This is part 2 of the Millennial Dating Series.On this episode we hear from Akil, a chemist and teacher out of Minneapolis. Akil shares some really thoughtful perspectives on dating and relationships for black millennials. And considering I’ve known Akil for almost 8 years and have seen his tomfoolery over that almost decade, his perspective really has come from a lot of maturing, learning from others, and self reflection. I really think you’ll enjoy this interview.

Enjoy!

I’m excited to bring you an episode with CEO, screenwriter, public speaker, and bestselling and award-nominated author, Phoenix Williams. You may be familiar with her erotic romance series, Sex, Lies, and Friendship, or her paranormal series, Queens of Beasts. Phoenix credits her success to standing in her truth, obsessing over anime, owning who she is, and giving her fears the bird. In her own words, she writes books and talks shit -- which you know I love and had to have her on the show.

On this episode Phoenix shares a story from her early twenties when she was dating someone seriously and found out in the worst way possible that he had moved on.

Phoenix drops allll the gems on this episode and share her unabashed truth that got her to the place of growth and maturity that she’s in now.
