EP. 017 | “I wanted to show my kids that they should go out and want all the best things and not settle for anything less.”

Today’s guest, Heather Vickery beams. Her energy, passion, and excitement for life just oozes out of her. But it wasn’t always that way.

When you’re not connected with the truth of who you are, life feels out of alignment - and that can make for a miserable existence.

This was the experience faced by today’s podcast guest - just four short years ago.

A slow, but steady period of discovery shocked Heather into realizing her life was a lie. After a decade of marriage with four beautiful kids, Heather realised she’d ‘married the wrong gender’. It was a shocking discovery and one that took a while to process. It also became the trigger that forced Heather to reevaluate everything and laid the foundations for the life she enjoys today.

In this deeply personal episode, Heather talks about what it was like to reshape her identity and learn to tap into her heart and soul so she could discover who she really was. It’s essential listening for anyone who’s committed to exploring and expressing their full self.

Facing fear gives us the opportunity to be brave and when we embrace bravery - thats empowering!

Heather now works as a coach helping clients unearth their authentic self and believe in their own power - so they can enjoy a life well lived and a business well run.

In this awesome podcast, Heather goes deep on some of the strategies she uses with clients to get results. Covering everything from moving through fear to the questions you need to ask to step into the person you need to be, I dare you to listen to this interview and not be changed - even a little.

I feel so grateful for having Heather on the Stay Grounded Podcast. She dropped so much gold and shared so many fresh insights, I’m confident she’s going to rock your world.

So listen and discover some powerful building blocks that will inspire you to choose YOU - and start living a life of happiness, fulfilment, and possibilities..
