I am honored to welcome to the show Marissa Williams, Shiquita Hyman, and Tiffany Moon – all amazing content creators and also founders of “Our Shades of Influence.” Our Shades of Influence is a group of three diverse women within the influencer community. Their goal as influencers is to inspire, educate, and empower people of all shades, shapes, and sizes. They strive to improve the visible shortage of partnerships between businesses and influencers/bloggers of color. As women of color, they will partner with businesses to represent their brands with integrity while helping to tap into the buying power of the minority market, because there is beauty in color.
One of the things I love about hosting this podcast, Business with Purpose, is the fact that I get the privilege of having the opportunity to have important conversations that will challenge, encourage, convict, and inspire you. I want to have conversations that educate you (and me!) to know better and to do better.
I’ve had a lot of important conversations on this podcast about racism, but honestly, probably none more important than this conversation we had right here.
This episode is a bonus episode that is outside of my normal weekly content for the show… but I pray that you take the time to sit and really LISTEN to this week’s episode and my conversation with Marissa, Shiquita, and Tiffany. I pray that this conversation would be one that would give you space to learn and grow in your anti-racism journey… and equip you with steps to move forward to take ACTION. Because I believe when we are living lives of purpose, that includes taking action where it’s needed most.
