THE QUESTION

I had a coaching conversation the other…I was the client. The Coach was an older white male millionaire in his 60’s from the U.K. Things were going well with the session, until he asked my most dreaded/hated question of all…“Why do you choose to only work with Black Women?”

I calmly answered his question, then later mentioned to him how that question it offended me — for what I assumed were obvious reasons (like… because I’m a Black woman).He agreed not to ask me that question ever again.

The more that question comes up in coaching conversations I’m a part of, I’ve been blessed to address the other “reasons” that motivate me, my movement, and my marketplace ministry: 

I WORK WITH BLACK WOMEN ONLY…

1. Because I can


2. Because I choose to


3. Because I don’t need a reason to


4. Because I don’t have to explain myself (to them)…or you {white man/woman)…or argue with them about ‘my pedigree’, or what “qualifies” me to do this work, or if I have a white man’s “permission” or stamp of approval ‘to do this type of work’. I can just be myself and speak freely (and let the Lord use me)


5. Because, why are you NOT focused in on Black women only (white man/woman). We’ve BEEN waiting. NO ONE ELSE is making or holding space (or holding the door open) for us in the Black Life Coach Certification Training space — so, we’re building and opening our own doors — then, holding the door(s) open for the next Black Woman Christian Certified Life Coach’s success
