Let’s Talk About It – Be a pretty little thing – Molly Mae

It’s a New Year and we are here to set the tone for the year! This year, our theme is ‘working on me’ and all of our intentions this year support Black Women in uncovering the best version of themselves for themselves.

Soooooo, in this episode we get down to why taking to challenge the ‘we all have the same 24hrs statement’ is not the best action to take.

This episode is a great step into the year, tune in, like, comment and share with a friend.

Unconscious Massa

One more time for the people at the back and the front it seems… THIS IS NOT A PLANTATION!

It’s the last episode of the season and we just wanted to share a reminder as we begin to think about our plans for the next year ahead.

In this episode, we are musing over the microaggressive behaviours of managers when it’s time to part ways. From questioning your ability to progress, yet adding impossible tasks to your to-do lists, to complete before you leave, because you’re the only one who can do the job.

Listen sis, hear us queens, always remember who are, what you bring and protect your peace.

The Private Professional

Let’s explore the rise, legitimacy, motivations and pressures of the side hustle. Having a side hustle is almost part of the fabric of being a black woman working. Whether it be baking bread for church, drop shipping or a whole second profession, it is not a foreign concept for us to have a passion that has perhaps become a job.

The BWW Team discuss the needs and necessities of having a side hustle, not just for financial gain but also for our wellbeing and how easy it is to strike a balance without being burnt out or being in breach of your work contract.
