Nikita is the CEO and head creative of JourneyGirl Magic Productions which is a podcast production company that supports and empowers women of color as a unique voice through the masses of podcasting. Nikita is also the host of two podcasts, JourneyGurl Magic Podcast, and Journey. Nikita is a journeyer in every sense of the word and truly believes that life is a journey and that you must be open to endless possibilities. Her coaching and personal beliefs are centered around living your imperfect journey to the fullest. How do you do that? By showing up, being vulnerable, practicing gratitude, being a badass, and enjoying the ride.
When Nikita is not coaching and producing, you can find her on Netflix binge-watching with her wife Jessica and enjoying family time with her toddler son Adonis and newborn Remy.
In today’s episode we will be talking about a variety of topics:
In this show we're talking about:
- What Nikita is currently into, Netflix-wise.
- What does it mean to be on a journey? For starters, being open in the truest sense. Nikita tries to do everything that the day brings, and she chooses to completely accept it instead of fighting it.
- What an imperfect journey looks like and her experiences during 2020.
- Her identities: Being a journeyer, women of color, gay, postpartum depression (not survivor), educator, and a mentor.
- The importance of being true to oneself, even if that means being angry and bitter towards everything that is going on in our messed-up world.
- A little bit more on the relationship between Sage, Erika, and Nikita.
