16. African Feature: Passed and present black inventions

This feature will easily go down as one of our top three most favourite for many years to come. In our research we have learned that the roots of mental dis-ease go very deep and wide especially in the African context. Shinning the light on past achievements has the potential of making the road ahead brighter. When you know who you are it is much easier to apply modern psychology breakthroughs to help you with alleviating real time suffering from real time challenges as you chase your dreams. In this episode we look at historical black excellence that should inform modern black excellence in all industries for an even better generational black excellent future.

15. The confident comeback by Tombozi Mbewe-Ncube

This is our very first live author interview :-) and we are so proud that it is a local author and book. Local is lekker! 
Tombozi talks to us about how she struggled and then triumphed a difficult phase of unemployment in her life. In her book, she shares her experiences in an empowering way that can help anyone take the first step out of depression. We are so privileged to have interviewed her because many talented and skilled South Africans are going through this, with the unemployment rate 34% (StatsSA 2022).
