Our monthly Black and Good Mindset Series is a space for entrepreneurs who wish to connect and grow through authentic conversation. This series provides opportunities to hear from exceptional guest entrepreneurs about their experiences and approach methods.
In these panel discussions, hosted by Bianca Bruce, founder of Brand Her Well - we explore themes based on the entrepreneurial mindset, shared challenges, and what a business journey can look like from the inside. Our mindset gently shapes our experience and how we move forward - as do the people, places, and experiences we are surrounded by. The Mindset Series serves as a space to inspire, to re-adjust your mindset, and help you carve a new path forward that supports your growth. Previous sessions included Burnout and Developing Balance, and Growing through Challenges.
All of these events are catered to helping the community hear stories of growth, challenge and inspiration that can be reflected in their own experience and help them forge new pathways forward based on new insights gained. We grow through community, and sharing can help us see new opportunities or perspectives that transform how we navigate life.
In the most recent series, the theme in conversation was Transforming Your Money Mindset with guests Suzy Ashworth, Joanne Munis and Winifred Soribe.

Our relationship with money can be ingrained with many beliefs, emotions and assumptions. All of which have the power to either uplift or deplete us. For this panel discussion, we will hear from three experts on developing healthy financial wellbeing and the mindset that encourages healthy growth.
During this session, we understood the importance of how our money mindset forms and influences our behaviours, actions, choices and emotions. We are advised to be curious and understand what money beliefs play out for us. We then need to begin building a new mindset and approach that financially empowers us by:
Transforming your money mindset is a process, little habits daily that accumulate new and robust foundations. Please focus on the people you surround yourself with; the daily conversations, the stories we hear of what is possible, and the relationships we develop are deeply ingrained in the beliefs we build and how we shape our lives moving forward.
Suzy Ashworth, a participant at this event, shared, "Sustained growth, creating a way to grow and receive more sustainably, means you work on creating different thoughts. So you're projecting more positively into the future. But also, you're releasing the stuff you hold in your body and your emotional field. And to let go of the stuff in the past."
