Jul 6, 2022

“Courage starts with showing up and letting ourselves be seen.” 
Brene´ Brown

Midlife is not a crisis. It’s a powerful time of awakening and healing so you can live your truth and create a life that you love.

However, finding the courage and confidence to step into your brilliance and take back your power isn’t easy and is scary. It requires listening to your heart, stepping outside your comfort zone and doing what scares you.

Today’s show is going to inspire you and help you boost your courage and confidence. You’ll meet two amazing women who are speaking up and changing the status quo. They will be sharing incredible stories of triumph.

You’ll learn:

  • How you can stand up for what you believe even if you’re terrified to do so.
  • What it’s like being a woman in a male dominated environment
  • How to heal from sexual abuse
  • The keys to midlife reinvention
  • Why vulnerability is an essential trait for leaders
  • How to let go of pain and amplify positivity

It’s going to be a powerful show!
