We tend to live by a set of unconscious rules that we’ve inherited—from our families, our culture, the media and more. But when they keep you tethered to a way of life that isn’t serving your highest good? Award-winning author, speaker and podcast host Heather Whelpley says it’s time to make your own rules.

Together, we unpack:

The four types of rules we have “inherited” from outside forces and how they play out in our lives.

How to become conscious of the rules you’ve internalized and adopted—and start testing whether they are actually true.

The relationship between culturally expected perfection and imposter syndrome.

The role of “breaks”—big and small—in creating opportunities to understand, challenge and change the rules you’ve been living by.

How to start—and stick with—making your own rules to expand your business and your life.
