The Millennial Rundown
August 29, 2019
If you didn't catch Episode 5 of Millennial Talk:
Did you know that Gorilla's sing happy songs while eating and they don't sing the same song every time. They even sing louder. The beginning of this episode began with Justin comparing this action to his own joyfulness when he eats. Who doesn't want to sing when they see food? I think even a little dance is necessary.
Justin introduces his Co-Host Monica Bey; the self proclaimed "Healer in Heels." Their first topic of discussion was Jay-Z's recent partnership with the NFL, which has received a lot of backlash. Justin enlightens viewers on how the "power couple" Jay-Z and Beyonce have been actively boycotting the NFL, since Jay turned down the halftime show last year. In the new deal Jay-Z signed with the NFL, he will assist them in many entertainment deals, improvements in the halftime show, and be a face for social activism. According, to Justin many celebrities took to social media calling Jay-Z a "sell-out" and "anti-black" in juxtaposition to how he portrays himself in his music. Justin believes it's a good move for Jay. "Now he has a seat at the table," he says in reference to how Jay-Z has placed himself in a position of power and possible change within the NFL. Monica agrees, but just hopes that Jay's motivation is primarily one of activism and not entertainment. Justin sees it from both point of views. He hopes that Jay-Z has or will make strides to include former American football quarterback Colin Kaepernick. Since, Kaepernick was the first to kneel in protest against racism and police brutality during the National Anthem. The hosts have faith that Jay-Z represents black america and wouldn't do anything to jeopardize his own community. Jay has stated,"It's time for us to move pass kneeling, its time for action."You have to do more than protest to make a change and Jay-Z seems to be taking a step in the right direction.Monica proclaims how we can't just look at things from the outside, and I couldn't agree more. All we can do is root for Jay to keep up with his track record, and make us proud.
Justin then turns his attention onto Monica Bey and fully introduces this episodes Co-hostess. Monica holds a Bachelors Degree in Social Science. She is a certified Life Coach, Reiki Master, and Hypnotist. After leaving corporate America she went back to her roots. Revisiting the power of her natural spiritual gifts and abilities to help others redirect the mission of the lives to one of authenticity and empowerment. She is the "Healer in Heels."
When she's not personally healing the lives of people, she furthers her teachings of her healing methods through her popular podcast "Life Mastery with Monica Bey."She also is a member of the Atlanta Black Chamber, while also promoting the benefits of her gifts on networks such as Fox. Monica explains how she is a born energy healer and has been able to heal herself and others since she was a child. She also has been blessed with other gifts such as being psychic and a medium.a She has learned various methods of holistic healing from across the globe from Native American, Ancient Egypt, Japan, China, and African. Thus, she uses her own mix of these methods to heal people emotionally, physically, mentally, and spiritually. Justin ask her about her typical day and her favorite form of healing. Monica explains how she can use her natural abilities to do various diagnostics on a individual and set them on a path of success based off their goals. Justin and Monica talk about pursuing your passion and doing what you love over what makes you money. She enlightens Justin on how she turns off her abilities in social settings, reading auras, and crystal healing.
Apparently, the movie 'Get Out' is not a accurate representation of hypnotism. Who knew? In fact, stage hypnotism and most movies make it seem like it's more of a joke. Monica says it's a more natural and positive experience than portrayed in the media. Surprisingly, Monica loves to Salsa dance and socialize when she's not healing people.
Lastly, Ciarra interviews Stephon B. Martin. Stephon is founder and CEO of a company called "Rhetoric Advising." A business development consulting firm dedicated to building small businesses and non-profits. His company helps build your brand from the ground up and gets you started. They focus on nourishing creativity and building their success. Ciarra thanks him for helping Millennials' amplify and harvest their potential. He started in high school helping people with essays and making a small-time hustle selling candy and brownies to his peers. In college, he became a Public Speaking Consultant, and helped people showcase their natural abilities. Eventually, he made it to Philadelphia where he was broke and working as a tutor. Now, he works with people and creates a holistic approach to their businesses. He fell into his career, but he fell in love with it. Stephon states how sometimes when your in a middle of a journey it's hard to appreciate it. Though, you wouldn't be the same person at the end of it. Everybody has to start from the bottom, and Stephon reminds Millennials and business owners to be the YOU in the industry that your in. It doesn't happen over night, but the journey is worth the wait.
