Tired of the achievement hustle?

This podcast is for Black women who want to ditch the "hustle culture" mentality and embrace radical self-care. Denise and Kala, friends and co-founders of Well Rise, have real conversations about what better wellness means: less doing, more being, and more prioritizing your own damn needs.

This podcast is for you if:

  • You're tired of the hustle and grind mentality.
  • You want to prioritize your own wellness.
  • You're looking for practical tools and inspiration for self-care.
  • You want to connect with other Black women on a similar journey.

In this episode:

  1. Why this podcast is different: it's not about doing more, it's about doing less and doing it better.
  2. The dangers of achievement culture and how it impacts Black women.
  3. Practical tips for prioritizing self-care, even with a busy schedule.
  4. A featured "Put that Ish on!" product: a stretch mark cream for embracing your scars and loving the skin you're in.
