I was recently interviewed by Antonette Oloo for her podcast channel “She Owns Success” in which I spoke about my PR business journey and the lessons that I have learnt along the way. The interview was a great opportunity for me to take stock and also to share some of the very real challenges and breakthroughs I have had a long the way. PR is a fascinating industry to be part of and quite often it is misunderstood, so this was a great chance to set the record straight and also enlighten listeners.
Here were some of my nuggets:
There are certain places where unless you can grow a really thick skin and build a support network, it can be tough!
The world will tell you that you are not good enough, especially as a woman in business. We see that with the gender pay gap and the ethnic pay gap as well.
Know that who you are is important and know that you can have a fantastic business and career being who you are authentically
Find beauty, even when it can be dark and even when you are going to be tired.
This was such a fun interview to take part in and I hope I left listeners with some insightful messages. Listen to the episode here:
Tune into The Ladybrille Podcast to listen to my podcast interview with Uduak Oduok, Founder of Ladybrille Magazine: http://ladybrillemag.com/ronkelawal/
The ‘Ladybrille Woman of the Month’ is a podcast feature on Ladybrillemag.com that celebrates women who empower themselves and others through their contributions and actions in their local and international communities. These women are intelligent, courageous, confident, and innovative. They strive for balance in their personal lives (whether emotionally, mentally, and spiritually), are persistent, and when they fall, they get right back up. These women honor and stand in their truths. They are business and community leaders, visionaries, trailblazers and game changers. They are our sisters, aunties, mothers, friends and so much more.
In this podcast episode I joined Naomi and Ogaga to reminisce on Fresh Price of Bel-Air and explore how much colourism played a factor in the show.
In the second segment we discuss the decision by British MPs to deregulate sex education in school as they recount their experiences. Finally, in an effort to ignore’s Trump’s inauguration as President of the USA, the 20Something Podcast team talk what Obama’s reign meant to them as Black Britons.
