    Difficulty Making Decisions? How to Trust Yourself More

    Difficulty Making Decisions? How to Trust Yourself More

    In episode 94 of The Grit Show, host Shawna Rodrigues dives deep into the intertwined relationship between self-trust and decision-making. Shawna explores how unclear and wavering self-trust can cloud our judgment and make decisions feel overwhelmingly difficult. Through her personal experiences and reflective insights, she discusses the subtle and often unnoticed factors that can erode our self-confidence and clarity. Shawna's candid conversation aims to shine a light on the internal barriers that prevent us from trusting our own decisions. This episode promises to guide listeners through a journey of self-discovery, encouraging them to evaluate and enhance their self-trust to improve their decision-making processes. Tune in to unpack this crucial aspect of personal growth and resilience on The Grit Show.
    Shawna Rodrigues left her award-winning career in the public sector in 2019 and after launching The Grit Show, soon learned the abysmal fact that women hosted only 27% of podcasts. This led to the founding of the Authentic Connections Podcast Network intent on raising that number by 10% in five years- 37 by 27. Because really, shouldn’t it be closer to 50%? She is the Director of Impact for the network, which offers full-service support for podcasting from mentoring to production. In September 2023 they are also launching the EPAC (Entrepreneurs and Podcasters Authentically Connected) community for those in early stages and wanting a place for weekly connection.
