To truly "influence" somebody is to help them grow while you grow.

This podcast is a group of binge-able series that cover my experiences living, learning, and meeting people in New York City.

Occasionally I bring on guests who provide unique perspectives around shared experiences or topics that I’m interested in. Join me as I’m on the go, looking to GROW. And who knows, you might find yourself growing in the process too 😉

    EP 48: Take Out The Trash

    EP 48: Take Out The Trash

    Welcome back to On The Grow, I'm Grace Lee.

    This is the forty-eighth episode into the binge-able Mental Health Series.

    "I think we’re all similar in that aspect — we hold onto the things that had purpose at one point in our lives. Whether that’s a relationship that signified our first love, or a person who showed us something we’ve never experienced, or a materialistic item that was bought for a specific reason or given from a special person, we are collectors."



    In Episode 48 on On The Grow, I expand on one of the 4 things I shared in my previous episode — Take Out the Trash. I talk about the “trash” and irrelevant people and thoughts we hold on to — the “trash” that don’t really serve any purpose, don’t help us but instead hurt us, and some stories from my past. I focus on how this affects our mental health and why it’s “healthy” to take out the trash.

    EP 47: 4 Things I Learned This Year + 2020 Recap

    EP 47: 4 Things I Learned This Year + 2020 Recap

    Welcome back to On The Grow, I'm Grace Lee.

    This is the forty-seventh episode and a *bonus* episode recapping the end of 2020.

    "We persevered and learned through the trials and tribulations of 2020. I think we all have a lot to be grateful for because of it. It was the greatest lesson we’ve ever faced. And this doesn’t mean things will magically get better when the clock strikes midnight. This doesn’t mean that COVID-19 disappears and the tragedies stop. This means that the hardships we’ve gone through will prep us for the next course in our lives. It’s built us to be stronger physically, mentally, and emotionally. I pray that we all don’t feel the desire to “run away” from this year and close this chapter to never reopen it again. I pray that we will always look back at 2020 and remember it as the year of growth. The year where we truly grew stronger in our faith, in ourselves, and each other."



    In Episode 47 on On The Grow, I do a recap on the podcast seasons this year, I talk about 4 things I learned this year, what I'm looking forward to next year, and more.

    EP 46: Let's Talk About Addiction (and being Adderall Free after 23 years!) with Audrey Stimpson

    EP 46: Let's Talk About Addiction (and being Adderall Free after 23 years!) with Audrey Stimpson

    Welcome back to On The Grow, I'm Grace Lee.

    This is the forty-sixth episode into the binge-able Mental Health Series.

    “The world requires so much of us. We are required to work 24 hours a day and because we are always on our phone, we are always scrolling. I was constantly working, constantly trying to make my dreams come true. But little did I know, I was killing myself. And my mental health slowly began to deteriorate. Adderall causes extreme Addorexia — which is body dysmorphia, depression, and anxiety.” 



    In episode 46 of On The Grow, I have a conversation with Audrey Stimpson, a friend I met in New York City a few years ago, who shares her battle overcoming an Adderall addiction of 23 years, her experiences seeking professional help and guidance, and a discussion on addiction and what that mentality entails.

    EP 45: How Can I Better Understand Anxiety and Depression? (with Rina Min)

    EP 45: How Can I Better Understand Anxiety and Depression? (with Rina Min)

    Welcome back to On The Grow, I'm Grace Lee.

    This is the forty-fifth episode into the binge-able Mental Health Series.

    "It’s important to check in on people. A lot of times you don’t even know if someone is going through something like that. It’s important for us, especially now, but always to check in on each other. Even if you think someone has their life together. People look at me and see me traveling all the time (safely) and living the best life, but really I’ve just been really depressed for four months. You can’t believe what you see on social media, you can’t judge someone. You’ve just got to ask them."

    In episode 45 of On The Grow, I have a conversation with Rina Min, a friend here in New York City, on her experiences with anxiety and depression. She shares how she has been coping during the pandemic, her experiences with anxiety and depression in a relationship, routines and steps that helped her get through it, and overall, bringing awareness to help others understand how to approach someone who has anxiety and/or depression.

    EP 44: Financial Self-Care and Finding Ways to Earn Money That Align With Your Passions and Values (with Maya Fleming)

    EP 44: Financial Self-Care and Finding Ways to Earn Money That Align With Your Passions and Values (with Maya Fleming)

    Welcome back to On The Grow, I'm Grace Lee.

    This is the forty-fourth episode into the binge-able Mental Health Series.

    "I try to make money a positive experience. I grew up with strong, negative beliefs on money and I really try to look at money as an opportunity. I don’t want to feel shame around money, or feel like I’m not good with money, I want to make sure I’m examining what actually is coming from my spending and my purchases.  If I do see a month where I made too many takeout orders, I ask myself ‘what led to that? How can I make money a positive experience for me?"

    In episode 44 of On The Grow, I have a conversation with Maya Fleming, the author and creator of Gentler Podcast, self-care enthusiast, avid speaker for financial self-care, and a recent college grad from Georgetown University. We discuss how to feel good about money, tips on finding that balance between spending and saving, her biggest tip for financial self-care, and finding ways to earn money that align with your passions and values. This is such an informative episode for budgeting, for those of you who are struggling to balance finances, and uncovering the taboo subject on MONEY.

    EP 43: Holiday Stress, Heartbreak, Weight Gain, and Finding Happiness Till The End

    EP 43: Holiday Stress, Heartbreak, Weight Gain, and Finding Happiness Till The End

    Welcome back to On The Grow, I'm Grace Lee.

    This is the forty-third episode into the binge-able Winter Months Series.

    Does anyone ever feel like they’re moving at a faster speed during the winter months? Like everything on your to-do list doubled or tripled and the deadlines seem so much closer? I always feel this way for some reason. I don’t know if it really IS the fact that my workload is multiplying, but the end of the year always feels like some sort of deadline. Gotta finish this by the end of 2020, gotta finish that... maybe it’s the mentality that everything you were supposed to get done needs to be complete before the year ends. I honestly think that our stress increases because there’s just too much going on in December. 



    In episode 43 of On The Grow, I cover the topics of holiday stress, heartbreak, weight gain, and finding happiness till the end. I’ll discuss the ‘holiday heartbreak’ many of us experience, why exploring yourself and staying single can be a GOOD thing during the holidays, the touchy subject on holiday weight gain, holiday stress and what many of us might be going through right now, and staying hopeful in times of uncertainty to the end of this crazy year.
