Welcome to another episode of the Me Skills Podcast, where we lean into self-love and great ideas that build a better life. In this episode, your hosts Kelly and Tish are joined by special guest Cindy Bidar.

We chat with Cindy about self-coaching. Yep, you can self-coach yourself and it’s not complicated at all! Listen in as Cindy shares a few examples of how she uses self-coaching in her life/business.

This conversation was also perfect timing for something Tish was dealing with and they go into detail and chat about that where Kelly points out fixed mindset versus growth mindset.

(Note: this episode, as usual, contains swearing. 😉)

About Cindy: Cindy Bidar is a small business consultant. She works with new coaches, course creators, and content marketers to help them attract their ideal client, grow their email lists, and market their businesses more effectively without hiring a big team or wasting time on social media.
