Heart Food Podcast | 027 | Dealing with rejection, taking action when you’re scared, anxiety, & building confidence

This solo episode is aaall about some of the tough stuff that ultimately makes us more resilient: dealing with rejection, taking action when you’re super scared & fearful, managing anxiety (something I’ve dealt with my whole life), and how to build confidence & faith in yourself. I also talk about what I learned & my biggest takeaways from Elevate18 which was SO GOOD, I’m still feeling the inspiration.

I’m basically talking to so many of my past selves in this episode. I have waited too long to do the things I’ve wanted to do, and I wish I wouldn’t have waited as long. I hope you don’t, either.
