In today’s conversation, Chelsey is joined by Shoshanna Raven, a business and empowerment coach for heart-centered womxn stepping into leadership and growing community around their work. 

Shoshanna is a leadership and business coach, and the host of the Living Brave podcast. She helps entrepreneurs turn their gifts into offers and build businesses that serve their communities.

In 2015, she traded corporate consulting in NYC for a one-way ticket to India. After a yoga teacher training, 30+ countries, and four years as a freelance writer, she launched Living Brave. The platform expanded from a podcast to signature coaching programs, international retreats, and a global community.

In this episode we chat about:

  • How starting a business can be a vehicle for personal growth
  • Doing the inner work first
  • Showing up with your true colours
  • Showing your truth as a way to be more magnetic
  • Authentic leadership
  • Sharing our vulnerabilities and stigmatized characteristics as a way to step outside shame and others to do the same
  • Living with HSV1 / herpes and choosing how & when to share that with others
  • Shaking off “traditional” business advice and embracing what lights you up
  • Dropping the “shoulds”
  • Taking the pressure off and allowing your passions to grow organically

And so much more, enjoy!
