“I Have Learned To Think With My Heart” with Kadeem Alston-Roman
I had the pleasure of interviewing Kadeem Alston-Roman, wellness practitioner, spiritual therapist and self identified “K-Pop fanboy”. He is the co-founder of Full Force Wellness & Dance Repertory, the only organization in the United States that combines clinical and holistic practices with physical movement. He is also the founder of Kadeem One, a full service wellness firm that caters to making wellness and spirituality fun by adding a dose of pop culture into the mix.
Jean: Thank you so much for joining us! We did a feature on your company a year ago, can you share what’s new with your brand?
Thank you for having me! Sure, yes. So since last year I have created a spin off of my organization, Full Force Wellness & Dance Repertory and created Kadeem One. Imagine this — Kadeem One is if Tony Robbins, Saturday Night Live and Beyonce got together and had a baby! Sorry, Jay-Z. [Laughs] Simply put we help to enhance the lives of others while making it fun and adding a little bit of spice & sass, because who doesn’t want to feel (Sasha) fierce with their spirituality!
Jean: What have you learned over the past year as an entrepreneur?
Over the past year, I have learned to deeply follow my intuition. As an entrepreneur, I believe too much time and energy is spent on the mental aspect of business oppose to the heart aspect. Science has shown us that there are brain-like cells in the heart called sensory neurites. These cells think, feel and act separately from the brain. What would happen if we all began to literally think with the brain in our hearts, oppose to the brain in our heads? Wait. Since saying the word intuition may come off as too “woo-woo” for some people let me switch my answer to your question. Over the past year I have learned to think with my heart. Yep, that’s it. Think, lead and follow my heart.
Jean: Are you working on any exciting projects now?
Well since the completion of my website — here comes the shameless plug — KadeemOne.com and accepting complete immersion in this field, I have noticed that certain things have just started manifesting. One of which is an exciting project with a university, whose name I cannot disclose yet since this is not public information in their community, that has decided to use my skills and gifts by bringing me in as a wellness consultant. My role will be to offer holistic wellness advice and services through their online platform. Yay!
Jean: Where do you see your brand in the next year?
Oh Jean, this question gives me all the feels! I know the “right” answer is to say I see my brand being lauded by mainstream outlets and to be working with influencers and celebrities. And yes, to all of that. So be it! But to be honest, if my brand is serving the masses by helping people Upgrade Their Light, the slogan for my brand and we are living abundantly through truth and in resources…and I become best friends with Oprah and Gayle, then I will be happy. That is a good mark and where I see my brand living next year.
