Chapter 64-Lené of The Goal Standard

Truly hope you enjoy and are inspired by this week’s episode with Lené.

In this chapter, Lené shares with us what it was like growing up on the small, 20-mile wide island of Bermuda, and how travel was a normal part of her life. She talks about participating in a study abroad program that is a touch stone to this day for how she’s able to deal with culture shock, and navigate difficult times. After studying abroad and still traveling a lot, while working in Amsterdam, Lené got the opportunity to co-found a group that gave her a sense of connection, healing, and sisterhood. She also met her then boyfriend and talks about some the sacrifices each person has had to make to build their relationship. Lené describes the technique she used to get multiple jobs abroad, her experience working in those spaces, and the meeting that was a turning point in her career. She says Black women need to normalize asking for help, and challenges the thought process that you don’t have the money to buy consultations, courses, or pay industry event fees that will help you to generate income in your business. She also gives us some tips on how to find the investments that are more likely to be a good fit for you. Lené also speaks to the value of community, and gives some tips on finding the people who can support you when you can’t support yourself.

This is a quote that inspires Lené:

Whether you think you can, or you think you can’t–you’re right.
