About the Episode

Is there anything in your business that you dread doing? That makes you feel like: “Oh, my God, I do NOT want to do that! Like, seriously. Give me anything else to do.” If you have something like that which, let’s be honest, we all have, make sure to turn the volume up.

In this episode of the Shamelessly Ambitious Podcast, I’m talking about those times when things feel hard or like a burden and how it doesn’t have to be this way. I’ll walk you through some practices and questions to help you bring things into alignment – making them fun, simple, and easy.
As I said in the episode, “things do not have to be hard in order to be successful.” When things are done in alignment, they get to feel good, they get to feel easy, they get to be easy.

Thanks for listening. Thanks for being here. You’re exactly where you’re supposed to be.
