If you see someone jumping off a waterfall for fun, and they survived it, would you do it, too? Here’s where my friends and I are different. A lot of them LOVE ... just love things like this. Things like roller coaster rides. You see, every single time I go up a ride like that, I lose all senses below my chest. It’s like the only thing I can feel i…
 
Back when I had to go into a big grey office building and clock in every day, I remember something very specific about the end of the year. It wasn’t so much the merriment of the end of the year (though that does come into play). It was that left and right, I'd notice different kinds of people show up. Kind A: The ones that binge-consume simple ple…
 
I remember years ago, I had gone back to my hometown to visit my family. They wanted to throw this huge party and feast to celebrate. It had been a long time since I saw my grade school friends and people that I knew. Years, actually. So when the time came for everyone to hang out, I was a bit embarrassed. I was super jet-lagged. The time differenc…
 
One of my students came up to me once and asked me, “Thalia, how do you know when to go for the ask?” Whether this is about asking for a job, or asking for someone to buy what you have--this is probably as tricky as protocols on asking someone to move in with you or deciding how not to offend the neighbor who has been WAY too loud at night. It’s li…
 
So my kids used to go to sleep kicking and crying. They’d throw a hissy fit for over an hour, and I’d try everything in my might not to make them even more upset—often with little success. Of course, this meant that I wasn’t sleeping much either. Everyone hated it. Then one day as I was driving my newborn to the store to grab something, I dozed off…
 
You know what’s sometimes really weird about trying to find a solution to our problems? Is that we tend to hear the same things over and over again. I felt this way once when I was really looking for ways that I could get more things done without simply adding more things to my day. I realized that I wasn’t making time for important people in my li…
 
I don’t know if you’ve seen the video of a cougar who followed a hiker outdoors recently. But it’s been making the rounds among a lot of my friends who regularly spend time outside. If you haven’t seen it, it basically shows how a cougar decided to follow a hiker because he had accidentally encountered one of her cubs. She followed him for a good s…

I remember a time when I was in Las Vegas. I was putting on my PJs when my phone dings. It was a text from a respectable leader whom I’ve been wanting to meet. The text read: “If you’re free, I’m having a private happy hour. Let me know if you want in!” If you know me well, though, you know that I’m a total introvert. The only reason I was in Vegas…
 
If you’ve known me for a long time, you know that I used to be super shy, quiet, and would avoid conversations that I know I needed to have. I don’t know where this came from. It might’ve been the playground insults that happened whenever I tried to raise my hand and said something. Yeah, I was that little Asian kid who just stayed out of trouble m…
 
How many times have you heard people say to you, “work hard” or “hustle harder”? Plenty probably. But as your life changes, you might start to realize that those old rules are not something you can (or care to) keep up with. If you get to fast forward your life in 10-20 years, would you honestly want still be doing the grind? So then the question n…
 
Recently, I was given the opportunity to traverse through some river rapids. Before outdoor adventure became one of my favorite things to do, I thought there’s only ONE way to do it. As in, if you’re in the water, it’s just plain dangerous. I had NO idea that there were levels of danger, and the corresponding skill sets you must have. It’s like the…
 
Today, I want to talk about some favorite books of mine that have changed my life. I believe in investing in yourself in any way possible, including sitting down and reading from great minds in the world. Besides, that’s how the greats did it—by learning from other people as well. If you are hitting a ceiling and you feel a bit stuck, here are my t…
 
I remember a time when I was sitting in a meeting with three other guys in suits in a room with grey concrete walls. The meeting was going on and on and everyone was starting to get fidgety. The door opened and in came the top dog’s secretary, who said that so and so was there to meet him. Five minutes later, she came back in to give him another no…
 
I get a ton of questions lately about working from home and growing passive income. What’s great is that I see a whole range of questions, like: Thalia, how do you stay motivated? How do I keep my kids from driving me insane? How am I supposed to set goals when I don’t know what’s going to happen? How can I possibly get everything done at home? Wha…
 
If you’re an introvert like me, I’m sure you’ve been in situations, a party, a giant conference, or a get-together, when you look at your best friend, or brother and sister, or colleague and mouthed from across the room, “Help me get out of this conversation! Please”. Usually it has nothing to do with the people who were there. It was just that you…
 
This past year, I’ve made a point to try a bunch of new things. Because of COVID, my plans have changed from soaking in the stunning European alps to now … horseback riding. I got a new four-legged friend. A horse named Princess. I have to admit: before riding her, I was a mortified. I didn’t know what to expect. But after she galloped her way grac…
 
You know how people always say, “you can do whatever you want as long as it makes you happy”? Remember that? I used to wonder: what on earth does that mean anyway? I am happy whenever I eat ice cream. So can I just inhale chocolate ice cream for breakfast, lunch, and dinner and forget about that sad looking salad? Not quite, of course. But you keep…
 
This past week I got a random message from someone who claims to be a well-known public figure. At first, of course, I gave them the benefit of the doubt. Maybe it was them or someone from their team, just trying to stay in touch with the world. But things started to fall apart for them as it started to become obvious. Here’s how I knew that they w…
 
Recently I spent hours learning something new: fishing. When I saw a small little guy swim by. When I looked closer though, I realized that the little fish is actually more like a 30” trout! For someone who had close to ZERO fishing experience like me, I can tell that things were about to go DOWN! I can feel that I was about to catch a fish! Except…

Hi. I'm Thalia, CEO of Good Grow Great whose business expertise had been featured in Huffington Post, Business Insider, and iHeartRadio podcasts. I remember once, my international flight had been canceled. All the nearby hotels was completely booked. So I had to sleep overnight at the airport.
