3 Key Takeaways:

  1. The Enneagram is best personality test out of all of them if you truly want to experience transformation. 
  2. To be more powerful we need to connect with our authentic selves and understand what we actually want. As women, so many of us are out of touch with our desires so it's extremely unlikely we'll ever get what we really want. 
  3. You don't think twice about gushing about and recommending your favorite sushi restaurant. You don't need to give yourself a pep talk before you tell a friend about it. Use that same energy to sell yourself and your business.
