Ep046:The importance of celebrating yourself

Ep046:The importance of celebrating yourself

September 26, 2019

How often do you take time to celebrate how far you've come and this fabulous life journey? I took some time to just that over the past few weeks and had a whole new perspective on how much I've achieved. In this fast-paced world, we're taught that “accomplishment” means getting as much done in a day as you possibly can. However, too many of us don’t take the time to reflect on our accomplishments. I would like to share with you 3 reasons why it's important to celebrate yourself every day.

Marketing Guru, Magazine Publisher, Event Producer, she is a Bold Entrepreneur that some might even call a Fashionista, but Virgin Island native - Janette N. Brin, describes herself as a POSHgirl - a driven career woman with a fun, stylish, creative spirit.

As the Founder and Owner of Caribbean POSH, Janette has managed to weave a distinct and inspiring path in the world of entrepreneurship. Her quest began in 2005 when she first launched Caribbean POSH Magazine. With nothing more than a passion for creative work, her culture, and of course fashion. She was a single mom just determined to build a different kind of future for her and her son. Determined to be a positive role model for him while also inspiring other women like herself.

Since then has developed the magazine into a lifestyle brand aimed at empowering Caribbean Women otherwise referred to as the POSHgirl Movement. The movement is inclusive of the annual POSHgirl POWER Brunch, the POSHgirl fragrance, and the POSHgirl TALK television series on the Caribbean POSH YouTube Channel.

The magazine has featured well-known names such as Shaggy, Wyclef Jean, Lady Saw, and Fay Ann Lyons.

Gaining some accolades along the way with both the Association of Black Media Workers and the Caribbean Fashion Awards. The annual POSHgirl POWER Brunch has featured some of the most influential Caribbean Women in the world such as Yvette Noel-Schure of Schure Media Group [Beyoncé’s Publicist], Recording Artist - Alison Hinds, and Plus Size Supermodel - Trisha Campbell. The leading empowerment event for Caribbean women is also well known for providing opportunity for local and regional models and fashion designers.

Ep044: Are you clear on your end game?

September 12, 2019

Sometimes when we set goals, they don’t always turn out the way we’d hoped and planned for. When that happens it's easy to blame outside factors and say the Universe just didn’t cooperate to bring us what we’ve asked for. What is often the case, though, is we were not clear enough in asking for what we wanted. So how clear are you on your end game?
