What we chat about:
– how we are all the same, and that meeting all the famous people has showed Lisa that self-confidence is the key to bridging the gap
– Lisa’s rock bottom moment 10 years ago and how the fact that she was able to turn this all around means we all can – and to have the courage to really start looking at who you are and what’s important to you, and to stop living life according to other’s expectations so you can live your best life
– Self-sabotage patterns in entrepreneurs, and how we keep getting in our own way
– how the ability to come outside of herself and really observe her own patterns of self-limiting behaviours have been key to Lisa creating a life that nourishes her
