Danyelle Little of the Cubicle Chick 6
When I first "virtually" met Danyelle Little via her highly influential blog The Cubicle Chick (aka TCC), I was barely starting out as a budding blogger. I remember scouring her blog, literally inhaling post after post, seeing myself and so many other corporate and entrepreneur sisters and brothers through the topics discussed.  After "virtually" stalking her blog and social media channels [...]

to-turn-up-or-to-turn-in-thats-the-question_-my-version-of-a-netflix-and-chill-night-at-home
When I was approached by the fabulous Adore Me brand to write a post on my very own version of a Netflix and Chill night at home, I was excited to share my homebody , comfort-addict experience. So here’s my very own take on “turning in” when “turning up” isn’t exactly in the cards, or the stilettos, for the night... Let’s be [...]

Our "Wear to Work" feature presents a piece of professional attire recommended for corporate and business sisters. So one of the trends this Fall is velvet.

But the rebel fashionista in me decided to do a double-take into the [...]

how-to-turn-opposition-into-opportunity-at-work
“Turn your opposition into opportunity”. I was listening to a sermon by one of my absolute favorite pastors in the world, Pastor T.D. Jakes, and this phrase he used single-handedly changed my perspective on the whole concept of opposition, especially at work.

Ready, set, go! A typical morning in the life of a corporatepreneur
You've heard the term "corporatepreneur" before...Basically, it's just another term for "side hustler", except said "side hustler" also happens to be doing the 9-to-5 thing in Big Corporate. Because, you know, bills gotta get paid, shoes bought, and some (shred of) sanity preserved...And that's quite a few people out there, especially among 2o- and 30- something millennials who apparently are [...]

Embed from Getty Images The last episode of the “House of Healing: The Myth of the Angry Black Woman” aired yesterday on OWN, and I have to say, I was glued to the screen.

Bomber jackets are definitely in this Fall, and I've been browsing around to find some cool versions that would still be lady-like.

"Ok, I know I'm lucky to have a job, but I want my dream job, my calling. How do I know I'm not just wasting my life away?" This was a line I stole from one of  my latest conversations with my younger cousin, the last time she was in town visiting. Jo is your typical  millennial, highly educated, highly [...]

on-using-your-voice-and-regaining-your-power-in-the-wake-of-shootings
For a few weeks after I lost my sister, I lost my voice. Literally. I couldn’t speak, or write, or even think clearly for a while. Something inside of me went numb for some time, then rose in uncontrollable anger, then later subsided in the depths of my soul, (still) looking for peace and closure of some kind. If you’ve [...]
