Hello, Friend,

I hope you are doing well. I wanted to take some time and share with you the story behind Monica Wisdom Coaching and why I am passionate about helping clients reach for new possibilities.

The unexpected pause of 2020 became a canvas for reevaluation, a time when I delved into a 35-year career as an entrepreneur. I reflect on the various projects and the incredible people I’ve been blessed to work with. From Sebastian International to the Isley Brothers, these were doors society said I would never cross.

But the truth is, I didn’t push through solely for the love of it. I did it because people told me I couldn’t. Black, a woman, and considered overweight, my trainer at Sebastian told me I wouldn’t make it. Despite the challenges, I was an educator for 8 years and became Director of Education for Salon Resources. Essence magazine denied my dream of becoming a writer, yet I became Director of Operations for Today in Church Magazine, interviewing celebrities like Eric Roberson, Kirk Whalum, and Vonetta Flower. Every time someone told me I couldn’t, I responded with, “Watch me work.” I was determined to defy gravity.

Every story I share stems from a deep desire to remind people, especially marginalized individuals, that we all have the power to defy gravity. In 2023, as I took a deeper dive into my purpose and passion, the needle landed on coaching. It’s the culmination of my life’s work—helping people defy gravity in their lives, build bold ideas, and embrace their divine power.

In 2023, I ensured my personal development as a business person, acquiring an education in women’s entrepreneurship from Cornell University and graduating from the Nasdaq Milestones mentorship program. Combined with my studies in coaching, I felt ready to take on the world.

In 2024, success isn’t just about constructing ideas; it’s about embracing personal transformation. Recognizing that many seek more than extensive courses, they crave a space to be heard, address specific concerns, and receive answers to their burning questions. This realization fueled the creation of Monica Wisdom Coaching.

We all deserve a champion in our corner, and with years of experience as a wise counsel behind the scenes, I’m extending a heartfelt invitation to book your discovery session with Monica Wisdom Coaching.

Happy New Year, Ladybugs,

The new year has kicked off with a bang, and if you haven’t caught the Katt Williams interview with Shannon Sharpe, it’s a must-watch. Beyond the entertainment value, it’s laden with powerful nuggets of wisdom, particularly for entrepreneurs. Katt Williams, a true independent entrepreneur, doesn’t rely on sponsors to fund his projects—truly the epitome of self-made success.

In setting the record straight, Katt strategically demonstrated the power of podcasting, showcasing how one impactful interview can reverberate globally and elevate one’s endeavors. The three-plus-hour conversation was not just brutally honest and raw; it was a masterclass in strategic communication.

While he shared his side of the story, Katt also generously dropped the keys to his success, turning this interview into a timeless piece of valuable knowledge. On my second viewing, I found myself taking notes, realizing the profound insights he shared:

  1. Be Independent: Take charge, be the boss, assume responsibility, and keep the profits flowing back to you.
  2. Be Generous: Embrace the universal principle of circulating wealth by giving back where you earn or find inspiration.
  3. Hire Women: Katt advocates for the exceptional work ethic of women, recognizing their valuable contributions.
  4. Bet on Yourself: Invest in your capabilities and potential. Katt’s gamble on creating a comedy special has evolved into 12 specials and 19 tours.

Beyond the surface drama, Katt’s business is entirely independent, providing him the freedom to create without external obligations. His advice extends to universal principles like generosity and progressive practices such as empowering women in the workplace.

If you can get past the sensationalism, you’ll uncover a treasure trove of masterful life and business advice. So, listen for yourself, viewing through the lens of an entrepreneur.

Until next time,

Monica Wisdom

Hello,

We all have a unique story waiting to be told. However, the thought of sharing it can feel strange and scary. The fear of being judged or not accepted can be overwhelming, making it difficult to embrace our own story. It’s important to know that we don’t have to share everything; just what is transformative to us. It helps remove the guilt and shame that we have attached to it. It’s an act of self-love and honesty.

Your story is our power and sharing it closes the gap in our dual life and aligns us with self-integrity. We can walk into a room without fear of being found out or shamed. Embracing our story helps us build confidence and see ourselves from a new perspective. We can own our narrative and use it to empower ourselves and others.

Let’s explore how you can own your narrative, embrace your story, and use it to transform your life. It’s time to celebrate the miracle that is you. Here are some tips to help you get started:

  1. Reflect on your journey: What are the events that have shaped you? What are the lessons you’ve learned along the way? Write down these events and what you learned about yourself.
  2. Find your voice: It’s essential to find your voice and use it to express yourself authentically.
  3. Release the shame: Write down the events that make you feel ashamed, and try to see them from a different perspective. What can you learn from those events? How can you turn them into a positive experience?
  4. Connect with others: Find a support group, a mentor, or a friend who can provide a safe space for you to share your story.
  5. Celebrate your victories: Write down your accomplishments, and take time to celebrate them.

In conclusion, owning your narrative means embracing your story and using it to empower yourself and others. It’s time to celebrate the miracle that is you. By sharing, you release the shame and guilt that may hold you back. Embrace your story, find your voice, and connect with others.

All Love,

Monica Wisdom
