It's the last show of 2015 for Brown Ambition! Thank you all for an amazing run these past four months. We'll be back and better (browner?) than ever in 2016. To set us up for the New Year, we want to know what YOU want more of/less of from us next year. More guests? Fewer dance breaks? Different advice? Email us at firstname.lastname@example.org or hit us up on Twitter or Facebook with your thoughts. And if you haven't left a review for us on iTunes yet, now's your chance! It would be the best Christmas present ever.
#TGIF BA Fam! After dealing with our edit issues, we're back this week with a brand new (and a little bit tardy) show for you. Enjoy! As ever, email us your money and career questions at email@example.com or hit us up on Twitter or Facebook.
It's our Sweet 16, BA Fam! Fair warning: if you have not yet watched The Wiz Live, spoilers are ahead! The cast...the music...the WARDROBE. It was truly a night of unforgettable black magic. On the down side, what's a groundbreaking moment for people of color without a little touch of racist shade? Ignorance was out in full force on the Twitterverse and we discuss in this week's Buzzworthy. Next up, is it ever OK to move in with a significant other simply to save on rent? And Tiffany has a question for Mandi: Which race do you identify with more? Anyone who has a mixed racial/ethnic background will relate to her answer. WINS: While Tiffany packs up for a week in paradise (jealous!), Mandi shares a major update about work (and really hopes she hasn't jinxed herself!). We hope it inspires every woman out there to ask for what she deserves.
Sorry in advance for all the singing. We were a little giddy this week...but for the best possible reason! One of us has something MAYJAH to share today BA fam (and it may or may not involve a ring!). After we squeal, we discuss important events of the last week, such as the Soul Train Awards (Baby Face tribute? Win! Choosing creeper R. Kelly to close the show? Fail!) and why it's important to support minority-owned businesses this holiday season. For Brown Break, Mandi gets real about what it's like working in an open concept office — and how easy it makes it for outside work drama to get in the way of your work flow. Tiffany makes a confession about her social life (or lack thereof) and takes a brown break from staying home. We answer an excellent question from a reader who wants to know if it's worth it going to a financial advisor -- and how she's supposed to get the house and family she wants with a mound of student loan and credit card debt weighing her down. WE are here for you Carrre girl! As always, send us your money/career questions at firstname.lastname@example.org or hit us up on Twitter (@theBApodcast) or Facebook.
