Minda was raised and resides in the land of bourbon, basketball and horse racing: Louisville, Kentucky. She is writing a series of essays for Longreads on dating and politics and her writing has been featured by the Los Angeles Review of Books, the Washington Post, the Guardian, the Oxford American, Teen Vogue, and every other week she tackles the dating woes of strangers as her city's relationship advice columnist at the LEO Weekly. She's working on her memoir, An Anthology of Assholes, about dating as a woman of color in Southern California.

Minda is available for leading workshops on freelancing, networking and writing, as well as one-on-one consultations. View her current workshops through Level Up or email her directly at mindahoney@gmail.com.


I attended Minda Honey’s ‘Memoir Writing Workshop’ series at the KMAC Museum during the months of February and March of 2017. One of my New Year’s resolutions had been to write more and start a blog, so this workshop came at the perfect time. Each workshop provided a relaxing atmosphere and safe space to discuss our experience with writing memoirs (or the lack thereof). My experience with this series provided me the tools to tell a story about various aspects of my life, how I felt during that time, and different ways to describe these moments. More importantly, this workshop helped me to start my blog ‘Black Girl, Introverted’ and yielded long lasting friendships with people I might not have met otherwise. Minda has a remarkable way of pulling people out of their comfort zone (or in my case, introversion) in a way that makes it feel easier to form connections and relationships. I am grateful for the service that Minda provided, and continues to provide, for the city of Louisville.

Minda was funny and engaging and made a room full of self professed introverts seem live extroverts. Honestly, I left the class feeling empowered and rejuvenated and not just in regards to networking but my career and life overall.

Minda provided customized and train-the-trainer versions of her workshop “The New Networking with Minda” for more than 75 workforce development coaches at our American Job Centers in Louisville, Kentucky. Minda is a knowledgeable professional that connected immediately with our staff from all generational groups. Minda is witty, personable and funny. Those attributes made learning fun and allowed participants of her workshop to easily digest and apply concepts. She provided real tools our staff could apply in their own work and to their clients.

Minda is easy to work with, flexible and professional. contracting with her was a great experience. I am happy to recommend Minda as a social media content expert and trainer.
