Eddie Ng is a businessman who has a knack for giving good advice and letting himself be vulnerable. In this episode, Eddie opens up about his past insecurities, fights with his partner, and how to remain hopeful despite the odds. I first met Eddie when I was a university student (we went to the same uni.), and I knew that he would be a great addition to the podcast. You may disagree with him at some parts - I know I did - but that's all the more reason to listen. In essence, if you want to be self-aware, you need to accept your vulnerability. I had a great time with Eddie on this one, and I hope you have fun with it as much as I did. Enjoy. - Mental Jiujitsu is a podcast about AAPI folk (or Asian-American Pacific Islanders) and how they are shifting the paradigm and changing the current narrative in their work, life story, society, and culture. Topics include aapi/poc representation in the media, the fleeting nature of human emotion, racism/sexism, physics, health and wellness, minority discrimination with like-groups, etc., among a variety of different topics. The crux of these conversations is to create gentle shifts in people's commonly held perspectives and promote visibility among minority demographics.
