S3E9: Generational Healing w/ Andrea Ming (@inbusinessandlife)
For many of us, one of the most complicated relationships we have is with our own blood. Many of us don’t realize that the traumas we endure as children are the result of the traumas our own parents faced. When we embark on healing journeys, we don’t just heal for ourselves--our own healing impacts the line of our family and future family to come. This week we bring on Andrea Ming, a Leadership Coach and Breathwork Facilitator who empowers others to do the deep inner work so that they can live their fullest most authentic lives. We unpack the heavy areas of our own lives and share our own journeys of healing.https://inbusinessandlife.com/
S3E8: Confessions of a Micro-Influencer w/ EmilyAeYoung
If you’re on social media, then you know that influencer culture is a ubiquitous part of life now. When people join, the idea of amassing a large following, getting sent free products, and being “instafamous” is alluring. But what is it really like to be an influencer? This week we bring on Emily Shon (@emilyaeyoung), a self declared “ex-influencer” who shares her honest experience of what it was like behind the gram and why she left the world that so many people want to join. From the pressure to perform, the hustle and energy spent behind building an online name, and the dark side of “influencing,” Emily shares how her newfound outlook on Instagram and how it can be a space for pure enjoyment and creativity despite the competitive influencer culture.
S3 E7: The Finance Episode w/ Brunch&Budget (Pamela Capalad)
Who else is wondering why school never taught us about personal finance?! It’s the lesson we wish we had and something we all need! This week we bring on Pamela Capalad, a Certified Financial Planner and host of her own podcast call “Brunch and Budget”! Pamela shares us practical tips on how to get our finances in order, healthy financial habits, and explains to us the basics of finance. It’s time to get that BREAD and learn what to do with it!
S3E6: Asian Voices w/ Betina Hsieh
In today’s social climate, it’s more important than ever that Asian Americans are using their voice to stand up to social injustice and advocate for change. In the last few weeks, our nation has witnessed some of the most unjust acts of violence against Black people. We’ve seen the impact of COVID-19 and the anti-Asian racism become more contagious than the virus itself. Hate is rampant and social injustice is evident more than ever. This week we bring on Betina Hsieh, the Director of Teacher Education and Professor of Education at La Fetra College of Education at the University of La Verne. She focuses her work on teacher education, teacher identity, and Asian Americans and literacy. Betina shares how she uses her own voice in the education space to elevate the perspectives and experiences of Asian Americans while also being an ally to the Black community and other people of color. *Note: This episode was recorded before the killings of Ahmaud Arbery and George Floyd, but the message is more relevant than ever.
S3E5: The Relationships Episode
It’s been a minute since we’ve talked about dating and we know you’re ready for the tea!

We asked our amazing audience to submit questions about dating and we’re spilling ALL THE TEA!

S3 E4: Awakening Joy w/ Ami Park
By now, you know we’re on a constant journey of self growth and self-love. It’s hard, it’s messy, and not always pretty. But we do it because we know that the journey is worth it--that healing for our past and becoming our best selves is within our reach if we choose to put in the work. This week we bring on Ami Park, an actress and mindset coach that teaches others how to become their most abundant selves. We share an honest, real, and raw conversation around how to become our best selves and what manifesting our goals really means.

Approachable and Kind!
Alyssa and Stacey are both so down to earth and great gals. Especially love the episode on mental health with Jessica!
They’re not industry experts and that’s okay.
I think it’s great that they’re doing this. I’m the type of person who likes to keep things to himself. It made it difficult for me to open up to others about my own struggles. I’m in a way better place now where I have a better understanding about myself because of a life changing experience. After listening to this, it made me think about my struggles in the past and how this podcast would have given me a better understanding with things I’m going through. Listening to it is like listening to a good friend who cares about you. You may not be experts but your message was received clearly and enjoyed. Looking forward to listening to your other topics.
So, this podcast defines the current flow of this wave that I’m on. Every month I search for answers to life's bizarre moments. The socially awkward moments, which tend to bring to the forefront emotions, truncated and disavowing; I hope this narrative impressed the mind of a much fresher perspective.
From varying topics, bouncing between diet and sit-downs at your local cafe... I’m intrigued by their how openness and honestly dialogues overshadow and dispel the lingering affects of egocentric personalities we come across everyday, sometimes once a month. To know they’re stress matches that of the most insecure calms me, because it makes me feel as if I’m doing something write and not dlack.
Thanks for turning things around with your tone! I love your vibes. Keep it reall.
