Raised between Asian and American culture, and in the tech world, where mental and emotional health was not prioritized enough, this nerd aims to demystify what it means to not only be a man, but a human. As society progresses faster than humans were meant to keep up with, how do we adapt to an ever-changing world while strengthening our brittle emotions for resiliency?

    The Money Anxiety As An Entrepreneur

    The Money Anxiety As An Entrepreneur

    I’m trying something new here and recording my podcasts all in one-take and on video! You can watch it on Youtube, “Human Up” (https://youtu.be/OoHzVBZbhi4 (https://youtu.be/OoHzVBZbhi4)).
    Coming up on 2 years since leaving my corporate job now, I’m struggling with sustaining my creative endeavors here in this podcast, in my writing, in my life coaching.
    I don’t have answers for you in this episode. But smoke up some of that green and chill with me as I process this transitional time for me right now.

    I Coach An Asian Entrepreneur Friend On People-Pleasing (ft. Clover Lam)

    I Coach An Asian Entrepreneur Friend On People-Pleasing (ft. Clover Lam)

    This week, I’m sharing a recording of a FB live I was invited to by Clover Lam, creator of the community, Unconventional Asians. With her community, her mission is to encourage Asians to think and act outside of the box and breaking free from the stereotypes that's limiting us from our fullest potential. In her weekly FB lives, she offers herself up as “a client” for other coaches, experts, and therapists to help her through a personal struggle of hers. I figured this would be a good opportunity to share that session with you here as well to get a sense of what coaching could look like for you, as well as my coaching style.
    You can watch the video version in her FB group: https://fb.watch/1vjYvrFJOq (https://fb.watch/1vjYvrFJOq).

    How To Bring Your ‘Fun’ Back (ft. Jeff Harry)

    How To Bring Your ‘Fun’ Back (ft. Jeff Harry)

    This week, I bring on Jeff Harry, a Positive Psychology and Play Coach. He helps individuals, schools, and businesses invite more play into their lives and work. Personally, in my “adulting” process, I left behind so much of my own sense of play, my child-like sense of wonder. I became super serious, responsible, and the “Model Minority”. And I lost access to joy.
    Here’s how we can get that back.

AS RPh ,

Unique take on mindfulness and medicine!

There’s a lot of cannabis podcasts out there but I’ve never come across something like this. Victor is great at being host and contributor!

Human Up = Essence of the Human experience

Victor is awesome! He’s authentic and vulnerable in the way he shows up in his podcast episodes, in his coaching calls and in life. This show is just an extension of that.
If you are ready to develop a greater understanding of our human emotions and how these emotions can be used to not only level up your life but level up the lives of others around you than I highly recommend to check this podcast out, subscribe and listen.

CLopey ,

Soooooo Important!

How well do you REALLY know yourself and others? This is the basis of Victor Ung’s podcast: building your emotional intelligence so you can get to know yourself and others a little bit better. With the ease of access to information nowadays, we get caught up wanting to consume and learn everything about everything. Victor reminds us to not neglect the most important to know about: ourselves. Thanks Victor for this timely podcast!
