Hey, Friend! I'm glad that you've taken a moment to drop in. I am Dr. Eve Hudson and a very proud native of Charlotte, North Carolina. As the oldest of three reared by a single mother in a low-socioeconomic household, I went on to become a first-generation college student and eventually earned a Ph.D. at the age of 28.
After years of professional service in higher education, I "took the leap" and began my social entrepreneurial journey. Blending my academic, professional, and personal experiences, The Purpose Professor Limited Liability Company was born. Nine percent of net profits go toward helping first-generation college students and professionals who are experiencing hardship, pursuing higher education, and endeavoring to be entrepreneurs.
Traveling the world to transform communities through keynotes, workshops, and panels is what I love most. Documenting a part of my life's journey with my first self-published book 1865 (sold over1,000 copies in its first year). In building community for my fellow first-gens, The First-Gen Lounge came to be--this is a space (podcast) where we, first-generation college graduates, come together to talk candidly about navigating life. In less than a year, the show quickly soared past 13k downloads and reached over 27 countries! As the creator of The 9 Lab, I'm leading courses in personal development and entrepreneurship. In all of these things, it's my mission to inspire, empower, and uplift first-gens.
Interesting side note: I've lost OVER 120 lbs not once, but... TWICE! Anywho... I'm always happy to meet new people. I'd love for us to connect and collaborate, so don't hesitate to contact me directly through email (firstname.lastname@example.org) or over the phone (980.229.1387). Let's get connected via LinkedIn and Instagram!
