Roni Jackson, Co-Founder of Red Flag Mania, joins Yuliana today to share her inspiring phoenix tale. Roni identifies and expands upon two inflection points in her life that altered her trajectory considerably. The first, losing her mother at a young age, and the second, being forced to give up her long time career, both had significant impacts upon her life, helping to shape her and become the resilient and courageous phoenix she is today.

Toni begins by discussing these events that redirected the course of her life, describing the loneliness and isolation she felt growing up in a new household after she lost her mom and how that influenced the way she raised her own children. Regarding her second challenging event, being let go from a company to which she had devoted a huge part of her life, Roni talks about starting a new career and how she had become a resilient force ever since the death of her mom. She also details how she created a strong family unit in a bid to dispel that fear of loneliness and isolation which she carried into adulthood. The episode comes to a close with Roni sharing the one song that truly resonates with her life - a song about finding her space and happy place in this vast world. Finding courage and resilience from not only one, but two pivotal moments in her life, Roni’s phoenix tale here today is one that you will not soon forget.

“Being a motherless daughter is a very challenging place to be. Particularly as you begin your teenage years, you are left without anyone understanding exactly who you are.”

“Not having my mother truly impacted who I am and how I think and even, I think, my devotion to my own children.”

“I had given so much to a company that had given me so little. And not only that, but I think I defined myself by the company, and by what I was doing.”

“Resiliency is certainly a part of the fabric of my being.”

“The problem was I gave a job half of myself. ”

“I learned that I have to prioritize what is most important to me, and always put that at the forefront.”
