Today I took a chance at Leadership, I gave a speech,members voted, and I was elected Secretary of the NYC HPG for 2020 woot woot!!!😁💃🏿🌍 In addition to that great news: To further promote PrEP awareness and use, the New York State Department of Health has declared October 20 to 26 as PrEP Aware Week. Expanding the use of PrEP (pre-exposure prophylaxis) is a pillar of the efforts to End the Epidemic of HIV in New York City and New York State. To further promote PrEP awareness and use, the New York State Department of Health has declared October 20 to 26 as PrEP Aware Week. We want to make sure that all New Yorkers know that: · PrEP reduces the risk of getting HIV during sex by about 99% for cisgender men (and over 90% for cisgender women) and does not interfere with hormone therapy or birth control. · Medical clinics throughout New York City have experience providing PrEP. · Financial support – including the State’s PrEP-AP program – can make PrEP affordable for everyone, including undocumented immigrants and people who are uninsured or underinsured. #prepawareness#prep#educate#nychpg2019#sheready#nychpg#2020#hiv#communityorganizing#communitybuilding#nychealthy#healthysexuality#healthysexual#communitysupport#healthandwellness#prep#pep#linkagetocare#treatment#jointhefight#educate#advocate#motivatedaily
Stop making excuses. Stop letting that inner critic, those limiting beliefs and the voice that says you can’t, take over your life. Stop sabotaging and telling yourself you’re not worth it because you ARE.✨ ✨ How different could your life be if you stopped letting fear get in the way of your dreams? Would you start to see all of the opportunities that arise and forget all of the reasons that tell you you can’t, you shouldn’t or you’re not good enough to succeed. ✨ I want to remind you that you’re no different than anyone else. You have those thoughts creep into your head that tell you why bother? They tell you you’re a fraud, you’re too old or you’re just not cut out for it. ✨ What separates the successful from the ones that stand on the sidelines is buying into those thoughts. How different could your life be if you STOPPED buying into those negative thoughts? ✨ #stopit
They say you’ve gotta give the people what they want, right? And one of the questions I am most frequently asked is “Are you going to sing?’ Seriously, that’s my most FAQ lol. Not are you going to talk about hashtags, or how do I get more clients… it’s all about the singing. The irony is, that I’m not a great singer by any stretch of the imagination. Randy Jackson is constantly in my mind saying, “Yo, you’re pitchy Dog,” but apparently my audience doesn’t care. They want to have fun when they learn, so I sing and dance and rap old school Slick Rick and it’s a good time! I wonder, if I should introduce some of that “EduTainment” into my social media videos. What do you think? Would you watch a FB live or a YouTube video with me teaching you about Social Media to the tune of Meghan Trainor’s All About the Bass? ‘Cause Dog, I’ll do it!
👊💆 How to handle client drama like a BOSS . If you’re a VA, OBM or SMM then you’re going to experience conflict with your clients at some point. . (Cause let’s be frank. If you’re a HUMAN, then you’re going to experience conflict with other HUMANS.) . This is no big deal because it’s just how life works. . The thing is… there’s a way to handle client conflict that gets you the results you WANT. There’s a way to make sure you salvage your client relationship rather than burn a bridge. . → You gotta acknowledge the story you’re creating from the situation. . Let’s say you get an email from a client asking why a certain task has yet to be completed. You’re super confused because you told this client it would get done by end of day and it’s only 5 PM. You’re thinking you have 3 more hours since your end of day is 8 PM. . (You see where I’m going here??) . Before you respond, acknowledge the stories you’re creating about this client and her email. Acknowledge that you might be thinking this client is super disrespectful, rude, asking too much or being pushy. . Then, instead of letting yourself take hold of these shitty stories, take 👏 a 👏 step 👏 back and acknowledge what’s TRUE. . Like… maybe 5 PM is your *client’s* end of day. Maybe she’s not realizing your end of day is different because she’s a human who has a lot on her brain. . You could be super reactive and respond feeling upset that your client is interrupting your day like this. Or you could say, “Hey, sister friend! I am totally committed to getting this done by the end of the day. My end of the day is 8 PM since I work a little bit after my kids go to bed. I will be sure to get it to you by end of day as committed.” . Easy peasy, right? . This is TOTALLY different than responding from ego or frustration and will COMPLETELY change how you feel about your clients! . I’d love to know: How do you step back to figure out what’s TRUE?

You ever just eat a spoonful of something & instantly feel tradition ? Culture? Home? We’ll black eyed peas (made well) is it for me! I had the honor of taking myself out for date night in Harlem. I could see so many people watching my table waiting for my date to come eat. I made up stories in my head about what they were saying with their eyes peering at me like something was wrong. But nope! No shady husband or late boyfriend it was just me😂 And as I sat there enjoying my meal while people gawked all I could think was how good the peas were & how much it made me feel at home even though I’d never lived in NY. Never mind the beautiful historical pictures & throwback decor. The food had me right at home. Good meals will connect you to something beyond the plate - every food vendor or restaurant owner knows the food has to do more than just feed the belly it needs to feed something else inside the patron as well. @sylviasrestaurant knows that culture foods have a root in the community and that a plated experience can be calming or even healing - good food does that. And as I finished and got ready to leave I saw faces of onlookers turn from confused to content. I saw some of the women uncover expressions of approval or pride in seeing another woman content in her own presence. Being true to yourself will do that too. If there’s 2 things we all like it’s genuineness & memorable experiences. These are a couple of the most necessary and often forgotten business strategies. No matter what your industry may be just being you and creating something people will remember is the key to being and staying successful... all the other stuff will add itself. Just keep living & mind your grind! • • • • • • #startup#smallbusiness#datenight#lifecoach#biztips#successtip#entrepreneur#onlinestrategies#speaktriece#beyourownversionofamazing#creativebusiness#soulpreneur#bosslady#thegetyourlifecoach#theinspiredlifepodcast#legendary
