Career Crush: Layal Tinubu

"Leadership means different things to different people. However, for me…Leadership isn’t a position, it’s a mindset. Leadership is about the people you serve – the culture they keep and embrace, it’s about empathy for your customers, clients, employees and the communities where you do business, being confident enough to take risks and responsible enough to think of those who your decisions and risks may affect"

Career Conversations with Shaniqua Davis, Founder & CEO at Noirefy!

"My favorite thing about my job is the people I work with and help. They have shown me over and over again that this mission is bigger than myself. I am 100% happy with everything I’ve been able to accomplish and happy that I’ve been able to be a source of inspiration to others. This keeps me going when things get rough"

Career Crush: Kanayo Ebi

"GO FOR IT!!!! If you truly have the passion and love for it. Go for it! Find your niche and conquer. Your only limitation is you. Trust me, it’s going to be tough. It’s going to be painful,  It's going to be draining. YES, there DEFINITELY will be obstacles and hurdles trying to hold you back, that is why it’s very important you love it and do it with the right intentions, but persevere, push through, and build. Take your time to find your purpose and let that be your driving force. Be kind to yourself, celebrate yourself and most importantly always be open to learning and expanding your horizons. Don’t put any limits on yourself . Your colour, your size, your sex is not a limitation, its an allowance, a way to allow people to see your creativity, talents and beautiful things that you can add to fashion history. Make them NEED YOU, what YOU bring to the table. Build your own table. Like I always say “We Do What We Want”, make your own rules. So try and fail but keep trying, keep going and WIN!!!!"

Career Conversations with Tumi Soyinka!

"I recently re-discovered that being a creative is in my DNA. Sometimes, role dependent, working in corporate can ‘help’ you forget about the things that get you excited. Storytelling - whether through writing, partnering with dope black creatives for my podcast series, photography, branding - these are the things that tickle me"

How Jean Nicole Rivers is Empowering Writers Through Innovative Technology!

"Writing a novel is all about continuity. If you do not keep pristine cohesiveness throughout your story, you will lose your reader quickly. The details can be endless; memories, names, settings, habits, lies, themes, ages, years, etc. The better you can manage the many details of the story, the more layered and complex you can make your novel, which is a great way to keep your reader engaged"

How ELyse Fox is Innovating the Way Black Millennial Women Talk about Mental Health

" If your job doesn’t let you be creative; or you don’t have that dream job yet, use your current job as a placeholder until you are able to get your “dream” job. Make the most of your current job and use it as an investor until you get to Point B. Don’t get stagnant at your day job, volunteer and find other things that would help you reach your goal. There are so many creative jobs out there, you just have to sit down and do the research"
