    30 MAY. 2024 · “It's a necessity to pour into yourselves to be able to give back to other people.” That realization is what led professional dancers Jasmine Harper and Ashley Everett, and celebrity publicist Randy C. Bonds to form “Be > (Greater Than), a wellness brand that focuses on the importance of taking time for yourself. While all three are accomplished professionals, they’ve often worked in someone else’s shadow. For Jasmine and Ashley, it was Beyoncé. and for Randy, a variety of high-profile clients. So, this is a journey of putting themselves first and wanting others to join their self-care revolution. They share with Jeanne why it’s okay to embrace your spotlight; why an identity crisis can accompany major life changes; why we need a place where we can be vulnerable; and how they learned to Be Greater Than their titles and find their true selves.  Randy C. Bonds Randy’s a senior publicist who's worked with a host of entertainers, from Actors to Artists, who have shared their talents on the stages of Broadway, The Voice, American Idol, and an array of dancers who have worked with artists such as Beyonce, Usher, and Jennifer Lopez, just to name a few.

  • Unbecoming with Entrepreneur and Viral Content Creator Sherri (The Real Slim Sherri) Dias

    23 MAY. 2024 · After cheating death twice, Sherri Dias or the Real Slim Sherri as she’s known across social media with 3-million followers, isn’t afraid to let it all hang out. From her Gen X upbringing to her career as a loss prevention investigator, she realized the walls she built to defend herself needed to be torn down. She wants you to know the true Sherri through her work as an influencer and hopes to lead you to your own awakening or “unbecoming” as she calls it. Sherri shares with Jeanne how being an investigator hardened her; why she thinks Gen-Xers are so resilient, what has helped her stop caring what others think; the story of the miraculous car accident; how she attempts to unravel the wiring in her brain; and the gut punch that changed her attitude about living to work. The original GenX on social media. Sherri Dias is the epitome of Gen X: She grew up in a wood-paneled, powder blue carpeted house on the outskirts of Toledo where she learned to crawl to Janis Joplin, walk to the Brady Bunch and run around (wholly unsupervised) with all the other latchkey kids to the sounds of Prince and Michael Jackson. After a highly successful career as an Investigator she quit and started her own business because she craved independence and the chance to create her own personal brand. With a collective 3 million followers across platforms like Tiktok, Sherri found her edgy voice and look resonated with her generation and others on a platform supposedly built for Gen Z. It wasn’t the first time she’s proved people wrong or bucked a trend, and it won’t be the last.

  • So Many Magical Things Happen Over a Table with Renowned Sommelier Belinda Chang

She wants every part of the experience to be unique to you - a rare occurrence these days. She shares with Jeanne how a house full of friends and strangers most nights of the week led her to hospitality; why she took a non-paying job in a kitchen; how she pivoted when the world shut down during COVID; why you should NEVER buy the bar package; and why the best thing you can do is learn Excel.   Belinda Chang is a sommelier, an experiential storyteller, and lifestyle expert. She is the only bipoc woman to win a James Beard award in a drinks category in 2011 and was recognized by the Wall Street Journal as the “global virtual wine experience guru” in 2019.

  • I Was in a Prison of My Own Creation with Abolitionist, Author, and Professor Dr. Jenn M. Jackson

    9 MAY. 2024 · “We think that we’re crooked … but it is that the room is crooked.” Those words from Melissa Harris-Perry’s Sister Citizen are what sent Dr. Jenn Jackson on their path to becoming a political scientist. Those words also describe what it often feels like as a Black woman, walking into a room full of stereotypes about your body, your work ethic, your attitude … everything. As a queer genderflux androgynous Black woman, Dr. Jackson has experienced all this. They share with Jeanne how and why Black feminism is different from white feminism; why they thought working for Disney was a way to survive; why it was important for them to tell a story of self-love and self-care in their new book, Black Women Taught Us; how they finally discovered who they truly were; and why it’s important to find the people you love and love them back.    Jenn M. Jackson (they/them) is a genderflux androgynous Black woman, a lesbian, an abolitionist, a lover of all Black people, and an Assistant Professor at Syracuse University in the Department of Political Science.

They are a Senior Research Associate at The Campbell Public Affairs Institute at the Maxwell School at Syracuse University, as well. Jackson is the author of the book Black Women Taught Us (Random House Press, 2024). The book is an intimate intellectual and political history of Black women’s activism, movement organizing, and philosophical work that explores how women from Harriet Jacobs to Audre Lorde to the members of the Combahee River Collective, among others, have for centuries taught us how to fight for justice and radically reimagine a more just world for us all.

  • We Just Don’t Trust Ourselves with Speaker, Coach, and Serial Entrepreneur Jill Salzman

    2 MAY. 2024 · What do you get when you mix a multi-passionate person with a bit of boredom? Coach, speaker, and businesswoman Jill Salzman. The founder of Founding Moms likes a challenge: “Can I make money from something that sounds nuts?” Jill shares with Jeanne why trusting yourself is important; why telling everyone your mistakes helps you grow; why slowing down can reap multi-faceted rewards; how she ended up starting, growing, and selling three seemingly unrelated businesses; and why you don’t always need an “expert” for your business.   Jill Salzman turns the mundane into inspiration and transforms the impossible into the achievable. Through defying expectations and breaking the rules, she succeeds in inspiring entrepreneurs to figure out what works for them by using meaningful action to create positive results. Jill is the author of The Best Business Book In The World* (*According To My Mom) and the Amazon best-seller, Found It: A Field Guide for Mom Entrepreneurs. She’s shared the speaker stage with Richard Branson, Sheryl Sandberg, Daymond John, Marilu Henner, and Desmond Tutu among others, and professed her love of Eddie Vedder in her TEDx talk on 11/11/11. She hosted the top-rated entertaining business podcasts, Breaking Down Your Business, and then Why Are We Shouting?, a question she asks herself daily. CNNMoney called her a “mogul.” MSN Live said she’s a “Cool Entrepreneur We Love.” Forbes rated her a Top 100 Champion Small Business Influencer and voted her third business, The Founding Moms, one of the Top 10 Websites For Entrepreneurs. When she’s not speaking to audiences in patterned leggings or podcasting from her basement, she fruitlessly tries to convince her daughters that cassette tapes actually existed.

  • Be Completely Unapologetic with Singer Ms. Monét

    25 ABR. 2024 · “Just be who you are. Just be Mo.” That’s exactly what Ms. Monét did when she took the stage in 2020 at the World Expo in Dubai. When the audience rushed the stage she discovered how powerful her performances could be and now refers to them as a ministry. Ms. Monét shares with Jeanne the thought process behind her newest single; why seeing a woman in her 50s succeed in this industry is important for so many other women; why she kept returning to regular 9-5 jobs between singing gigs; why you just have to say “no” sometimes; and why it’s so important for her to continue to make her mother proud.   Born as Conesha Monét Owens, this Bay Area native was touched with the gift that only God could provide: the gift to truly move people. Given the talents of all that performing arts can give, including improv and dramatic acting, dance/choreography, topped with a 5-octave vocal range in modern and classical music, it's no wonder this "gifted" singer-songwriter, arranger, and thespian has been sought after by some of the industry's best, most diverse and accomplished artists and producers. Some include producers Walter Afanasieff, Patrick Leonard, Steve Jordan, and the great Phil Spector. Ms. Monét was one of the top 24 and first ever "Super Saves" on Season 24 of NBC's award-winning show "The Voice.” She recently released a single called “Celebrate” and is currently a radio personality for KUNV.  Instagram: @THEEMSMONET X/Twitter: @MSMONET YouTube: @MSMONET50 Facebook: /MONIACS

  • Take the Journey with Artistic Director of Deeply Rooted Dance Theater Nicole Clarke-Springer

    11 ABR. 2024 · Nicole Clarke-Springer isn’t losing sleep over the final product; as a dancer and choreographer, she’s more interested in the process. She says the communal nature of her work is what makes the performance authentic and affects the audience. Nicole shares with Jeanne why she threw out her plan to move to New York City for training; what the three points of collaboration are when she’s choreographing and why they matter; how embracing the process contributes to her success; why listening to your intuition is important; and why she doesn’t tell herself she will do better.

Her career blossomed at Deeply Rooted Dance Theater (DRDT), starting as an apprentice before becoming a company member.

She took a brief hiatus in 2007 to teach at Western Kentucky University and tour Istanbul with the Clifton Brown Dance Company. Returning to DRDT, she directed the Summer Dance Intensive, honed her choreographic skills with works like Nine and Femme, and contributed to Congo Square Theatre's Nativity. In 2013, she joined DRDT's Artistic Team and was spotlighted as an Emerging Choreographer for "Generations." Her piece Hadiya was acclaimed for its poignancy and tribute to victims of violence. Clarke-Springer's influence extended to choreographing for the Steve Harvey Show and teaching nationwide, including positions at Chicago State University and Northwestern University. Upholding Deeply Rooted's mission, she fosters an environment of spiritual affirmation, open dialogue, and accountability, leading to her appointment as Artistic Director in 2019.
