10th August 2021 • The One Big Tip Podcast with Jeff Mendelson • Everyone has that One Big Tip!
Allyson Blythe is a certified life coach who proves both individual group coaching and therapy services, workshops, and seminars. She’s even the author of her very own book, titled Misunderstood: Rewriting the Rules of Dignity and Respect. Today, Allyson is here to share some of her wisdom with listeners; her One Big Tip is all about unlocking your most authentic self through a process called self-defining.
Allyson says that too often, our conceptions of wealth, happiness, and success come from outside influences - we try to fit a mold that other people have made for us. But the real key to finding the most success and happiness for yourself is to look inward.
If you want to live your life and run your business the way you truly want to, rather than the way other people expect you to, it’s time to dive into Allyson’s self-defining process. In this episode, you’ll learn all about what it means to self-define, why it’s so important, and how to do it for yourself - from setting your own goals to honoring yourself by following through.
