In a world filled with challenges and uncertainties, sometimes the greatest hero you can have is the one within yourself. In the eyes of today's guest, Ashley Meyer, it's about dang time you started believing in it.

"You have a gift that they world desperately needs. Just because you wonder whether it's needed or not doesn't invalidate it. You are so needed."

Get ready for an episode that is going to plug you into your own magic, because this message pretty much summarizes this episode with Ashley, who is a proud supporter of the hero you see when you look in the mirror every day. In this conversation, we explore the notion that each of us has the potential to unleash your inner gifts and use them to be of service to the world.

We chat about the importance of self-belief and compassion as Ashley shares practical strategies to build the confidence to be your full, vulnerable, and authentic self.

Listen to this episode to hear:

  • Affirmation that your gifts are SO much more needed than your mind might be telling you.


  • "Decide that your voice is needed, because it is."
  • "It's you. It's always been you. No one else holds a candle to what you bring."
  • Ask yourself: "Does this thought make me feel good?" If not, choose another thought that does.
  • "Who you are and what you bring to the world is a gift. The secret is to believe in who you actually are for long enough to offer those gifts."
  • "No one wants a perfect hero. That's a boring movie!"

  • Be okay with being in process.
  • Take personal responsibility. Where are you outsourcing your power?
  • Don't be attached to the outcome. Enjoy the process.
  • Sales is service. Focus on other people and how you can be of service to others.
