Have you ever needed to have a difficult conversation at work? You know the one where your coworker might have touched your hair without permission, and --being that it's 2019-- you were left standing in shock not knowing how to address it? Or a colleague or manager has said something disparaging about you or your work that you know isn't accurate? Lastly, maybe you remember a time where you had an idea in a meeting and one of your colleagues continued to talk over you. You left that meeting thinking to yourself, "I should have said something."
If you missed last week's After 6, the FOMO was real.
We had the pleasure of talking with actress, comedian, and producer, Amanda Seales. Miss Seales dropped some serious gems on us, and answered all of your questions.
In case you missed it, we've got you covered. Watch below as Seales discusses: career longevity, self-worth ("If you can't get the yes from other people, get the yes from within"), the recent events in Charlottesville ("Silence is not an option"), being a better ally by doing your homework (“Don’t come to the barbeque without a dish”), negotiation, her #Sealhive, and people that inspire her. And you definitely do not want to miss her Tiffany Haddish pep talk!
Watch the entire thing below:
You can catch Amanda Seales on Sunday nights on HBO's Insecure, at her live comedy show, Smart, Funny, & Black in Los Angeles, and on her upcoming college stand-up tour.
