Having worked with women from all over the world as a coach and mentor, I have come across 4 key mindset challenges that come up time and time again with the women I work with. These mindset challenges stop them from taking the next step, asking for the pay raise or promotion, and taking up space.

If you feel like you could be playing a bigger game in your career, whether that’s going for more in your career or refocusing on the goals that really matter to you and if you want to move forward with momentum, then this podcast episode is for you.

In this episode of The Aligned Achiever podcast I’m talking about the 4 mindset challenges that I’ve seen keep women playing small regardless of how experienced they are and the subconscious work you can do to overcome your mindset challenges and become the Untamed CEO of your own life.

The 5 Ways High Achiever’s Unintentionally Keep Themselves Stuck in Life + Work


Have you ever had a career goal?

Maybe it was to find another job at a different company, or to land a certain number of clients in your business.

With that clear goal, you’ve mapped out all the steps.

You’ve managed to execute on those steps, ticking off every item on your to-do list.

YET, you haven’t achieved that desired result….

Whether it be landing that new job or finding those paying clients coming to work with you.

Not all action is created equally.

In today’s episode of the podcast, we’re going to unpack why we can work towards a certain goal, taking all the “right” action and still find that things are not working.

Should You Persevere or Give Up?


I’m back in the studio recording this podcast after a beautiful summer holiday away with my family….

Upon my return I’ve been reflecting on how I want to show up differently and “better” in my life and work…

“Better” being a subjective term which has a personal meaning for this season of my life and work.

With the benefit of taking a pause from the usual daily and weekly routine, naturally I’ve been able to get some perspective on how I had been operating in less than ideal ways and quite honestly self sabotaging myself and making things waaaay harder than necessary.

The 3 Ways High Achiever’s Unintentionally Sabotage Themselves in Life and Work


A constant conversation that comes up time and time again in my work is the topic of money.

In my 9 years of coaching I’ve heard women say to me things like:

+ I want to switch careers but I don’t want to walk away from my stable paycheque
+ I want to take a break and focus on being home with my young kids but + I’m not sure if it’s smart to miss out on my career and earning potential this far into my career
+ I just found out my colleague who’s way less qualified and experienced than me is earning more than me. I’m angry but I’m also scared to ask for more.
+ I know I’m charging too little for my work but I’m worried about raising my rates and “losing” clients….

For too long women have been on the back foot when it comes to money, earning and creating “successful” businesses and careers.

Why We Need To Talk About Women, Work and Money


I believe that when you’re deeply connected and trust your unique gifts, talents, skills and desires you can you then build out the most meaningful and soulful success that you’re deeply desiring.

It’s not about starting a business, or climbing the ladder. It’s about getting clear on YOU and executing on a STRATEGY that feels exciting to YOU as you define success.

Which brings me to today’s podcast….where we’ll be exploring how to get clear on your version of soulful success i.e. meaningful work.

And beyond that whether the path there is about energetics or strategy.

If you’re desiring to create a career that lights YOU up from within and allows you to get paid being you, then this episode is for you.

Is The Key To Soulful Success In Your Work About Energetics or Strategy?


The things that hold us back in our life, work and relationships…often live in our shadows.

They’re things we don’t want to admit, let alone see or give space to explore.

Getting unstuck requires vulnerability and intimacy to meet ALL the parts of you…your strengths and talents as well as the aspects of you that aren’t so perfect or polished.
