Today I’m talking with Coach, Writer and Speaker Kylie Aloi, who helps women tune out the noise and tune into themselves.

We’re talking about ditching the shoulds in life, creating space for creativity, the perception of success and why we often teach what we need to learn.

There’s also a bit of a Sarah rant about the crappy courses and dodgy dealers who promise the world and don’t deliver.  Plus we talk about why you don’t need a degree to rock your goals, giving yourself permission to get started, and we have a really honest discussion about depression, anxiety and mental health and why it doesn’t have to define you or hold you back.

So pour yourself a cuppa, get comfy and come and join the conversation.

Kindness makes the world go round, so if listening to Rock Your Goals has made your ears happy, I’d be so grateful if you’d consider taking approximately one-tenth of the time it takes to drink your morning latte (or lemon water) to leave a short review. Bonus brownie points for saying nice things! It’s easy peasy, promise: all you need to do is type a sentence or two on your favourite podcast player (and sit back to soak up the good vibes I’ll be sending your way as a thank you).
