Angela Akinyemi: Learning Through Reflection
Fei Wu

Welcome to the Phase World Podcast, engaging conversations that cross the boundaries between business, art and the digital world.

It's just really interesting to hear how you move through the world, you know how you affect other people, and I don't think it's very, Common to get that, you know, a MBA I think is such a special place where, you know, officially part of the program and what you do is get feedback and reflect,

you know, who you surround yourself with makes such a huge difference. You know, it can change the way you think about, you know, all these doubts of, do I have anything to say? If you have supportive people around you.

You know, one of the things I appreciate now is this idea of, you know, just possibilities If you wanna be a writer, okay, like, go, right, you can start now and you know, it doesn't have to be a give up your whole life and go right in the woods or something, you know? It can be. 30 minutes a day to writing and, and see what happens.

And at the time it was like this very daunting, you know, decision. What do I wanna do with the rest of my life? And that's the decision that I'm making, you know.

Hey. Hello, how are you? This is FA W and I am the host for the Phase World podcast. This is a show for. Everyone else, instead of going after top one person of the world, we dedicate this podcast to celebrate the lives of the unsound, heroes and self-made artists today. I would like to welcome yet another guest named Angela.

At Kami and uh, she is a very special young lady. I met through LT MBA earlier this year in January, 2017. We both belong to a session number eight of LT MBA and a cohort called Ruby. So what is lt mba? L MBA is an intensive four week online workshop designed by Seth Goden for high performing individuals who want to level up and lead.

There is no physical classroom, so instead we tune in daily via Slack and Zoom, which is a web conference service. And each week we were dropped into different discussion groups to continue our learning with different people. Meeting Angela was refreshing and unforgettable experience. She was not your typical, extroverted, overly ambitious MBA classmate.

Instead, she was curious and an exceptionally good listener who could hear the things that are unsaid in any room. Often critical for our assignments. She was the glue for our group that enabled me, and I'm very sure many others, to learn in a comfortable and nurturing environment. Before we graduated from L B A eight, Angela also won an award from our cohort.

She was then invited to be a coach for future MBA session. In our episode, we talked about both our experiences as students and also Angela as a coach. When I met Angeline in person, New York City, she mentioned Whole 30 to me. The whole 30 is a 30 day diet discovery that emphasizes on whole Foods, and during that time, participants must eliminate sugar of any kind, alcohol, grains, legumes, soy, and dairy from their diets.
