Hey, beautiful souls!

Welcome to today’s show!

If you’re all about diving deep into self-awareness and finding that sweet spot of inner balance, then buckle up because today’s episode is a treasure trove of insights. I’m super excited to introduce you to the phenomenal Teresa Lodato, a transformation coach, author, and speaker who’s become a beacon for high-achieving women everywhere.

Teresa’s story is nothing short of inspiring. Imagine pivoting from a two-decade-long career in financial services, halted by a severe stress-induced illness, to immersing yourself in psychology, neuroscience, and relational trauma coaching. That’s Teresa for you! With her vast expertise, she’s here to offer us a roadmap to better connect with our inner selves and harness our innate potential.

During our chat, Teresa shared a pivotal moment in her life when everything flipped upside down. Working in a high-pressure environment, juggling a challenging marriage, and dealing with health issues, she found herself at a crossroads. The universe seemed to conspire to bring her to a point where she had to make a life-altering decision.

Faced with a dire prognosis that she would never work again, Teresa had to muster the courage to choose between fear and trust. It was a moment of reckoning, a realization that despite the daunting path ahead, she had the power to reshape her destiny. And guess what? She chose love. She chose to trust herself.

Teresa’s journey of transformation is a testament to the power of resilience and the beauty of trusting oneself. It’s about understanding that we are the foundation on which we stand, and in knowing this, we find true resilience and the ability to navigate life’s challenges with grace and confidence.

Her story is a vivid reminder that we always have a choice. It’s a call to lean into our fears, embrace the unknown, and trust that inner voice that nudges us toward growth and fulfillment. Teresa’s experience is a powerful illustration of how, even when life seems to crumble, we can find the strength to rise from the ashes and create a life that’s aligned with our deepest values and aspirations.

So, if you’re ready to be inspired and learn how to tap into your own inner strength, you don’t want to miss this conversation. Teresa’s wisdom is a guiding light for anyone seeking to navigate the complexities of life with a sense of purpose and empowerment.

Hit play to hear the full conversation! Trust me, you’ll want to soak in every bit of this soulful exchange.

Here’s to finding our balance and dancing to the rhythm of our own hearts.
