    Creative Parenting, Episode 61

    Creative Parenting, Episode 61

    The women of LUL are raising 8 children between 4 months & 14 years old (4 daughters & 4 sons). With all that, there's bound to be a lot of advice, trial & error, and lessons to share from their parenting journeys. In this part two of the "momager series," we chat all things creative parenting, creative consequences, and even the difference between growing up first-gen and how that's influenced our parenting decisions today. You won't hear from three experts, but rather three women doing their very best as moms. Tune in today whether you're a momma yourself, the cool tia, an aspiring momma, or anything in between.

    Therapy and Counseling in the Latinx Community with Special Guest: Dr. Norma Reyes, Episode 59

    Therapy and Counseling in the Latinx Community with Special Guest: Dr. Norma Reyes, Episode 59

    We have a very special guest on this episode of the LUL podcast discussing her journey into the field of guidance and counseling as a young Latina. Couldn't be more pleased to have Dr. Norma Reyes (based in San Antonio, Texas) on this important episode as we delve into her upbringing and career field. Norma's extensive research has focused her career on the development of Latinas. She's a wonderful example to women pursuing higher ed. and progressing! In her journey, we found so many similarities to our listeners. We chat about her rocky path into the field of counseling and the best advice for our communities grappling with taboos associated with seeking professional help and social-emotional counseling. Lots of personal tales in this one as our founders chat about their own experiences in therapy. This is one you don't want to miss!

    Is the American Dream Dead, Episode 58

    Is the American Dream Dead, Episode 58

    A listener asked us to talk about the American Dream, and more specifically, how that dream could very well be dead in the Latinx community. Well, we added the dead part, but you get the drift, yes?Do you think the American dream is alive & well? Is it possible and attainable for today's modern-day Latinos? On today's show, we jump into our own definitions of the American dream, how we strive for it, systemic challenges, and the difference now from when our parents immigrated to the U.S. in pursuit of an American Dream of their own. Listen and comment. Is the American Dream dead?

    Violence Against Women (Trigger Warning), Episode 57

    Violence Against Women (Trigger Warning), Episode 57

    Trigger warning: in today's episode, we candidly discuss violence against women, both physical and sexual in nature. We would like to respectfully acknowledge we are not experts or doctors regarding this very heavy topic. We bring this topic to our show, in honor of Vanessa Guillen who violently lost her life while serving in the military. We've decided to share our thoughts on her murder and the injustices that followed in support of all women, especially those facing a world that doesn't truly do enough to protect our rights, freedoms, and safety. We invite you to listen and share. In today's show, we share the national hotline for domestic abuse: 1−800−799−7233. We would like to also share the national sexual assault hotline: 1-800-656-4673 and encourage women enduring abuse of any kind to urgently call these hotlines and/or reach out for help from a trusted confidant (including us at LUL).As we like to always say, "no estás sola" / "you are not alone!".

    What Wealth Looks Like For Latinas, Episode 56

    What Wealth Looks Like For Latinas, Episode 56

    The best episode recorded to date...hands down. Listen now! We flowed and we felt all the feels talking about Money & Wealth... for women, and for LATINAS! What do you think about when you think of wealth? Does it elicit fear, belonging, or maybe something completely unknown? In this very candid episode, we talk about wealth as women, and moreover, as first-gen Latinas. You don't want to miss this very real chat about changing perspectives, evolving generations, and growing to a place where wealth is more than just the material side of life.

Love it!

As a latina woman, there haven’t been too many people that represent us without the stereotypes who talk about the real experiences we have. I really appreciate the representation & the motivation!

Love

It’s like you’re sitting next to your best friends drinking coffee (or mimosas) and they’re your hyping you up. Every episode makes me encourages and lifts me up. These mujeres are smart, funny, relatable, and most importantly, real!
