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,

Hello Moguls,

As women entrepreneurs, we crave a life of freedom and ease. However, we’ve been conditioned to believe that we must grind endlessly until we reach a certain point when everything will miraculously become easier. We associate this with having more money, better credentials, and more experience.

But the harsh truth is that this relentless hustle-and-grind mentality is taking a severe toll on our lives, impacting us mentally, physically, and emotionally. It’s time to reconsider this way of life, not our goals and aspirations, but how we go about achieving them. There is a path to success that doesn’t require us to do it all.

The concept of being a multi-passionate entrepreneur is fantastic, especially when you have a team and another income source supporting your business. However, we’ve shifted our focus from quality to quantity, and we’ve become trapped in a never-ending cycle of managing all our multiple entities, yearning to escape the reality we’ve created.

Let’s be clear; you’ve created your current situation. Yes, you’ve manifested it. Manifesting isn’t just about attracting new cars and parking spaces; it’s about the energy you claim as yours. This includes your complaints, fears, and challenges. All of it contributes to the way you operate in business.

Consider this: you’d operate entirely differently if you felt secure in your ecosystem. But when you have too many irons in the fire, you’re constantly anxious about neglecting something.

We often hear about work-life balance, but what if we aimed to become “un-busy”? It’s a concept I just coined, but it makes sense. What if we could achieve our goals and aspirations but simplify how we do it?

Is it possible to have just one offering instead of ten and still make the same income? Absolutely. It’s like the difference between a boutique and a department store. One offers high-quality products, while the other caters to everyone. The key is understanding what you have the capacity for. Do you have the income, revenue, space, and technology for a full-time staff like a department store, or do you have a desk, a computer, and Wi-Fi? Get clear about where you are before focusing on where you want to go.

In our last post, I mentioned that we’d discuss brainstorming. It’s a crucial part of any development process. All you need is a pen and some paper. Write down your chosen subject at the top of the page, ask yourself a question, and jot down all the answers without editing yourself.

As you strive to streamline your efforts to achieve your goals, increase your personal time, and attain the freedom you desire, ask yourself, “What else can I do to reach my goals?” When you answer these questions, you’ll begin your journey towards time freedom and release the pressure of trying to do it all.

The “all” is the part we need to streamline to start living our dream life now, rather than postponing it for later.

In our next post, we’ll delve into what streamlining could look like for you.

Best wishes,

Monica Wisdom
