My guest today is Master Certified Life Coach, former women’s rights lawyer, and host of the popular podcast, Unf*ck Your Brain, Kara Loewentheil. Kara holds a B.A. from Yale and a J.D. from Harvard Law. She helps women break through their confidence issues and negative self-talk and finally put into action their true desires. Her work isn’t based on manifestation and law of attraction bs, it’s rooted in cognitive psychology-based techniques and feminist theory. Kara shares how we can decipher between helpful and unhelpful thoughts, what the two steps are to begin retraining our brains, why “fake it til you make it” is utter crap, and how to assess our thoughts throughout the day.   Contact Information: Unf*ck Your Brain Podcast 5 Day Confidence Challenge Thank you to our show sponsor, Abby Connect Abby Connect is the live receptionist service loved by small businesses.  Get your 2-week free trial and $95 off your first month at http://abbyconnect.com/genwhy Thanks for Checking Out the Show Notes and for Listening!
