Cultivating Intimacy In A Relationship While Honoring Your Career

Cultivating Intimacy In A Relationship While Honoring Your Career

This week, I chatted with Sherica A. Matthews about developing and cultivating emotional intimacy in a relationship with your spouse or partner while also running your business or pursuing a successful career. As moms, partners, business owners, career-women, or some combination of all four, sometimes (okay, maybe a lot of the time) we struggle with maintaining that strong relationship with our partners. With the added pressure of teleworking and virtual school, a lot of us are stressed, busy, and struggling now more then ever. So, I figured we were long overdue for a conversation about the challenges we face with building emotional intimacy in our relationships and how to overcome those issues. My biggest takeaway? Relationships are abstract, so there's no "right way" to handle them. As far as relationship advice, tips, ideas, etc. take the concepts that you find the most helpful and adapt them to your specific situation. **More info on our sponsor, Lisa's Maker Space, HERE.

Dating & Finding Love Abroad With Cassandra T. Le

Dating & Finding Love Abroad With Cassandra T. Le

It's a "very special episode" of TRIBE Culture LIFE this month! (And, if you get that reference, you're my people!) In honor of Valentine's Day this month, I decided to chat with Cassandra T. Le about dating abroad, falling in love, and maintaining your sense of community while living and working abroad. We started the episode off with a little background on Cassandra's decision to move to Spain and it was so much fun hearing about that process firsthand. Moving across the world is no easy feat, and Cassandra's adventurous spirit and willingness to step out of her comfort zone are what drew me to her story in the first place. I'm almost certain those traits helped set the scene for her to meet and fall in love with her partner. Are you looking for love abroad? Or maybe just intrigued by Cassandra's story? Listen as we chat about her journey so far and the beautiful life she lives with her partner in Málaga, Spain. Pin It For Later! IN THIS EPISODE, WE DISCUSS Cassandra's background as a Vietnamese American living and working outside of DCThe culture-shock of relocating from a large, diverse metro area to a small town in SpainWhat it was like to integrate into a completely foreign cultureFinding love abroadDating and communicating with a language barrierWhere to settle?

Black Owned Guided Journals + Best Self-Improvement Tools For Beginners With Nya Jones Of Inside Then Out

Black Owned Guided Journals + Best Self-Improvement Tools For Beginners With Nya Jones Of Inside Then Out

Another month, another Black-owned business! I felt like January was THE PERFECT time to share one of my favorite Black owned guided journals with you all, so I was super excited to chat with Nya Jones, the owner of Inside Then Out about the best best self-improvement tools for 2021 and, of course, her Better Every Day Journal. I originally connected with Nya on Instagram and ended up featuring Inside Then Out in a Black Owned Gift Guide I created for the holidays. With folks continuing to spend more time indoors (thanks, COVID) self-improvement has been and will continue to be the name of the game as we move through 2021, so I knew I wanted to feature Nya and her guided journal as part of my January Black Owned Business of the Month feature. If you're new to the self-improvement space, the terms self-improvement and personal development may seem a little vague, but I loved how Nya broke these larger-scale ideas down into bite-sized nuggets and actionable tips that we can all immediately put to use in our everyday lives. Nya was such a treat to chat with; whether you're a newbie or you're experienced in the self-improvement arena, you're definitely going to want to listen! **More info on our sponsor, Lisa’s Maker Space, HERE** Pin It For Later!

Tips & Resources For Conscious Parenting Beginners + More On How To Decolonize Your Parenting With Yolanda Williams

In today's episode, I discuss the best tips and resources for conscious parenting beginners with Yolanda Williams, of the Parenting Decolonized podcast and Conscious Parenting Time. I originally joined Yolanda's Facebook community, Conscious Parenting For The Culture, when my oldest turned two and I realized the discipline methods we had employed so far were not working. From the nuggets of wisdom Yolanda and her team drop every day, to the daily thoughtful discussions surrounding conscious and decolonized parenting and the incredibly helpful bite-sized units in the group, I have learned so much and my husband and I have been able to shape a beautiful and respectful relationship with our babies. When I started TRIBE Culture LIFE back in October, Yolanda was one of the first guests I reached out to, so I am super excited to share our discussion this week.
