**A BONUS EPISODE in memory of grandmas and all grandparents who have transitioned.** On August 12, 2021, my paternal grandmother, Lucille Walker passed away. I had the honor of reciting an original poem at her homegoing services and I invite you to remember those you've loved and lost.
Less than 4 minutes long, my prayer is that one or two of the words bring a smile to you in memory of!
Enjoy - And super great news. Keep an eye out for my book #2 this year, which will be 44 letters and poems to help shift you to your best you. I cannot wait!

I am the trustee of me and I claim my power" is what we declare at the onset of this episode! Whew!! What do you think of when you hear the word "power?" We're answering questions + dropping nuggets on the definition of power, what to do when your power is at its lowest, how to grab it back, and so much more! Power is that 5-lettered word that we can get lost in if we aren't careful! I welcome you to the kitchen-table (minute 1:02), gift a bit of coaching & soul work (minute 3:39) to challenge your thinking, enjoy a few cocktails (minute 12:56) to celebrate all of the greatness you are, then we have some good ole fashion conversations, just you & I (minute 17:08). In coaching, we dig deep, through a powerful imagery exercise. During cocktails, we give a cheers to you and your wins, and conversations offer us a bit of reflection, a few laughs, and a call to action for a personal podcast help request. **Don't forget to subscribe and review!** Links referenced during the episode: The CC&C Journal to use during each podcast episode: https://www.lolitawalker.com/downloads Coaching with Me: https://www.lolitawalker.com/coaching My 40-card Affirmation Deck: https://www.lolitawalker.com/shop Other links worth referencing: Donate to my small biz & help keep podcast going: https://www.lolitawalker.com/donate My Upcoming Women's Weekend Renewal Retreat: https://www.lolitawalker.com/retreats My TEDxtalk: https://bit.ly/LolitaTakesTedx My book, The Intersection of You & Change: https://www.lolitawalker.com/the-book ...
Kiran Bassi joins Lolita Walker in this episode to talk vulnerability in the workplace, shame, ethnic and corporate culture, owning your story and everything in between.

Think about this even in your personal life! Does the weight of shame overtake you? Do you retreat and begin to question yourself? Some of us will never know until it happens to us. Others of us have been here and wonder what we could have done differently. In this episode, Kiran is telling her story, the pain, shame, conflicts within her ethnic culture, the irony of the corporate culture, owning her truth and using it to help others share their stories.
