In this thought-provoking episode of Sisternomics, Monique talks to Stephanie Perry, a house sitter and influencer, about the concept of taking an 'adult gap year.' 

Stephanie passionately advocates for black women to take at least a year off from work to travel or practice radical self-care, challenging traditional notions of how value is tied to productivity. 

F*** productivity!

This episode delves into the benefits of extended breaks, the importance of self-worth outside work, and actionable steps for planning your sabbatical. 

Stephanie boldly challenges the historical context of 'black excellence,' and provides listeners with resources and motivation to completely redefine self-worth by embracing a life of ease and leisure.
