Episode 18: How To Love Yourself With Dr. Portia Locket


Loving yourself means you are taking your first step

Erica Lynn knows all to well how not loving yourself can put you in a whirlwind. After she went through her healing journey she was able to turn her pain into purpose, her fear into fearlessness and her gift of gab into a platform to change the lives of many.

Everyone has a purpose, but not everyone knows their purpose early in life. At age seven, Portia Lockett was clear about her calling: teaching and encouraging others, which later evolved into her becoming a school teacher.  After a lucrative career in media, she transitioned into speaking and training for major corporations including UAW GM, Chrysler, Women in Cable, the Detroit Area Agency on Aging, and The Detroit Medical Center.
