Slay in Your Lane: The Black Girl Bible by Yomi Adegoke and Elizabeth Uviebenene is an absolute must-read. .
"Black Women today are well past making waves - we're currently creating something of a tsunami. Women who look like us, grew up in similar places to us, talk like us, are shaping almost every sector of society."
Reviewed as 'A prime example of how straightforward it should be to provide representation for young black girls' by Vice - and we could not agree more! .

Today is #internationaldayofpeace & this is me looking peaceful with a naked face and no filter. I have internal peace. I battle with anxiety and waves of depression but I’ve spent a lot of time cleaning up my life and working on myself to the point where so many people I deal with on a daily basis would never guess. Last night I was having a discussion with a family I have served for coming up on 2 years and the dad almost choked when I mentioned I have anxiety. We were talking about therapies and I brought up how I’m in Somatic Experience Therapy and it has drastically helped with my anxiety and nerves. He literally couldn’t believe it and that felt so good. Because from my perspective I fail often and I feel like it wins more than I do, but others just see a go getter strength.
Today I pray for your internal peace. I pray you know you are not failing even when it feels like you are. I pray others begin to speak life into you and you into others. Anxieties will not take the victory. Depression will not run the show. No mental, physical or emotional illness will take away the Glory the Father wants to bestow upon you. 🙏🏼💜
What is my most downloaded podcast to date? 🤔
The podcast that has almost DOUBLE the downloads compared to the rest of the episodes is 'How to be more confident'
The truth is there is no exact secret to gaining more self-confidence. 🍋
In fact the number 1 way to have self-confidence is by having none to even begin with!
Crazy right?! The best way to gain self-confidence is starting before you are ready for anything you want to do. 💕
Once you get over the burden of being insecure and terrified then you allow yourself to learn. If you have the courage and self-discipline to continue, then eventually you will be an expert. What I have noticed is that those who are experts in their field do not lack self confidence.
One of the biggest things you can do to gain confidence is to master a skill. Sounds silly, but its as simple as that! 👠
I can tell you right now that when I started out I was so nervous about how I would appear on social media, if I posted too frequently, if I looked boring, if I sounded weird on my podcast, etc. Confidence never happened overnight for me, but it was slowly developed overtime. 💕

Wenn es um Karriereratschläge für Frauen geht, richten sich diese meist vorrangig an weiße Frauen und deren Erfahrungshorizont. Die Britinnen Elizabeth Uviebinené und Yomi Adegoke haben mit @slayinyourlane nun einen Ratgeber explizit für schwarze Frauen geschrieben. Lesen sollten ihn alle, findet unsere Redakteurin Helen Hahne. Den ganzen Text findet ihr auf: www.editionf.com #linkinbio#slayinyourlane#empowerment#intersectualfeminism#breakingtheceiling
A tale of two work places🖱
C and I both work from home now and are enjoying the perks... Buuuut sometimes it has its challenges, too! I like to work from home because people watching at Starbucks distracts me. She likes to leave the house because... well, being at home itself is sometimes a distraction!
So we're looking for your best tips to stay focused and motivated. Do you work from home? Do you leave the house? Let us hear 'em! Lord knows we need it 😅 Drop a tip and tag a #workfromhome lady or #bossbabe below! 👇
