Are you leaking your power? Giving it up and reacting or overreacting?
In heated moments, with piles of situational stressors upon you, it’s one thing to try to react less and another to do it.
My guest is an executive coach for female leaders and has the anecdote for that. We’re diving into how you can step into her power: yours.
Retired? Stay with us. You run the home, you influence 85% of household decisions, you’re CEO of your life and health. And if you’ve worked a day in your life you know the hardest thing about any job is communication. So it is with any relationship. So whether you’re working, you worked at home, or you’re retired, you’ll find a juicy nugget for you, and for your daughters in this one.
