Episode 017: Getting Comfortable with Resistance- How’s it Showing Up In Your Career?

We can all just admit it. Resistance kind of sucks. It’s a crazy powerful force that can even knock the most diligent and goal-oriented among us off kilter, causing us to whittle away our days and nights sitting on the couch with a glass or two of pinot noir, watching Last Week Tonight With John Oliver, which then causes us to cry into aforementioned pinot noir at the state of the world. 


Anyway, I digress. SEE?! Look what resistance made me do! I just went on a tangent with imaginary pinot noir! 


This is why we’re focusing on the topic and idea of resistance this month. And I suspect we’ll return to it again and again over the coming years. Because as far as I can tell, it never goes away completely, and can resurface in sneaky ways- to the point that you might not even realize you’re resisting something! 


SO, this month we’re providing all sorts of different perspectives on this beast, and I’ve creating a tool to help you start to chip away at resistance.  We’re helping you uncover where it comes from, how it shows up and what you can do about it. Get it by clicking the button below.  




Later this month, we’re going to be sharing tons of listener stories and other guests’ stories on resistance, but for now, it’s time to do a check in with yourself. Grab the tool for this month and uncover: 


  • Where resistance comes from for you 
  • How it shows up in your life 
  • What you can do about it 



AND if you want to work on this with other ladies wanting to make big moves but are feeling stuck when left to your own devices, join us on our retreat outside of NYC this month! We’ve just got 2 slots left!
