Katherine Mackenzie-Smith

Today I’m talking with life coach for introverts Katherine Mackenzie Smith and we’re digging into some super cool stuff in this episode.

We’re talking about the someday syndrome, why you need to stop ‘what iffing’ yourself out of going after your dreams and why getting some skin in the game will stretch you outside your comfort zone in the best possible way.

We’re talking about working to your strengths, staying true to you and understanding and honouring your needs. Plus we’re talking money – why it’s ok to want it, how to value yourself and what you have to offer and how to get really comfortable asking for money in your business.

Katherine’s also shared some great tips to help you put yourself out there, promote your business without it feeling icky and what to do when you feel like you have to do it all.

There’s so much good stuff in today’s episode – we’re talking mindset, money and making your business your own. I hope you enjoy it.
