Wellness & Life Advice 

Listen in as Janet Alvarez, Laurie Santos, and Allyson Felix offer their advice on how to be happy, how to secure yourself financially, and how to remain focused on your goals in uncertain times.

Janet Alvarez, a bilingual personal finance and credit expert and a financial news anchor covering the pandemic’s economic impact, launches the conversation. She dives into how women can build a stronger post-COVID future for themselves, including educating our daughters and sons about money.

Next, Dr. Laurie Santos, a professor of psychology at Yale University, explains the research that suggests if we want to boost our success in the workplace, we need to focus on wellbeing first. She cites several studies proving that cultivating wellness—including personal connection, gratitude, and mindfulness—can be a quick path to improving our creativity, our job performance, and even our job satisfaction.

Finally, Allyson Felix, the most decorated track and field Olympian in history, speaks about how she used her platform to raise awareness on the risks and dangers that black women face during pregnancy and childbirth. She also explains the benefits of participating in sports, including learning time management skills, cultivating a work ethic, remaining optimistic in the face of challenges, and dealing with defeat in resilient and healthy ways.
