In this episode you will experience Madison’s healthy mindset on shame and ego, the power of giving yourself the permission to love yourself for who you are, and how to overcome imposter syndrome. This is an extra special episode because the last 15 minutes, Madison and I have an impromptu coaching session on my fears and lack of creativity lately. It’s raw and it’s real.
