#4: Breaking Barriers & Changing Gears with Jolyn GC

Have you ever wondered if you are on the right path in life? Have you ever wanted to make a drastic change and wondered if you should or how you would even go about it? Or maybe like many of us (including myself) you often feel like the odds are just stalked up against you.

If that resonates with you, than I know 100% for sure that you will love this interview. In today’s episode of the Power and Potential Podcast, I interview Jolyn GC who I consider to be a friend and a mentor.

Jolyn GC is a modern and contemporary portrait artist based in Seattle. It wasn’t until after her decision to leave her career as a criminal prosecuting attorney that she rekindled her interest in art. Her signature mixed media collage portraits, called Afro Jazz, serve as artistic contribution to the narrative that #BlackLivesMatter and reflects the African Diaspora with its use of vibrant African textiles and the beauty of blackness.

Influenced by her legal background, Jolyn has developed a social justice art program for teens called TEENERGY that teaches young leaders how to use their creative voice for social change. As the curator and owner of a digital art gallery, she enjoys helping emerging artists define their own artistic paths. When she is not advocating for the arts, she splits her time between Seattle and Jamaica with her husband living a life driven by her mantra: “I have unlimited permission slips to create as I see fit.”


I am telling you, prepare to be inspired! Jolyn is the most confident, yet humble, person I have ever met and I know that you can learn an absolute ton from her.

Want to be more Bold, Brave & Courageous?

Do this right now.

When I realized that I had completely stopped achieving my biggest goals, even though I was still putting in as much effort (if not more) than I ever was, I knew something was really wrong. 

When I started thinking deeply about it, and searching inside of myself for answers, I found that I had become completely paralyzed from fear. 

I was still doing all the things, still super busy, but got to a place where I wasn't making progress at all. I was spinning my wheels and staying in the exact same spot.

In this episode, I share some personal stories around recognizing fear for what it is, and learning to convert it into courageous moments where you have the opportunity to be BOLD and BRAVE. I also share with you a practical exercise that you can do right now to start your own journey of converting your biggest fears into massive opportunities for growth.

The unexpected result is that I became a million times happier, and it helped me to start meeting the big goals that I've had for myself for years.

I would love to know what your key takeaway is from this episode and what big fear you'll be conquering moving forward! Comment below or connect with me over on Instagram or Facebook!
