Ep 1. Stop Playing Small

stop playing small

Playing small robs us of our power. It stops us showing up as the person we really are.

In this episode we explore what all the ways playing small shows up in our lives, and how it robs us of our power. I’ll reveal how to stand in your power, in order to create the life and career you dream of.

My intention for this podcast is to support you, as a woman in a man’s world, to be confident and empowered so you can do impactful and fulfilling work that lights you up.

You deserve more and I want to make sure you can go out and make it happen.

What does a big life look like for you?

I invite you to look at your career and think about what you truly want.

What would you do if anything was possible?

Stop hiding and instead, allow yourself to create a new concept of what is possible with your life and your career. I’ll lead you in a shift of perception that allows you to approach your aspirations from a place of possibility and curiosity.

You are capable and deserving of the career you aspire to. It is time to step up and stop playing small. The world needs your unique perspective and skills. You have got this, and I am here cheering you on.
