350: Fears, Permissions, and Discoveries of Going Your Own Way – Melanie Deziel

We all desire to go our own way. Doesn’t matter if it is in love, work, or life in general. But there’s this little, big word that holds us back – PERMISSION. We come to the precipice of doing our thing, going our way, and then we retreat, waiting for someone, maybe ourselves, to approve and give us PERMISSION to do the thing we want to do.

Then, to often we get derailed because the fears, bullshit, and trash talk take over and we can’t even get to the permission piece because all the rest of the stuff is bombarding us.

So what are you to do?

Fellow Speaker and Coach, Melanie Deziel makes the bold move to share her story of leaving her corporate job, carving out her plan for a new away of being in life, and going beyond “DESK FRUSTRATED,” even though it scared the crap out of her. She goes raw and real with the inside scoop on how she went from fear, to leaning into her own FAB and a story brand expert who gave herself permission to go be her and do her thing.
