Marlene McNally: How to embrace risk and uncertainty when you run a coaching business

December 8, 2021

My today’s guest is Marlene McNally, a life coach who helps successful women to drop the stories that still hold them back so they can live bold, unapologetic lives.

We talk about perfectionism, our inherent desire to stay in control versus the unpredictability of running a business, embracing failure, and the importance of not being a bully to yourself. If you identify as a perfectionist or a control freak, this episode is for you.

The question is: Are you willing to keep failing until you get the number of clients or the income you desire?
