EP129: Kute Blackson on Why YOU Are The One
This is a fun interview, wild ones. Kute Blackson is someone whose name I’ve been seeing and hearing around the transformational space for years but hadn’t had a chance to drop in with until this interview. What you’re going to hear in this episode is his incredible story of growing up witnessing miracles in Ghana that many of us would balk at, going against his family’s wishes and coming to the US when he was 18 years old, and how he interacted with feeling that he was truly being led by a higher intelligence. We talk about navigating anger, how miraculous just being here and being alive is, and he shares a great question his dad used to ask him whenever he would worry as a teenager that I totally loved. Enjoy!
About Kute Blackson:
A charismatic visionary and transformational teacher, Kute Blackson offers a fresh, bold look at spiritual awareness for a whole new generation.
Born in Ghana, West Africa, Kute’s multicultural upbringing as the child of a Japanese mother and a Ghanaian father has spanned four different continents. His unique lineage lay the foundation for his approach to breaking down barriers and unlocking an individual’s true gifts and greatness.
Kute quickly learned that the “outside-in” approach favored by so many in the personal development space had to become an inside-out approach. So he decided to create his own method—a process that liberates the individual and the true self at the core and then pushes those gifts outward into the universe. This helps the individual get in touch with who they really are. It is a process of breaking free—so that the individual can live, give, and share the truest expression of their self. This is what Kute calls “Liberated Living.”
Colored with experiences from his own incredible journey, Kute’s debut book, You.Are.The.One., published by Simon & Schuster and released worldwide on June 7, 2016, shows readers how to unlock their true potential and live a life they love, through love.
Kute is a next generation world leader out to awaken millions to Love and to Live their inspired destiny.
