Episode 9: Simplifying real estate investing for Gen-Z
Hello, Running Late listeners, I had a great chat with Vayna, a young 20-something realtor based out of Seattle who is simplifying real estate for the younger generations. Vayna is a real estate agent based out of Seattle, who found success within real estate from the young age of 18. Since then, she’s sold over $6 million worth of real estate. Vayna uses her platforms on Tik Tok and Instagram to teach the younger generation about real estate investing, preparing financially for homeownership, and how to get into the field at a young age. She’s going to be telling us about her journey and hopefully giving us some tips on how to get started in real estate. We discussed whether Vayna jumped in headfirst into real estate full time, or started off part-time until she found success. What advice she has for those who want to try their hand at real estate but aren’t ready to commit to full time, and of course, her first successful sale and what her first paycheck looked like. She says real estate investing is owning a business, and with that comes business challenges and hurdles she's had to overcome. Creating a business plan, marketing herself, time management, and burnout are some of the things she mentions. Here are some resources, books, and people she would recommend to people interested in learning financial freedom and real estate and overall improving their lives: The Subtle Art of Not Giving a F*ck David Goggins Tom Bilyeu Tatiana Londono Tom Ferry podcasts Habits tracking apps *Audio disclaimer* Unfortunately, in this episode we ended up having a lot of background noise that we just weren't able to cut out of the episode without compromising the contents of our conversation. I apologize for the inconvenience and moving forward, I promise to keep our sound quality crystal clear!

Episode 8: Fast fashion, launching a magazine and redefining modesty
In this episode, I spoke with Ifrah Akhtar, who is is founder and Editor-in-Chief of MODEST Magazine, a fashion magazine exploring and redefining modesty. She works on a number of other projects and enjoys learning, writing, reading, and baking. We talked about what piqued her interest in writing and publishing a magazine, how she hopes to see it grow, and some of the biggest hurdles she's faced thus far, one of them including brands being more selective when it comes to nano-influencers and magazines with smaller audiences. I asked her the classic Running Late question, that being is there something she feels like she's running late or behind for. I think you'll really relate to her answer. She mentions how her background isn't in communications or business, so she's been self-teaching herself through this journey, and of course, we covered social media woes. Here are some of the organizations mentioned that you can use to educate yourself about inequalities in the fashion world and beyond: Slow Factory Foundation, Fashion Revolution, The New Fashion Initiative Book mentioned: All About Love: New Visions Connect with me: Email Me / Send Music: email@example.com Twitter Podcast Instagram Personal IG Facebook Use the hashtags #runninglatepodcast, #runninglatewithemel and #RLWE to discuss us on Twitter, FB and IG!

Episode 7: Do you get the birthday blues?
The "birthday blues" can be defined as a general sadness or feeling down by a person on or around his or her birthday. Here are some factors that make us sad on our birthdays: The thought of aging Having high expectations for how you want the day to go and how you want to celebrate A lack of accomplishments, or comparing your accomplishments to your peers your age Not receiving the amount of love as an adult that you did as a child Nostalgia for happier times, happier birthdays with fewer responsibilities Read more at https://www.scienceofpeople.com/birthday-depression/ Connect with me: Email Me / Send Music: email@example.com Personal IG Use the hashtags #runninglatepodcast, #runninglatewithemel, and #RLWE to discuss us on Twitter, FB, and IG!

Episode 6: Should you fake it till you make it?
I've heard the phrase "fake it till you make it" thrown around for most of my life now but after recently revisiting my values I've decided this piece of advice isn't right for me. I'd like to practice until I make it because I think "fake it till you make it" has been taken too far. Where do we draw the line before we're just being dishonest with those around us? I value authenticity and fake it till you make it seems like it's a fast track to failure.

Episode 5: The addiction to the "next best thing"
As a self-proclaimed addict to the "next best thing", I decided to take matters into my own hands and do some research on why we're never satisfied with what we have right in front of us. Although I may not have found all the right answers, I did discover the idea of "destination addiction" and that feels like a good start. It's nice to be able to put a name to a feeling. The feeling of always wanting more out of life. I actually already talked about this on Instagram, so check out that post here. Check out more from Robert Holden, the guy who actually coined the term. Do you resonate with anything I discussed in this episode? I love talking about this stuff, so feel free to reach out to me via Instagram or email to talk all about it! "'Destination addiction' is used to describe the belief that happiness is in the destination or can be found somewhere else rather than in the present." - Aisha Beau Connect with me: Email Me / Send Music: email@example.com Twitter Podcast Instagram Personal IG Facebook Use the hashtags #runninglatepodcast, #runninglatewithemel and #RLWE to discuss us on Twitter, FB and IG!

Episode 4: Death By Information Overload & How To Cope
This episode is all about "information overload" and how it's frying our brains and by our brains I specifically mean mine. What is information overload? The term “information overload” was coined by Bertram Gross, the Professor of Political Science at Hunter College, in his 1964 work – The Managing of Organizations. What does that mean? Gross defined it as “Information overload occurs when the amount of input to a system exceeds its processing capacity. Decision makers have fairly limited cognitive processing capacity. Consequently, when information overload occurs, it is likely that a reduction in decision quality will occur.” If you want to read more about the topic, here are some articles I came across during research: Information Overload, why it matters and how to combat it How to Stop Information Overload and Get More Done Thought piece: Information Overload in Our Digital Age Here's a funny photo about our obsession with information. Why should you care? Because, intake of information at this rate is not sustainable. Our attention spans are shortening and research shows that even our IQ's are dropping because of information overload. For your own sanity, you should probably cut down on the amount of information intake, an information diet if you will. Do it before you drive yourself mad. Seriously. DO IT.

Episode 4: Unedited rant session about headline stress & the 24/7 news cycle
Hey hey! I generally wouldn't post things like this on Running Late but it is afterall a podcast all about being vulnerable, so here's the unedited and unscripted rant I recorded all about the stress and anxiety that the 24/7 news cycle has been causing for me lately, especially because of c*vid-19.

Episode 3: The musings of an approvaholic
This episode of Running Late I discuss no longer going by the name Emily, and instead my real name -- which I teach you how to pronounce so you literally have no excuse on how to say it properly. I also discuss how toxic friends and family members have tried to dim my light in the past, and how there will always be people in your life who will attempt to bring you down -- and I share with you how I personally think the best way to not let them do that. I also talked about how you'll never truly earn the approval of some people and why being an approvaholic is a game that you'll never truly win. The overall theme of this episode is giving yourself the permission to do what you want without needing it from others. Posts talked about: My Instagram post discussing how I'll no longer be going by Emily. My Instagram post discussing being a people pleaser.

In this episode of Running Late with Emel Khan I sat down with a good friend of mine, Tram-Anh Le, to discuss our journey with entrepreneurship, navigating our early 20's, interviewing for corporate jobs (horror stories!), trusting our intuition + gut as well as not listening to the nay sayers.
