Balancing Your Big Energy into Focused Action

SUBSCRIBE   Apple Podcasts | Spotify | Amazon Music | Stitcher

Do you have that rock solid someone who supports you through hard emotional decisions or when you’re putting big meaningful work out into the world? In this episode of the Lead with Love podcast, you’ll learn one of my secret weapons for birthing big ideas without exhaustion, overwhelm or burnout.

In this conversation, I get cozy with my dear friend and personal life coach of over 5 years Rebecca McLoughlin.

Rebecca helps ambitious women hone and balance their “big energy” into focused action and feminine flow. As a Certified Life Coach with a Master’s in Counseling Psychology, Rebecca is able to support clients in doing the deep inner work needed to gain insight and free themselves from patterns of procrastination, self sabotage and burn out.

Rebecca’s been in my corner both personally and professionally for over 5 years. She was a big catalyst of support in 2016 when I was exiting my company Simple Green Smoothies. She’s helped me move forward with numerous big ideas, including my published book coming out in 2022.

In this episode, we talk about the behind the scenes process of how Rebecca has supported me in bringing my book forward as I bring it to the finish line.

“Big energy women need a unique flow in their life and in their businesses.”
