When was the last time you had a difficult conversation? Did you feel confident in the way you expressed yourself?
When was the last time you shared your views on something without second-guessing yourself or worrying about what someone else thought?
When was the last time you spoke up in a meeting, set a clear boundary with someone, or asserted yourself in an uncomfortable situation?
Many women struggle with using their voice. Some research suggests that women apologize when we really should be direct because we worry about coming off as rude, or hurting someone's feelings. According to a study in the journal of Psychological Science, women have a much lower threshold for what constitutes offensive behavior. In turn, this causes us to apologize more - even when we should be assertive.
In this short but powerful episode, I’m going to share some tips on how to get crystal clear about who you are, what’s important to you, and how to put it all out there without the fear and without the guilt.

I feel more productive, creative, and inspired. And to be honest it has saved my sanity over the past few months.

Today I'm bringing you an encore episode that I feel really strongly about sharing again. It's my conversation with my friend and peer, Amanda Frances. Amanda is my most-frequent guest, I've never had anyone on the show 3 times before, so this is a big deal. She is a self-made multi-millionaire, thought leader, business coach, self-proclaimed "money queen" - and most importantly, a good friend of mine who I respect and admire very much.
I decided to share this episode again because I feel like now more than ever, we are in a time where people are looking at their lives — and at whether their relationship with money and the dynamics at play in their finances do or don’t serve them, feel good to them, or work for them.
