Here my sixth conversation with my friend Tamara Powell. In episode 81 we discussed why we built our business and breaking through limiting beliefs. In episode 85 we talked about labels and constructs that may be holding you back and encouraged you to begin to explore them. In episode 89 we discussed the magic of liminal space or seasons of change. In episode 93 we discussed navigating fears in business and life. In episode 98 we talked about the opportunities our blind spots and shadow work bring to our lives. In episode 103 we discussed why personal development shouldn’t be a buzzword and is part of your self-care.

If you do not know Tamara Powell, LMHC is a licensed therapist, university psychology instructor, and empowerment coach who believes life should be lived as a journey that is “anything but ordinary.”

Her work is specialized to help individuals break free from toxic cycles of distress, dysfunction, and dissatisfaction with life that are created when trying to live according to someone else’s rules.

Only by living what she calls radical autonomy, can one obtain soul-nourishing relationships and a sense of true life purpose and inner peace.
