S2: Ep 1- WHO ARE YOU, REALLY?
How would you define yourself?
What masks have you been wearing?
And how far away are you from your authentic self?
As Brene Brown says, “Authenticity is the daily practice of letting go of who we think we are supposed to be and embracing who we are.”
And how we define ourselves is vital to living a life where you are fully alive.
So join me on today's episode where I will help you uncover your current identity and invite you to update any parts that are no longer in alignment with your true self
S2: EP 2- WHY YOU'RE HAVING AN IDENTITY CRISIS
On this week’s episode, Lindsley and I have a beautiful candid conversation about what it’s like to rebuild our identity after divorce or major life transitions and we explore what happens when we decide to come back to our real selves after years of wearing different masks and pretending to be someone we aren’t.
Join us as we dive deep into this month’s topic of IDENTITY and explore how you can begin to embrace your true self, remember who she is, and let go of the parts that no longer fit.
S2: EP 3 - DO YOU KNOW WHAT YOUR UNIQUE STRENGTHS ARE? Special guest Kate Pintor
On today’s podcast episode, my co-host Lindsley and I are gonna introduce you to a woman named Kate Pintor and a personality assessment that will help you begin to own more of who you really are.
There’s a theory that we should overcome and improve the parts of ourselves that we consider to be our “weaknesses”. Society tells us in order to achieve and accomplish our dreams and goals we need to focus and improve the parts of us that need fixing.
S2: EP5 - PRETENDING? WHY MOST OF US FEEL LIKE FRAUDS
Join Mary and her cohost Lindsley Brooks in the 5th episode of this month’s topic of IDENTITY as they have a candid conversation about Imposter Syndrome and feeling like a fraud.
Do you feel afraid that someone will discover who you really are?
Do you tend to feel like a phony?
Are you afraid if someone knew the “real you” they wouldn’t want to work with you, love you, etc.
Or are you terrified that someone will discover that you’re just “pretending” to care and you’re not as genuine as others might think you are?

So which one is the real you? Which voice should you be listening to? Tune in to today’s episode to find out!
