Selflessness is killing you, Sis.

W.E. mean that literally and figuratively. The data on health, wealth, and overall freedom for Black women and women of color tells us that society doesn't do right by us; and if we're honest, sometimes we don't do right by ourselves either. This isn't about blaming ourselves. Like many of us, you might not have been taught how to create the self-care and self-advocacy system you need to protect, restore, and enrich yourself because you thought, or were told, that was selfish.
This is for you.
Dr. Wise and Dr. Ellis (W.E.) have developed a research-based and practical "how to" Selfmore System that teaches you how you can be and have more in 5 main areas of your life that will bring you more peace, more resources, more opportunities and more YOU for you.
Want MORE?
Become a Selfmore Woman
Self·more /ňąselfmôr/ adjective - as W.E. define it
1. The highest act of compassion, agency, and self-care one can have.
When someone lives selfmore, they show up in the world whole, healthy, unapologetically, and with authenticity. The selfmore woman dismantles the myth that they must give everything, including their own well-being, for the benefit of others. 
2. Someone who challenges and deconstructs the lie that they must be useful to, and in service of, others in order to prove their worth.

What's The Selfmore System? 

What W.E. know from our extensive research and lived experiences is that when women are provided the appropriate tools and support, they tend to have more in their personal and professional lives.

More boundaries, more peace, more resources, more fulfillment.

To equip you with these tools, W.E. have created a comprehensive Selfmore System that incorporates our 3 C's: Centering, Coaching, and Celebrating diverse women through culturally relevant content and wraparound support to teach you how to be and have more in.  Over the course of 6 weeks Selfmore Sojourners (you) will have weekly video lessons, weekly podcast episodes, and weekly Q&A opportunities with Dr. Wise to help you implement your learnings and answer your real-life challenges, in real time, with real solutions.


5 key areas of greatest impact and opportunity in your life:


Unit 1:  Yourself

Learn how to create the personal life and career you want and deserve - by first prioritizing and protecting your wellbeing, then setting your Selfmore vision and goals.


Unit 2: Your Theater

Learn how to set and enforce your "life's theater" rules (boundaries), and the art of the Personal Intermission.


Unit 3: Your Coins

Learn how to assess and reset your relationship with and mindset around your money, including who deserves it.


Unit 4: Your Experiences

Learn how to "protect the rock" (self-care), and rebuild even higher (self-advocacy).


Unit 5: Your Moves

Learn how to implement your new Selfmore Strategic Plan, get unstuck, and map out next steps for any career challenge or opportunity.




What's the Selfmore Sojourn?

It's a 6-week intensive virtual sojourn (journey) self-paced course that culminates with your very own Personal Strategic Plan in the above mentioned areas: Self, Theater, Coins, Experiences, and Moves.  You'll finally get the structure, tools, accountability, and support you need to put yourself on your long list of to-do's. You'll have an expert coach on your team so you're not on an island trying to figure it out on your own.  Think of it as a self-care vision board and a self-advocacy New Year resolution put together, but with specific and actionable next steps to meet your goals.

  • Inviting and keeping the right people in your personal and professional life

What Brings Us To This Work?

For us, it's personal


I've experienced firsthand what I call the Black Cinderella Syndrome, where I did the work of three people in the workplace because I thought it made me a good "team player", but folks still went out of their way to try to keep me from getting my ticket to the (advancement) ball. I advanced to executive leadership positions and success as an entrepreneur in spite of all the microaggressions. I maintained my peace and I learned some invaluable Selfmore strategies that I want to share with other women to succeed in their personal and professional lives.

Dr. Camille Broussard Wise
Founder & CEO of Wise Leadership Consulting

I remember the day I learned about the power of the isms in the workplace like it was yesterday. The pain of realizing that, although I had the most knowledge, the most skills, the most poise, the most loyalty, the fact that I was expendable almost took me out. I had the degree, I had the title, I had the experience, I paid my dues, and everyday I still had to justify my seat at the table. When they told me "you need to cut that hair" I knew I had to "Reclaim My Time." In order to live #Unleashed, I had to learn firsthand how to be selfmore.

Dr. Addie Ellis
Researcher, Writer, Founder #UnleashedYou

W.E. can teach you and coach you through because W.E. know, firsthand...


About that job...


You thought that giving more of your time and taking on more would mean that they would value you more. That you would be paid and promoted more because you've been conditioned to work "twice as hard". How's that working out for you, Sis?

About them people


You thought that "carrying everyone else's water" by taking on their burdens as your own meant you were a good "team player", friend, partner, or relative.  That if you gave selflessly that your sacrifices would be noticed and rewarded. Has that been helpful, or has that left you feeling more depleted?

About those finances 

You thought because you were making more money that you owed it to others to "help" them. You're judged for choosing how to spend your own money, and you can't get out of the grind-gratification-guilt cycle that's weighing you down.  Did it get lonelier as you climbed the financial ladder?

About those "isms"

You thought more strength and resilience were enough, but racism, classism, sexism, ageism and all those other isms are still weathering your body, mind, and spirit.  Did buying into the "strong Black woman" trope help or hurt you?
