Vanessa Cornell seemed to have it all — a Harvard degree, a career at Goldman, five healthy kids, a packed social schedule — until she realized that a life aligned to others’ expectations was making her miserable. In this stirring episode, the NUSHU founder shares why she decided to turn her life inside-out, and all the unexpected magic that happened as a result. She gets vulnerable about her struggles as a lifelong perfectionist and talks about the exact tools she used to get curious, uncover her truth, and take action on it. If you’re someone who thinks you’re too deep in it to make a massive change, this episode will open your eyes to what’s possible when you’re willing to do the work.

In this episode we talk about:

  • Why your intuitive voice deserves to be heard — and listened to
  • The one thing you should focus on during moments of uncertainty
  • Three questions to help you figure out who you are and what brings you joy
  • How to gain control over your inner critic — for good
  • What a “gratitude trap” is, and how to prevent it from holding you back
  • How to know when it’s time to put an idea into the world
  • Vanessa’s #1 tip for aspiring entrepreneurs
