Define Experience: The Generational Gaps in Understanding (With Riya Goel)

10/10/2023
Join Benjamin Chipman and GenZ Icon and author Riya Goel for a discussion on GenZ in the Workplace, claiming our place, and owning our generational differences as agents of change. This an episode for the do-ers or those who aspire to be do-ers. This is about asking why not today, instead of I’ll do it tomorrow. GenZers have long been a generation of people doing nontraditional work, but how do you quantify it? How do you communicate all the things you’ve done as a GenZer who has been forced to live so many lives? Generationally there have been shifts in access to opportunity for us as digital natives and there hasn’t yet been an understanding of that intergenerationally. Join us in conversation about the generational gaps in understanding between what’s expected of GenZ and older generations and when the pressure goes too far. Read the GenZ Book HERE.

Why Not Me? Dismantling Lucky Girl Syndrome

1/31/2023
By now, we've all heard the phrase Lucky Girl Syndrome and one of our friends probably told you that they're in their delusional era (it might've even been me). BUT, is this really a sustainable practice for growth? Are our delusions actually contributing to a better version of ourselves? By getting to the root of what Lucky Girl Syndrome and Manifestations really accomplish for us, we can take more credit for our own success.

This Abundance Mindset (Feat. Spencer Ganus)

12/6/2022
"If I could go back and give myself advice on the last year… I would have just told myself, don't be so afraid to dip your toe into the water of everything that you love, because you have so much time in your young twenties…" In this episode, I am joined by Actress, Dancer, and friend, Spencer Ganus. Following her graduation from Duke University Spencer moved back to LA where she grew up to pursue her dreams. Following the nontraditional path, Spencer shares how she navigates entrepreneurship in the arts, self-doubt, and the abundance mindset she has to help her live more optimistically. This one is for those who ask themselves what if? This is for the ones who trust the universe but sometimes need that little reminder. It's for you and it's for me. Growing up doing voiceover work in media like South Park, Frozen, and more, Ganus shares her journey of rediscovering the things she loves, even when it's not the easy choice. "Even if you cant see what the map is or what the plan is, everything that you do will have a lesson."
