Self-Care for Extremely Busy Women

Nov 15, 2022

When women feel powerful they are confident, strong, yet also compassionate and embodying the divine feminine. Suzanne talks to Sharon Melnick PhD about her work as a woman’s empowerment coach.


How powerful are you? And what would it take to become more powerful? This is the focus of today’s show, as I begin with an essay I wrote about getting through painful transitions—and the power that can be gleaned from such.


Then I speak to a great guest, Sharon Melnick PhD, who had a lot to say about why we don’t stand in our power and how to get back there. It’s a process she calls becoming strong in yourself. (A resonant phrase!) Sharon also talks about her new book, Your Power: React Less, Regain Control, Raise Others.


While chatting, I learned:

  • What it takes for women to be powerful
  • Setting boundaries within yourself
  • Why we react harshly when we’re triggered by something—and how to deal with it
  • Hot to avoid being reactive in general
  • Starter ideas for anyone who wants to live more powerfully


It’s a great conversation… I hope you enjoy it as much as I did!


My best as ever,
