Why Being Real Matters in Life & Business

With Barbara Patterson + Melissa Palazzo-Hart

What if you could do what you love, have a fulfilling personal life, be successful and fully express the real you in life?

Join Barb and Melissa today as they discuss their journeys and transitions from their hustle and bustle lives, where ‘efforting’ was in fact not the magic formula. Instead, making space to go within and showing up in the present moment proved to be a far more accurate navigation system than leaning into the grind.

Want to deconstruct your limited ideas about what’s possible for you?

This episode will inspire you to shed the preconceived notions of who you should be, encourage you to simply show up as the real you, and give you reason to follow your own inner well of creativity to achieve your dreams and live your best life.
