How to Change Your Life & Be A Total Badass w/ Jen Sincero

“The decision to change your life is going to involve things that you’re not comfortable doing… or else you would have already done them.”
— Jen Sincero

Greetings, SuperFriends!

Today’s guest, Jen Sincero, is a total badass.

Actually, she wrote the book on being a badass. No… seriously, though.

She’s the NYT bestselling author of “You are a badass: How to stop doubting your greatness and start living an awesome life,” and a bunch of other books, including one interesting titled “a straight girls guide to sleeping with chicks.” With titles like that, coaching clients who themselves have gone on to become new york times bestsellers, an upcoming and much anticipated podcast, and features in the new york times, HBO, Bloomberg, and O magazine, I just had to get her on the show while I still could to share some of the badassness with us.

In this episode, we discuss a really broad range of topics, from discovering your life’s passion, to the value of coaches and how to find a good one, to the perks of travel for personal development, and even tips on how to maximize your income. My guest is an absolute wealth of positive energy and inspiration, and I just know this episode is going to knock your socks off.
