#60 with Rosa Jad on a Social Media, Millennial, Self-Worth, and Body.
With a lively and upbeat personality, it’s no wonder Rosa Jad’s job title is actually labeled, “Radio Personality.” The way Rosa delivers her messages is real, leaving no room for important thoughts to be filtered or left unsaid. In this episode of Meathead Hippie, Rosa and Em talk about how the most important quality to pertain in a friendship is authenticity, and Rosa exudes exactly that by being authentic in her own skin. In addition, Rosa speaks on her own struggles and day-to-day challenges she faces as a Arabic Muslim living in the States. “Anytime somebody conforms to what society claims as acceptable, you automatically gave up yourself.” Other topics that are discussed in this podcast include: How to balance your personal and professional lives, a body image mindset, instant gratification in today’s world of technology, and dealing with regrets throughout life. Rosa said it perfectly when she stated, “If you are true to yourself, you give off an aura that make all people feel like they can be themselves around you.” Content Summary: 6:30 Life as a Radio Personality What exactly is a Radio Personality and how does it work? 9:00 Not Being “On” All the Time The deeper you get into your career, the more you must be “on” all the time Biggest dilemma: I refuse to not be who I am 17:00 How Your Phone Can Add Stress Negative effects of artificial light and how your phone can damage body posture The rise of the Millennial generation and social media 19:30 Body Image Mindset “You have to break yourself down to realize that nothing exterior matters.” How to gain confidence in yourself 23:15 Instant Gratification Most people find it easier to feel instantly validated A lesson for Millenials on social media: “Just because you see it, doesn’t mean that’s what you have to do.” 29:00 Finding Your Niche in the Market “You have to find a niche in the market and a drive that pushes you.” 34:00 Being a Muslim in America Learning how to detach from work to reflect with God The surprise element of being Arabic 46:30 Strong Friendships “You saw me for me, and nothing else mattered.” Personality types and being who are authentic vs. inauthentic 50:00 Balancing Your Personal And Professional Life When to know to create because you are in a good place Happiness comes from the expression of self through using creativity 59:50 Regrets How to overcome making yourself smaller to make others more comfortable Battling the boundaries and learning how to speak up Follow her on IG - @rosajad Thank you listeners!!
