I’m not going to lie.

I was really excited when Andrea Owen accepted my invitation to come on PYP and share her stories about being more vulnerable, getting sober and building a life on your own terms. I learned about her through a podcast I listen to, which led me to her podcast Your Kick A$$ Life which led me to her book (which I highly recommend.) Honest, energetic and inspirational, Andrea Owen isn’t afraid to play her position full out and is winning big time because she does. On today’s show, she opens her heart and gets super real about tough topics like making amends, letting go of what we thought would happen and accepting that when life doesn’t work out the way we imagined, there may actually be something better behind our disappointment.

Some details about Andrea:

She is an author, mentor, and certified life coach who helps high-achieving women let go of perfectionism, control, and isolation and choose courage and confidence instead. She has helped thousands of women manage their inner-critic to create loving connections and live their most kick-ass life.

She is the proud author of 52 Ways to Live a Kick-Ass Life: BS Free Wisdom to Ignite Your Inner Badass and Live the Life You Deserve, (Adams Media/Simon & Schuster) and How To Stop Feeling Like Shit: 14 Habits That Are Holding You Back From Happiness (Seal Press/Hachette Books).

When she’s not juggling her full coaching practice or hosting retreats, Andrea is busy competing in triathlons, chasing her 10-year-old son and 8-year-old daughter or making out with her husband, Jason. She is also a retired roller derby player having skated under the name “Veronica Vain.”

Leadership skills and insights Andrea shares on today’s show:

  • Great leadership requires aligning our deepest values with our choices
  • We don’t have to let the past define us (and are better when we don’t)
  • Learning to be vulnerable can open tremendous opportunities for us personally and professionally
  • As painful as endings are, allowing ourselves to grieve the loss makes us stronger and more compassionate
