I'm sure you can think of a time when fear stopped you. Maybe it was when you were thinking about asking for a raise, finding out if that attractive person liked you, writing that book, or taking that vacation to a far away land. Do you ever wish you could go back and do things differently? In today's episode, I interview Lauree Ostrofsky, a person who helps women leap. Her books are, "Simply Leap: Seven Lessons on Facing Fear and Enjoying the Crap out of Your Life,” and "I'm scared & doing it anyway," about reinventing her life after being diagnosed with a brain tumor. 

We discuss:

  • The moment Lauree's life changed and she started realizing the power in her thoughts
  • Tips on how to do things that scare you
  • What kinds of mistakes people make when it comes to taking action when fear is present
  • The one core trait you have to be able to access to do things that scare you
  • How being accommodating to others can get in the way of leading a fearless life
  • And more!

Find out more about Lauree's writing, speaking and hugging at SimplyLeap.com and @SimplyLeap on Instagram, Facebook, and Twitter.

Have you ever signed up to give a presentation, and in the days or weeks leading up to it, regretted ever putting yourself in that situation? If so, you're not alone! Many speakers experience intense feelings of anxiety, fear, worry, and stress for varying amounts of time before they take the stage. The good news: It doesn't have to be this way! My guest today is Crystal Farley, chief story teller and co-creator for two successful podcasts, PTSD: People, Trauma, and Stress Discussed: an unfiltered truth, as well as Making of HERstory. Crystal is a national speaker on the topic of women’s advocacy in the workplace, and as a Certified Stress Management Maven, is the founder of C Far: Beyond the Box, an organizational stress management consulting business working to create a better foundation of stress management for employees. Crystal is a combat veteran and former woman of technology, having worked for companies like Apple, IBM, and HPE.

What we cover on today's episode:

  • How to manage feelings of anxiety, stress, and fear
  • Tips for taking care of yourself when leading up to a big event (like a big presentation)
  • Strategies for anxiety management
  • Mistakes people make when trying to cope with difficult feelings
  • What expectations have to do with taking away joy
  • How to stop comparing yourself to others and have your own experience
  • The value of being present before and during your speech and how to do this
  • The roles rituals and accountability play in stress management
