The problem you think you have isn’t the problem you actually have. I’ve often said that on this podcast. And the journey that my client and guest today, Laurie-Ann Murabito, took from reformed painfully shy girl to accidental professional speaker illustrates it well. In this episode, she and I talk about perfectionism, self-trust, and showing up as the real you so you can get the outcomes you want in your life and business.
