Sharing Ourselves + Our Work Imperfectly with Kelly Elizabeth Scott

Whether revealing a life-long dream to a loved one, launching an important project, or putting yourself out there on social media, sharing ourselves and our work with the world in an authentic (read: imperfect) way can be one of the most pants-crappingly scary challenges we face in this life. In this episode, we talk with Kelly Elizabeth Scott, fitness trainer, transformational coach, and eating disorder + autoimmune disease warrior, about how she stepped out of the shadows of perfectionism to create her dream life, business, and passion project, The Wellness Boulevard.

If “I’m not ready” and “It’s not good enough” are your default settings, then this is the conversation for you.
