Episode 5: Empowering Asian Women in Real Estate: Kandy Katz’s Journey of Identity, Growth, and Self-Discovery

Hey Fit & Frugal Tribe!

In this heartfelt episode, I sit down with Kandy Katz, a first-generation Vietnamese American, to explore our shared experiences growing up as Asian women. We dive into the challenges we faced in carving out our identities amidst cultural expectations and language barriers with our parents. 

Our discussion dives deep into the journey of self-discovery and the critical importance of building a strong relationship with oneself.

We touch on various topics, including the dual income, no kids (DINK) lifestyle, the power of effective communication in relationships, and the vital role of physical and mental health care. Our conversation culminates with reflections on the transformative power of self-work and the fundamental need to stay true to one's identity.

Come along with us on this intimate journey. Kandy and I share stories close to our hearts, discussing experiences and we're excited to have you with us.
