You know, the journey of self-confidence is a tapestry woven with both our strengths and vulnerabilities. It’s fascinating how our identities are shaped by not just our achievements, but also by the whispers of self-doubt that echo in the corners of our minds. I’ve been reflecting on this a lot lately, especially as I’ve been helping more people open brick-and-mortar business. And let me tell you, I get it.

I’m no stranger to grappling with those nagging insecurities that try to hold us back. The idea of launching a physical store was both exhilarating and terrifying for me. The excitement of bringing my vision to life was clouded by thoughts like, “Am I really cut out for this?” or “What if I can’t compete with others who’ve been doing this for years?”

But here’s the thing – I realized that the power to transform those doubts into steppingstones lies within us. It’s a journey of learning to stand tall amidst the whispers of uncertainty and to chart our course based on our unique strengths and dreams, rather than constantly comparing ourselves to others.

And this is why I’m beyond thrilled to have Elise Besler with us today. Elise’s journey and insights resonate deeply with me, as she’s not only an advocate for showing up authentically, but also a guiding light for those of us navigating uncharted waters.

Elise Besler coaches her clients to understand themselves at their deepest level, so they can use their voices to be the change they want to see in the world. Not only is Elise an Embodied Voice and Life and Leadership Coach, she’s also an award-winning singer songwriter and active performer.

Elise has devoted the last 22 years to studying the nervous system and developing a coaching methodology that helps fellow coaches, folks in leadership, artists and entrepreneurs to embody their most confident selves and show up with Bold Presence. When Elise isn’t coaching her fabulous clients, she can be seen at the ocean’s edge, cuddling with her senior rescue pup Ellie, or sipping a crisp glass of Cali Chardonnay! 

So, let’s dive into a candid conversation with Elise. We’ll explore the strategies she’s honed to push past insecurities, the practices and practical advice that we can use every day on our entrepreneur journeys.

Stay tuned for an empowering discussion that I believe will resonate with each of us on this journey of self-discovery and growth. Let’s learn to rewrite the narrative of self-doubt together.
