Changing lives

Valerie’s podcast has been so helpful in navigating my burnout! So many things were causing my burnout and her podcasts have pushed me and made me think about things in a new way. Im pushing myself in ways I never thought I would without guilt, shame or fear. Previously that’s how I lived my life, always from a place of guilt and fear, or living my life in “shoulds”. Now I am living much more authentically and I’m happier!

So healing.

Valerie is a healer. Her passion about teaching and coaching others through burnout to find the whole authentic personal identity is truly a joinery worth taking! I love the topics she explores, and I’m so grateful for her courage and vulnerability! I completely recommend this podcast to anyone seeking to learn life about their true self and help heal burnout!

Finding Happiness From Within Not Without

Really enjoying the latest series exploring burnout. Lots of external forces drive who we thing we should be. Family, Community, Religion, etc. If we base our happiness on these outside sources when one of them fails our happiness will fail too. Valerie has really explored all of these things in this series. It hits home on soo many levels for me.
