Visibility is 🔑

The podcast I wish I would have had when I first started my journey!!!!
When I got started in the coaching industry visibility was terrifying. I had every fearful thought running through my mind- what if so and so thinks this about me? What if I don’t know what I’m talking about? What if someone doesn’t like what I have to say? Each one of those fears was like a bar on a cage that locked me in, creating internal angst and blocking me from standing in my power, owning my gifts and leading!!! This podcast is an absolute must for anyone looking to step out and be seen. Thank you Susan for this powerful podcast and message.
