Ms Independent

By Renu Chopra

A podcast hosted by Renu Chopra to discover the depths of independence and learn from women bossing the game.

Being independent has always been a key goal of mine, wanting to explore, live and do things on my own terms. However, it can have a completely different meaning for other people.

So in this space, I sit and chat with various different women from entrepreneurs, mindset coaches to industry professionals, to uncover their career journeys, lessons learned and their meaning of independence.

From each EP I hope you can reflect and take away a few gems to add to your own journey.

Do you sometimes struggle feeling confident? Do you ever react to things, but are unsure sure why? Have you ever considered mindset coaching?

What is it? How does it work? What's the difference between coaching and therapy? How can you find the right coach?   Expect an episode leaving you feeling empowered and clued up on how you can gain control of your mindset and feel more confident.  FIND OUT MORE Hattie MacAndrews: www.instagram.com/hattie_macandrews/  Ms Independent: https://www.instagram.com/msindependent_podcast/
