    Summer 2022: Session 231 (Why I Left Higher Education with Eve Hudson, Ph.D)

    Summer 2022: Session 231 (Why I Left Higher Education with Eve Hudson, Ph.D)

    I had a Facebook memory pop up the other day. It was a picture of me during the last orientation that I'd worked as a full-time professional in higher education. I found myself "feeling some kind of way" remembering that time of my life. I recalled not knowing if I was making the right decision and/or if/how I was going to make it. What I did know was that something needed to change and that was my priority. Peep the full show notes at www.thefirstgenounge.com/231.

    Summer 2022: Session 230 (History Notes: Do What's Best for You with Nzinga Mpenda)

    Are you doing what's best for you? Wait… Let me ask that question differently. Are you doing what's best for you so as long as it doesn't bother, disappoint, or upset anybody else? When we think about doing what's best for us, we must truly do the things that are going to make us happy even if other people don't agree. It's not always the easiest thing to do because of the concerns of disapproval or rejection. When we do not make the choices to do what’s best for us, however, we’ll always be miserable. So, in this chat with Nzinga D. Mpenda, we discuss the importance of being authentic, doing what’s best for you, and learning to choose joy.

    Summer 2022: Session 229 (How to Be A Champion with Kia Edwards)

    When you think of the word champion, you often associate it with someone who wins, a person that's a fighter, to come out on top. So, then, as a first-generation scholar or professional... what does it for you to be a champion? See full session notes at www.thefirstgenlounge.com/229.

    Finding oneself at a crossroad is one thing, but knowing exactly which way to go once there is another. Since our last chat, Dr. T'Airra Belcher has experienced a number of major life changes. We're excited to have her back with us to chat a bit about what to do when faced with making significant pivots in life. Join the Kick It Crew: www.thefirstgenlounge.com/crew.

    Summer 2022: Session 226 (May Your Life Be Your Ministry with Dr. Marvin L. Tiller, Jr.)

    Do you see your life, the work that you do, and the way that you live as your ministry? Have you ever given much thought to your steps being ordered and all you have to do is lean in? The interesting thing about life is that what we believe is usually what we see unfolding in our journey; it's what we tend to get out of life, too.

Inspirational, Energetic and Real

As a new business owner this podcast really speaks to me. Dr. Eve is raw and real in her encouragement of first-gens and business owners. It was honestly kind of the podcast I never knew I needed, I can not wait for more. Giving honest advice with energy and purpose behind it. It feels like a conversation with a knowledgeable friend and that is amazing.

Raw, Honest, and Genuine

It seems like a lot of podcasts, especially ones that try to give life advice, don’t come from a genuine place. This podcast does, and does in spades.

I will actually use what I’ve learned while listening, which isn’t something I can say for every podcast I listen to. The First-Gen Lounge is great, and I’m excited to keep coming back to hear more.

This is not just a podcast, rather it is the key that is unshackling your future.

Dr. Eve is going beyond just talking about issues that matter to adults, rather she is giving you advice, inspiration, and a battle plan to achieve what you define as success. Each episode she focuses on a particular subject where she combines in-depth research and experts who provide the facts of that topic and how to be successful in that area. If you want to up your game in business, relationships, work, or live the best life you can, then you cannot afford to miss a single episode of The First-Gen Lounge.
