Your Superwoman Cape Isn’t For 24/7

With Jateya Jones, Jateya Jones Consulting

Being a superwoman or feeling like you have to wear your superwoman cape 24/7 can feel like a job that you can never quit — and that’s exhausting, but it doesn’t have to be. We all have superpowers, but knowing when to tap into them and when it’s time to use our natural gifts is where our true powers lay.


If you think about it, Superman wasn’t Superman all the time. He’d switch into Superman when he needs an extra boost but then go back to being Clark Kent. As women of color, we often forget to balance the two because society has trained us to think we must always be a superwoman.

In our second episode in the Awaken To You! month-long series focused on intentional reflection and awareness, we are getting to the root of the good, the bad, and the ugly of being a superwoman with my guest, Jateya Jones of Jateya Jones Consulting.
