Is there something in the world that you wished existed?
Imagine how different things would be if you trusted yourself 3 enough to lean into that?
Today’s conversation features the insightful and incredibly warm spirit that is Olivia Charmaine. She is the creative genius and founder of Black Monarch Entertainment as well as “The Tea” which is an IGTV original series that will be moving to televisions near you at the top of 2022.
I have been a fan of “The Tea” because has been a breath of fresh air, authenticity, and a pause to a platform that is often overwhelmed with empty content.
Olivia’s professional resume includes “The Last OG” starring Tracy Morgan and Tiffany Haddish, Lena Waithe’s “Twenties,” and Seth MacFarlane’s “American Dad,” among others. Olivia has worked with TNT, TBS, Kerry Washington’s production company, Sullivan Street. Her full-service production company, Black Monarch Entertainment, recently celebrated its first year. Their goal is to diversify the industry, bring new voices into the fold, and elevate the stories of marginalized individuals who are imagining and telling new narratives.
In our conversation, we discussed:
creating your own opportunities,
how to trust your intuition as well as your own expertise,
not being afraid to not have all the answers,
The importance of community, and so much more.
