Lady Phyll: Mother of the Movement
Play • 1 hr 15 min

At one of the lowest moments of my life, Lady Phyll reached out, literally held me and helped nurse me back to life. She's well-known as the co-founder and executive director of UK Black Pride and for turning down an MBE from the Queen in 2016 in protest of this country's colonial legacy. She is a mother, activist, lover, mentor and icon to many and her life is best described in her own words. We speak at length on resilience, rebellion and protest; the tender woman behind the activist; and what hopes she has for her daughter, for UK Black Pride and for all of us.

Level Up! Level Up! 🥰 Evaluate, Share, and Elevate!
Making Art Work is open through tomorrow! Join us if you're ready for some massive growth in 2021 But first, let's take it back. In 2010 when I officially began my fine art career I did NOT have an aspirational brand. I didn’t even know I had a brand (though, yes, I did — we all do). I was deeply undervaluing my work, my voice, my efforts, and, in doing so, I was also undervaluing my collectors. Think about it this way — if someone buys something for their home or themselves, they want to enjoy that thing. It matters to them. They find pleasure in it. In order to enjoy something, we have to VALUE it. When you know what you create and WHY it matters, you can easily and naturally share that love with your audience. So HOW do you elevate your work? Head consistently in the right direction. Know WHY you create and why that matters Understand your works value and aesthetic merits Recognize the overall impact your work is creating as a whole (this is your brand) Consistently raise your expectations for what your work can be in the world. THIS IS A LIFELONG PROCESS I began my business by selling a $1 painting. I grew from that deeply undervalued place to a creative practice with collectors on every continent, consistently sold-out collections, and a practice that offers me financial and emotional freedom. LET’S START THAT JOURNEY Sharing, writing, and talking about your work is never truly easy. It is a vulnerable act of bravery! But, without that bravery, your work is mute. Your work is hidden. And that’s not what it was designed for! With your why and your vision in mind, think of how to translate that to the world. If this feels overwhelming right now, DON’T WORRY. This is the focus of Making Art Work and I will coach you through this process. View your brand from the outside. How does your work objectively feel to your ideal customer or collector? When you share your work with your audience online is your work being elevated and valued? How about in-person? There are ALWAYS ways to continually elevate and build-up, and REFINE your work, marketing, and presentation. This is a good thing! It means you get to keep creating and refining! As you go through this process, don't be too hard on yourself. Remember, you are just finding paces to play inside your business! When needed, give yourself a COMPLIMENT SANDWICH. (it works on others and it works on yourself) * Give yourself a two compliments + with an improvement in the middle Remember, sustainability = satisfaction + progress. If you don’t find joy in your work you are going to be burnt out. Making Art Work is open through tomorrow! Join us if you're ready for some massive growth in 2021 IF YOU HAVE BEEN GIVEN SOMETHING BEAUTIFUL TO SHARE, YOU HAVE ALSO BEEN GIVEN THE CREATIVITY, ENERGY, KNOWLEDGE, & RESOURCES NEEDED TO SHARE IT.

"The Little Things" with John Lee Hancock
John Lee Hancock’s recent film, “The Little Things,” brings to life many key aspects of viewer engagement and character development that translate from the cinema to the page. Through excellently written mystery and complex, relatable characters, he hooks viewers early on and keeps them on their toes throughout the movie. Hancock is an accomplished screenwriter, director, and producer who is well known for his role in films like “My Dog Skip,” “The Alamo,” and “The Highwaymen.” To get tickets to “The Little Things,” follow the link below. From RottenTomatoes.com: The "feel good movie" may never have had a bigger proponent than John Lee Hancock. As a writer, director, and producer of high profile feature films, Hancock introduced his earnest and often sentimental sensibilities to sports movies like "The Rookie" (2002) and "The Blind Side" (2009), show business pictures like "Saving Mr. Banks" (2013), and the occasional fairy tale jaunt, including "Maleficent" (2014). Achieving big numbers at the box office and awards recognition in the process, Hancock established himself over the course of his decades in the filmmaking game as a reliable perpetrator of crowd-pleasing entertainment. Although intermittent attempts at darker and more severe material proved substantially less fortuitous, Hancock powered through these missteps to become a veritable fixture in the family-directed film community. Whether you’re traditionally published or indie, writing a good book is only the first step in becoming a successful author. The days of just turning a manuscript into your editor and walking away are gone. If you want to succeed in today’s publishing world, you need to understand every aspect of the business - editing, formatting, marketing, contracts. It all starts with a good book, then the real work begins. Join international bestselling author J.D. Barker and indie powerhouses, J. Thorn and Zach Bohannon, as they gain unique insight and valuable advice from the most prolific and accomplished authors in the business. In this episode, you’ll discover: * What Hancock’s writing process looks like * How “The Little Things” was influenced by the times * Why Hancock avoided making the film contemporary * Why the existential third act is so important * How to break free from conventional genres * The pros and cons of certain creative decisions Links: Complete the listener survey by 11:59 p.m. Eastern on February 28, 2021 and win a chance for a private one-on-one consultation with J.

Session 196: Understanding Complex PTSD
The Therapy for Black Girls Podcast is a weekly conversation with Dr. Joy Harden Bradford, a licensed Psychologist in Atlanta, Georgia, about all things mental health, personal development, and all the small decisions we can make to become the best possible versions of ourselves. While many of us may be familiar with Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD), you might be less familiar with Complex Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (C-PTSD). To help us understand the differences between the two and to provide some context for C-PTSD, today I’m joined by Licensed Psychologist Dr. Janelle Peifer. Dr. Peifer and I discussed some of the causes of CPTSD, how it impacts interpersonal relationships, how we often overlook experiences as traumatic, an example of what this might look like based on the Duke of Hastings from Bridgerton, and she shares some of her favorite resources for you to dig in a little further. Resources Mentioned Visit our Amazon Store for all the books mentioned on the podcast!
