Briely – Five Stars, “LOVE THIS PODCAST”

The Confidence Podcast has changed my life! Trish always says exactly what I need to hear to fill my mind with truth and confidence to conquer the day and pursue my long term goals! Thank you, Trish, for giving me the tools to live a confident life! I am grateful for all of the time you dedicate to producing and releasing amazing podcast episodes each week. And I love the bonus spiritual episodes! I can’t thank you enough, Trish!


For a myriad of reasons, including: 

Pride, fear, comparison, self-pressure, lack of priorities, superhero syndrome, imposter syndrome, insecurity, self-doubt, poor time management, resistance to help / shame

Most often in my own life and in my coaching practice I see we define overwhelm as:

A state of being, a characteristic of lifestyle choice, a victim-mindset, a deep desire for worth derived from the busy-badge, lack of self-trust, a faith issue

For an overwhelmed spirit to change, everything needs to change:

Ownership, humility, collaboration, self-worth beyond performance, slowing down, simplifying and strategizing

The world tells us to step into this … it beckons to us, calls to us … but I don’t know about you, but I don’t want to be like the world. All it takes is one glance to see that most people doing this aren’t happy. And that’s a key to define overwhelm

What does it keep you from:

Confidence, success, traction, healthy relationships, the ability to be present, results, happiness, joy, peace


I have to come clean with you all. One thing I would never talk about publicly because I worried about what people thought of me, was the personal parts of my health care. I’m over that, which is why I wanted to tell you about my newest obsession, the 100% natural brand, LOLA.  LOLA is a female-founded company offering a line of organic cotton tampons, pads, liners and all-natural cleansing wipes.No toxins, mystery fibers, or doubts about what’s going in your body. LOLA products are all gynecologist-approved and hypoallergenic. Major brands use a mix of synthetic ingredients in their products including rayon and polyester.

Their feminine care products may also be treated with harsh chemical cleansing agents, fragrance, and dyes; I can’t believe I used such harsh chemicals inside my body for so many years, and I am so glad I have found an alternative solution. Plus, LOLA products come in a simple, customizable subscription. LOLA will deliver exactly what you need, exactly when you need it. I personally love how my monthly supply is delivered right to my door, in beautiful, clean packaging, might I add, which makes life as a busy mompreneur just a little bit easier for me.

Hi Trish!
I hope this is where i leave this.
I wanted to tell you i wake every morning to listen to your podcasts.  My life is un a very hard season.  And your podcasts have been the light to the darkness.
I just listened to the “fake it tilk you make it” i loved to hear the joy in your voices.  I think part of my struggles is that of having toxic friendships. I dont know how to make new friendships.  Can you speak about the how to find these people? I would love to find people who the lifting up is reciprocal. -Laura
