As promised here is another episode with my friend Tamara Powell. We stated in episode 81 that at the end of the month, for 8 months, we are coming together to discuss some of the personal blocks that we and/or our clients struggle with being a female entrepreneur.

Tamara is a returning guest. She was on episode 3. 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.
