A filmmakers heartfelt journey of LGBTQ advocacy, family, and purpose-driven business.

Welcome to the Your Money Your Business podcast where we dive deep into the heart and soul of business, exploring powerful stories of female entrepreneurs who have transcended their past life experiences and redefined success and happiness in their lives, and finding purpose along the way.

Today we have a very special guest, Lisa N Alexander, a renowned filmmaker and inspiration to all business owners, women and men. Raised in South Los Angeles and now a native Texan, in this episode we're peeling back the layers and uncovering the journey to success amidst life's challenges, guided by the wisdom and life experiences of two very different grandmothers and the backdrop of the teachings of the black church in America.

Embracing Family Values and Wisdom to Discover a New Path and Purpose

Our guest today, Lisa Alexander, knows what it's like to transition from a one to one in person business, to a product based business and now into the artistic world of filmmaking, embracing storytelling as the vehicle helping silenced voices to be heard.

Growing up in the rough inner-cities of South Los Angeles, her path was uniquely shaped by the profound wisdom, core values and life experiences of her grandmothers, and the culture of the black church.

We'll explore the journey of change, self-discovery and lessons that entrepreneurs may face when they take that bold step into a business drive by passion, and by purpose, and discuss the impact of the cultural and familial values that surround them.

What Holds Women Back in Business, and in Careers

Are you feeling stuck, unable to break through those invisible barriers holding you back? Lisa will share her experiences and insights on how to recognize and overcome these limits. She understands that you have the potential and a unique ability like no-one else, yet there's something blocking your path.

Let's explore how to identify and dismantle these barriers, drawing strength (and lessons) from the resilience she absorbed from her grandmothers and those around her.

Understanding How Traumas & Life Experiences Fool Us into Poor Decision-Making

Many of us carry the weight of past traumas, big and small. Join us as we delve deep into the journey of healing and self-discovery. Lisa will share her personal story of healing and how this played a pivotal role in her business journey and unlocked her potential.

We'll discuss how acknowledging and addressing past traumas can free you to reach your full potential.

The Power of Story Telling and My Father, The Queen Feature Film

Lisa is a renowned filmmaker who understands the power of storytelling. We explore how storytelling can be a tool to both heal and to inspire others. We'll touch on how she discovered her passion for storytelling, and why she's so passionate about helping the Not for Profit organizations. She'll share her experiences in using her art to give a voice to those who can't speak for themselves.

Our conversation takes a turn to discuss the LGBTQ challenges and her personal challenges growing up with a closeted father who was emotionally unavailable both for her, and himself.

This discussion is the backbone behind the creation of the screenplay and her upcoming feature film, My Father The Queen. This is a sensitive and honest discussion that provides valuable insights into the LGBTQ community and the importance of empathy and understanding.

Other Things from This Episode are:

  • Drama and the power of therapy
