Ep074: Getting clear on what you don’t want.

May 21, 2020

The pandemic is giving us a chance to reflect on what's been working and what's not working in our lives and how we live. We're questioning our decisions, our choices and we're trying to figure out what's the next step - sometimes that can be challenging. The one thing we can often be clear on however, is what we don't like and in this episode I outline an exercise you can do to gain some insight to move forward.

Ep070: 5 ways to own your awesome

April 23, 2020

Can you build your confidence?

A lot of people reflexively say “No – you’re either confident or you’re not.” But in my experience, that’s simply not true.

Confidence is a skill, and like any other skill, you can master over time and even the most confident people can struggle with feeling confident at times. 

This episode I’m sharing five easy ways to help you tap into your own confidence and provide a little inspiration for you.
