Episode 167: How to Claim Your Power and Get to the Root Cause of What’s Holding You Back with Mastin Kipp

As a long-time follower of Mastin Kipp’s work, I am beyond thrilled to share our conversation with you. Not only does he talk about his journey (business and spiritual) up to this point, but he also touches on how his purpose seemed to evade him until recently and how he turned that experience into his new book, Claim Your Power. I’m currently reading it and it’s so amazing that he offers a practical step-by-step process to help you find your purpose, bring it to life and get out of your own way.

I love that Mastin is so transparent when it comes to his journey and I’m honored that he shares what he’s learned and experienced firsthand. There are so many powerful takeaways that can help you return to your natural state of happiness. If you’re willing and ready to work on finding your purpose this podcast is a must listen.
