78 How Women Can Play Big + Why It’s So Hard, with Tara Mohr

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.



The Cravings Whisperer Podcast with Alexandra Jamieson

Hello my clan of the crave bears! Welcome back! On today’s show we are going to be talking about what our cravings are for speaking our truth. Our desires for sharing our big ideas and how challenging it is, especially for women. I know we got some cool dudes that listen to the show but this really speaks to the female issue of playing small.

The next Cravings Cleanse is going to start on April 14th. I really want you all to be aware of it. I’m putting out a three-part video training series that you can sign up for. I will talk more about this next week. Make sure you are on my newsletter list at so that you get the announcement when this video training series is coming out. It’s going to be so awesome! I was talking to one of my cravings cleanse members from this last craving cleanse and she is having these feelings of overwhelm, like she has no time for herself. I told her that she needs me time like she needs air! But when you make this stand for me time you will be a better woman. And this ties in with the show today with Tara Mohr. We women are afraid to speak up and say what we need. We are so use to being that person that everyone else needs. It’s so hard especially as women which is why I wanted to have Tara Mohr on the show.

Tara Mohr’s new book “Playing Big” is so good. I love this book! She is an expert on women’s leadership and well-being. She helps women play bigger in sharing their voice and bringing forward their ideas into work and into life. So the great thing about Tara Mohr is that I loved this interview so much and I loved her book so much that I said to her that I would love to give a free copy of her book to all my swag bag winners this year.
