Women in Corporate Management

Some Women Hold All The Cards...

I often times express how I feel about Corporate America, however, these ladies made me see things slightly different. The guests on my show are powerful, strategic, forward-thinking and professional women.  They were the epitome of what well-spoken, articulate professionals should look like. The Topic: Women in Corporate Management on RCR! Presents Real Discussions was insightful as my guests Latoya Parker, Reyna Jones, Lee Ashby Watts and Diana Lee Caplinger talked about their journey from education to current positions.  These women love what they do from a Digital Communications Strategist to Chief Marketing Officer to COO to Senior Leader in Program Management.  Their experiences spanned across several different markets, demographics and corporate cultures.  They have learned to pay attention, stay informed and plan their next move.  It’s been exciting for them, fun and rewarding.  Not one of them would want to change what they’ve had to do to get to the top.  Their advice for the masses…

Be prepared, know what you want and put in the work.

~ Embrace your multi-cultural lifestyle and experiences

Health and Wellness

RCR! Presents Blog Image Ep. 59.png

Health and Wellness are 2 words, we like to see go hand and hand. Especially, when it’s the beginning of a new year.

We are becoming more and more aware of our food options and choices. The pesticides and steroids that are placed on and in our foods are unacceptable.

Chef Jamel Thompson and Jackie and Janae Madison were very passionate about what we eat, how it’s prepared, the portions and making sure we exercise.

Chef Jamel brings a vast amount of information to the discussion.  He studied and received his degree
His vegan food leaves your mouth wanting for more as the taste is incredible.

Jackie and Janae Madison is a mother and daughter combination that enjoys exercising and stay well together. The 6-year-old Janae holds her Mom accountable by making sure they exercise every day together. Jackie coaches people to eat appropriate portions. Both Jackie and Jamel would agree that if you’re going to eat meat, make sure it’s a good cut and the right portion. Don’t overdo it.

Both these professionals can now offer help on what and how to eat. Most people would agree that all the exercising will be without value without the proper diet and food portions to go with it. Everyone one is different, so govern yourselves accordingly.

Here’s to wishing you and yours nothing but health and wellness in 2018 and the years to come

New Jack Jingle Jam and Toy Drive

Something happens when we take a moment to give especially to children.  

Real Chicks Rock!™ was honored to collaborate this past weekend with Shuffle and Repeat for their New Jack Swing Toy Drive.  It was rescheduled due to snow in Atlanta 2 weeks ago, which made it more exciting as the event was held with only 2 days before Christmas.  The room was filled with good music, good vibes and good times.  At the end of the event, several toys were collected and some sacrificed coming out when they were not feeling their best.  We appreciate that kind of dedication and support to help others, especially during this time of year. 

Thank you to everyone that came, gave toys, made a donation and had a good time with us. The box was filled with toys that will be donated to children of domestic violence survivors from the Powerful Beginnings organization. 

Remember...


No matter how small the gift is, if it comes from a good place it will make a BIG difference.
Enjoy the REASON for the season and continue to... #ROCKon

These Women Have Something To Say...

The topic: The Power of Writing ~ An Author’s Perspective on RCR! Presents Real Discussions on Sunday was filled with laughs, smiles, and eye-opening information. My guests Fonda Clayton Smith and Joyce Reed were very transparent in their process of being an author.

They identified the pros and cons as well as the process in getting your book published. Using writing and becoming an author has helped in being an extension of their voice.

We give many heartfelt thanks ...
For everyone who tuned in. 
For the likes, the shares and spreading the word. 
To my guests for taking time out of their busy schedules to come and share with the masses.
To Instinct Radio for allowing Real Discussions to have a home.

~ Use writing to let your voice be heard.
~ Use writing to be extension of yourself, your brand and your product.

A Night Filled with Purple Promises

A Night filled with Purple Promises...

Purple has always been my favorite color and sees it on a sea of empowered women always puts a smile on my face. The date was Saturday, October 14, 2017. The location Columbus, GA Trade and Convention Center. The Event is Purple Promises Domestic Violence Awareness Gala. 

Women and men gathered in one place for a night of celebration, newness, and life. Everyone looked beautiful as the pictures were being taken, compliments were given and hugs were exchanged. Twelve (12) women were honored for their commitment to change for themselves by saying no more to enduring a domestic violence situation. 

Founder of Powerful Beginnings ~ Monika Thornton was no exception to the rule. As a domestic violence survivor herself, when she made the decision to endure it any longer, she knew she wanted to help others once they made the transition not to go back. 

Powerful Beginnings have been doing some impactful things in the Columbus, GA area so when they asked me to be the Mistress of Ceremonies, I couldn't resist. It was a wonderful night and experience for me. Meeting wonderful people, both survivors and supporters made it a night to remember.

Empowering Our Young Girls

Our Young Girls Have The Power... 


This past Sunday, on RCR! Presents Real Discussions, we identified some of the challenges and opportunities in dealing with our young girls.

 

The Topic: Empowering Our Young Girls


My guests Lynda Lee Osbourne and Katina Cunningham were filled with ideas, solutions, and programs that could help our young girls navigate through this thing called life.

Until next time...


Don’t give our children a lot of responsibility and take it back when it’s convenient for you. 


Have conversations with your children on a regular and/or daily basis.


Create the change you want to see not only for your own children but for others as well.

Let's Hear It One Time for Da' Funk...

A Conversation with Jason Orr was the topic for this past Sunday on RCR! Presents Real Discussions. Jason has always claimed Atlanta as his home and has seen it continue to grow over the years. Born in Savannah, GA and raised in the A. He was always a creative being and loved it when he was sent to his room so he could continue to create. 

In the early years, he was a dancer in group winning talent shows, he learned about lighting, production and the list goes on and on.  His love of music was always there. However, when his mom took him to legendary concerts and shows, that's when his mind was blown. 

You'll have to check out the interview to hear how FunkJazz Kafe® was birthed, all the people that Jason gives credit to and where his inspiration came from.  His film FunkJazz Kafe® ~ Diary of a Decade is a critically acclaimed must see so, when it comes to your city, don't miss it. It captures 10 out of the 23 years of the FunkJazz Kafe® era. 

Thank you, Jason Orr, for sharing and spending time with us. Thanks to Instinct Radio for letting us break this bread on air.  And thanks to you, you and YOU for listening, liking, sharing and showing support. 

Feel free to view all 3 parts of this conversation on my timeline or on the Real Chicks Rock!™ YouTube Channel.

Remember to...

~ Keep forms of inspiration close to your soul.
~ Either get your mind blown or blow minds.
~ Work on things that could leave a legacy.

Until next time, continue to...#ROCKon

A Conversation with Ken Rye - The Strategy Guy

Copy of RCR! Presents Blog Image.png

RCR! Presents Real Discussions!  

Topic: A Conversation with Ken Rye. Aired on September 17, 2017.

Ladies and Gentlemen, please meet Ken Rye ~ The Strategy Guy! 

I was fortunate that our schedules aligned and I was able to have A Conversation With Ken Rye on RCR! Presents Real Discussions. This one put me in a humble position because not only was I a fan of his when he was WCLK 91.9 FM here in Atlanta, but he also became my mentor.  His early days at the radio station taught him well as he met some of the most influential artists in the business.  His radio and business partner Ken Beatty also played a significant part in Ken's life. This year reflects 10 years since Ken Beatty has passed, however, his presence and words of wisdom live with Ken today. 

Ken has the ability to constantly see talented, skilled individuals and provide strategic suggestions that take their brand to the next level.  He gets it and understands what drives markets, global presence, and brand recognition. 

Working for major corporations was his focal point as well as bringing live shows to the Atlanta area.  Ken believes that the connections between an audience, the artist, and the music make it all magical. 

Now, Ken Rye and I work together in producing live shows and entertainment under his brand Hot Ice Live. 


There's so much to say about this guy from his early days in Detroit, growing up in Chicago and then his Morehouse years in Atlanta. Marketing, Strategic Planning and his love for music all make up the man we know and see working with so many today. He's got history, stories and loads experience to paint the picture of Atlanta, various artists and the world of entertainment. 

Go check out the full interview on the Real Chicks Rock!™ YouTube Channel.

Special thanks to Ken Rye for coming by and spending some time with me. Thanks to Instinct Radio for giving us the space and time to have the interview. 

Remember to... 

~Take every opportunity to build relationships.
~ Leave people with a good experience. 
~ Make every step lead you towards becoming legendary. 

Until next time, continue to... #ROCKon
