Episode 18: Emotional Power – Holding More So You Can Have More

Filed in All Episodes, Emotional Intelligence — February 8, 2022

About the Episode:

Today we’re talking about emotional power and how much control YOU have over your emotional power.

In episode 18 of the Shamelessly Ambitious podcast, I’m bringing you a real hot conversation, and one that I believe needs to be had more often. This conversation is about duality. It’s about the concept of holding ALL of your emotions, not just the good ones.

Duality is the capacity to hold it all. It is the capacity to hold the excitement, the gratitude, and the joy, AND at the same time the grief, the overwhelm, and the fear, and to recognize that these emotions can coexist. Duality is all about having the self-compassion to know that it’s okay to feel BOTH. 

We attract who we are, how we’re showing up, and what we’re experiencing into our lives. So tune in to find out how to hold more so you can have more. Thanks for being here!

Topics Discussed:

  • The negative thoughts and beliefs that make us lose control of our emotional power
  • What we attract and why we attract those things
  • Your emotional power and self-compassion
  • Why I’ve been avoiding parenting-coaching for so long
  • The shame I carried for not being able to figure it all out by myself
  • How your emotions regarding other areas of your life are impacting your business
  • The things I’ve been learning and doing to be able to stand in my emotional power
  • Taking radical responsibility and asking yourself questions that will lead you to aligned action

I am the definition of duality—I swear like a sailor and break rules like it’s my job, but I also hold incredible space for my clients and work my ass off to help them achieve the success they’re after (but faster).

My background in counseling and my experience founding three multi-6-figure businesses gives me a unique perspective on what it means to show up and serve as an ethical and successful CEO. Leaning on my experiences, along with the experiences of the hundreds of women I’ve been honored to work with, I offer founders a psych-backed and human-first approach to scaling their legacies—both in and out of the office. 

I don’t believe in a one-size-fits-all approach to anything, but especially business. Because at the foundation of any profitable, sustainable, ethically sound business is one thing: humans being humans. And to do anything without first considering the human behind the action (i.e., with intention and vulnerability) is to remove our most powerful predictor of success—ourselves.

Around here, you’ll find a personalized and multidimensional client experience paired with a few tastefully dropped fucks. You’ll also find a new way of being in business that’s sustainable, ethical, and built around your life (not the other way around).
