No matter how hard you work and how much you succeed, what makes you feel that you’ll never reach your ideal version of you? The seeds of your inner gremlin are planted early on in your childhood experience, building a foundation of self doubt and need to fulfill unnecessary expectations. Allowing the walls of perfectionism to fall around you and releasing your inner child from the barriers you created long ago, will set you free and allow you to step into your full potential. Today we are speaking with Alison Shamir about how she has quieted her inner gremlin and why creating a trustworthy community of support will remind you that you are not alone.

Join us as we discuss:

  • The need for support that allows you to verbalize areas you need help with
  • Prioritizing the areas that are in your control first before stepping into the uncontrollable
  • Healing your childhood trauma to release you from perfectionism
