I loved chatting with this week’s Beyond Influential guest—it’s easily one of my favorite interviews I’ve done for the show because it dives into the highly relevant topic of what it truly means to be an adult in today’s world. This is an important conversation as many millennials and more and more Gen Z-ers are currently trying to be an adult while simultaneously starting to raise the next generation of adults. 

New York Times bestselling author Julie Lythcott-Haims is a speaker, teacher, mentor, and activist who brings so much value and experience to the table and delivers insight after insight in this conversation. 

As the former Stanford dean of freshmen and undergraduate advising, Julie has encountered countless twenty and thirty somethings who feel they’re just playing the part of “adult,” while internally struggling with anxiety and stress.

She has written multiple books that I can highly recommend. Her first book, How to Raise an Adult, led to a popular Ted Talk on How to Raise Successful Kids Without Overparenting. And now her most recent book, Your Turn: How to Be an Adult, examines and answers the question, “What does it really mean to be an adult today?” and includes practical strategies for living a more authentic adult life. 

In Ep. 174, we cover:

  • Julie’s journey from lawyer to creating her own role at Stanford to acclaimed author
  • The overparenting phenomenon and its effects
  • Why many millennials don’t feel confident in their adulting skills
  • What it actually means to be an adult (and why it’s a process, not a checklist)
  • Why you need to stop “playing it safe” in order to live your most authentic life, and more!
