Episode 10: On: asking for what you want

Prince and Oprah

This week's episode is about asking for what you want - and i don't know about you, but it's certainly something i felt nervous about doing for a really long time.

So this show is especially for those of you who have felt you are undeserving of asking for what you want, or who haven't felt that it was an option for you to even consider putting that out there before OR, perhaps most commonly, for those of you who feel so uncomfortable asking for what you want that struggle through, doing it all, alone.

I've got you, and i'm sharing some ideas on how you can explore asking for help as well as some practices to wet your whistle!

Really hope you enjoy the show!
