Dear First Gens,

Welcome to The First Gen Madrina Blog! We have made it to the first episode of this month with a special first-gen guest! We continue the conversation on “New Beginnings” with Yanet, a self-mastery coach and speaker. Yanet shares her incredible story of leaving her home country of Cuba for a better life at a young age. With family back home, Yanet felt compelled to receive her education and start her career to help support her family. After years of working as an engineer, Yanet began to feel unfulfilled and unhappy. She found herself questioning if her career was a right fit for her. As a first gen, Yanet did not have the immediate resources or information on making a career move. After discovering her love for helping others, she found supports that allowed her to transition into becoming a self-mastery coach. Yanet now finds herself feeling fulfilled and proud of her career.

Throughout Yanet’s journey, she has overcome many obstacles as she transitioned from a corporate career to entrepreneurship. Discover how she found clarity, courage, and confidence to pursue her wildest dreams. Join us on this podcast that celebrates new beginnings, reinvention, and the resilience of first-generation individuals. Gain insights, motivation, and practical tips as we embark on journeys of self-discovery and empowerment. Tune in now and be inspired to rewrite your narrative and step into a life of abundance.
