What happens when you’ve got massive dreams, but you’re told that they’re “unrealistic”, and you should just focus on becoming a housewife?

Well, if you’re Lisa Bilyeu, my guest on today’s show, you follow those dreams anyway, and accidentally build a billion dollar business — and the life of your dreams — in the process!

There’s so much we can learn from Lisa’s journey of transformation. And in this hugely inspiring interview, you’ll discover the unique decisions, beliefs, mindset shifts and habits that have helped this powerhouse woman become a leader in the world of personal development and the hero of her own life.

Tune in to discover how to life-hack your way to radical confidence, why she intentionally chose not to have children (and why she wishes more people talked openly about this topic), how she broke free from the cycle of people-pleasing, her epic strategies for chasing goals — even if you’re full of self doubt and have been told that they’re “not possible”, the health battle that took over her life (and how it became the catalyst for one of her businesses), why self love is so important, and why we ALL need to stop waiting for someone else to rescue us.
