Wickedly Smart Women

Dec 15, 2021

Women are raised to be accommodating and put others first, which leads to self-destructive behaviors like people pleasing, perfectionism and the desire to control. Behaviors that leave us unfulfilled and feeling like sh*t. So, how do we learn to recognize these behaviors and make a different choice in the moment?

Andrea Owen is the life coach, global speaker and self-proclaimed hellraiser behind the Make Some Noise Podcast. She is also the bestselling author of How to Stop Feeling Like Sh*t and Make Some Noise, and her books have been translated into 18 languages. Andrea is on a mission to help high-achieving women build unshakable confidence and master resilience.

On this episode of Wickedly Smart Women, Andrea joins Anjel to share her personal struggle with codependency and addiction, explaining how those experiences led to her work as a life coach. She describes the behaviors we use to avoid shame and why they make us feel like sh*t, challenging women to talk about the things we want to fix. Listen in for Andrea’s insight on the conditioning that holds women back and learn to let go of the habits that don’t serve you and choose behaviors that do!
