Unpolished 05: Confronting Fear

This episode focuses on what it’s like to put ourselves out there and the scary vulnerability that comes with testing and learning. We each share a personal story around the experience of offering our services for free in the spirit of moving our businesses forward. We also talk about how judging others is often a reflection of our own insecurities, how failure is just another way of learning, and the importance of building in recovery time once we take vulnerable actions.

Unpolished 04: Being Okay With Being Real

What started as a conversation around professional family photographs turned into a conversation around vulnerability, authenticity and so much more. In this episode, we discuss the downfall of the word should, the unnecessary pressure we put on ourselves by trying to compete with the perfect social media photo, and the value that each and every one of us provides by putting our own unique filter on the different ideas and experiences we each come across. We all need to find our own way of being comfortable with being exactly who we are.

Fun fact: The photo of Sarah in the sidebar is from the photoshoot we spoke about.

Unpolished 03: The Comparison Trap

Why do we get so triggered by people posting that they found the miracle solution? Or the perfect family photo? Why do we all get stuck in the trap of trying to make it sound like we’re all further along and experienced than we actually are? What would happen if we just spoke from the place of our raw, real, authentic selves? And what would happen if we gave ourselves permission to change the rules in our lives at any point in time? In this episode, we dive into these questions and more!

In the episode, Sarah mentions that we are each a unique piece of a much larger puzzle. Here is a beautiful Poem by Tara Mohr around that same idea.
