Be The CEO of Your Life with Dr. Veronica Estrada

Season 2, Ep. 79
Do you dream about the opportunity to change your career or further your education, but you are scared you are not smart enough to make it? Most of the time, these fears come from cultural or social limitations internalized from childhood. As women, and in particular Latinas, we have been taught that certain professions are unsuitable and to silence our dreams and aspirations to the point that we believe we are not good enough or smart enough. This stigma needs to be broken, and we are the only ones who can do it. Stop listening to these old voices and start believing in yourself and your aspirations. It’s never too late to change your life trajectory.Today’s guest, Dr. Veronica Estrada, will tell us about her journey, her goal of healing students through education, and the various opportunities we have to connect and empower one another as women as Latinas in this multicultural space.Dr. Veronica Estrada is a doctor and a core faculty member of the School of Human Development at Pacific Oaks College. She’s also currently serving as faculty council secretary at the college. Dr. Estrada has 14 years of experience teaching in higher education at community colleges. She completed her EDD in higher education, administration, and leadership at the University of Southern California. She's also completed her MS in counseling specializing in student development in higher education from Cal State University Long Beach and her bachelor's in science and development psychology from California Polytechnic University in San Luis Obispo.Join me for a free masterclass on April 26, 28, or 29, and I will provide you with hands-on hacks to successfully break free from old limitations and start living your epic life at full potential.
