Amy is on a mission to STOP women from self-bullying and being so darn hard on themselves so they can make their greatest possible contribution.
Today we talk about managing your inner mean girl during times of crisis, such as what we’re all going through right now. Together we discuss the idea of leaning into the depth of what is really important to you currently— which could be napping or jumping into a passion project. What is your soul’s message? We also chat about writing and how it can be a powerful tool for healing.
