Make Deep Connections (with Myleik Teele)

Episode 29

About the Episode

How many times in our lives have we said NO to YES things because we’ve convinced ourselves that we are not the best or not good enough? How many times have we wondered if we are charging what we are worth for the work that we’re doing? And how many times do we wish for a squad that will have our back through thick and thin? This conversation with CURLBOX Founder and Chief Experience Officer Myleik Teele is one for the books!

In this conversation from my Professional Troublemaker book tour, I’m talking with Myleik about coming back from my traumatic experience of negatively trending on Twitter to becoming a New York Times bestselling author for the second time, and how my squad reaffirmed my greatness and inspired me to remember who I was. And Myleik gives me flowers for being an awesome friend and inspiring that same greatness in those I’m connected to. This episode is everything and was truly a salve for the soul, sprinkled with noir pixie dust and you need it in your life.

Things that are for me, remain for me until I’m ready for them.

Nothing has passed me by.
