Review of the Week:

 

“I just listened to Lori’s Go All In episode and my soul is literally shook. I shared it with my entire team for some daily inspiration and I cannot wait for them to listen. I have been feeling very anxious in the past couple of weeks and days because I am definitely living in the grey and Lori’s podcast shook me, made me realize that what is keeping me from my island paradise is the boat I am currently living on. She has inspired me to close all the windows, get down to work (for a while) and I will definitely use this episode as motivation when I am doubting myself as I embark to put in some hard work to reach my island! Can’t wait to check out other podcasts soon! Great work Lori Harder and thank you!”

Quotes

"It’s about really making an empowered decision from your intuition. “No, there’s something that’s actually out of alignment here that I don’t want to be a part of.” I feel like if we drop into that space and we become anchored in our truth, there’s nothing that we can really get overly triggered by because we know we’re listening to our soul and not running around in fear because of our mind.”

“Really taking this entire month just celebrating everything that’s been created, and to be with myself and all of that process to just reflect on all the growth, all the evolution of things in business, and just be in deep gratitude and celebration.”

 

Caty Pasternak believes that we are all meant to EXPERIENCE our power as conscious creators and to live with radical authenticity, love, and abundance. Within her first year, she created a multiple six-figure coaching business. And it wasn’t because of a fancy marketing tactic…..it was because of my embodiment, creativity, and energy.

 

She utilizes hypnotherapy, NLP, biz strategy, intuitive development, and quantum physics to support women through personal and business transformations in her private mentorship and mastermind programs. Caty also creates content for multiple channels, as well as posting weekly videos to her Youtube channel, and her podcast, Sexy Soul Radio.
