28 – S4: E3 – Confident Business Coaching with Dena Fay

What does it take to be successful? Confidence is key, right? Whether you’re an entrepreneur, a stay-at-home mom, or working the 9-to-5, in order to fully realize your calling and dreams, you’ve got to take a few risks. Unfortunately, we tend to put our dreams on the back burner because we feel like we haven’t “arrived.” We have hang-ups and mental blocks right in the way of our path to success. What can we do about them?

Today’s guest, Dena Kowlaczyk has battled all of these questions on her path to success. After dealing with body image issues and not feeling confident in her own skin, Dena noticed that these problems were beginning to encroach on her business success. She turned outward for help, only to realize that no one was really coaching business owners in owning their confidence. Dena took matters into her own hands and developed Radiant Journey Coaching, her own business where she helps women understand why they really are a business badass.

Nicole and Michelle talked to Dena about how to build confidence, take care of yourself, and run a business like a boss. The conversation is filled with useful skills, words of wisdom, and a healthy dose of laughter and, of course, Sparkle. Listen on!
