EPISODE SNEAK PEEK


“If you’re engaging in the behaviors of numbing out. If you’re using alcohol or food or exercise or relationships to run away from the feeling and take the edge off. If you’re isolating and hiding out, meaning you don’t reach out for help when shit hits the fan in your life. If you’re perfecting or performing or proving, overachieving, self sabotaging. If you are participating in those behaviors, then you are doing it in an effort to avoid shame. Bottom line. So essentially shame is running your life and you don’t know it.”


Andrea Owen is an author, mentor, and professional certified life coach who helps high-achieving women let go of perfectionism, control, and isolation and choosing courage and confidence instead. She has helped thousands of women manage their inner-critic to create loving connections and live their most kick-ass life.

She is the proud author of How To Stop Feeling Like Shit: 14 Habits That Are Holding You Back From Happiness (Seal Press/Hachette Books) which has been translated into 16 languages, as well as her inaugural book, 52 Ways to Live a Kick-Ass Life: BS Free Wisdom to Ignite Your Inner Badass and Live the Life You Deserve, (Adams Media/Simon & Schuster).

When she’s not juggling her full coaching practice or hosting retreats, Andrea is busy competing in triathlons, chasing her 11-year-old son and 9-year-old daughter or making out with her husband, Jason. She is also a retired roller derby player having skated under the name “Veronica Vain”.
