Too many of us have been taught that prioritizing ourselves is selfish.

Let’s debunk that myth. Tune in today to let me change your mind about what it means to prioritize yourself and show you why it’s an essential skill.

In this episode, I put on my lawyer’s hat and present four arguments in favor are you putting yourself and what you need on the agenda. You’ll learn why doing this will help you create a more meaningful life, more easily access the innovative part of your brain, feel happier in your relationships, and become more capable of achieving your goals.

I’m a former international tax lawyer and senior partner with Ernst & Young. I left the law in 2014 to learn how to paint. After a couple years painting and selling my work, I became passionate about helping other people who feel stuck in their careers and lives and want to feel more personally fulfilled, invigorated and soul connected. I now spend my time painting, coaching, and creating live events at the George Russell Academy of Creative Expansion in beautiful Prince Edward County, Ontario, Canada (PS called “GRACE” – one of my favourite words!)
