Living in Alignment and Gaining Clarity w/ Katy Akester The Tried and Truth Podcast with Annica Fischer

    • Education

This week, my friend and executive life coach, Katy Akester, joins us on the podcast.  If you're feeling stuck, having trouble making decisions, living at the corner of imposter syndrome and self-protection, this one is for you! Katy shares her insights from her experience working (and meeting her husband) in improv, working in executive leadership for a global non-profit, and helping individuals gain clarity and greater self-awareness as an executive life coach. Katy also shares more about when seeking inspiration crosses over into shame and self judgement and the best place you can start when you're lacking confidence and feeling indecisive. It's jam packed with simple truths and lessons learned that'll meet you right where you are.
