    Why I Burned Out in 2022 & How I Am Going to Fix It

    Why I Burned Out in 2022 & How I Am Going to Fix It

    Get ready for a game changing episode of IMPACT! You’ve certainly never heard an episode like this before. 
    This is for two reasons. 
    One, because host Dr. Meghan Walker drops powerful truths about entrepreneurship and reflects on her own experience with burnout at the end of 2022. Meghan loves her work and this feeling of burn out was not a result of work overload. It was actually the result of client relations that had failed to honor their sacred contract. After some self reflection, Meghan realized she was stuck in self created resentment because she failed to set and uphold her own boundaries. She was taking ownership of others' emotional issues which prevented them from following through on their agreed upon financial responsibilities. By allowing others to negate their own commitments, she denied them and herself the opportunity to grow. 
    A much needed break over Christmas and the New Year resulted in the perfect time to recognize that leading to the next level meant setting clear boundaries and by holding people accountable to their commitments she was elevating how they operate in the world of business. 
    And two, because Meghan sets the stage for the trajectory of the podcast in 2023. And it’s massive. It’s exciting. And it is definitely going to lead to major IMPACT. 
    Meghan has committed to focusing on the concept of a "worth ethic" - the activities, commitments, and decisions that elevate our value as leaders and help us avoid burnout. That expands our capacity for contribution, for vision and where we can go next. And so this year, the content of the IMPACT podcast is going to focus exactly on this! 
    Meghan will pursue ideas that take us to the fringe, explore concepts that might make you feel uncomfortable and discuss topics that in an instant are going to shed from you, the stories and the limiting beliefs that have been holding you back.
    Follow along with the IMPACT podcast and you can expect to master your worth ethic and thrive as a leader in 2023!

    MEMORABLE QUOTES
    “Resentment, for me, was always accompanied by having poor boundaries in a particular area. When I become resentful of someone or a situation it is usually because I was not clear in articulating or because I didn't know what my boundaries were at any given moment.”

    “I was witnessing, in real time, how I was enabling other people to sabotage their own commitments, with respect  to money, and I too was acting out a pattern that I had become familiar with in my own life.” 
    Dr. Meghan Walker
    “I was just sort of in denial. I was in denial of acknowledging it. I was in denial of how I was gonna have to address it. And then even as I turned on my mic to record this, I was in denial of having to admit it to my listeners.”

    This Sucks, Now What? with Dr. Neeta Bhushan

    This Sucks, Now What? with Dr. Neeta Bhushan

    Join host Dr. Meghan Walker on this week's episode of IMPACT as she sits down with Dr. Neeta Bhushan, a world-renowned speaker on grit and resilience, co-founder of the Dharma Coaching Institute and co-founder of Global Grit Institute, a mental-health  training platform for leaders. Together, they explore the importance of facing our negative emotions head-on, instead of hiding them away as we strive for success. 
     
    As high-achievers, we often want to hide our emotions and push them away as we strive for the next level of success. However, this is an unhealthy way to deal with negative emotions, and it can ultimately take a toll on our psyche, well-being, and even our sense of self-respect and self-worth. 
     
    In this powerful and inspiring conversation, Dr. Bhushan provides valuable strategies for dealing with negative emotions and overcoming challenges. She explains that it's important to feel the emotions, identify the limiting beliefs and then reframe the stories in our heads to learn from our mistakes, setbacks, and failures. By facing our negative emotions head-on, we can turn them into opportunities for growth and cultivate the mindset of a resilient person.
     
    Dr. Bhushan also shares her personal journey and the insights she gained from her own experiences, including the lessons she learned from writing her latest book, "That Sucked, Now What?".

    Mastering Money - Tools for Reshaping Your Relationship with Money is 2023

    Mastering Money - Tools for Reshaping Your Relationship with Money is 2023

    Unleash your inner power and with host Meghan Walker as she dives into the world of female leadership, financial health, and wealth on this week's episode of IMPACT! Meghan sits down with three accomplished women: Mary Shores, Adele Tevlin, and April Stroink who share their insights on how to embrace your feminine energy, overcome confidence gaps, and cultivate self-love to achieve financial and personal success. 
    As women leaders, it's essential for us to embrace our feminine energy, not just our masculine energy. This means leading from a place of empowerment using collaboration, empathy, and compassion. This can be difficult to do when we're surrounded by men in similar roles, but cultivating self-love and a sense of abundance is crucial when it comes to our ability to achieve our goals.
    The discussion also touches on the importance of keeping emotion out of money decisions and realizing that health and wealth go hand in hand. Financial health is one of the pillars of our overall health, and when we're successful financially and have a healthy relationship with money, we're able to serve people in our communities and have a greater impact.
    This week's episode of IMPACT is a must-listen for any woman looking to improve her leadership skills, achieve financial success, and build a healthy mindset. Don't miss out on this valuable conversation and tune in now to benefit from the wisdom and experiences of these powerhouse leaders.

    “For women in leadership, I sometimes feel like I'm walking the plank and I'm alone. It’s my own limiting beliefs.”
    Dr. Meghan Walker
     
    “I believe in the power of empathy and compassion in order to create an ultimate rapport and connection with your patients.”

    “The biggest mistake that I see business owners make is chasing the top line and really getting away from the core of their business.”
    April Stroink
     
    “Part of being a female leader is about balance. When you self care, mentally, emotionally, and physically you actually expand your capacity for all the pieces. That is why it is a limiting belief, ladies, that you don’t have time for yourself. The secret to being able to do more is actually to do more for yourself.” 
    Dr. Meghan Walker
     
    “There's a part of your brain that when you visualize, it's actually using the same neural networks as if you are actually practicing it. So visualization is key.

    Stop Waiting For Permission And Step Into Your State Of Self-Authorization

    Stop Waiting For Permission And Step Into Your State Of Self-Authorization

    This week’s episode of IMPACT is one for the books! It combines interviews with two of Meghan Walker’s previous guests whose insight and knowledge surrounding mindset and self-authorization is astounding. 
     
    Dr. Shyamala Kiru, a registered psychotherapist and family and couple therapist works in particular with high-performing, high achieving women and mothers who are juggling multiple roles and identities. She discusses with Meghan that to navigate our relationships and improve our quality of life we must master our ability to communicate assertively. When each person in a relationship is responsive and not reactive, where they can make choices from an informed and self-regulated place, the relationship will thrive. When we access our emotional intelligence we have the capacity for incredible impact. 
     
    David Bayer, a motivational coach, digital entrepreneur and author of MindHack.com is one of the emerging thought leaders in the evolution of mindset. He believes that using your mind to rewire and reorganize the brain is the linchpin of human evolution. There are two states of being – powerful and primal. Powerful states include happiness, joy, calm and curiosity. Stress, anxiety, overwhelm and fear being primal states. If we give ourselves permission to feel good enough, then we exist in the powerful state. The fears diminish and happiness and abundance rule, giving us the opportunity to have a greater impact in the world. Live in your joy, calm and peace to have that powerful living experience.
     
    We need to identify the things we can control and the things we can’t, and take radical responsibility for our own happiness and mindset. The journey is about knowing yourself at a deeper level and removing the resistance that’s there in the form of thinking so that you can decide to do something new moving forward. 
     
    Appropriately enough, what each conversation boils down to is that self-authorization and a healthy mindset leave room for impact. If you’re ready to see the lies in the untruth that you've been telling yourself then this is an episode you cannot afford to miss. 
     
    Tune in now and get ready to take responsibility for your mindset and happiness!

    Sexuality is an integral part of our lives. It fuels our bodies, businesses, and creativity. Susan Bratton, an expert on how to reclaim our relationship with out own sexuality, emphasizes the importance of slowing down and planning dates for lovemaking and erotic play in order to achieve sexual fulfillment, especially as we age and may experience challenges like vaginal lubrication issues, loss of sensation, and incontinence. Bratton believes that by embracing and prioritizing our sexuality, we can tap into a deeper level of passion, creativity and focus.
     
    Renowned author, Katrina Bos, reminds us that the only thing of value we have is time, and not to waste it. She advises trusting in a greater consciousness and not letting our brains make all the decisions, and encourages finding a spiritual foundation and redefining one's life according to one's own truth. Bos believes that by embracing our inner wisdom and authenticity, we can create a more harmonious and radiant life, not just for ourselves, but for those around us.

    Mastering Your Mindset and Emotions

    Mastering Your Mindset and Emotions

    Are you tired of feeling held back by negative emotions and limiting beliefs? It's time to take control of your mindset and emotions and live a life you love!This week on IMPACT, we've got just the guests to help you do that! Meghan Walker sits down with the dynamic duo of Dr. Joan Rosenberg and Susan Hobson.
    Dr. Rosenberg is a world-renowned psychologist, consultant, and media expert who knows a thing or two about achieving a life you love. Her book, 90 Seconds to a Life You Love, is a must-read for anyone looking to improve their mental wellbeing. And Susan Hobson? She's a neuro-linguistic programming coach who works with top executives, athletes, and other high achievers to help them break through their mental barriers.
    Confidence is crucial when it comes to building a strong foundation of self and getting past imposter syndrome. But true confidence isn't about trying to be perfect or competing with others. It's about knowing your own limits, showing up, and doing the best you can at any age and stage of life. It's about knowing your worth and the value you bring to the table.
    So how do you build confidence? By cultivating self-awareness, not avoidance. When you're faced with negative emotions, it's important to name them and allow them to pass. Most feelings only last 90 seconds, so don't let them hold you back. And when you lean into your feelings, you can gain valuable insights and use them to make better decisions or take action.
    But it's not just about managing your emotions. You also need to examine the root of your limiting beliefs and identify where critical self-talk is coming from. By confronting these beliefs and challenging them, you can navigate around them and open yourself up to new possibilities.
    A change in thinking can have a big impact, and self-awareness and clarity on your values are key to being true to yourself and performing at your best. So don't miss this episode of Impact with Dr. Joan Rosenberg and Susan Hobson – start mastering your mindset and emotions today!

SO Good.

Meghan is a powerhouse of ideas around mindset, money, leadership, and all things that elevate us to the next level. IMPACT is one of my faves ❤️

megburtontudman ,

LOVE this!!

I just discovered Impact and absolutely love Meghan’s authentic and empowering approach to supporting women seeking impact and creating a life on their terms! I listened to the recent conversation with Dr. Sherry Walling and it was a thoughtful reminder that we can experience joy as well as grief. Her learned explanation that grief is a “normal, important part of love and human relationship” spoke directly to my heart. Highly recommend!
