6: Money & Staying Fit ft. Tai Wiggins of the Financial Gym

Money & Staying Financially Fit ft. Tai Wiggins of the Financial Gym We are on a roll! Or is it bagel? Anyway, our good friend Tai stopped by our home, Brooklyn Podcasting Studio, https://www.brooklynpodcastingstudio.com/, flex and get us financially fit.  She loved on us. She made us laugh. And she kept it all the way real. Like a real financial bestie should.  "Tai is a Certified Financial Trainer with the Financial Gym. She combines passion, empathy and humor to help her clients achieve their wildest financial dreams. After an 8 year career in higher education, she was ready to empower others through financial literacy. She is personally on the road to financial freedom with the goal of building generational wealth and encouraging as many people as she can in the process.

Lastly, we wanted to add the cash saving apps Tai & BP recommended on the podcast: Stash - Tai uses Stash because she knows the importance of investing and learning about investing early on. With Stash set your investment goals and tolerance from the gate, all while learning what it takes to meet your goals. https://get.stashinvest.com/taig8oay Qapital - Christina is using Qapital to meet her money goals, and I think you should too.

7: High Hopes For A Living - The Queens of Higher Dining

Episode 7:  Higher Hopes For A Living - The Queens of Higher Dining We talk to the ladies of HD to get a deeper understanding of the Higher Dining experience, what it means for the new and old generation of bud enthusiast; how they're changing the game of finer dining, gritty NYC aesthetic, and cannabis as a lifestyle, as well as healing mechanism. If you'd love to book them for your next event or purchase their tantalizing, aromatic house wears visit:  https://www.instagram.com/higherdining/  or  https://www.higherdining.com/ CAN'T WAIT 2 TRY FOOD & OTHER WOC KILLING THE GRUB & BEV GAME: PULL UP @ THE 5,4,3,2,1 PARTY! GET TIX HERE for 5-4-19: https://bit.ly/2GETUAF ~~~~~~~~~~~~~ Shanelly Pena has long refined her love for food alongside her sister, posturing herself for a palatable future of her own.  Today the co-founding chef and chief commercial officer of NYC's Higher Dining brings her artful cuisine socials from the city of neon and chrome to upscale banquets worldwide. As a labor movement union representative, Shanelly Pena polished her business acumen at Howard University and rubbed elbows with members of Congress -- prior to establishing herself at the International Culinary Center.  This well-balanced career path enabled her seamless navigation from front to back of the house among the upper echelon in the District of Columbia and Manhattan of the restaurant industry.  With sought-after seasonal menus and hospitable event curation, Shanelly Pena fashioned the ownership of the Higher Dining experience by reflecting on her rich heritage and family tradition.  A journey inspired by her fiancé, global restaurant travels, and the birth of their son. Alongside her sister and business partner, Roshelly -- Shanelly Pena's vision launched by breaking bread within her community as a means to cultivate a gourmet legacy.   Roshelly serves as the co-founder and chief marketing officer of Higher Dining bringing her larger-than-life personality to the forefront of their lush dining events.  Inspired by the entrepreneurial spirit of her parents, Roshelly delved into the world of customer service and hospitality absorbing savviness from an array of opportunities. Whether serving at a high-end Manhattan restaurant, studying in kitchens internationally, or honing her craft as a pastry chef under an esteemed advisor -- the multi-hyphenate is dedicated to designing toothsome tarts. Still, with the tenacity to uphold the hustle of her family legacy, she went into business with her older sister, Shanelly Pena.    Beyond the inventiveness to create a fresh culinary lane, Roshelly's opulent recipes jolt the senses. An experience Higher Dining is well-known for. With her hands at the helm of the company's elevated food socials, she prides herself on the ability to transform traditional Latino dishes and extravagant desserts. Whether for the A-list client or start-up turn up, Higher Dining's catering selections are prepared with love and create mouth-watering memories. Their passionate pursuit of food and healing proves to be more than appetizing, but a prolific venture, too.  Higher Dining's one-of-one menus do not only fill belly's but hearts, with it's ongoing commitment to giving back. As a company owned and run by women of color, it not only markets for profit, but for the gathering of community. Roshelly explains it simply, "Higher Dining represents food, love, sisterhood, belonging and culture".--- This episode is sponsored by · Anchor: The easiest way to make a podcast. https://anchor.fm/app--- Send in a voice message: https://anchor.fm/bagelsandplantains/messageSupport this podcast: https://anchor.fm/bagelsandplantains/support

13: BRCA What? BRCA Who? What No One Tells You About Cancer & Genetic Counseling w/ BRCA Advocate Erika Stallings

Erika Stallings is an attorney, writer and BRCA awareness advocate. In June 2014, she discovered she carried the BRCA2 gene mutation, a hereditary cancer mutation that causes up to an 85% lifetime risk of developing breast cancer (and other cancers too). Just six months later she underwent a preventative double mastectomy -- at an age where most are just starting to come into their own. Erika’s eye-opening experience and research led her to become an advocate for other young women facing the same fate, particularly black women who are underserved by genetic counseling and testing. She has spoken about her experience with BRCA and the many biases at the healthcare level. Her message and mission have appeared in major publications such as Jezebel, Huffington Post, New York Magazine’s The Cut and O Magazine. She also serves as the founding co-chair of the Young Leadership Council for the Basser Center for BRCA. You can find her on twitter @quidditch424 or all the fabulous publishings below.
