Untold Story #140: Meet Monique DeBose

World's Greatest Women

Today’s woman was born to a black father and a white mother. Both her parents were well educated and they in turn had high expectations for her. She went to college and earned a degree in applied mathematics. But as her career took shape, she felt she didn’t quite fit in anywhere. So after a year, she left the career her college degree had prepared her for and decided to pursue the arts. Jazz singing was where things felt right and she knew her voice and intelligence would lead the way. She joined a band and wrote her own songs. She won awards and became known in the music world for helping women choose more for themselves through music. Today, she performs, coaches and shows women leaders of all colors and ages how to choose more for themselves. It is my pleasure to introduce you to Monique DeBose.

Episode 40: Looking back on "Done With Hiding!" with Monique DeBose

Women on a Mission with Sue Revell

Stepping out of the shadows can be a scary thing to do, particularly when you’ve spent a lifetime playing things safe. Whether it’s playing small to protect ourselves, or dimming our light to make other people feel more comfortable around us, there are many ways in which we learn to contain what we think, what we say and what we do. And when the moment comes to step into our mission it can feel completely overwhelming to step out of the shadows and into the spotlight, even though we know it’s what we were born to do. In this week’s episode we look back at my conversation with Monique DeBose, award-winning jazz singer, songwriter, playwright, diversity consultant and spiritual coach. As we listened to the many contexts in which women hold themselves back, we also witnessed what it is to experience that change in power and energy when we own who we truly are, and become unapologetic for sharing that with the world. This Insights episode is all about the dance with resistance that we experience whenever we are ready to take the next step up in our life and leadership. Understanding our own experience of this deeply personal part of us that exists to keep us safe, so that we can work with it to help us soar. If you’re ready to step into your own spotlight, take a listen. ABOUT YOUR HOST: SUE REVELL Sue is on a mission to STOP women playing small so that they can create the legacy they want to leave in the world.  With over 30 years coaching and leadership experience, Sue loves nothing more than disrupting the unhelpful thinking that often holds women back, so that they can think, dream and BE bigger in leading the change they want to see.  Coaching internationally, Sue’s clients are primarily world-changing women who want to lead with confidence, increase their impact and live a life that matters.

Episode 39: Done With Hiding! with Monique DeBose

Women on a Mission with Sue Revell

How do you come out of hiding when you’ve spent a lifetime playing small so that other people don’t feel uncomfortable in your presence? How do you learn to own and love every part of who you are, even those parts that are hidden in shadow, buried deep inside? And how do you create the level of self-acceptance needed to feel both safe and free within yourself, as well as with others? Monique DeBose is a transformational entertainer, an award-winning jazz singer and playwright, a diversity consultant and a leadership coach with a Masters degree in Spiritual Psychology. For the past 20 years, she's been on a mission to help women integrate all the parts of themselves. To turn their fears and insecurities into their strength. To express themselves fully. To choose MORE for their lives. For Monique the answers lie in allowing herself to experience the constant dance between those human feelings of resistance and fear & her spiritual journey to self-acceptance and safety deep within. We hear how, in her own inner work and in her work with clients, she uses her music, art and creativity to bypass the ‘tricky mind’ and get to the deep innate wisdom stored in our bodies throughout our many life experiences. Most of all, we learn how and why Monique stopped protecting others, at her own expense, and stepped fully into her own glorious power, lighting the way for others to follow and integrate all the parts of themselves too.

Episode 15: From Good Girl to Sovereign Woman, with Monique Debose

Enough, the podcast

Monique DeBose is a transformational entertainer. What’s that, you ask? Well, she writes music, plays, and creates courses for women that change lives. I daresay she’ll have that effect on you in this podcast episode too. We meander into all kinds of provocative places as we unpack how Monique’s good girl conditioning has infiltrated her life, right down to what she thinks about going into a store, to how she mothers her sons. She shares generously about her own experience, as a woman of color, of how she’s moving out of good girl, and into sovereign woman. How? Monique is a big believer in finding a safe, supportive community during your transformative process. She also gives us a powerful exercise to start clearing our “want” and “desire” pipes. The flow in those “want” pipes is often clogged in women with good girl conditioning. Oh, and I’ve woven in some music from Monique’s new album, You Are The Sovereign One, to make this podcast even more transformational and experiential. Ready to step into sovereign woman?

Lambring had a publishing deal in Nashville, so you know she has strengthened that songwriting muscle. But after a few years of writing catchy songs for other people, she decided to do her own thing. I’m glad she did. Autonomy has some of the year’s best songwriting, but Lambring’s performances really give them life. This album is an astonishing venting of feminine rage -- not because Lambring is an angry woman, but because this album is all about examining the at times deadly pressures cis women face. Autonomy is an album about the expectations of patriarchy and learning how to flaunt them -- and still survive.
