πŸŽ™οΈ Hey friend and welcome to The Live By Design Podcast. I’m your host Kate House, and today, we’re delving deep into a topic that resonates with many of us – people-pleasing!

🌟 But before we dive in, let me introduce you to our insightful and inspiring guest, Michelle Gordon. Michelle isn’t just an Alignment & Mindset Coach; she’s a true embodiment of resilience and transformation. With a background as a registered nurse in Australia’s busiest emergency and critical care units for over two decades, Michelle’s journey took an unexpected turn when the challenges of a new family business and the responsibilities of motherhood began to unravel her own well-being.

🌱 Amidst the challenges of stress and anxiety, Michelle found herself seeking solace. However, it was one specific awakening that followed a particularly difficult night that truly reshaped her path. Michelle knew she was needing a profound transformation to reclaim her health and well-being, so she immersed herself in understanding her physical, mental, and emotional health, ultimately crafting her own path to recovery.

🌠 Now, as an Alignment & Mindset Coach, Michelle shares her story and strategies to empower women facing similar struggles or seeking to elevate their lives. Today, we are honored to have her here to shed light on a topic that affects so many of us – people-pleasing.

πŸ™‹ So, dear listeners, if you’ve ever found yourself caught in the web of people-pleasing tendencies, this episode was recorded just for you. Michelle guides us through what people-pleasing truly is, how it manifests in our lives, and the origins that give birth to this often challenging behavior.

🌟 But here’s the exciting part – awareness is the first step towards transformation. With Michelle’s insights, we’re going to learn how to break free from the shackles of people-pleasing and move towards inner alignment. We’ll uncover the path to a more profound connection with our authentic selves and a life lived from a space of abundance.

So, my sweet friends, if you’re ready to release the burdens of people-pleasing and rewrite your life’s narrative, stick around. Michelle Gordon’s wisdom is about to guide us on a journey of self-discovery and empowerment. It’s time to step into your authenticity, right here on The Live By Design Podcast!
