#74 Leading Your Life & Silencing Saboteurs w/ Nicki Sun
First of All
In every phase of our lives, the challenges continue to change but one thing stays the same - we are the captains of our ship & the leaders of our own lives.

In this episode of First Of All, Minji sits down with host & filmmaker Nicki Sun to unpack how this has applied to her unique path as an entrepreneur, daughter, friend, creator & woman. She shares her thoughts on a rapidly evolving career, her family values & struggles, plus the mentality that has shifted dramatically to newfound liberation in the past few months. After recently completing an inspiring values & leadership training, Minji & Nicki also dive into the differences of thoughts, beliefs, & dangerous saboteurs from the inner critic & how they plan to address them all.
