People, particularly women, tend to apologize for things we have absolutely no reason to be sorry for. While saying you’re sorry in little moments like needing to get past someone who’s in your way in the grocery store doesn’t seem like a big deal, it actually is. It creates a mind climate that is filled with unnecessary guilt and shame and that’s the opposite of how I want you to feel.

I want you to make bold decisions for yourself, by yourself, without having to ask permission, and without feeling the need to apologize for any reason.

In this audio workshop, I’m discussing why you should only apologize when you’re truly sorry, how apologizing when you have nothing to be sorry about is an act of devaluing and disempowering yourself, how you can begin to change this negative habit, and more!

  • Why this time of year is always an odd time for Ivy

  • How saying you’re sorry is getting in your way
