Anxiety is something that affects so many people throughout the world. Many of those affected don’t have the correct tools to deal with their anxiety unfortunately. Today’s guest, Carla Royal, is a Mindset & Performance Coach who works with high achieving, high-performance entrepreneurs and business owners who are quietly dealing with hidden anxiety and too much mental chatter.  After growing up in a family of anxious, stressed out people, Carla knew she needed to find the correct coping mechanisms to not only help herself, but to help others break free from the grip of anxiety.

Tune in to hear Carla and Lance discuss the role anxiety is playing during the global pandemic and the importance of opening up about your anxiety and other mental issues.  This rings true especially for men!
