1048. Practicing Unfiltered Authenticity With Author Rachel Luna

Rachel Luna is the friend that I turn to when I need a reminder that epic things happen when I step into my truth and lead with authenticity. Rachel is a Certified Master Neuroscience Coach and author of Permission to Offend, which is the ultimate guide for understanding your beliefs and unapologetically owning them. 

In our conversation, we unpack the power of connecting with your core values, even at the risk of making other people uncomfortable. Rachel highlights some of the stories that she’s had to break out of and how she creates space to evolve. She also shares advice for anyone who’s avoiding a tough conversation, including how to set a compassionate foundation and neutralize the emotional charge.
