# 74 The Brave Journal|Corporate World|Imposter Syndrome|Bravery|Vanessa McDonald

Nowhere To Go But Up

Joining me today is coach and author, Vanessa McDonald. Vanessa spent seventeen years working in corporate, starting in communication as an intern and working her way up the ladder. At the top, her learning and growth stopped which led her to leave and follow her own passions. This got her to write “The Brave Journal,” a journal which allows the user to plan for effective goals. Vanessa tells me about her background in corporate, why she left, the origins of the journal, and why imposter syndrome shelved the idea for a few months. * We also discuss becoming a coach in a crowded market, where she lives, healthcare in Canada, and how things will change coming out of our new normal. * Vanessa's Bio: * After 17 years in corporate, I radically changed my life & career to follow my passion and help others follow theirs too. Even though times are scary, I know that with the right mindset and by taking courageous action, there is a bright future ahead for many who are feeling frightened right now. The Brave Journal is a practical guide of the steps that I took to transition out of a 9-5 and become an entrepreneur. I now coach to help others do the same. * Vanessa's Website: * https://couragecreator.com/ * Instagram: * https://www.instagram.com/brave_journal/ * This Episode Was Sponsored By: * http://www.jhaleemapparel.com/ * Enter Promo Code nwtgbupod For 10% Off Your First Order. * JH Apparel & Promotions is a distributor of a wide variety of promotional and branding products.
