Have you ever come away from a conversation with someone you massively admire & respect, so inspired that you want to go out and change the world right away?
That’s how we felt after we had the privilege of interviewing one of the most well-known & respected psychologists in the UK today - Dr Linda Papadopoulos - about her new book: Whose Life is it Anyway? Living through your 20s on your own terms.
Her book reveals some really scary info about the negative impact that social & regular media is having on the identity of Gen Y – both as individuals, and as a collective.
But, even though some of the research she shares majorly depressed us, this book also motivated us to take big action to change the way we let the media dictate & shape our own self-worth & identity.
Trust us, if you are a Gen Y-er (and particularly, if you are a woman), you do NOT want to miss our most shocking & important Skype Nugget to date.
Dr Linda is just so inspiring & passionate in this interview in which she reveals:
- The real reason your social media feed is making you miserable – and what to do about it.
- Why it’s crucial we seek out our own role models as women, rather than just being handed them by the media.
- The only 3 vocations in which women out-earn men (and this is really depressing…)
Also, we’ve got a really important challenge for you to do in the comments section below – one that will have a huge impact on every single woman you know – so make sure you watch to the end of the vid.
We really are so excited to share this interview with you today – it’s had a profound effect on the both of us.
All our love, Persia & Joey
