And Nothing Fell Apart – Reimagining Hustle with Dr. Camila Williams

Reimagining Hustle with Dr. Camila Williams

My big takeaway:

Be willing to fail.

Dr. Camila Williams is a mindset expert, board certified psychologist, and cognitive behavioral specialist who has specialized in the field of perfectionism, anxiety, and stress management for over 10 years. As a “Perfectionist in Recovery,” and mother-of-three she understands only too well the delicate balance between the strive for excellence and crippling self-doubt. Working with her, high achievers learn how to break the shackles of self-doubt, limiting beliefs, and procrastination to truly live into their gifts and drive without always second guessing themselves. 

In this episode, Camila and I talk about therapy vs life coaching, the mental load of moms, and how it really is ok to let go of things.
