janet-whalen-courage-confidence-claimthestage-podcastThis episode will surprise you!

You always hear having confidence in yourself will propel you to take risks and accomplish your goals. But what if you could get yourself to take action without confidence? On today’s episode, I interview Janet Whalen, a CoActive career transition, courage and confidence coach at BeAmbitiousForHer.com – a coaching practice for mid-career women.

We discuss:

  • why women should focus on courage, not confidence
  • steps women should take if they’re not feeling courageous
  • where confidence comes from
  • mistakes women make when it comes to doing things that scare them
  • results you can expect to see when you try things you think you can’t do
  • what confidence feels like

Janet also hosts She Breaks the Mold – the podcast for women who are ambitious for themselves and each other at work. I was a recent guest on that show and we talked about the importance of finding your voice.
