    [S3] [E13] What It Is like to Be Asian American with Vivian Tran, Author of Asian Duckling

    Have you ever felt like you didn’t belong as an Asian American? Don’t worry, you’re not alone.

    Join George and Vivian Tran as they chat about what it’s like to be Asian American. Dr. Vivian Tran helps businesses analyze their needs and develop programs aimed to create a healthy work environment. She’s also writing a book based on her experiences growing up as an Asian American called the Asian Duckling.

    In the episode, the two share their observations in the workplace environment, experiences being raised in between two cultures, and finding a good business partner.

    Here are the things to expect in the show:


    The need for companies to recognize and act on the mental shifts with their employees.
    Conflicts of interest between the American way and the Asian way of living.
    The value of proper communication especially if you’re in a multicultural business.
    The ability of the multicultural mind to do “context switching”. What’s that about?
    Finding a business partner that complements your weaknesses in the work that you do.

    [S3] [E12] How to Start Eco-friendly Living Across the World with MR Maximo, Founder of Mabhuhai Maxima

    This week, we have the opportunity to interview with MR Maximo.  She is a flight attendant, freelance author, and financial advisor.  She currently lives in the Philippines.  Also, because of her work as a flight attendant, she travels throughout the world that advanced her cultural understandings across countries.

    Her work revolves around sustainability and how sustainable living can create the maximum value in your life.  MR Maxima also created a podcast to talk about her journey as an environmentalist.  She changed her brand to the vegan flight attendant in a world that promotes otherwise from her perspective.  Thereafter, she goes in-depth on how to stay true to yourself and how to stay kind and happy for yourself—at the same time, doing all without negatively affecting the planet.  She mentioned how the societal pressure of consumerism can affect you and how to avoid that.
