A letter to my brothers…

My brothers… Please be careful. You sound like the All Lives Matter crew when you question why Black Women require advocacy. You too can be an ally if you open your minds, and it would mean a lot. It’s amazing how many Black men get a little frazzled when they learn that I’m an advocate for women and women of color. They start asking questions like: “what about…

LMS Discusses #NoThanks and “Work-Jacking” on The Back Pack Show LIVE

  Let’s talk about the relationship between White women and Black women in the workplace for a moment. It’s time. Let’s keep it 💯. I had the privilege of going live on The Back Pack Show LIVE with Chris Brogan and Kerry Gorgone talking about my new book No Thanks: 7 Ways to Say I’ll Just Include Myself. I broke news there about the remix of #NoThanks that is upcoming. It’s…

Zapier: Leading in a New Video-Centric Business Environment

As I work in my private coaching practice, which blends leadership development and strategic communications, I find it interesting to hear how so many professionals are being required to have dozens of “camera-on” conversations and appearances every day.

Sis, we have to make the…

Your next could be right under your nose

Hiking a trail near the lake today reminded me of the vast possibilities we sometimes overlook that are right under our noses. I discovered an app that uncovers all the trails in the world.
