#BlogHer is committed to uplifting and amplifying the diverse voices of entrepreneurs and businesswomen who provide meaningful contributions to our community and beyond. Whether you are a mighty team of one or hundreds, a participant from #ThePitch, a veteran in the business space, or just here to learn — we exist to highlight your efforts and make sure your company has a platform to be seen. This week, we called upon the Black female members of our #BlogHer Creators Facebook group to offer a look into their work.
These women own online shops, work tirelessly to have their books and podcasts distributed, assist women on their wellness journeys, help brands market creatively, and provide products and services that make our jobs as content creators easier. They deserve your support. Purchase their products. Take advantage of their services. Comment and share their latest social media posts. There are so many ways to show you care. We hope you will aid us in our fight for equality, and make sure these ladies and their work don’t go unnoticed.

Major transformation and up-leveling is possible in times of chaos and confusion… we just need to be connected and tuned in on the inside to know where to be, what to do and how to take the next step. This is being in the eye of the storm, where you are calm, at peace and have clarity no matter what swirls around you. No matter what is happening in your life and the lives of those around you, we all still can all be at peace in the chaos. We can all still have transformation and breakthrough in times of challenge – in fact this is a time when we can use those challenges as footstools – rather than a roadblock to go to the next level in our own personal journey and for the greater good of us ALL. Do not let the challenging times fool you… you still have everything you need inside of you… you just have to be in touch and in relationship with your TRUE SELF… everything comes from there. So many have been asking for resources… @wellnessofficial had daily free IG Live sessions w/ amazing practitioners from around the world… they are generously sharing their tools for deeper connection to the self (and there infinite paths) and many are now on the site. @wellnessofficial just had a *soft* launch featuring practitioner remote sessions, digital events and a trove of live and archived videos on demand (more added this week) I’m leading my first digital #chakra 101 class THIS Sunday. It’s over 3 hrs long and I made sure to make it super affordable go to the digital events tab at WellnessOfficial.co Dm me anytime. *just know I spend a lot of time OFF my phone so I don’t always reply quickly. Full 🌕 tonight, talk to her and build a relationship with the nature of her powers. Maybe tonight you write down something you’d like to release and set it (safely) on fire to release it with La Luna’s help! 📸 @adele.makulova
