Trailblazers Episode 1: Tanya Geisler on The Impostor complex

Ever felt like a fraud? Like you didn't belong? Maybe that voice was right; or maybe it was your inner impostor.

Today I'm sharing a heart warming interview with Tanya Geisler, one of my favorite humans on the planet. She helped me overcome my inner impostor the day I met her and she continues to make waves in the world of coaching. 

One year ago this week I launched this blog with a lot of fear, some high hopes, and words of a mamma bear woman embedded in my soul. Tanya Geisler was an unexpected mentor, coach mom, and friend I gained summer 2015 at the Beautiful You Training Inspiration Day. She was my push to get this baby out into the world, and one year later, I get to share her heart with you in my first Trailblazers Episode.

In thisepisode Tanya delves into her work with the impostor including what exactly it is, 4 attributes the impostor complex brings, why feeling like a fraud is totally normal, and ways to combat your own inner impostor. I can't wait for you to hear her soulful laugh and divine insight. Get ready for some real-talk and welcome to The Trailblazers Series, Episode 1.
