There’s something to be said when you are called the QUEEN of Soul. Not necessarily the King, which is an honor as well. But THE QUEEN! You know the Queen on a chess board is the most powerful piece on the board.
Ms. Aretha Franklin has provided us with her God-descended voice but granted she became the Queen of Soul, by HOW and WHAT she sang. In this episode, I discuss my love for Black music, and the greats like Ms. Aretha, the Queen of Soul, and Michael Jackson, the King of Pop and many more. I talk about how much they influenced me and what their legacy means to the world of branding.
Biggest Takeaways from This Episode
- Ask yourself, “What are you building?” Yes, money helps to get your dream off the ground, but after you get it, then what? What is the story people are going to tell you?
- The reason why Black music is so popular is the story and emotion placed into telling the story by song. We are the embodiment of emotional, soulful storytelling. Use your God-given gift to your advantage.
- Stand for something in your brand! Again, STAND for SOMETHING. Make it clear this is who you are and what you value in life –and the people who believe in you will follow.
Long Live the Queen of Soul 💜💜💜

A Flava Note
Thank you so much for listening and reading I truly appreciate it. I started this podcast because I’ve had so much to say and share about branding, especially as it concerns cultural branding for Women of Color. Also, I want to feature women of color whose brands are just starting in the entrepreneurial game but are rockin’ it out with their brands.
If you enjoyed this episode and my podcast in general, I would dance at your wedding if you can hit me up with an honest review and rating on Anchor, iTunes, Spotify, –whichever one you use to listen. It will help more women of color discover the show but also helps me know that I’m helping you as well.
If you’re a woman of color or a person who adores our Flava and you’re interested in being a guest on my podcast, hit me up at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Thank you again!
