Trusting Yourself
We hear that word intuition and we think it’s woo woo, but the truth is: we all have intuition. We all have the ability to tap into our own deep inner knowing and choose to trust ourselves instead of looking for validation externally. Many people dismiss that quiet voice in their heads and dismiss it because it’s not “logical” even though we hear successful leaders and CEOs talk about gut feelings or trusting their instincts. In today’s episode Tanya brings in Emily Aarons to co-host the show and discuss how we can tap into our intuition with more confidence and ease.   FOR SHOW NOTES & MORE, GO TO:

Who Are You Really Fighting?
How often do you use the word “should” when thinking about your day? I should be doing this or I should stop doing that. Who decided what you should or should not do? Often we don’t ask that question - we just assume that we should just live up to expectations without wondering who set those expectations in the first place. Today’s episode will help you question the rule makers (also known as the patriarchy) and live life by rules of your own making. Reclaiming your power starts by understanding who we are really fighting.   FOR SHOW NOTES AND MORE, GO TO:
