Tap Into Your Intuition to Lead an Authentic Life, episode 6

Tap Into Your Intuition to Lead an Authentic Life, episode 6


Today’s guest is the fabulous digital marketing leader turned wellbeing and leadership coach, Holly O’Hanlon. Holly and I go way back, and I’m thrilled you get to hear her wisdom about tapping into your intuition to lead an authentic life. This is an incredibly important topic for everyone, but ESPECIALLY us creative souls who work in content marketing/communication-type roles.


  1. What does it actually mean to live authentically? Values, beliefs, social constructs, and doing the internal work to stop caring what others think when they're opinion doesn't matter.

  2. With so much information and input from the outside world, especially aimed at moms, how can we get quiet to hear our inner voices and trust our guts so we can do what brings us peace and joy?

  3. What stops us from speaking up and sharing our ideas? Is it fear? Holly explains how shame is to blame and what she's learned about this.

  4. How to evaluate something as a third-party observer and not take it personally. easier said than done, we realize, but Holly shares some tips to help you practice.

  5. Lots of great insights and tips to better tap into your intuition to lead an authentic life.
