WE are back from a long break! We finally pulled it together and this would be the first of the final 6 episodes for our fifth season. Thank you for your continued support and I hope you will continue to support us and listen to the rest of our season to be released weekly until we finish probably in February.

Today, we have Amy Yip joining us for a conversation about:

-Working in corporate America, from consulting to marketing for Google 
-Her Breaking point and how that led her to become a somatic life transformation and mental fitness coach
-Mental Fitness and how Amy gained clarity in her life after feeling lost, burnt out and hitting rocking bottom 
-Talking to your immigrant parents about the deep topics to understand them 
-Her book, Unfinished Business: Breaking Down the Great Wall Between Adult Child and Immigrant Parents
