“You really have to step into betting on yourself, really trusting yourself, believing in yourself, which as you know takes so much of our own inner work”

⬆️ Just ONE of the incredible pieces of wisdom that @jenmdiaz shared in her episode on Behind the Business Podcast!!

Catching glimpses of the sun setting over the horizon, being present enough to watch the birds run across the sand and really FEEL the sand beneath my toes are things that you can only do when you’re really present. Not just thinking about the running to-do list in your head.

Working with Jen in 2021 was one of the greatest blessings in my life & business because she brought me back to what it means to really LIVE! To live out your best self in your life and business every single day.

To fall back in love with the process & never let the magic get old.

To make sure that your work is 100% aligned with who you truly are at your core -after unlearning and letting go of what is no longer serving your best self.

To know Jen and to be in her presence is to become a better person today AND to be inspired to keep growing into the best version of yourself every day ✨

I can’t wait for you guys to hear this episode, it’s truly a breath of fresh air. It’s an episode that I know I’ll keep coming back to no matter where I am in life and business.

If you’re looking to shift your mindset this year to tackle dreams you’ve had on your heart & to feel truly alive and inspired again in business & life, tune into this episode! 💕

Memorable Moments & Quotes from today’s episode:

09:19 “You really have to step into betting on yourself, really trusting yourself, believing in yourself, which as you know takes so much of our own inner work”

12:06 “As a coach my belief is greater than your doubt as a client – that you believe in your client so much that it is bigger than any self doubt or fear that they can have, so they can borrow that. Sometimes we have to borrow someone else’s belief in us before we fully believe in ourselves.”

12:26 “Community is so important for us to have, especially if we want to be successful and healthy long term”

Be sure to tune in to the full episode to hear more about mindset work, female entrepreneurship, and overcoming limiting beliefs.
