Do you struggle with finding your own identity? Have you ever been afraid to present your true self to the world? In today’s episode, I’m joined by Public Speaker, Podcast Host, and Published Author of “Me, My Selfie & Eye”, Janna Lopez! Janna is a self-proclaimed ‘word agent’ and offers her insights on the impact they have had on her, as well as how experiencing a huge shift in her mindset led her on the journey to becoming who she is today.
We talk about what brought Janna to begin the process of writing her book, the importance of showing up for yourself, as well as the dualities that are present within our own identities. Janna also shares her values of kindness and allowance and discusses how vital they are in becoming the most authentic versions of ourselves.
