Never be satisfied being the only one in the room. As a Black woman I feel a responsibility to hold the door open and uplift others through the platform I'm blessed to have and the opportunities that come from it. Honestly I consider it a privilege to be able to do it. Always push and ask who else can I bring?
Don't forget you can get access to some of the products that inspire me to keep going and keep pushing in my @geeniebox! Subscribe: http://bit.ly/gbnesha17 #blackwomangenius#blackgirlmagic A PORTION OF THE PROCEEDS GO TO @blackgirlsrock

Big thank you to my girl @chanaewing and @geeniebox for bringing us all together to continue to celebrate all things #blackgirlmagic#blackwomenatwork#blackwomangenius
@laurenmaillian made a valid point, back in 2011 when the market rebounded & I graduated/entered the workforce, being unapologetically black & a black woman at work was not "on trend" yet. At my first job, I literally remember my former director asking to touch my hair during a performance review... And as @neshasagenda shared, we actually have to work THREE times as hard, for a 1/3 of what we want, and must CHEER three times as loud for each other!
Congratulations @chanaewing on your 1 year @geeniebox anniversary & @google Talk for Magic Monday! 200 people of beauty, ingenuity and ambition. Genius talks by genius women. It takes a genius to put 10 powerful women in a room to share and enlighten. In awe of the journeys, perseverance and courage. Practical tools to help create your own path. - With a side of; never apologize for your need to be apart of a community, never apologize for your ambition, never apologize for being a woman, never apologize for your culture and never hide your genius.
Tonight's #BlackWomanGenius event by @geeniebox and @Google was epic! Scroll thru for snippets of my night! As you can see, I came ready to take notes! Frankly, I'm still trying to download it all, as it was really chock full of gems and pearls of wisdom!
Overall, the message I got was that I, and we, are powerful. We are magic because we wield power, and our magic activates when we get in touch with that power, and use it for the good of ourselves and our communities. The speakers and moderators were all black women doing varying things - many of them doing multiple things side by side - but they all had a deep connection to their personal power and are wielding that power in service. So inspiring and magic activating!
Thank you thank you thank you thank you @chanaewing for your vision, and speakers @crystalmccrary (on personal disruption) @veronicawebb (on imagination) @laurenmaillian (on ownership) @thebudgetnista (on freedom) and the #blackwomenatwork panel @valeisha @neshasagenda @inhershoesblog @marciaacole @jamilahlemieux💖💖💖💖🙏🏾 #blackgirlmagic#blackwomenmagic#supportblackwomen#iloveblackwomen#prettypowerful
