Loving the life we live; birthright or privilege?

Loving the life we live; birthright or privilege?

“She designed a life she loved…” it’s not just a cute sign from Home Goods. There are plenty of people who pursue the life and work they love. I once thought it was a bit precious and indulgent to say things like that. I am a worker - a put-your-head-down and make-things-happen - kind of girl. No wonder I developed some pretty unhealthy coping mechanisms!
So I ask Lia Venet for her perspective; she’s spent her entire adult life designing a full, non-conforming, and delicious existence. I admire her manner of living in the best of ways. We discuss the tyranny of socially approved boxes and the word “should.” We wonder aloud if it is a function of privilege to even have discussions like this. And, we both acknowledge that the best life comes from doing our own growth work; triggers and pain points may just be golden portals that take us where we ultimately want to be.

Our guest: LIA VENET’s vision is for ALL women to understand their divine brilliance, cultivating trust in sisterhood circles and sharing their truth in the world.

Lia is an Authentic Speaker, Co-Author of Wild and Wise Women around the world – Ten Inspiring Women Share their Feminine Fire in “365 Days of Gratitude.”  Beside her PhD in life experience, she is a Certified Transformational Coach (TCM), Certified Holistic Health Coach (IIN), Sacred Depths trained coach, relationship expert (assisted with John Gray for 7 years) a master Woman’s Speak enroller.  She is a connector, organizer, and gatherer of women, Women’s Circle Facilitator, Founder of Inner Compass Circles that includes organizing empowerment retreats for women.
