Show Notes

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!

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.
