It’s important for people to get a sense of my vibe before they decide to work with me. Value alignment and an understanding of working styles is critical for any fruitful working arrangement and partnership. My personal values are infused into how and why I work the way I do.
I love them because they help align expectations. Part of our first initial consultations will be about establishing our workflow.
All Black People
When I discuss the Black community, my focus is inclusive of ALL Black people. Working with me involves uplifting the experiences of those at the margins.
The way I work involves us staying clear and focused on the goals we’re trying to reach. Therefore, initial consultations and regular check-ins are required.
In My Lane
I lead with what I provide and how I work so that you’re better able to get support for those things that I do not include such as managing up or supporting internal operations.
I will always show you respect. Respect for your time, expertise, experiences, labor and humanity. I ask and require that back.
I believe we can manifest a better society and world. Therefore, I invite you to bring your creativity and innovation to reach the highest good with our work together.
When I dare to be powerful, to use my stregth in the service of my vision, then it becomes less and less important whether I am afraid.
