Show Notes

Aaaand, welcome to episode two of TRIBE Culture LIFE! I have wanted to interview my sister, Hillary, for a while now. There are so many topics we talk about daily and every single one of them would have made for an awesome podcast episode, but I’ve always been especially fascinated with (and so proud of!) Hillary’s successful acting career.

When she first told us, her family, about her plans to become an actor, we were skeptical to say the least. I think, for some people who aren’t in her world, it’s hard to see the middle ground between the starving actor and the successful, famous actor you see in movies or on television every day. But Hillary has managed to build a fruitful, successful career that has given her so many opportunities and I was really excited to chat with her about how she’s done that.

So. If you’re considering acting. If you know an aspiring actor. If your kids want to be actors. This is the episode for you!

Oh, and the Black owned business part? Hillary recently started Joyful & Company, a luxury, Vegan, organic, cruelty-free bath & body shop. Her products are lovingly handcrafted in small batches, and the quality is top notch (my girls looove her bath bombs and I’m partial to the hand soaps; I can’t get enough of Gummy Burst). Her holiday collection recently dropped and there are some amaaazing scents there!

Unschooling Resources For Black Families + More On Sustainable Real Estate

If you're wondering how exactly unschooling and sustainable real estate go together, don't worry because you're totally going to get it after listening in on my chat with Dr. Sundiata Soon-Jahta. Dr. Sundiata and I are members of the same Conscious Parenting group on Facebook and when I came across his website, I knew I had to have him on. He wears many hats, but in today's episode, we're chatting mainly about unschooling (how it works, how it differs from traditional homeschool) and, of course, a life of sustainability as it relates to selling real estate. For example, did you know that you can participate in carbon offset programs to help balance your carbon footprint? Me either! Talk about putting your money where you mouth is! Intrigued? So was I!

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!
