Episode Info

Episode Info:

Shelly Horton’s High School career guidance counsellor told her she was too opinionated and warned her to tone it down. Instead, she ignored him and turned it into a career!

Shelly is a journalist, TV presenter and producer and her opinions can be heard multiple times each week on Channel 9 in Australia.

Shelly is also not afraid of open and honest conversations about difficult topics. So I knew she’d be the perfect guest for Sparta Chicks Radio.

In this conversation, Shelly and I discuss:

- the early days of her career (which started in radio) including the very personal reason she didn’t explore a career in TV,

- the “soul-destroying” conversation with her boss about her weight that destroyed Shelly’s confidence and derailed her TV career for almost 2 years,

- the goal-setting course (and the exercise she learnt at that course) that fundamentally changed her life,

- the biggest myths around confidence,

- her experience with the Imposter Complex,

- how she deals with online trolling and public criticism, and

- her experience with Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome (PCOS) and how she manages it
