In the Spotlight with Tanya Geisler is a weekly live show that shines a light on some of the biggest mindset challenges facing leaders and entrepreneurs today in their lives and in their work.
This week's guest is Vanessa Mentor. Vanessa Mentor moves in the world as a Black Haitian Woman, Mom, Words Lover & Story Catalyst. She strongly believes that we all come to earth with the inner wisdom and personal resources that we need to live life with more grace and ease. Through her work, Vanessa creates sacred practices & experiences for women in their 40's who've left their person behind and now want to Become & Live Unrestrained in their Body + Mind + Soul.
WHAT WE TALKED ABOUT:
The Impostor Complex and how it can get wrapped up in our body beliefs
Is my story worth sharing?
How to create stillness to be inside of yourself and connect with yourself
How to truly listen and gain answers and wisdom for questions that we face everyday
How becoming a mom was a catalyst moment for Vanessa
How to decide if you should share a particular story
I do this work to help people come to the understanding of who they are and why they are here, and that they have all the answers inside. This I believe hugely.
I’ve always loved stories, these words bring affirmation to our own lives… I can be a witness of my own story and pass it on because I believe in legacy.
Draw into your body because there is wisdom there.
(In relation to the Impostor Complex) There’s so much focused on the way we look, then our physical appearance becomes how we see ourselves and determines our worth.
“Creativity is not benign.” - Brene Brown
(Vulnerability vs. Intimacy) Vulnerability as a means to connection and intimacy as accessibility… use this as a lense of sharing when thinking about if a story should be told or not.
LINKS AND THINGS TALKED ABOUT
Each week Tanya and a guest star (an expert in their zone of genius) take on a topic that is UP in their work, or in the work of their clients. (Can’t step into your starring role when perfectionism, procrastination, boundaries, comparison, people pleasing, diminishment, and overwhelm are in the way, right?)
We’ll take your questions and bring our best answers. It’s part coaching, part exploration, part Q+A, all delicious.
