You Are Your Best Investment
Choosing to invest in ourselves is never a simple process for us recovering perfectionists and people pleasers – even though investments in self and self-care don’t have to involve spending any money.
Investing in ourselves can often feel selfish and trigger discomfort, fear, and scarcity due, in part, to the relevant cultural and familial messages we’ve internalized over time.
Nonetheless, it is essential to invest in ourselves, and there is a way to know when it’s time to do so.
Pop in your earbuds now to find out how to invest in yourself without all the angst.

Listening to this podcast makes me feel like a weight is off of my shoulders. I always leave feeling genuinely motivated and inspired rather than pressured to do more. Love how the meld humor and vulnerability together to make it relatable and honest.
Full of fun, play, wisdom, and compassion
I have been listening to this podcast weekly for over a year. I never miss an episode and look forward to it every Monday! As a recovering perfectionist myself, this podcast truly speaks to me. I love how no matter what the topic, it offers powerful (and empowering!!) guidance on how to get curious about my thoughts and behaviors (even the ones I despise), grow and change in service of my highest aspirations, and cultivate compassion for myself and others. This podcast is my therapy and my joy because Jenna and Ashley are bright, sharp, playful souks. They have THE BEST sense of humor, infusing this podcast with huge amounts of laughter (and laughter is the best medicine). I am eternally grateful for the wisdom these two women share with the world every week.
Realistic Empowerment ✨
These 2 women! I feel like we are sitting around drinking wine - or coffee or lemonade ‘cause we don’t judge - and they are sharing the best sista-friend support to help me live just a little better each day. Screw you perfectionism!!!! Ash & Jenna are here to help us all shine our lights brighter!!! Middle fingers up!! 🖕🌟🌈🌻❤️
