Apr 18, 2019

On today’s episode I had the pleasure of chatting with Titilayo Tinubu Ali. Titilayo is the founder of Own Your Own Expertise and has been mentoring emerging leaders and entrepreneurs alongside her career as an attorney, consultant and education policy researcher for the past 16 years. Today we chat about one of my favorite topics, motherhood. For me motherhood has been a powerful and transformative experience. Whether you are a parent or have no interest in being a parent at all, this episode will shine a light on how our learned experiences can be transformative and uncover more of who we truly are. Enjoy!


What you’ll learn:


  • Titilayo’s journey in the law
  • The benefits of adapting a “limitless” mindset
  • The emergence of “trauma-focused” training
  • Tools to break destructive patterns of perfectionism
  • What Titilayo learned through the birth of her twins
  • Key mindset shifts for a happier life




  1. How do you deal with indecision?
  2. How do you prioritize your own happiness?
  3. What is a mindset shift that transformed your life?
  4. Name a book that has inspired your journey.
  5. What do you think separates lawyers who are happy to lawyers who struggle to find happiness in life with a law degree?


Fan Question: How do you move forward when you don’t feel ready?


Best Advice for Finding Happiness


“They are looking for the organization to shift in order for them to be happy.”


“I don’t think we should be choosing our occupation based off of potential.”


“We have so much privilege, what is your own vision for your life and how can you get there?”


“Decoupling your identity from what you are doing.”
