EAP 29: Jas Thomas – A Girl With Goals on the Rise – The Importance of Clarity, Motivation, & Accountability
Our guest on this episode of the Early Accountability Podcast is Jas Thomas, a community leader who has started the Girls with Goals Movement to make positive images of women of color more prominent in society. Jas takes a very hands-on approach to this movement, often hosting “empowerment events” that include a social aspect as well as a panel discussion with professionals in the fields of physical health, mental health, and financial wellbeing. She has also recently started a program to help women achieve goal clarity and be provided with the motivation and accountability they need to succeed.
Jas has found that there is a barrier between interacting with an online community and actually meeting with those same people in person. She has built her network with relationships cultivated individually both online and in person, and her advice is to reach out to those people you know you can touch or could impact you. Online, you can easily engage with the social media posts of those people who interest you, and you can search Eventbrite for events in your area where people you want to network with may go.
