“A scarcity mindset is usually grounded in fear, and an abundant mindset is grounded in love.” – Teneshia Jackson Warner

We give a lot of importance to our jobs, not only because our jobs sustain our financial needs but they also give us a sense of purpose. But sometimes, we forget to take a pause, breath, and ask ourselves: “I am really happy with the job I have?”, “Am I passionate about what I do?”, and “Do I enjoy my work right now?”

In this week’s episode, we are joined by Teneshia Jackson Warner, an award-winning multicultural marketing expert, purpose-driven entrepreneur, and author. Teneshia owns the first Black woman-led company to win the Cannes Lion Grand Prix Award. She is also an Emmy Award winner. Her entrepreneurial journey started when she started the Egamy Group 14 years ago.

Teneshia will be sharing with us the five different dreamer types, the importance of knowing which kind of dreamer you are, and determining what is the right path for you to start navigating your dreams. She shares the most important lessons she learned over the past 14 years as an entrepreneur and the past 20 years chasing her dreams.
