In this episode…
Ella Glasgow was a voice coach for years. She was really good at it and it was easy…but she didn’t really love it. She knew she was meant for more, but was terrified of pursuing what was really calling her. A war between what she was doing and what she was meant to be doing was raging in her mind.
There was a fear of taking a risk, rooted in an earlier experience of being shot down by a former employer. Finally, though, she realized she needed to do what she asked her clients to do—get clear on what she wanted, make a game plan to get there, and push beyond the fears to make it happen.
