Hello there ass kicker!
Today’s guest on the YKAL podcast is waaaay overdue. Amy Ahlers, author of Big Fat Lies Women Tell Themselves is here to talk to us about all things inner mean girl!
We all love formulas and processes and Amy has come up with a 3-step process for transforming your inner mean girl, which she talks about in the episode. You’ll also hear:
- What exactly is inner-wisdom and what to do if we don’t know where to start when it comes to listening to it.
- I ask Amy what is the most common big fat lie women tell themselves. (The answer doesn’t surprise me at all!)
- Amy tells us what her biggest trigger is and what are the steps she actually takes to manage her own inner mean girl.
- I ask Amy about a blog post she wrote, “Is Your Need to Belong Sabotaging you” and what do we do when we find ourselves changing who we are just to fit in and belong.
I love that Amy and I have so much of a similar philosophy about the inner-critic and I hope this episode is helpful to you!
