Ep. 11: How To Talk To Your Family About Your Career

Show Notes

Knowing how to talk to your family about your career can be a landmine filled with all kinds of emotional pitfalls: shame, insecurity, trying to impress them, a need for validation, and a lack of transparency about where you’re actually at and why you keep doing what you’re doing. In this episode, Risa and Steve break down how you can approach and communicate with your loved ones from a place of compassion, setting healthy boundaries, releasing expectations, and claiming artistic empowerment by taking full ownership- without apology- of what you do and why. Before you go home for the holidays or engage with your family in any way that may feel loaded, have a listen!

“You can show up with an understanding that you might have different views (from your family). When you lean into those conversations from a place of authority- and offer vulnerability, honesty, and authentic, truthful expression- it changes everything.”
