“You need to be bolder than you think you need to be.”
We are so excited and honored to be sharing this Unpolished Journey interview! In this latest installment, we talk with someone who has had a huge impact on both of our lives: Tara Sophia Mohr. Tara is an expert on women’s leadership and well-being, and an author, educator and certified coach. Tara is the author of Playing Big: Practical Wisdom for Women Who Want to Speak Up, Create, and Lead, published by Penguin Random House, and named a Best Book of the Year by Apple’s iBooks. She is the creator of the pioneering Playing Big leadership program for women, and Playing Big Facilitators Training for coaches, mentors and managers who support women in their personal and professional growth. Her work has been featured on The Today Show and in publications ranging from The New York Times to goop to Harvard Business Review. More than 45,000 women from around the world follow Tara’s writing and wisdom. She lives in San Francisco and loves dance, art, and long walks with her family.
This conversation is packed with wisdom you don’t want to miss. We talk with Tara about:
- How and pain, self-doubt, and curiosity led to the creation of Playing Big
- The early years of her entrepreneurial journey and how she dealt with the uncertainty and frustrations she experienced
- The true challenge of balancing career and motherhood (and it’s not time!)
- Her personal practices for working with her inner critic
- The surprising truth about realizing your dream
- And more!
Playing Big is defined as being more loyal to your dreams than your fears. And this conversation will absolutely inspire you to learn more about how to commit to that in your own life. We’d love to hear what resonated most with you from this episode. What is your top takeaway from this conversation?
