Victim Mindset with Christina Montalvo

September 4, 2018

This is the first episode in what will be an ongoing series with one of my favourite people and best friends, Christina Montalvo!

I’m over the moon to introduce you to this incredible powerhouse of a woman.  Christina in an anti-diet and body image coach teaching women to be total badasses by building incredible confidence without all of the dieting that will keep us stuck.

It’s funny, neither one of us have ever really thought of ourselves as phone talkers, but for some reason every time we jump on the phone it ends up being 2 – 3 hours without even noticing time go by.  Usually we hit on such intense topics and get into discussions that we agree we wouldn’t be able to have with anyone else in our lives, we want to start letting you in on some of the things that come up.

Buckle up, because you’re about to get uncomfortable AF and pushed out of your comfort zone.  

I believe everyone needs someone in their lives who will call you out on your bullshit, challenge your limitations, be your biggest cheerleader, and be comfortable having discussions about the kinds of polarizing topics that most people avoid.  If you don’t already have someone like that in your life, then this podcast episode might be exactly what you need.

Plus, Christina and I are both sharing some pretty personal examples of times we have played the victim in our own lives and have had to change the story in order to see a shift and move forward.

This episode was originally a Facebook Live in the Room to Grow Podcast Facebook group, and we talked about such important stuff that we knew we had to share it!  It’s also airing on Christina’s wildly popular podcast, The Confidence Project, on the same date.
