Another dear friend and repeat guest is with us today – Jadah Sellner. Jadah is one of my favorite people to jam on business with since her approach is totally focused and centered on love and having a vision that means something to you – but we spent a good chunk of this chat talking about trauma, healing and growth.

And when we do get to the business stuff – no matter what you do in the world, much of what she talks about is totally applicable to other career paths.

We got into how going to therapy has helped her move forward in areas of her life and business in ways she couldn’t have anticipated, how we can use our stories responsibly, and a few different things related to capacity – survival tendencies, being in the Zone of Excellence and how deeper listening creates space for more expansion.

Enjoy this chat and if you are an entrepreneur be sure to invite your friends to listen and discuss the more unconventional points we covered…you know, for funsies!
