19. Failing forward: bouncing back in business & life with Claud Williams

Around 3 or 4 years ago, whilst walking with Claud on one of our many in depth talks, we spoke about Trusting The Process. We envisioned, dreamed and spoke it into being. Unknowingly at the time, Claud played a significantly huge impact in helping me birth the idea you see today. fast forward a few years, and I couldn't think of any better man to honour International Men's Day 2019 with than Mr Claud Williams. Entrepreneur, Speaker and Brand Consultant, Claud is probable best known for his role as Founder and Managing Director at Dream Nation, the personal development brand fit for the 21st century. After a TED Talk experience that went less than favourably, Claud sought to create a space where he could "rewrite" what was. The beginning of "Practical Dreaming". Unknowingly, what was supposed to be a one-off event, led to the birth of the successful business we see today, Dream Nation.Listen as we talk about failing forward. How the lowest of lows can catapult you forward into your destiny, why the highs are fleeting, and how all of these different experiences have made Claud the man he is today.

13. Pursuing your passions with Hannah Ajala

Every so often I meet someone who embodies excellence in all that they do. Hannah Ajala is one of those people. Since having the pleasure of hosting her launch party for We Are Black Journos, I have been honoured to have front row seats to the growth and journey Hannah is on. With 5 years under her belt at the prestigious BBC, at the age of 25 Hannah recently joined the BBC Africa team where her passion and creativity are making waves in sharing our stories. When she's not slaying news reports and creating viral documentaries - Hannah is a self professed "Jack of all trades, master of all". Founding movements and organisations such as mentorship programme "Pursue Your Passion", black travel community, "Black British Travel Meet Up" and women's Christian fellowship, "Ladies Who Fellowship", it's fair to say that she has her hand in many pots. In this episode (part 1 of my conversation with Hannah) we explore just how she balances so many passions and why it is important that we do the things that make us come alive. We talk about the face of journalism and ask what moves are being made in diversity and inclusion, and we also unpack what it takes to do a TED Talk, and find that rejection is often God's form of redirection.Be sure to join the conversation by sharing your thoughts across all platforms @debrachosen and on Instagram @trustingtheprocesspod.

15. Medicine, art and managing your mental health with Sutra

With Mental Health in the black community being so close to my heart, it was important for me to have this conversation with the phenomenal being that is Sutra. Sutra is the founder of the platform that is making vulnerability cool again, Poll Therapy (instagram.com/polltherapy). Doctor by profession, artist by nature (including music and literary work) Sutra boldly revels in being many things - and does it with grace. In episode 15, we sat down during Mental Health Awareness week to have an honest conversation around experiencing a loss of joy. How a close dance with death changed everything and the role of art and faith in her own healing process. We talk about discovering her creative voice in medical school. And delving deeper into topics within Sutra’s debut book “Marrow”, we unpack identity and what home looks like for Ghana-raised Sutra.
