    Melanie Curtis: Advice for overcoming fear and why she took to leap to life coaching

    Investment Banking? Skydiving? The only thing they seem to have in common is- risk, something Melanie Curtis, Executive Director of the Women's Skydiving Network, co-author of three books, and co-host of Trust the Journey podcast, has learned to embrace with grace. Risk is terrifying. Like many of us, Melanie faced fears about her ability to support herself by doing the thing she loves. It was not until she quit her job and took the leap into full-time diving that she discovered her potential as a prominent skydiver and leader in the community. How does she do it? In today's episode, Melanie *dives* into how she overcame impostor syndrome, how she heals herself, and how she has carved out a career path in the midst of fear. Listen in to hear how you can harness the power of your purpose and take some positive risks!

    Quotes We Keep In Mind:
    "It [Skydiving] absolutely has gotten easier. It's not that the fear or the anxiety is gone, totally. But it absolutely gets easier with iteration."

    "I've continued to be relentless on anything that I want to do."

    "So when I jumped, and I landed, and I was not dead, right? It was like my brain was fundamentally altered, in the sense that not all you can do anything, but anything that I'm afraid of, or I think I can't do, I have to at least question whether that's true or not."

    Quotes We Keep In Mind
    "Fishsticks!"

    "Everybody asks lots of stupid questions. So who cares? I had teachers who would never allow me to say, this might be a stupid question. That's what gave me the fearlessness-- to always put myself out there."

    "I thought it was just absolutely off the wall crazy to go from, from nonprofit to finance... but okay, I'll give it a shot. And so that's how I ended up in finance."

    "How can I be useful here? Both with my time and my capital."

    Quotes We Keep In Mind
    “I stopped using the word empowerment, a while ago, because it reminds me of things like when people talk about giving voice to the voiceless. No one is voiceless right? And what we need to be doing is removing the things that are silencing them.”

    “My culture is a big part of where my power is.”

    “You can fall into a place of complacency and just be like well that's just how it's always been. That's hopelessness at work and that's in some ways the culture that keeps people marginalized.”
