What is the 1 experience you absolutely would love to have during your lifetime? That's where I need your head at as you listen to this week's episode.

This week, you are going to meet Tegan Henke. Tegan always wanted to travel internationally, but she never took steps to make it happen. After experiencing a divorce, she began a period of self-growth and self-reflection. Her desire to travel came roaring back, and she began to intentionally create a life that would eventually allow her to travel the world for 10 months!

Her interview is so good! Most notably, she talks about:

  • How being vulnerable and speaking her truth ultimately brought her the closest friendships she has ever had. 
  • The one lesson about people that she learned from traveling and meeting people all over the world.
  • The way we all can use prototyping to align our life with our true desires and values.

I am absolutely thrilled to introduce you to Tegan Henke!

This episode is for you if you've ever asked yourself questions like:

  • Am I good enough?
  • Who am I to try to tackle this big goal?
  • Do I really think I can pull this off?

In this week's episode, you'll meet the amazing Julie Burton, the founder of ModernWell: a woman-centered collaborative space connecting work, life, creativity, and wellness that opened January 2nd, 2018, in Minneapolis. She is a freelance writer, blogger, teacher co-founder of the Twin Cities Writing Studio, a yoga instructor, wife and mom of four. She is the author of The Self-Care Solution—A Modern Mother’s Essential Guide to Health and Well-Being (She Writes Press 2016).

Julie's episode is one of the most vulnerable, authentic interviews I've ever recorded. She truly opened up about her personal journey toward entrepreneurship and the roles that fear and self-doubt have played along the way. 

Beyond that, she talked about the way her relationship with other women has evolved over her lifetime. I know this is something that we can all relate to. 

I am absolutely thrilled for you to meet Julie Burton!
