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

Show Notes

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!

Nya Jones developed the concept for her Better Every Day Journal after she examined her own self-improvement journey and saw a need for more consistency and more intention with her process. When she noticed a lack of diversity in the self-improvement industry, Nya decided to create the journal she would want for herself.

Today, the Better Every Day Journal is one of the best Black owned guided journals out there. It features a beautifully designed Black textured Vegan leather cover and contains 365 (YES, 365!) prompts designed to inspire, uplift, and encourage with themes like self-awareness, love, passion, and personal growth.

I started the Black Owned Business of the Month feature as another way to highlight Black owned businesses and share them with my readers and listeners. It's so important to sow back into our community whenever possible, and it's equally important to shout out our businesses as loudly and as often as we shout out other brands and businesses. Check the Black Owned Business of the Month section each month for new features and profiles with both new and established Black businesses and brands!

How To Advocate For Yourself With Your Doctor + Google Alert! How To Determine Whether Your Source Is Actually Credible

Today's episode is a good one, ya'll! My guest, Shala Thomas, is a medical communication specialist, so she knows a thing or two about reliable sources. In this episode, we discuss everything from how to advocate for yourself with your doctor to the vaccine trials and how to determine an online source's credibility. Shala had some really good insight on how the trials went down and the safeguards put in place to help protect the general public, so I'm especially excited for you to listen. FULL SHOWNOTES HERE Pin It For Later We actually taped this episode earlier this year, but a lot of the topics (vaccine hesitancy & the Black community's mistrust for doctors in general) are still incredibly relevant today. I originally wanted to do what I could to share reliable information and help people advocate for themselves with their doctors and I think, even today, our chat will go a long way in doing that. Anyway, take a listen, and as always, come find me on Instagram to share your thoughts! IN THIS EPISODE, WE DISCUSS Shala's receipts (her background in oncology research and her journey to becoming a medical communication specialist)Shala's commitment to mentoring current students in the medical writing fieldBlack community: working through our distrust for the medical community as a wholeHow to advocate for yourself with your doctor (what to research, what questions to ask, etc.)Shala's thoughts on Tuskegee and how today's clinical trials ...

How To Start An Etsy Shop With Lisa Of Lisa's Maker Space

SPOILER ALERT: Lisa Scales is actually my Mama(: I figured she would be the best person to chat with about how to start an Etsy shop, since I've watched her build a robust business on Etsy selling handcrafted, unique gifts for several years. When the pandemic started last year, I saw her pivot and adapt as necessary to continue serving her customer and I admired her perseverance. So I, of course, wanted to feature her shop, Lisa's Maker Space, for February's Black owned business of the month and pick her brain about how she's managed to thrive in her chosen market. Both her and my younger sister own Etsy shops and, just about every morning, we have virtual strategy sessions, so this interview was basically an extension of those chats! Consider it your "behind-the-scenes" peek. I also want to add that if you've ever considered starting an Etsy shop, this episode is definitely the one to listen to! We discuss Lisa's experience starting her business on Etsy, the pros and cons of selling on Etsy, and the specific actions she's taken to be successful. She's spilling all the tea this week, so definitely check it out! **More info on our sponsor, Lisa’s Maker Space, HERE. Use code ALLDAY for your free gift!** Pin It For Later!

Sante Grace: This Black Owned Plus Size Clothing Brand Brings Style & Quality To The Plus Size Arena

Giving What It's Supposed To Give: Black Owned Plus Size Clothing That Flatters & Inspires USE CODE ALLDAY TO SAVE 15% ON YOUR SANTE GRACE PURCHASE Today's episode brought to you by my 2021 Black Owned Business Gift Guide! November's Black Owned Business of the Month is Black owned plus size clothing brand, Sante Grace! I chatted with owner and designer, Tracy Christian, about the challenges she has overcome since launching Sante Grace last year at the height of the pandemic and how she basically created her own blueprint for quality, designer-inspired plus size clothing. FULL SHOWNOTES HERE As you'll hear Tracy mention, one of the biggest pitfalls of the fashion industry is that it is inherently designed to make women feel less than, as if there's some part of their body that they need to fix in order to be able to rock the latest trend. But one of the amazing things that sets Sante Grace apart, is that Tracy creates beautiful clothing to make you feel good RIGHT NOW, not after Spanx, and not 5-10 pounds from now. I was so inspired by my chat with Tracy and I know you will be too. Enjoy!
