 Why this podcast?

Hello to your ‘Youest You’, I’m Julie.

I’ll spare you all the details (you can get my book, Get a PhD in YOU, for those) ;), but I will share that I used to struggle big time with feelings of unworthiness, not being good enough and feeling like my voice didn’t matter.
Maybe you’ve struggled with feeling ‘not enough’ too?
The way I coped was to abandon myself and numb out by overeating and abusing food.

I traded my voice in for people pleasing, self-doubt and sugar indulgence. This worked, until it didn’t. I was sneaking cookies into the bathroom (true story – did a TEDx talk all about this), helping myself to colleagues’ snacks in the office and waking up with anxiety and shame about my body and life.

I wanted this awful cycle to end.

Thankfully, I found support groups, thought leaders, coaches and healers who inspired me with the wisdom that came from their own recovery and self-work.

What I realized is that underneath the familiar desire to ‘look perfect’ or ‘have it all together’, the real you, the one you might be afraid to unleash, bravely holds the key to your joy.

I know what it’s like to feel your inner light switch turn off. I also know that you can never really lose your light. You can only dim it when it’s in the presence of fears, hurts, beliefs and unmet desires that have accumulated over the years.

Well, it’s time to turn your light on. All the way on.

You’re ready to finally free yourself from the unhealthy cycles- the overthinking, overdoing, over drinking, overeating, overextending, overworking, over…anything.

This is what will give you the power to unleash the person you want to be. The one you are meant to be. What I call, your you-est you.

Slowly, I learned how to love my whole self. All of her. I used the ingredients of compassion, truth, unconditional love, reflection, silence and heart to heal and grow. I realized that I have a voice. Today I use my voice to interview luminaries and empowering leaders, like Marie Forleo, Mel Robbins, Martha Beck, Gregg Braden and Neale Donald Walsch. I speak my voice through my books, groups and talks.

I share my voice today so that you can remember to share yours.

I hope you will share your light with me, and our growing You-est You community. I’d love to hear your insights, new thoughts and beliefs, growth moments and real, raw experiences.

After all, together we make up a greater community of support, love and connection. Our ‘We-est We’.


Our world is waiting for your light, your heart-led work and most definitely, your You-est You.
