Doubts creep in, making us question if we're good enough to stand out and be proud of what we've achieved. But finding what we're truly good at is vital and possible. Embracing what we're great at is about celebrating our unique selves.
     
    Today, I’m thrilled to have business mentor Angie Colee on the show. Angie says her big life mission is: “I don't want a single creator, creative entrepreneur, or creative service provider to go to their grave thinking they're not enough, or will never figure this business thing out.”

    From SAHM to Burlesque Dancer with Eva D'Luscious

    From SAHM to Burlesque Dancer with Eva D'Luscious

    Going on the journey to find your true authentic self is a deeply personal and unique experience. It is marked by self-reflection and experimentation. But this journey is often not easy. Still, embracing the path of discovery leads to the ultimate reward of authenticity and the empowering confidence that comes with truly knowing who you are.
     
    Meet Eva, a stay-at-home-mom turned burlesque dancer who, in the process, has also become an inspiration for women seeking to reclaim their sense of self and joy. Eva's journey into the world of burlesque began after motherhood, a time when she felt a disconnect from her personal identity and sought a path back to her own true self. With a background in dance and a natural comfort with her body, Eva found in burlesque not only an artistic outlet but also a tool for self-empowerment and healing.
