This, by far, was one of the hardest podcasts for me to record.
In this week’s episode of the Business of Becoming, I share with you in real-time, how I am processing my own white privilege, and my racism. Yes, that is a hard pill to swallow and even harder to say out loud. Admitting that I am racist is not something that I ever thought that I would do, but I wouldn’t be able to do this work without first admitting that.
Join me as I share my very stressful thoughts, my assumptions, and the awarenesses that I’ve had, and how I’m handling them, even though this is more than slightly terrifying. I know that I need to share because doing this work is never easy, that’s why it’s called work.
I am doing this with the full intention and the full awareness that I am a beginner in this work and that I will not say the right things, I will mess up, but I am here. I’m here for this conversation and I am here to do this work.
I hope that you’ll listen with an open heart.
