This is one of the greatest and hardest lessons IÃƒÂ¢Ã¢â€šÂ¬Ã¢â€žÂ¢ve learned.
Sometimes in life, we start to choose to do the things that will make other people happy, instead of ourselves. IÃƒÂ¢Ã¢â€šÂ¬Ã¢â€žÂ¢ve been there time and time again and eventually I end up completely lost.
Have you ever found yourself working so hard to please the people around you that you lost sight of your own happiness?
Then this episode, is for you, you lovely human being.
WeÃƒÂ¢Ã¢â€šÂ¬Ã¢â€žÂ¢re talking about staying true to ourselves with the lovely and freaking amazing Claire Coder. Claire is the Founder and CEO of Aunt Flow. WeÃƒÂ¢Ã¢â€šÂ¬Ã¢â€žÂ¢re talking tampons people.
Why? Claire embodies staying true to your truest self...at age nineteen!
Claire dropped out of college after only a semester and was ALL on her own. Shitty job and all. Oh yes, sheÃƒÂ¢Ã¢â€šÂ¬Ã¢â€žÂ¢s been there too.
But now, sheÃƒÂ¢Ã¢â€šÂ¬Ã¢â€žÂ¢s CEO. SheÃƒÂ¢Ã¢â€šÂ¬Ã¢â€žÂ¢s got a dreamy life. SheÃƒÂ¢Ã¢â€šÂ¬Ã¢â€žÂ¢s freaking awesome. But entrepreneurship isnÃƒÂ¢Ã¢â€šÂ¬Ã¢â€žÂ¢t all roses and tampons. In fact, most of the time, itÃƒÂ¢Ã¢â€šÂ¬Ã¢â€žÂ¢s anything but dreamy.
I started to forget who I was off of Instagram. I forgot what it felt like to not Snapchat my entire life. I was so caught up in social media that I could not separate it from my actual reality. So, I took a week-long social media hiatus. This is my truths, my fears, my insecurities, and what I learned about myself along the way. Don't miss the end! I share the 2 questions I now ask myself to ensure I'm consciously consuming + the 2 boundaries I've created so that social media feels more inspiring and less forced.
We get caught up in tying ourselves to the outcome. If this is successful, then IÃƒÂ¢Ã¢â€šÂ¬Ã¢â€žÂ¢m successful. If this fails, then IÃƒÂ¢Ã¢â€šÂ¬Ã¢â€žÂ¢m a failure. Nicole shares her story of miscarrying her first child, dealing with the guilt and hard emotions that followed, leaving her corporate job, and starting her business only six months ago. We talk about learning to give it your all without tying yourself to the outcome, overcoming comparison, and #allthehardthings!
