Achieving Success as a Single Mom + Gaining Clarity on Future Goals | Studio 78 Podcast

In this special episode I conduct a special mentoring session with LaKaye Mbah. She is a photographer, teacher, mom and artist. We discuss the stigma and challenges of single motherhood that is often times self-imposed. Later in the episode we dig into what she specifically wants her future career to look like and what she needs to begin to do to transition her business to the next stage.
