253: Discovering Your Feminine Genius with LiYana Silver

Tags: , , ,

Hi, I’m Alex!

If you need a little help to start playing by your own rules, there’s a few ways we can work together more closely.


We know that every woman’s worst critic is . . . herself. It’s a sad but true fact. Why do we spend so much time and energy berating and judging ourselves for falling short of our perfectionist ideals? Why can’t we embrace the truth of who we were created to be and who we have become through the ups and downs of life? This might be just the interview that you need to hear today.

In this episode, we discuss some juicy topics for women. What if you took the energy you spend on self-improving and bashing your body in chasing impossible standards of perfectionism and channeled that energy into things that truly bring you alive? Join us!

LiYana Silver is a coach, teacher, speaker, and author of Feminine Genius. She has helped countless women find the full expression of their feminine strengths in work, love, and life. Her book has been out for a while, but the audiobook version was just released. LiYana is an NLP practitioner who also loves to dance and paint.
