168: Lessons from 2022: On Coaching, Moving Abroad, Writing, and Podcasting
In this solo episode, I reflect on my year and the major life lessons I learned, which are informed by my experiences coaching, moving abroad, writing a book, and podcasting.
It’s been a little over a year since leaving my higher ed staff job to pursue academic coaching and entrepreneurship as my new career. It’s been a year since moving my family from Southern California to Northern Portugal. It’s been about eight months since I started and finished a full draft of the Grad School Femtoring Guide, a graduate school admissions book for first-generation and nontraditional students of color alongside my co-author, Dr. Miroslava Chavez-Garcia. And it’s been three years since I started my podcast as a passion project that continues to be a labor of love, care, and community for me. I’ve learned so much from all these experiences!
In this episode I also share what I have in store for 2023, what changes I’ll be making to improve my Grad School Femtoring services, and I also reveal a major personal life update. Listen to find out more!
