Show Notes

Have you ever experienced a setback or learned a valuable lesson through trial and error that you wished you could share with others so that they would never have to go through what you have been through? Or sometimes the stories we decide to share with those around us are to connect with them through similar adversities. Our guest this week on MProper Mimi is Stephanie Smith and she and Mimi Jacks talk alot about why we share our stories and why they are important. You also get your fair share of sisterfriends chatting about how the division of Black and white in the US creates a culture that encourages turmoil. We list a few of our fav books and movies in the MProper Suggestions below. Be sure to subscribe to the MProper Mimi YouTube channel to see or listen to us as well.
