Uzoma’s CreativeMornings activity
I threw myself into a totally new role at the age of 40 was, to say the least, very humbling. All of a sudden I had to find myself asking for help, saying I didn't know how to do things, and crying a lot.
Just because I'm different from you, doesn't mean I owe you an explanation for my difference.
When you go through adversity, you shouldn't pity the life you have; you should respect it and don't question it.
It's okay to get to a point in life and realize what you're doing isn't for you anymore.
We live with the repercussions of just existing with the melanin in our skin, so just speak the truth.
We live in a society that deems the feminine as a negative—don't be a pussy, stop being a bitch, to be female is to be weak. I was told yesterday that I had balls because of the way that I run our company—a male attribute assigned to my strengths and successfully coding three businesses. Men in business, please understand that this practice is bullshit; it's hurtful, demeaning, and it's not me being a whiny bitch by saying it.
We need to surround ourselves with the right people.
It was the best experience that ever could have happened to us because it was the worst experience that could have happened to us. We needed it to happen because we needed to be humbled.
The most important part of any talk is the Q&A: questions and application, not just answers.
Who is your circle of influence?
Are those people speaking in to your world? Or are you speaking into their world?
We need people around us.
The way we start our day, determines the way we finish our day.
