    What does it mean to you to acknowledge that a truth exists? Once you bring it to your awareness, what do you do with it? Recently, someone shared with Dr. Eve that...

    Fall 2022: Session 243 (Making Home Improvements with Eve Hudson, Ph.D.)

    Do understand the depths of change? One of the things I know for sure is that you cannot change what you are not willing to face. When you realize that you want something different for your life it requires that you do something different. There is just absolutely no way around it. Rather than seeing the responsibility of what becomes of your life as a burden, as something to be afraid of, realize you are not powerless and there is joy in choosing what comes of your life.

    Fall 2022: Session 242 (History Notes: 3 Reasons Why Failure is Good with Eve Hudson, Ph.D.)

    If someone had told me a few years ago that failure was good for me, I swear I’d have straight up told them that they were tripping. However, after many years of failing and succeeding in different goals, I finally understood the positive side of failure. Y'all know that I’m a strong advocate of approaching things from a different viewpoint, and failure is no different. Once you start seeing things from a different perspective, trust me, things will change. Be sure to join The Kick It Crew at www.thefirstgenlonge.com/crew.

    Fall 2022: Session 241 (When S#!t Flops with Eve Hudson, Ph.D.)

    When situations in life come about where you feel like things are falling apart, do you spend more time focusing on what’s “falling apart” or how it’s shaping you? It’s likely that you get stuck on what’s not working out, why things went wrong, or even end up blaming yourself. Challenges are uncomfortable, but they are a natural part of life.

    Fall 2022: Session 240 (Shutting Down Successful Businesses with Dr. Emmanuela Stanislaus)

    Most of the time when we hear about businesses shutting down, it's because something has gone wrong. Perhaps, and foremost, financial issues may be the cause. In other cases, it may be that the trend for that product or service may no longer be. Other reasons can even include that a business was bought out and demolished, or even after years of serving the community, it was decided that it was time to retire and shut the business down. What about businesses that shut down although nothing is wrong? Let's dive in. Don't forget to join The Kick It Crew at www.thefirstgenlounge.com/crew.

    Fall 2022: Session 239 (Entrepreneurship Ain't Easy with Quin Taylor)

    As an entrepreneur, when you're determined to make it work, you will. In some cases, the proof of your labor will be evident when folks start tapping you on your shoulder. It's like a mile marker for your success. Entrepreneurship, however, ain't easy. It can be even more challenging as a Black woman when trying to figure out just how to show up.

A Gem of a Resource

Dr. Eve is so engaging and shares much needed information to help first-gen college students. I love listening and share the show with everyone.

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.
