WELCOME TO BEYOND HER GRIND
Beyond Her Grind is a weekly podcast that gets at the root of what motivates women of color to want more in their careers. We have real and honest conversations about how we let our life, relationships and societal pressures get in the way of our full potential. Each episode offers advice to help you refocus on your goals, self-care your way out of career burn-out, make the money you’re worth, and find the courage to move beyond the grind.
Meet Your Host
ESTHER YVETTE LEONARD
For me the grind is real. I am a career counselor at a university during the day, a career coaching entrepreneur and podcaster by night, and an MBA student on the weekends.
Did I mention that I volunteer too?
Let me catch a breath.
I know how easy it is to get caught up in the daily grind, the climb of the career ladder, and the overall societal pressures of being a woman of color.
I created this podcast to talk about all of that.
There is so much more to a career than the job or the path to success. Life, relationships, society and experience impact how women navigate their careers and can sometimes throw us off track!
That’s why I love helping women of color get back to the root of their career motivations. I enjoy helping them rediscover their inner power so that they find the courage to make career decisions that reflect who they are and I am also inspired by their journeys.
When I'm Not On My Grind
I’m either listening to an audio book, reading, painting or decorating my apartment. Pinterest is EVERYTHING! New hobby, buying and selling stocks on Robinhood!
