You didn’t think I was going to make everyone else get up on stage and skip my turn, did you? That’s right, girlfriends. To close out Season One, I’m dishing all the dirty deets about my very own bullshit. Well… one of my bullshits, anyway. (Gotta save something for Season Two!)
And I chose this particular BS, partly because even some of my best friends didn’t know about it.
At this point, you probably already know a few things about me.
You know I’m not afraid of a good conversation and the occasional swear word.
You know I’m a bullshit-free business coach for female entrepreneurs who want to fire up their businesses.
You know I came from the corporate world, created a massive franchise expo, and helped launch and grow over 100 businesses. I’ve got no shortage of professional experience.
But that doesn’t mean I haven’t felt lost. And it definitely doesn’t mean that I don’t have my own share of bullshit to burn.
“I believe we all have patterns that we’ve created that get stuck on replay until we wake up. Until we see it for what it is. Until we own our role in it and fucking do something to end the cycle.”
My pattern of playing the victim started the same way every time: feeling wronged by someone.
Or slighted by them, or even exploited by them.
After that, I didn’t need a tarot reader or a psychic hotline to tell me what was going to happen next. I’d get mad, and I’d storm off to lick my wounds and complain to pretty much anyone who’d listen.
In this episode, I’ll tell you all about:
- Some of my woe-is-me victim stories, from all the way back in my corporate days to as recently as (eek) 2016-2017
- How my pattern of victimization isolated me, even while I acted like everything was fine
- The moment my friend (and, pssst, previous podcast guest) pointed out my BS
- My 3 big takeaways from the years I spent repeating this pattern — so you don’t have to do the same
So don’t touch that dial, because it’s season finale time. Nobody’s going to meet their long-lost twin or reveal their secret identity*, but hopefully you’ll feel ready to face your own bullshit… and bust out the blowtorch. Thanks for listening, girlfriends.
See you in Season Two in January!
*I know you’ve never seen us in the same room together, but I promise I’m not Wonder Woman
