#113 - The gift of mentorship

17 mins | Dec 10, 2021

Today's episode from 10th December 2021. We end the week discussing two geniuses. Stephen Sondheim and Virgil Abloh were different ages when they died, in different industries and had vastly different backgrounds, but the music composer and fashion designer both shared one key quality - generosity. We explore the role and gift of the mentor in our first piece. Then later, the holiday season can come with grief, burnout and more so we've got an expert guide on how to cope. Virgil Abloh and Stephen Sondheim were both exceptional, in personality and achievement, in their respective creative industries. For The Financial Times, Jo Ellison discusses their achievements and explores how they pushed boundaries and reminds us of the importance of nurturing the upcoming generation. Take back the joy in your festivities. 2021 has allowed for far-flung family and friends to be reunited for the holidays, but this festivity can also be fraught with emotional minefields. In this instalment of Happier Holidays from The Lily, Soo Youn guides you through navigating the mental, financial and interpersonal problems the winter holiday season can bring. Wake up with Curio is a different kind of morning show that gives you the context behind the news and gets you motivated for the day ahead, every Monday - Friday.
