Who you think you are – is NOT really who you are.

Each day, we wear so many different hats, as a mother/father, entrepreneur, writer, brother/sister, teacher, friend, whatever that looks like for you.

We have all these roles that we have to play, and on top of that, we’re constantly inundated with job responsibilities, errands, tasks, and social media stuff. 

We are so busy that we forget to take a step back, listen, and just – breathe.

My guest today is Jeff Goins. Jeff is a friend, a writer, a speaker, and an entrepreneur. He is the best selling author of five books, including The Art of Work and Real Artists Don’t Starve. 

His award-winning blog goinswriter.com is visited by millions of people every year. Through his online courses, events, and coaching programs, Jeff has helped thousands of writers succeed every single year. 

Get ready for this powerful conversation about chasing what scares you, not shrinking back in the face of crisis, and seeking your true self. 

In this episode, you will hear:

  • Reacting vs. responding
  • The power of a pause
  • Seeing people as projections of you
  • How to respond in times of crisis
  • Finding grace in saying sorry
  • What “getting into your body” means
  • The authenticity conversation: letting go of the person you think you are
  • You don’t have a soul – you are a soul!
