Even after finding the courage to up their game and step fully onto their path of power, women often have trouble clarifying their true value, asking for what they deserve, and saying no to opportunities that don’t meet their needs. When you’ve been taught all your life to think and play small, how do you make the shift to living the full and fulfilling life you’re meant to live?
My guest Dr. Meg Myers Morgan is a keynote speaker and executive coach who helps her clients develop their leadership skills and achieve clarity in times of overwhelm and change. She’s also an incredibly gifted writer and the author of Everything is Negotiable, a bestseller based on her notable TEDx Talk.
In this conversation, we discuss the power of standing still, why a scarcity mindset will hold you back from playing big, and how to tap into your inner “lighthouse” (don’t worry, we get into it!)
