In this episode of #TheConfidencePodcastwe’re chatting about:

  • Celebrating 5 full years as a podcast community!
  • College of Confidence Giveaway – this week only !!!!
  • 70 small shifts that you can use for yourself too

As always, a quick hello to all of my Keep the Faith listeners, thanks for being a part of this extended community of contagious encouragement.


I am proud to bring this podcast to you in part thanks to my partnership with Beautycounter. Beautycounter is more than just a company I believe in, it is the only company I trust fully for myself and my family.  Beautycounter has brought a new level of health to my household, reduced our toxic exposure, and increased my self-care routine and how beautiful and clean my skin is. I can honestly say that I feel more beautifully me, thanks to Beautycounter.

Oh, and we are more than just a beauty company. We are a movement. We are on a mission to get safer products into the hands of everyone. We work because we can’t stand by idly as harmful chemicals cause our loved ones to get sick, struggle with fertility, and give birth to children with significant health issues. We work towards cleaner beauty everywhere because this is personal to all of us.

I would have never imagined that a podcast would where I would find my heart come alive.

I would have never known that I could build a business around a podcast.

I would have never known the power of becoming more, of growth, without this podcast.

It started with an idea.

An idea to serve others.

An idea to show up, no matter what.

An idea to push past my own doubts in order to love others.

I am so thankful I did.

Now, think about your own idea. That gift you want to share with the world.

Forget the self-doubt.

Forget the overthinking about the know-how.

Focus on the people you want to love and serve.

And then go do it.

Hi Trish,
I was listening to one of your recent podcasts about living an extraordinary life, number 235. This podcast really spoke to me as it’s something I’ve been focusing on recently. I grew up in a place where it was expected for people to be extraordinary in some way or another. I was the outlier, so I thought, and the person who was just ordinary in an extraordinary world. I’ve been battling and trying to find ways to be extraordinary ever since I moved away so that I can say I’m extraordinary in a different way. But after hearing your podcast, I realized that I was extraordinary in a different way. I’m extraordinary for fighting through lots of disappointment, heartbreak, anxiety, and moving away from friends and family. You helped me to realize just how important it is to recognize yourself as being extraordinary and to live an extraordinary life. Thank you for helping me to realize this!
