    Let's Talk Imposter Syndrome

    Let's Talk Imposter Syndrome

    In this week’s podcast, I delve into the hot topic of imposter syndrome, unpacking the doubts we have about our self-worth and our fears of being exposed as frauds, despite evidence of success. 
    Join me as I discuss how the brain's limbic system contributes to these feelings by perpetuating a fight-or-flight response and feelings of insufficiency—remnants of our evolutionary past. I also look at how cultural pressures to constantly achieve and be productive exacerbate these feelings, leading to striving for overachievement and perfectionism as well as burnout and a disconnection from our true potential. 
    If you’re working on overcoming imposter syndrome, I hope you’ll join me for the first of this two-part episode!

    Break Free from the Ordinary

    I recently coached an entrepreneur client who was struggling with post-launch burnout. His lack of energy and inspiration highlights the necessity of self-care and maintaining a full "tank" of energy throughout the often intense creative process. 
    In this week’s episode The Courage to Live a Big Life, I share some ideas with you on how you can give yourself buffer time before, during, and after projects by spending time refueling yourself. Remember, nothing is automatic when you're starting something new and each step requires enormous energy and focus.
