Hello my fellow recovering perfectionists! You are going to love today’s conversation, with guest Kara Loewentheil, about how to truly create self confidence by rewiring your brain and thoughts, and letting go of perfectionist fantasies around New Year's resolutions.

Kara Loewentheil, J.D., is a Master Certified Coach, Host of the top-rated podcast UnF*ck Your Brain, and creator of The Clutch: A feminist mindset revolution. A graduate of Yale College and Harvard Law School, she did what every Ivy League feminist lawyer should do: Quit a prestigious academic career to become a life coach! Her Jewish parents have almost recovered; the fact that she built her business from zero to seven figures in three years didn't hurt. Five years after leaving the law she has taught thousands of women how to identify the ways that sexist socialization impacts their brains, and how to literally rewire their thought patterns to create true authentic confidence from within.

In this episode we discuss:

  • Kara’s journey from lawyer to becoming a master certified coach and starting her own business, podcast and coaching community.

  • How thoughts create our feelings and impact our actions, and how to use the thought ladder to positively change this.

  • New Year’s Resolutions: Are they good goals or perfectionist fantasies?

  • Three “women’s empowerment” sayings that actually do a disservice for us in truly being empowered as women.

  • What it truly takes to accept and love your body at any size.

  • How to work towards neutral beliefs about your body to help change your body image.

  • Kara shares about her amazing podcast, Unfuck Your Brain, and her coaching community, the Clutch.

  • How Kara practices wellness without obsession.
