Make Some Noise: How To Speak Your Mind + Own Your Strength with Andrea Owen
For women, moving away from behaviors that don’t work for us anymore, letting go of core beliefs that convince us we’re broken and not enough, laying a stake in the ground around our desires, is an act of making noise. – Andrea Owen
Have you ever received the message that you’re “too much”? Too loud, too opinionated, too sensitive or emotional, too talkative, too big, too something…
As women we’ve been socialized since birth to smile, make others comfortable, go along and get along, be helpful and put other people’s needs before our own. And a lot of the time we don’t even consciously realize this is happening.
But repeating these behaviors, over months and years, can lead to resentment, poor boundary-setting, people-pleasing, approval-seeking, lashing out, negative self- talk, and unnecessary apologizing.
My guest today is Andrea Owen. She’s an author, global speaker, and professional certified life coach who helps high-achieving women maximize unshakeable confidence, and master resilience.
Andrea’s taught hundreds of thousands of women tools and strategies to be able to empower themselves to live their most kick-ass life through speaking, her books, coaching, and her wildly popular podcast with over 3 million downloads.
She is the proud author of three books: How To Stop Feeling Like Shit: 14 Habits That Are Holding You Back From Happiness, 52 Ways to Live a Kick-Ass Life: BS Free Wisdom to Ignite Your Inner Badass and Live the Life You Deserve, and her latest book, Make Some Noise: Speak Your Mind and Own Your Strength.
Today I’m talking with Andrea about common behavior patterns that sabotage our power as women and how to unlearn what we’ve been taught so that we can create a life that serves our needs and desires.
In this episode, we discuss:
How women have been conditioned, both subtly and overtly, to stay small, “in our lane” and make others comfortable
- Why to start asking for everything you want
- Why to stop waiting until you’re “ready”
- How and why we use alcohol to ‘check out’ from our lives
- Your truth vs. your conditioning, internalized misogyny and what the patriarchy has to do with it
- Why Andrea quit drinking 10 years ago
- How Beyoncé, Billie Jean King and Wonder Woman can help you take up space and shine bright
- How curiosity and self compassion can help you unlearn behaviors that are holding you back
