    Summer 2022: Session 219 (What'cha Gonna Do Differently? with Eve Hudson, Ph.D.)

    Everyone, me included, wants the next week, month, or year to be better than the previous ones. That's why we set goals and write down new year's resolutions because we all crave the feeling of eventually accomplishing something. But here's the thing, if you really want to succeed, you have to make changes to the things that are holding you back. I believe that the secret of change is not focusing all of your energy on fighting your old habits, but on building new ones. But now the question becomes, "How do I make changes to something as unpredictable as my future?" Simple, don't make it complicated. Have a set goal, highlight what needs to change, and, most importantly, do what makes you happy. Check out the full session notes: www.evingerleanworldwide.com/219.

    Summer 2022: Session 218 (Know Who You Are and Don't Rush with Eve Hudson, Ph.D.)

    Socrates, a famous Greek philosopher once said, “To know thyself is the beginning of wisdom.” I might not know what he had in mind at that time, but I do know that discovering your true self is the best thing you can ever do to yourself. Why? Because when you know who you are, you don’t look for validation from others. You just do what feels right for you. But the best thing of all is it allows you to bypass the numerous trial and errors caused by putting energy into the wrong things. I believe that once you know yourself, it’s easier to become more confident, understand your purpose, and start making a bigger impact on the world. Remember, knowing yourself creates the space for you to be happy, and not rushing yourself creates opportunities for you to evolve. Check out the full session notes: www.evingerleanworldwide.com/218.

    Spring 2022: Session 217 (History Notes: Why Businesses Fail with Eve Hudson, Ph.D.)

    Spring 2022: Session 217 (History Notes: Why Businesses Fail with Eve Hudson, Ph.D.)

    Most neighborhoods have that one store that changes into a new business every six months. It was once a barbershop, then it was a pizza joint, then soon after it became a grocery store. These small businesses were launched and shut down almost before anyone took notice of them. And it breaks my heart. According to the Small Business Administration, 8 out of 10 new businesses fail within the first 12 months. That's a whopping 80%. But why? What can we learn from the tremendous amount of failure in the entrepreneurship world to apply to our business ambitions? From a broad perspective, the primary reason businesses fail is they simply run out of cash. However, the cracks in the foundation start well before lights out.

    Spring 2022: Session 216 (Everybody's Got Some S--t with Eve Hudson, Ph.D.)

    Comparison is a thief of joy. But we're human, and so it's normal sometimes to compare ourselves to others. However, comparing yourself to others will only leave you feeling frustrated and anxious. Furthermore, it doesn't help in creating the life you want. It instead takes away irreplaceable time and energy that could have been better spent elsewhere. Here's the thing; there will always be someone more intelligent, attractive, or successful than you. The trick is understanding the unique value that you bring to the table. Remember that nothing and nobody is perfect; everything is special in its own way. So, instead of believing that the grass might be greener on the other side, try and nurture the grass that's on your side of the fence. After all, the grass is greenest where it's being properly cared for. Check out the full session notes: www.evingerleanworldwide.com/216. Join the movement: www.evingerleanworldwide.com/movement/

    Spring 2022: Session 215 (Please STOP Sitting On Your Dreams with Eve Hudson, Ph.D.)

    A typical human being dreams an average of about 4 to 6 dreams per night. If you can experience at least four dreams a night, why is it that you’re still stuck on that one idea that failed to materialize? How you want your life to look doesn’t have to be constant. Things change, and new passions are discovered daily. Don’t limit yourself to a certain number of objectives just because that’s what society dictates. If you feel like the path you’re currently on is not the right one for you, by all means, change it. The prospect will seem daunting but trust me; you won’t regret it. Check out the full session notes: www.evingerleanworldwide.com/215. Join the movement: www.evingerleanworldwide.com/movement/

    Spring 2022: Session 214 (New Friends or Nah? with Eve Hudson, Ph.D.)

    Few things make a more influential impact in life than supportive and loving friends. Being able to depend on someone and having that person count on you in return is one massive flex. People might walk in and out of your life, but true friends will stay, and if they do leave, they'll have left a lasting footprint in your heart. That said, the question is, do we really need any more friends, especially as we grow older? If so, when do we stop making new friends? For me, building relationships with new people never stops. And while it might be different from how we made friends as kids, the same principles apply. Find people who have something in common with you or are working towards the same goals as you. But just never stop. You never know; your new friend might be the missing piece of your success puzzle. Check out the full session notes: www.evingerleanworldwide.com/214.

Dr. Hudson does such a good job covering a variety of topics. The guests offer valuable insight as well. I would recommend this podcast to anyone looking to be inspired and informed!

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.
