190 | Tackling the fear of advancing upwards: why promotions can feel scary and what to do about it

One of the biggest things that stops women from pursuing leadership and executive positions is fear of the unknown.  When you’re stepping into a newer, bigger role, there are SO many unknowns – and if you struggle with impostor syndrome in your current role, advancing upwards can sometimes feel undesirable and overwhelming.


In this week’s episode, I’m sharing a perspective that I hope will normalize the fear AND encourage you to dream big and reach for more if professional growth and upwards promotions is something you desire.  I hope to give you permission to OWN your desire for growth, and go after it, EVEN IF it feels like a stretch.  Because the truth is – just because it’s a stretch – doesn’t mean it’s too much of a stretch for you.
