Welcome back to She Sells Radio for another solo episode. After so many amazing interview episodes with the best of the best, I really want to dive into themes close to my heart. Today, I'm particularly eager to chat about a powerful concept that recently took shape in a book titled Permission to be Powerful, co-authored by yours truly and members of the mastermind. This book, hot off the presses since January 17th, invites you to think about a profound question: What would it look like for you to give yourself permission to be in your full power in all aspects of your life? Power is a loaded term to a lot of people. And it can make us feel really uncomfortable. But it's not about defiance. It’s a conscious choice to be at the center of your life, steering your destiny with intention. I share my personal journey in this episode, and share the internal struggles to remain a lone wolf, as well as the reflection that led to embracing a path of increased leadership in my business. We explore the notion of surface-level safety in hiding and the transformative power of getting massively uncomfortable. Join me in this exploration of self-permission, questioning societal programming, and the beautiful journey of learning to trust yourself.  The book, Permission to be Powerful, features diverse perspectives on this topic, and I am so excited to share it with you.   Show Notes: [2:44] - Elyse co-authored a book called Permission to be Powerful with members of her mastermind. [4:40] - Power is a loaded word to a lot of people. It means that you know you are in control of your destiny and your fate. You are at the center of your life. [6:50] - Personal power is not about defiance. It’s about you consciously choosing and operating out of the sense of controlling your destiny. [8:34] - We have to surrender to how big things can be for us. [10:12] - Elyse has taken on a lot more leadership and experienced a lot of internal struggle. [12:14] - The wounded part of her felt safer as a lone wolf. [14:03] - It took a lot of reflection to figure out which path to take. It’s understandable why people hide. [16:08] - There’s surface level safety in hiding. [17:30] - What’s the endgame for you? [19:19] - Elyse couldn’t stop seeing the vision of the next level for her business. [21:20] - Elyse had a dream about an office space years ago and shares the experience of seeing it in person. [25:01] - You have to be willing to get massively uncomfortable. [28:40] - We can hide behind a lot of things. It’s easy and convenient to hide because you don’t have to be responsible and powerful. [30:29] - Who are you waiting for to give you permission? No one can but you. [33:01] - We don’t always stop and think for ourselves. We’ve been taught not to question anything. [35:17] - If Elyse hadn’t learned how to trust herself, she never would have learned the best path for her. [37:05] - There are so many instances in your day-to-day that are programming. [38:44] - It is easy to stop trusting yourself. But it’s a beautiful journey to go on. [40:22] - When you learn to trust yourself and think for yourself, you start making choices based on expansion and your dreams rather than safety or restriction. [42:53] - In the book, Permission to be Powerful, there are multiple authors and perspectives on this topic.   Links and Resources: Instagram  |  LinkedIn  |  YouTube She Sells with Elyse Archer Home Page Abundance Mini Course Join the $10K Club Apply for the $50K Club Mastermind Permission to be Powerful by Elyse Archer
