Why you should give these a listen!

Super motivational podcasts, episode 2 in particular was just what I needed to hear the other morning! I recently went self-employed and it can be oh so easy to feel isolated and doubt yourself. Coupled with this I'm facing my own demons with unhealthy indulgences in alcohol and food to fill the empty space I have with too much time on my hands whilst not feeling motivated to DO anything about it.
Petra unpicks the fears we all have (but maybe don't know how to express) in such a down to earth manner, when you listen to her talk you feel confident that she 'gets' the listener and isn't just talking at you.
If you want to kick start your positive mindset and need a little help getting back on track then give these a listen!
