In this episode of Lean the F*ck Out, we talk with Brooke Sprowl about how she is growing a therapy practice in Los Angeles, My LA Therapy, and her soon to be released book: Why You Should Date Emotionally Unavailable Men: Use Your Unhealthy Relationships to Transform Yourself and Your Love Life.
In this episode, we talk with therapist and female entrepreneur Mabel Yiu about self care for women entrepreneurs. As female business owners, taking care of ourselves is usually our lowest priority. We know the oxygen mask analogy for airplane safety but rarely apply that to how we care for ourselves in our business and personal lives. Mabel shares tools and techniques to recognize our patterns and make changes to take care of ourselves.
Mabel has seen many women in her therapy practice who struggle with what she calls a “yes woman” mentality. In the interview, she talks about six different types of “yes women” and her tried and true technique for how to battle your “yes woman” mentality, if you identify with one of the types.
