Spring 2020: Session 102 (Stepping Into Your Light With Dethorn Young)

Have you ever been in a career that was successful, but that you knew that it wasn’t what you were meant to do? Dethorn Young was an assistant vice president at Capital One in New York City, when he decided that this was not what he was meant to do. So he made some big changes including living in other countries for a while, until he found out who he really was and what he wanted to be doing. We talk about how it’s okay to change directions and how to listen to yourself to find who you truly are. Now Dethorn is a personal development coach living in LA, living in his purpose. In our conversation Dethorn is very transparent in that his path was not a straight one, and is honest about some of the struggles he had to endure to get to the place he is today.

The First-Gen Lounge (formerly The Purpose University Podcast) is the FIRST podcast of its kind--highlighting the experiences of first-gens. It is a place where we, first-generation college graduates, come to kick it and talk honestly about this thing called life and biz. In our sessions, you’ll get practical strategies for navigating adulthood, defining success, embracing values, being happier, boosting productivity, managing relationships, improving wellbeing, understanding purpose, and simply living a fulfilled life. From entrepreneurship, mentorship, career and graduate school advice, finances, networking, adversity, disappointment, and fear, to being of service and changing the world around you —we chat about it all (you can expect quite a few laughs, too)! It is here where YOU find community—we’re people who break barriers and defy the odds but understand there is still much ahead of us; therefore, leaning on, and learning from, each other is what we do. In this space, we all belong and will uplift, inspire, and empower one another by sharing our truth as we tell our stories because... we want for you more than anything is for you to continue to grow and become the person you truly desire to be. Simply grab a seat, get real comfortable, and join the conversations every Thursday at 9pm EST! Have a question or topic you’d like to see covered on the show?
