How to Respond Powerfully When You Feel Attacked

Do you let yourself get riled up when you feel attacked or in conflict with someone?

Watch this video to learn 5 things I did when I felt attacked in a public forum.  There’s a lot in there. Send me an email with questions, comments and your own stories and strategies.

If you want to learn more about how to respond powerfully to challenging situations email me. I offer 1 on 1 mindset coaching and incorporate these strategies into my retreats, camps and classes.
