Welcome to Episode 109 of Building My Legacy.

In this podcast, we talk with confidence coach Rebecca Haydon who works primarily with female entrepreneurs to help them become visible and confident online. Rebecca’s background is interesting because she left a successful career in show business — having toured with big musicals all over the world — when she realized that she was always “playing someone else.” As she moved to teaching dance and then to blogging, she realized that coaching women for confidence allowed her to use her performing side but also “get to be me.” Our discussion with Rebecca addresses why so many people — especially women — struggle with confidence. She emphasizes to her clients that, although you have the answers inside of you, you should never be afraid to ask for help.  Her advice is helpful for all of us whether you’re struggling with today’s uncertain economy, moving into a new phase of your life or building your legacy.


So if you want to know:

  • Why your biggest challenge may be thinking “I’m not good enough.”
  • The role body confidence plays — especially for women
  • How to feel the fear and do it anyway
  • The importance of “acting as if” your goal is already happening

About Rebecca Haydon

When Rebecca Haydon left her career in entertainment and became a dance teacher, she felt like a failure. Yet she realized that, in teaching children to dance and eventually choreographing musicals for them, she felt empowered and, for the first time, truly proud of herself. She used what she had learned from her career in entertainment and teaching to discover how she could help others who were struggling with mental health issues. That led her to neuro-linguistic programming and hypnosis. Today her successful coaching business helps female entrepreneurs unleash unstoppable confidence. She helps them “show up as the expert” and create more visibility online through video, social media strategy and mindset magic to attract their ideal clients. Her Facebook group is The Female Confidence Club, and she can also be found on Instagram, YouTube and LinkedIn.
