Show Notes

Sandy Gledhill is a Corporate Problem Solver who has dedicated her career to helping high-performing leaders unlock the secrets to even greater levels of success. Her years spent coaching executives, entrepreneurs, and influencers uncovered a secret that is harbored by many high achievers; the hidden fears that often restrict them to living smaller lives than those for which they were destined. 

Sandy was well-acquainted with this particular secret, as she too had perfected the art of looking like a risk-taking success story while being plagued by a host of debilitating fears that were tearing her apart inside. In this episode, Sandy shares some of the misconceptions about fear and how you can start to live fearlessly.
