898. How To Get What You Want with Julie Solomon

I’m joined by brand expert, educator, podcaster, and now author Julie Solomon. Julie’s book Get What You Want: How to Go From Unseen to Unstoppable is all about stepping into your power and cracking open so you can shine and fulfill your ultimate purpose. Julie and I discuss how to show up authentically online while still respecting your own boundaries, and learning how to share from a scar, not a wound. We’ve both done a lot of work to overcome limiting beliefs that we had about money, and Julie shares a really powerful story about how she worked through the deep shame that she had around her secret debt. Julie is also a pro at pitching and getting what she wants, so I ask her to break down exactly how she’s built that muscle and her advice about where to start.
