Our Stories: A Candid Convo on Our Struggles with Inner Critics, Communication, and Confidence [TJJSEP:216]
5 days ago
SAVE YOUR SPOT AT TANNING, TACOS, + TRANSFORMATION The internet-driven day and age in which live is downright cray. We have the ability to connect with others all over the world in ways never before possible. But along with that accessibility, you have undoubtedly created hyperbolic stories of how amazing everyone else's life is. How your friend from elementary school must be super happy because all her Facebook posts are #blessed beyond #blessed. And it's likely that you may think the same about those you choose to learn from online. Namely, myself. My colleagues. Other Personal D. experts. In this week's episode, I bring on two of my dearest friends and colleagues to talk about our personal journeys. Andrea Owen from YourKickAssLife.com and Kira Sabin from LeagueofAdventurousSingles.com join me as we pull back the curtain on the ways in which we have changed over the last decade, what our biggest struggles were early on, and what we still grapple with today. We discuss how we contend with our inner critics (like, daily), how we've managed to finesse our communication skills, and what confidence really looks like in our lives. Have a listen to this super candid chat about what it really looks like to dig into the world of self-help over a long period of time and the lessons we've learned along the way. This pod explores: The major trigger Andrea had to deal with when she first started addressing her Inner Critic and how she turned her inner conversation into personal power Kira's experience with navigating a new relationship in her 40s and what she does to keep the communication with her BF on point How my personal confidence has changed and grown over the years and what you need to do to get there yourself MEET ME AT THE BEACH!

Refreshing, engaging and downright enjoyable ways to improve your life. Free! What more could you ask?
Amy and Mr Smith provide love and life advice you can really take to the bank. I tune in to every pod, even if I don't think it's directly relevant to me. Nine times out of ten, I learn something new, or have some new insight, that gives me a shove in the right direction. Plus, it's always so much fun. These guys love to laugh, and make their listeners laugh, too.
When it comes to the life coaching part, don't expect hand holding or baby steps. Amy tells it to you straight. Reeeeeeeally straight. But only in the way that your best friend would. That's what the pod is like - screwing up your courage to talk to two great friends about your inner worries, and then realising it's not so bad after all and heck, you can even do something about those worries.
Every episode is a joy to listen to. Trust The Joy Junkie.
