    Ep 74: How intuition shifted her from lawyer to comedian w/ Jocelyn Chia

    Ep 74: How intuition shifted her from lawyer to comedian w/ Jocelyn Chia

    For our final guest episode, I am interviewing one of my friends, Jocelyn Chia about her journey from being a lawyer to a professional comedian. What I love about her story is the moment when she knew that comedy was her passion and she could no longer deny it so she took a major risk and it paid off. Such a compelling story.

    Jocelyn Chia She has been featured on cnbc.com, a guest comedian on the Howard Stern Channel of Sirius XM, and a guest host on MTV. jocelynchia.com, our IG: @jwilliamsesq

    Ep 72: Creating a non-traditional path to acting through yoga w/ Amanda Gloria Valdes

    Ep 72: Creating a non-traditional path to acting through yoga w/ Amanda Gloria Valdes

    Today I had the pleasure of interviewing actor, yoga teacher, and modern-day goddess, Amanda Gloria Valdes. What I love about her is how she has created a two-prong business and each part feeds the other and essentially created a non-traditional path to accomplishing her dreams. I think you're going to love this one.

    Amanda's mission is to bring yoga to Non/traditional spaces and storytelling through acting. You can find her on IG @amandagloriayoga and us at @jwilliamsesq

Homework to myself

I have been listening to this podcast for a few weeks now and am really enjoying it! I am a visual artist who recently quit her day job and need some structure and some doses of inspiration and encouragement for this new chapter of my life. I appreciate the wide selection of guests and the different information they have to offer creators at every stage of their careers. Thank you for doing this. I look forward to listening for a long time to come.
