Episode 13 of The F Words: Difficult conversations with Dr Leandra Brady-Walker is #Forward: Shedding labels and moving on after you fall with Angela Counsel.
What do you do when all your best laid plans fail?
What do you do when you are helping people with their health, but yours is a mess?
What do you do when you feel like you have failed?
Angela and I connected through the KPI program and share a love of natural health, I've been on both of her podcasts too, but it was an email she sent in February that really made me want to chat with her. I was struck by her honesty admitting that sometimes things don't go according to plan. As entrepreneurs and people who live our lives in the social media spotlight, it's often difficult to admit when we fall. So I thought it would be nice to have a real conversations about when things don't go according to plan.
