Listen to the Professional Troublemaker Playlist (& More)!
Happy Monday to all my people! Every day we get closer to March 2, I get more and more excited. I cannot believe we are almost to the publication date. This book is the best work I’ve done yet, and I can say confidently that it is even better than book 1 (I’m Judging You: The Do-Better Manual).
Today, I am sharing with you all the #ProfessionalTroublemaker Playlist! The playlist was compromised of 15+ songs that cousins in LuvvNation, my friends, and I all use to help us to stand and courage and fight our fears. This playlist is the “You Got This” playlist and I hope you all are able to turn it on and gain the confidence to do the things that feel scary to you.
If you are loving the #ProfessionalTroublemaker Playlist, you will not want to miss out on my Virtual Book Tour! Because it’s a pandemic, I can’t celebrate in person with the traditional book tour I would normally have. So we’re doing the next best thing, by bringing you an amazing VIRTUAL book tour, with some of my fellow authors and favorite people. During the month of March, I will be in conversation with Glennon Doyle, KevOnStage, Esther Perel, Brittany Packnett Cunningham, Gabrielle Union, Myleik Teele, Kahlana Barfield Brown.
For every tour stop, we have partnered up with an Independent bookstore! We are going to have a good time so come through and join us during one of our virtual stops. In addition to your ticket purchase, you will receive a signed copy of Professional Troublemaker: The Fear-Fighter Manual from the participating books store.
And if you aren’t able to make a tour stop, you can still purchase Professional Troublemaker: The Fear-Fighter Manual through select independent bookstores (click here!) to receive a JudgeyPop with your order!
Before you get your hands on the book do you need more fear-fighter recommendations? We’ve compiled a list of our top fear-fighting books, movies, podcasts, and Professional Troublemaker (formally known as Rants & Randomness) episodes!
These books are all books that have contributed to my work to commit to being a Professional Troublemaker! On this list, I have added some of my favorite fear-fighting books of all time like The Alchemist by Paulo Coelho, Sula by Toni Morrison, or And I Still Rise by Maya Angelou. If you are looking for some new books, I have added some of my new favorites, as well, like Untamed by Glennon Doyle, The Dragons The Giants The Women by Wayetu Moore, and Think Again by Adam Grant.
These movies are here to motivate you, make you laugh, and overall give you joy or insight. I have some of my favorites, like Sister Act 2 and other movies about Fear-Fighters like Hidden Figures.
These are the podcast that I have been loving and/or have been staples in my podcast rotation. If you need something for the mind you can start listening to Therapy for Black Girls with Dr. Joy Harden Bradford or get into something a little more professional like Work Life with Adam Grant.
And finally, we compiled a list of the top 10 fear-fighting episodes of the Professional Troublemaker podcast. I have been so fortunate to interview so many amazing guests, but these are just a few of my favorite. Check out my episode with Gabourey Sidibe to help learn to fight your fears and own your dopeness or check out my episode with Rich Dennis to learn more about building a business.
I’m so excited about celebrating this book and my mission to help 1 million people conquer their fears.
Just ONE more week until this book is in your hands!
