we have to work “twice as hard” to achieve success. And for many of us when we fail at something or even make a minor mistake, we can be incredibly harsh on ourselves.
During our 6-week journey, we’ll work towards unlearning this negative behavior and learn how to give ourselves more grace.
Together we will work towards developing a clear, actionable, goal-oriented plan to help you achieve your goals.
As much as I believe in the magic of #manifesting, I wholeheartedly believe that manifesting is best done with some form of strategy.
You’ll learn how to be more intentional about defining your goals and how to strategically “project manage” your life.
As much as I love being a “strong Black woman,” it took me a long time to realize that asking for help isn’t a sign of weakness. In fact, the most successful people have help—they have a network, a team of supporters. I’ve helped hundreds of Black women with their career journeys, and easily the biggest roadblock is fear. Two themes often arise: fear of failure and fear of seeking help. I covered fear of failure above (in the first bullet) so I won’t repeat that here. But when it comes to seeking help, especially through networking, many Black women have expressed to me that they don’t want to come off as “too needy” or “thirsty” even. But truly, as the saying goes: “your network is your net worth.” And I can attest to that–I’m nearly 3 years into running my business full-time and all of my clients to date have come to me through my network. Let’s pivot our way of thinking.
Check Out the 6-Week Curriculum Below
Week 1: At a high-level, who are you and what is it that you’re trying to achieve? We’ll use this session to craft and refine your very own “mission statement” that will serve as your “north star” or “guiding light.”
Week 2: Using your personal vision statement, we’ll start to map out your goals for the next 3-6 months. We’ll also explore your current habits, thoughts, and beliefs, and how they are negatively or positively contributing to your goals.
Week 3: “Be yourself so that the people looking for you can find you.” — Arlan Hamilton. Regardless of what you’re trying to achieve, it will require the buy-in of others. In this session we’ll explore approaches for highlighting and embracing all of the amazing skills and experiences that make you you, so that the folks who are in need of what you have to offer, come to you. #manifesting
Week 4: In this session we’ll not only explore the benefits of both giving and receiving feedback, but you’ll learn some new tools for doing both. You’ll come prepared with at least two items that you’d like feedback on (for example, your updated LinkedIn profile or an elevator pitch for your business).
Week 5: I genuinely believe that networking is the key element to success. In this session we’ll unpack and explore current beliefs that we have towards networking and asking for help. We’ll explore some tools and techniques for building a network that manifests opportunities for you.
Week 6: Overcoming Roadblocks & Next Steps
Rarely will achieving goals come without a set of challenges. In this final session we’ll talk about ways to keep yourself motivated and push past roadblocks, mistakes, and failures. We’ll wrap up by discussing ways to keep yourself accountable after the program concludes and tie up any loose ends.
Week 1: Defining Your Personal Vision Statement
Week 2: Articulating Your Goals
Week 3: Showcasing Your Identity
Week 4: Embracing Feedback as a Gift
Week 5: Networking & Relationship Building
Week 6: Overcoming Roadblocks & Next Steps

The Fine Print
One thing about me, is that I'm all about transparency. Below you'll find some additional details about logistics and all that jazz.
Cost: Pay-what-you-can (suggested $500 donation). After some reflection, I've decided to convert all of my coaching offerings (including 1-on-1 coaching) for Black women to a pay-what-you-can model. The value of this program is around $500, but you can pay what you are able to, and at the cadence that you want (for example, if you want to drop me a few coins each week of the program, I'm cool with that... or if you want to donate at the end of the 6 weeks, that's also ok. Or if you just don't have it, that's cool too.). Please note that donations are non-refundable.
Six (6) interactive weekly group sessions via Zoom on Wednesdays from 8 - 9 PM EST (Note: The September-October 2022 cohort sessions will be on 9/7, 9/14, 9/21, 9/28, 10/5, and 10/12)
Small-group sessions (no more than 15 participants accepted per cohort)
One (1) 30-minute 1-on-1 coaching session to work on a topic of your choice (e.g. reviewing your resume, practicing interviewing skills, editing your LinkedIn profile, organizing your goals, etc.) Additional 1-on-1 sessions may be scheduled if you'd like.
Handouts & worksheets are included to support your goals
Weekly, actionable assignments are expected to be completed ahead of each session
24/7 accountability and group support (as a group we’ll decide which platform the majority prefers, such as Slack, Signal, group text, WhatsApp, etc.)
Participants are expected to attend all six sessions. This is a group effort (as they say, it takes a village), so I ask that you commit to supporting your own goals as well as being part of the support system for the other women in the group by participating in all six sessions.
You will be asked to sign a very straightforward, transparent coaching agreement that outlines both of our (you and I) roles and responsibilities, as well as your commitment to participating in a safe, payment info, and your willingness to maintain a safe, confidential group setting for all participants.
Don't hesitate to drop me a line! I'll get back to you ASAP.
