152: Permission to Evolve w/ Steph Gaudreau
I am so honored to have Steph Gaudreau back on the Grace & Grit Podcast to expand the conversation around “Embracing Resistance”, which is the theme on the podcast this month.
I have watched Steph’s business and message spread like wildfire over the past few years, and I know that the growth she has experienced has not come without a fair share of challenges.
In this episode, Steph graciously shares what it took for her to move through resistance along the path to growth, how she gave herself permission to evolve, even when it felt there was a lot at stake, and how she gracefully handles resistance when it shows up in her own health journey.
Lots of good stuff here! Have a listen and share your thoughts.
