What's New in the Month of Lurv

Updated: Feb 4

Dear Africana Woman,

Happy new month of February. Gurl we made it through FIVE weeks of January. Give yourself a pat on the back because sho! Jan is long hey.

So I really want to come and tell you about what is happening in Africana Woman. Maybe even throw in my dating update 🥰 Just playing but you never know keep reading.

I have A LOT to tell you. So let me give you a Content Table so as you skip to the parts you like:

  1. Visionaries Are Reaching for the Stars

  2. Personal Brand Course

  3. Retreats


  5. Season 5 of the Africana Woman Podcast

Let's get started.

Africana Woman Visionaries

Sis you are out here saying you are working on Personal Development but you haven't yet tapped into the Visionaries. HOW now? When I tell you the level of proudness I have for these women, it cannot be contained.

What is the Visionaries?

Our membership group of women who are actively pursuing wealth, integrating health in their lifestyle and getting back to their roots of self love. OMG

  • We have had several women start exercising regularly be it with a coach or self led. Winfridah is so proud to start her fitness journey

  • The Visionaries are stepping up their money game as we are follow Jane Mazimba's weekly money suggestions in her book Catching FIRE. Every week we hold each other accountable about our finances, give each other money tips and normalise talking about money.

  • We have a monthly masterclass with international coaches and experts. Plus they have access to the full library of past masterclasses. Beenzu said she is using last year's January masterclass to plan for this year.

  • We have weekly accountability calls to check on member's progress with their goals for the year.

This is just the tip of the iceberg with what happens in the Visionaries. I don't like to be a FOMO monger. But I really do believe that if this is your year for exponential growth, both personally and professionally, you are missing out by not being part of the Visionaries.

That is why our Valentine gift to you is a discount of the monthly membership from $50 to $25 (approx. K550). The time is now.

Africana Woman course

The Personal Brand Course is Back!

This course is so special to me because as someone who is somewhat allergic to surface conversations, I get to come along side you on your journey of personal discovery. It's intense, keeps you on your toes, and jam packed with knowledge. However, at the end you will always come back to yourself, your inner knowing, your inner wisdom.

Nolene from Cohort 1 said, "The course is far more than the term personal branding denotes on first reading, it is in fact a journey to oneself and a means of writing the story of one’s life from past to present to future. Intensive and highly thought provoking about the life one is living as opposed to just projecting. Loved it."

I guarantee, you will come out of the Personal Brand Course saying, "I never esperdit to be this deep." And I am committed to walking with you every step of the way.

Africana Woman lunch and learn

I am happy to report the #LunchandLearn Series has started off with an huge success. Our first city of 6 was Ndola.

We Lunched at Nsobe Game Camp, ideally set on the outskirts of the city, surrounded by thick greenery, rolling lawns that drop into peaceful lakes. When I tell you, that we Learned for 6 hours straight, I was shook to hear that the time was 4:30pm when I asked.

We sat on the lawn and talked, laughed, asked questions, ate good food. And essentially walked in as strangers and left as friends. What a beautiful experience. Look, I have organized my fair share of events, but this stood out from the rest by far. I am trying not to sound woo but it was like there was magic in the air.

As you know, we are taking Lunch and Learn to 6 cities, including:

  • Kabwe - 24 Feb

  • Lusaka - 29 Mar

  • Livingstone - 27 Apr

  • Solwezi - 18 May

  • Mongu - 01 June

Please don't say I never told you. Or that everything is always in Lusaka. We are coming right to your doorstep. What I did learn from Ndola is that this experience is best with few women. Therefore, we are only accepting 8 women per city. First come first served. You can get your ticket for any of the cities today
