Amazing, amazing podcast. A couple of months ago, I began community to work and found myself looking for something to listen to on my hour to two-hour drive. I was not expecting to find something actually worth listening to: I was taken aback by Trish’s podcast and find myself irritated when I have to stop listening once I actually arrive at work. She is so incredibly positive, upbeat and encouraging without being fake. She’s entirely real and down to earth and simply lovely to listen to. Not only do I feel better after listening to every episode, I feel stronger, wiser and much more sure of myself and where I am headed. An absolutely life-changing podcast. This is a must-listen. 🙂

Just a quick note to let you know how much I love all things clean – clean thinking, clean living, clean eating, and clean beauty. I’m sure you’re seeing my favorite clean beauty brand all over the news … we were literally the top Googled beauty trend of 2018 and we are truly effecting change through beauty.  If you haven’t fallen in love with Beautycounter yet, you’re the one missing out.

What makes me so sure that you have the ability to be more confident each day, even if you don’t “feel” the changes happening?

It’s one thing we all have in common: we are aging.

And with age, comes repetition – and wisdom, and perspective and, repetition again.

The Confidence Formula. 

If you’re here, it means you’re ready to create a life that is accelerated by your confidence, not limited by your lack of it. On this Confidence Coaching page, you will find the essential starting places we can help you step out of the prison of self-doubt and into the freedom of self-belief.

Confidence is achieved through a systemized formula, consisting of 3 primary elements of focus and progressing through 5 different stages of growth. Confidence is not for the “lucky” it is for everyone, and this will teach you how to have it for yourself.

Hi Trish – just wanted to thank you for your words of encouragement, especially those centered in prayer and in God as our ultimate source of confidence!  I am listening to #311 and it’s so refreshing to hear the Christian perspective of growing in our confidence.  In this day and age, it takes courage to speak from this place and I commend you for being your authentic self and sharing this truth!

Your sister in confidence and in Christ,
