Ep 30 - Jennie Allen: The Risks Worth Taking
Jennie Allen joins Paula for a very fun and enlightening conversation about taking the right risks, following the path of most resistance, pursuing a calling that takes you beyond your comfort zone, and knowing when to go for it. Jennie talks about her journey to becoming a writer and the risks she and others took in creating "IF:Gathering," which brings women together all over the world. She recalls the time she found herself alone on the bathroom floor and why this moment changed everything for her, and set her on a new path towards a calling she never saw coming. She also talks about the impact adoption has had on her and her family, and the struggle of redefining yourself outside of motherhood. The New York Times bestselling author also chats about the study behind her book, "Get Out of Your Head," which dives deeper into the power of mind-mapping and taking back control of your thoughts.
