Spanglish Vibes and Code Switching, Episode 134

January 19, 2022

There's so much that comes with being bilingual and proud of it. On today's show, we discuss our journeys speaking Spanglish, code-switching, and even what it's like to raise bilingual and worldly kids.

We dig into what it feels like being raised in the middle of two generations and cultures, what that means in the professional world, and how we strive to erase the self-consciousness brought on by shamers attacking our less than perfect grammar, humble upbringings, occasional accents, and everything in between!

Resistance and Using Your Why to Break Through It, Episode 126

November 10, 2021

Today, we bring you another important and honest conversation all about how to handle the resistance life throws our way! Sometimes resistance shows up as people, situations, or even our own limiting mindsets and negative self-talk. Whatever the source, it sure holds us back, and we want it to hold us back NO MORE!

In our usually candid way, we talk strategies and tips from our own journeys, and so many from our countless clients, all of who've persisted in the face of adversity and struggle. Do not miss the words of wisdom that include a special brand of resistance that only Latinos relate to! Stream it, listen, and share to find the inspiration you need to keep pushing with your "why" or goals on the horizon and resistance in the rearview!

Experiencing Infertility with Special Guest, Emily Aguirre, Episode 125

November 3, 2021

In today's show, we hear from a longtime friend and academic educator, Emily Aguirre.

Her vulnerable and candid conversation inspires transparency in all of us. LUL and Emily settle in discussing everything from college to career, online dating to marriage, and finally, infertility to motherhood. This is a beautiful conversation among friends who didn't have the kinds of upbringings where women discussed life struggles such as troublesome periods or hard to come by pregnancies.

This is one you cannot miss.
