In today's episode I share the fantastic chat I had with entrepreneur Farnoosh Brock! She was such an inspiration to me when I heard her on another show, I had to talk to her myself.

To help and inspire you to live an epic life!
How Farnoosh defines empowerment:
Empowerment is the opposite of trapped, miserable, without choice, not having control of your career. It means you are free to live the lifestyle that you want.
What we talked about:
What does the word “empower” mean to you?
It means a mom can be with her kids while they grow up. It means a flexible employment. It means that you are in control.
How did you empower yourself and others?
I focus on mindset and staying away from negative thinking.
How important is the way we talk to ourselves?
Very important! Self-criticism usually does more damage than we think. It is really important that you have a healthy communication and relationship with yourself.
When you decided to do what you're doing now, what types of Resistance did you face?
What if I don't make any money? What if no one likes what I'm doing?
What does a typical day look like for you?
One of the things that helped me is changing my morning routine. Wake up. Eat Breakfast. Go for a run. Read or watch a motivational video. Meditate. Work on apps or the blog in the afternoon.
What are you doing today that will keep you moving forward tomorrow?
I take action every day. Do something every day that relates to your goals.
Since you decided to face your fears and charge forward, what have you stopped doing?
I've stopped blaming other people. I stopped bad habits like watching the news that don't help me.
How do you unwind and relax?
I meditate and do Ashtanga Yoga. I pay attention to my health and focus on self-care.
What was the last movie you saw?
Philomena at the Toronto Film Festival
EPIC Question: What is one tip, or one piece of advice you can give people who are just starting?
Trust yourself. Invest in yourself.
