When Women Hear Their Own Wisdom with Karlee Fain
There are a few common misconceptions about what boundaries are; they are not what we articulate between ourselves and others. Boundaries are a contract between ourselves and our values, and it is not the others that push our limits; it is ourselves who push them back.
Joining me today is Karlee Fain; she is a celebrity business and boundary coach, author, speaker, and founder of The Boundary Academy. She specializes in guiding driven, career-motivated people, to focus on a professional growth strategy that will make them succeed without losing their health and spirit in the process.
In this episode, we talk about boundaries being a bridge instead of a wall, coming back to our center, and why seeking external validation is such a hurdle. Karlee shared her experience of growing up in a yoga ashram, and when it clicked for her that her life hadn’t had to be either yogi or corporate.
