Lisa Bilyeu is one of the co-founders of the billion-dollar Quest Nutrition company, as well as the co-founder and president of Impact Theory Studios. In her new book Radical Confidence, she describes how she broke through her insecurities and self-doubt, pursued her entrepreneurial dreams, and built up her confidence in the process. The journey of going from homemaker to global business leader hasn’t always been linear, but Lisa shares how she’s learned to move through fear and strategize support around her growth. She gives us a peek inside her book, including a concept she calls emotional sobriety, and we discuss what it looks like to find lessons and empowerment in rejection. Lisa also talks about what she’s currently working through emotionally with the release of her book and why it’s so important to detach your self-worth from business outcomes.
