  • Building Your Village
  • The Importance of Asking for Help
  • Embracing Change and Personal Growth

Building Your Village (00:07:16 - 00:08:33)

The concept of building your village and the roles that different people play in your life. It emphasizes the importance of identifying and casting the right people into roles that support and uplift you.

“I want you to think of this as casting a movie or a play. These are your main characters, and once you do that casting, you’re gonna look back and think, okay, now I understand why I feel a certain way.”​​.

The Importance of Asking for Help (00:12:21 - 00:13:14)

Asking for help is often challenging, especially for women. It addresses the fear of indebtedness and the perception of weakness that hinders many from reaching out. Societal pressures and personal insecurities often prevent people from asking for help, but true relationships thrive on mutual support and understanding.

“The thing that ties public speaking as the number one fear in this world is asking for help… We get in our own way with the asking for help part of it.”​​.

Embracing Change and Personal Growth (00:37:09 - 00:38:03)

The inevitability of change and embracing it can lead to personal growth and new opportunities. View change as a positive force that brings growth and new connections rather than something to fear.

“The only thing I can promise you is that the village is gonna change… Instead of being afraid of that, lean into it and trust that if the village is changing, maybe it is for a reason.”​​.
