Brown women work so hard and invest decades to do all the right things. Despite following the perfect checklist to do everything the way she should, she's still not happy. I have been down that path of doctor, wife, daughter and mother- and totally get it! I am a certified life and parent coach after a career change from an exhausted, overwhelmed, unfulfilled four decades. In this podcast we discuss how South Asian women look happy on the outside but are suffering on the inside. These women feel ashamed to admit it because they think they should just be grateful.

I bring forward topics that exist but have been brushed underneath the rug for centuries. Some of the topics include the over-involvement of our families in our personal lives and the constant habit of doubt ourselves before making decisions to avoid making a mistake. It's time to change the trajectory of your life now and generations to come with the coaching tools I share and teach.

I coach South Asian women in my private coaching program and currently accepting new clients. Book a call to connect and inquire about availability.

    Episode 94: Take Responsibility and Finally Feel Powerful

    Episode 94: Take Responsibility and Finally Feel Powerful

    Taking responsibility of your life is the most powerful step you can implement today. No matter what you're struggling with, there is something that you do have control of and that's where you focus your energy. 

    Feeling stuck, defeated and like a victim in your career, marriage, body and relationships is common but believing that there's nothing you can do is what feels powerless. 

    In this episode we talk about taking the first step, even though it doesn't feel like a big accomplishment in the moment. It's the little things that will help you gain power and take control.

    Episode 93: Fear of Leaving

    The fear of the unknown leads us to feel paralyzed to make any new changes in both our personal and professional life.

    Better the devil you know than the devil you don't....

    The known poison is easier than the unknown....

    However you want to say it, the fear exists.

    In today's episode we discuss how this way of thinking especially affects the AAPI community.

    Episode 92: Worker Bee Mentality

    Worker Bee Mentality is a very common theme in the Asian American Pacific Islander Community. In honor of AAPI heritage month, we dive deeper into the immigrant journey. The scarcity promoted the worker bee mindset but this is exactly what keeps you from getting the promotion, equal pay or have a healthy nurturing relationship.

    Episode 91: Knowing the Difference Between Family Heirlooms and Clutter

    Episode 91: Knowing the Difference Between Family Heirlooms and Clutter

    In Honor of Asian American Pacific Islander Heritage Month, we will dive deeper into the significance of who and what we are truly celebrating.

    In this episode we talk about what makes the AAPI community unique collectively and individually. A common thread of immigration and preservation of our culture and traditions in a new land binds us together.

    For many decades and even centuries we have slowly grown to reject our own culture. However, I found that now we can reassess our reasons and re-evaluate our intentions. In todays' episode we discuss the difference between the family heirlooms we want to keep and pass down to the next generation and the clutter we no longer wish to keep.

    Episode 90: Parenting- How to Stop Thinking About the Next Best Thing?

    How do you respond when your child does ok but you know they have so much more potential? What does the little voice in your head say? Whose voice is it?

    Mostly likely it's your parent. As an immigrant you were conditioned to always do your best and that hard work always pays off. What if that was what kept you not enjoying your accomplishments. How can we stop continuing the vicious cycle?

    How to STOP using time against you in your parenting journey

    Time is running out...

    Time will pass you by before you know and it and they will be all grown up...

    I don't have enough time...

    Do these sound familiar??

    Time is the only constant and you have zero control over it but somehow you try to control it.

    In this episode we discuss the various spectrum of parenting and it's relationship to time- either it's moving too fast or slow.

    I share how to stop parenting from scarcity, anxiety and worry.

    I'd love to hear your feedback. What resonated? What didn't?
