In today’s episode, we discuss self care and the value of dismantling the stigma surrounding the strong black woman, with guest Jacquelyn Perry.
Coach Joc is a mom, wife, and the self-proclaimed “Black Women’s Coach.” When she’s not enjoying a glass of Stella Rosa, or spending time with her family, she is coaching black women to see their worth. Coach Joc’s goal is to dismantle the stigma of the “strong black woman” by teaching black millennial women how to take themselves off the back burner and prioritize their healing and inner worth so they can experience more joy and deeper connections.
