Today I’d like to tell y’all a little about Mazi Robinson. She’s a wife, Mother, therapist, motivational speaker, and my dear friend! As I have mentioned in several blog posts, 2017 brought me some heartache. Mazi was there literally from day one. She provided a shoulder to cry on, had insightful feedback, and gave me an exceptional reference for a therapist. She was a real friend at a time when I needed one the most.
One of the purposes of this blog is to lift up other women, to give a big ole high five to their accomplishments, and to help bring awareness to their businesses. Mazi did much to help lift me up in 2017. I am honored to call her friend and excited to dedicate my first #WCW to her!
As I said above, Mazi is an Atlanta therapist. She’s a graduate from Vanderbilt University and has a Master’s degree from Georgia State University. I believe it takes a strong person to go through therapy. To look at all the nitty gritty stuff and use it to grow into a more authentic version of yourself truly takes some big kahunas. If you think you could benefit from counseling (feeling stagnant, relationship issues, low self-esteem, etc.), I have no doubt you will be able to find your true self/voice while working with Mazi.
She is a Certified Daring Way Facilitator. She has personally trained with Dr. Brene Brown who is a best-selling author and an expert on shame and vulnerability. I am aware that not everyone is familiar with Brene’s work, but this is a BFD (big freaking deal)!
Mazi is a motivational speaker. She’s given talks in local community churches as well as Home Depot, Chic Fil A, and many other high profile Atlanta businesses. I have never been to one of her talks, but I can vision myself sitting in the audience being fully entertained and unexpectedly educated. I imagine it is not much different than sitting in her living room having a one on one conversation with her. She has a welcoming, warm nature that is hard to explain on paper. But you feel it in her presence.
She is also the founder of Cultivate, which is something I fear I won’t explain well. But before I get into not explaining it well, can we just pause for a second to look at all that Mazi has accomplished and is a part of? Sometimes, I’m like is she a robot? She feels warm to the touch, but I have wondered if I splash water on her face, will she short circuit? I’m not gonna try it of course, I have a feeling that would be a boundary crossing….but I wonder. Back to Cultivate. This is how I best understand it: it is a growing community of women. They meet regularly every other month….the next meeting is January 23rd. Its purpose is to provide a place for women to learn from and nurture one another to be better versions of themselves….it’s a fellowship of women dedicated to personal growth, essentially. I am all about the community of women helping women.
Thanks for taking the time to learn a little about my friend Mazi.
