Do You Have Trouble Asking For What You Need?
Do you have trouble asking for what you need? Start with acknowledging your fears and realizing that you are holding yourself back! Know that you deserve more and that you need to step out of your comfort zone.
Today, we’re going to discuss something that many women find difficult: asking for what they need. If you’re nodding your head in agreement right now, you’re not alone. It can be scary to be vulnerable, and the fear of judgment often holds us back. But we have a special guest who will inspire you with her story of overcoming fear and asking for what she needed.
Joining us is Alvina Peat, a teacher, coach, keynote speaker, and author. She is the Founder of Her Empowerment Retreat and Resources (H.E.R.), a platform dedicated to empowering women through various programs and resources. Alvina’s book, which she showcased on YouTube, is a must-read for anyone seeking personal and professional growth.
Her mission is to empower women to recognize their worth and find the strength to ask for what they deserve. No one should settle for less than they desire or need.
We welcome Alvina to the show and we’re thrilled to have her here to share her story and gifts with our audience.
