Andy and I talk about how to step out of your comfort zone and reach for your dreams. He shares his backstory of being a shy student at College and reveals what it took to get over his fear and trepidation around speaking – whether in the classroom, at the office or on stage.
We touch on the imposter syndrome (that most of us have) and we both have similar stories when it came to avoiding situations that we found challenging. Whether it’s networking, going for a job interview, delivering difficult news or being in social situations we all will have moments when we will have to reach within to take the steps and have the conversations necessary to move forward. Andy shares the reasons we it is so hard to step out of our comfort zones and he helps us demystify the “why” behind why it is so difficult to reach beyond what we know for sure.

Andy shares wonderful tools and strategies that we can all use to move out of the imposter syndrome, and he reminds us that it’s perfectly acceptable to not know everything, but it is important to keep the curiosity and willingness to learn.
