#172: SPEAK UP


Speaking up for what you believe and want isn’t always easy right!? It could feel uncomfortable, you don’t know what to say or maybe you’re not used to do it. A lot of times too we get worried about what others might think.

Fortunately, like any habit, speaking up CAN be learned and refined so you feel more comfortable in ALL situations. 

Empowerment Coach & Hypnotherapist, Amy Green Smith, joins the show to share how to speak up for ourselves - without being dicks. Her advice is irreverent, inspiring AND incredibly effective. 

We discuss everything from why we accept bad behaviour from others to how to create boundaries in the workplace. 

The core of Amy’s message is to honour your own voice for self-worth and confidence but you can do it in tactful and well-strategised ways.  Listen for the courage to speak UP!
