Courage. We all could use a little more of it, but not having it might be holding us back from doing the thing that will help us get it! Enter: Kate Swoboda and her new book The Courage Habit (which I'm pretty sure was written for us!).

In her new book and in this conversation, Kate helps unpack the different habits associated with courage and how we can step past our fear to get out into the world and follow through on all those things we *say* we want to do!

Kate also gives permission to let go of working so hard and needing to be everything to everyone (amen and hallelujah!) and offers tips for how to start stepping out of your old stories into the things that are going to make you the most proud of yourself. 

This conversation and this work is so important. Enjoy!

Today I'm talking about how to deal with navigating change, and this episode is auto-biographical as I'm right in the midst of making some huge changes around my home life (hello, let's move states!). 

I'll take you through the steps I'm using right now as I gingerly tread through this shift and try to stay sane in the process. 

Want the cliff notes? Here are my 8 steps:

1. Remember why you want it. 
2. Remember that you want it.
3. Let go of having answers that will appease other people's anxieties.
4. But create external accountability if that helps. 
5. Self-care like whoa.
6. Sleep.
7. Say when it's hard. 
8. Remember that you'll be so grateful for this experience someday. 

Change is important, and it's hard. And we're all in it together.

+ Why it's okay to want more for your life and creative work.
+ How you can choose confidence and where to find it.
+ ...and what to do if you aren't quite ready to make a shift.

I was so excited this week to chat with Emilie Wapnick of Puttylike for this week's episode of Raise Your Hand Say Yes. We talked all about being what Emilie likes to call a “Multipotentialite”.

We talked about how to get the right kind of support for your varied interests, and different ways to think about multi-passionatism. We also talked about incorporating your many interests into being an entrepreneur (and how sometimes it's okay not to!).
