Do you realize the power of your own story?

Most of us see our story as a path riddled with liabilities, hurts, and disappointments. We find it hard to believe that the things we’ve experienced can be of help to others. And while your path may be fraught with those kinds of experiences it’s nevertheless true that what you’ve experienced equips you to be an asset to others who have not yet overcome those same things in their own lives. This episode of the podcast features Kimberly Dunlap, a woman with her own past and share of pain, but she’s leveraging those experiences to use her story for the benefit of others. If you need inner healing, a newfound confidence in yourself, or a sense of greater purpose then you need to hear Kimberly’s story!

On this episode you’ll hear Kimberly’s story and find out how the insights she’s learned on her own journey to self-confidence can help you learn to trust yourself again and move toward greater things.

How to know if you’re living out a charade that’s not authentic.

You’ve seen people on TV and internet videos who seem to have it all together, but there’s something wrong in the way they come across, something that doesn’t seem real or authentic.

How do you know if you’re living out that kind of charade? There’s one clear sign. You don’t have joy. Kimberly Dunlap shares how a lack of joy is the main tip-off to an inauthentic life, on this episode of Happy Black Woman with Rosetta Thurman.
