Recently I have become addicted to Podcasts and one of my VERY favorites of them all is #MyTaughtYou by Myleik Teele the creator of CurlBox . I absolutely love her podcast, she is late 30’s and worked hard to create her brand, she is honest brutally honest and gives great advice and if she doesn’t know she doesn’t pretend that she does. Picture big sister or auntie that will get you ALL the way together when you need it but also celebrate your wins and root you on along the way. DOPE. If you know me than you know that I am not easily impressed by people but I love Myleiks style, hustle and honesty.
Long story short, I listen to her podcast on my way to or from work or headed to pick up the girls etc…If you don’t listen you should. Imagine my surprise Im scrolling through social media and see she posts a IG story about an event that she will be speaking at here in Atlanta (she lives her too). Listen…I hit that link so quick and the event was on a Monday and was only $5!! Yes $5. I snatched up two tickets and proceeded to figure out how the hell I was about to make this work. See the way my husbands schedule is set up and the time my girls need to be picked up from daycare.
Needless to say my village in the truth and we made it happen and I am so extremely happy that we did.
Ya’ll to say that the last few months have been a challenge, lots of changes and transitions and I needed to get out and rub elbows with some other folks. The event was super intimate and we were able to ask questions and chat with her directly as well as the owner of Blavity Morgan DeBaun. The entire experience was inspiring and refreshing to say the least.
I was haphazardly able to meet Myleik, chat with her one on one briefly and even snag a picture. YEAR MADE! She is actually also doing a LIVE version of her podcast here in Atlanta in August and myself and 3 of my girlfriends will be attending together! So excited.
Who do you follow on social media that you would love to meet?
