Ep 249 - Really, 2021?!
Play • 1 hr 1 min

Welcome to 2021, BA Fam.

To say the least, we are still reeling from the attack on our nation's capitol last (and DEMOCRACY ... and REALITY?) last week —OK, let's be real here the entire last four years. It was tough to find the words for this, y'all, but we are here to vent (a lot) with you and try to unpack what this means for the year to come.

We're doing the best we can to take care of ourselves and each other, and sometimes that's all we can do. But most importantly, Brown Ambition is back in business for 2021, talking about self-care, career, personal finance, and empowerment. We got some great questions this week:

28:53 - Can you really take online surveys as a side hustle?

32:52 - What's the key to finding good virtual assistants for your business?

Don't forget to check out the Brown Ambition merch store to get yourself some swag, and we'll see you all next week!

Natalie MacNeil: Your Life Is Speaking to You
Have you ever become so focused on chasing purpose and making things happen, you don’t allow things to flow naturally? When it comes to redefining wealth, our lives typically tell our story without us having to say a word. Our actions reveal our greatest strengths and weaknesses, and our rituals and daily practices reflect what we hope to attract in life. Believe it or not, our lives have a way of speaking for themselves. However, I also believe that life also has a way of speaking to us. One of the things that hold us back is the lack of trust we have in listening to our gut, or believing our intuition, our desires or our dreams. Today’s guest is here to help us tap into divine alignment and open our ears to what life is trying to teach us. Natalie MacNeil is an Emmy Award-winning media entrepreneur, founder of the Embodiment Coaching Institute, and bestselling author of five books, including her latest book: The Rituals: Simple Practices to Cultivate Well-Being, Deepen Relationships, and Discover Your True Purpose. Devoted to expanding human potential through her Transformational Embodiment Coaching Method, Natalie has been named one of "27 Women Changing the World" by Inc. and a "transformer of our generation" by Levo. She has also been featured in prominent publications including Glamour, Elle, TIME, Inc, Entrepreneur, and more. Key discussion points from this episode include: * Immigration & Inclusivity - 05:24 * Transformational Embodiment Coaching - 10:38 * Space & Grace - 14:18 * The Rituals - 21:53 * Document Your Dreams - 31:43 * The Game Of Gratitude - 44:03 This episode is brought to you by our complimentary Purpose Chasers community.

Malcolm also explains why it is important to him to make space to check in with his values every week to ensure that he remains aligned with his goals.   “You have to give yourself grace because things change; life events happen over time.
