Balanced Black Girl

Dec 4, 2018

Today, we’re talking to Falesha Johnson. Falesha is a former professional track athlete turned empowerment speaker, speed and agility coach, and philanthropic adviser.

Inspired by her personal love of track and field, Falesha saw a need for young athletes in her area to focus on speed and agility training. She then built her athletic training company Felite Performance, to help fill this void. She strongly believes that track and field have embedded characteristics in her such as resilience, adaptability, and time management skills that she continues to use in all aspects of life.

Falesha is also a talented public speaker who leads inspiring talks on perseverance and creating a strong, authentic personal brand.


In this episode, we talk about…

  • Her background as a professional track and field athlete.
  • How she balances working full-time as a philanthropic adviser with running her own business.
  • The importance of representation when it comes to coaches (for youth and adults)
  • Setting and achieving audacious goals.
  • Self-care for side hustlers.
