Show Notes

Yan Yu has a story to tell and we can all gain a bit of insight from her share.  Imagine cleaning toilets and working in a factory day and night where the hustle was real.  Imagine now, this same you, as an analyst on the trading floor of Wall Street then to finally recognize that wow - it no longer serves me to be results-oriented!  Such a foreign concept to many of us. 

In this episode, Lolita and Yan talked about everything from gratefulness and faith to worthiness and temptation and so much more.

Yan can now be found in areas of ministry, health, finance, Metaverse, AI and so much more!  Tap into this episode to be reminded of what a bit of perseverance, honesty, and faith has the power to do.

S1E8 - How to Journey Forgiveness Freeway (It May Be Bumpy!)

It's a bonus episode on Forgiveness!  Who is forgiveness for? Can you forgive?  Will you forgive?  Forgiveness Freeway is Stop 6 in my book, "The Intersection of You & Change" and this episodes journeys you through the various sections at this stop (chapter). Whether you have my book or it is still on your to-do list, we chat through how we each may better embrace forgiveness, are reminded that forgiveness does not mean "to forget," and we even find a bit of time to craft our own forgiveness story during the conversations portion of this episode.Sometimes we get caught up in the emotions, the hurt, and sometimes even the ego of it all, which hinders our progression forward.  How can we become our best self if we are holding on to the baggage that forgiveness is leaving around?   Forgiveness Freeway is only one of seventeen stops within my book of self-discovery, motivation, empowerment, and both personal and professional growth. From Journey Junction to Gratitude Gateway, this will challenge your thinking today and I am super excited to get right into it!  If you love what you hear, please grab your copy at https://www.lolitawalker.com/the-book.  The affirmation that kicks off this episode is "I am a forgiver and I forgive me first."  Whew! Major right?  It sounds great, yet it's not the easiest thing in the world to do.  Today, I welcome you to the kitchen-table (minute 0:50), gift a bit of coaching & soul work (minute 4:36) to challenge your thinking, enjoy a few cocktails (minute 14:42) to celebrate all of the greatness you are, then we have some good ole fashioned conversations, just you & I (minute 16:36).   In coaching, we hear a poetic acronym (F.O.R.E.G.I.V.E.N.E.S.S.) ...

S1E12 - How Adversity Can Help Find Your Purpose (with Chef Keesha O'Galdez)

Chef Keesha O'Galdez shares how adversity helped find her purpose.  When two Simmons Graduate School of Management grads get together, we have some good ole-fashioned conversations.  Today, we are having a bit of fun and leaving you with a few nuggets and experiences that you may be able to relate to.  From losing a job to moving to a new city, to hearbreak, then leaping into your purpose, we talk it all!  There's even an aha that stuck out, as I travelled down memory lane, to my Simmons days.  It had me giving a shout out to Dr. Stacy Blake-Beard, whose leadership course helped me find aspects of my inner voice that were simply waiting to be unleashed. You wouldn't know it now, but Chef Keesha didn't initially know that gifting people joy through her cooking was her purpose. It was through adversity that she discovered that .. this is it!  The thing is .... most of us are no different. Have you conqured adversity in your life?  Hmmmmm. I am sure the answer is absolutely.  If I were to ask you how you define purpose, what would you say?  Do you believe that you have discovered YOUR purpose? It’s not uncommon for the answer to the latter question to be "not really." Just know that you are not alone. On this episode, I’ll share four considerations when traveling your path that may be plagued with adversity, we'll have a few laughs & celebrate a few wins!The affirmation, from Walker & Walker Enterprises, that kicks off this episode is " I am choiceful in creating the footprints on my journey."  We will challenge that today.  You can grab your 40-card affirmation ...
