Most of the stuff we carry with us–that mental baggage–was given to us. That stuff is NOT us.

When you start viewing limiting beliefs, childhood trauma, and the other stuff we pick up along life’s journey this way…the healing process can begin.

Today on the Dream Life is Real Life Podcast, we’re talking to Dr. Fanike-Kiara Olugbala Young, a Master Healing Alchemist empowering women to overcome trauma that is stopping them from moving forward in all areas of their lives.

Dr. Fanike first experienced childhood trauma when she was 4 years old. She wouldn’t start to understand how the trauma affected her until well into her young adulthood while taking a psychology class in college.

From there, it sent off a chain reaction of self-discovery, inner work, and healing from trauma. Listen to her story and the insights she gained from her challenges and experiences. And find out how Dr. Fanike’s inner work inspired her to shift career paths and pursue an entrepreneurial life dedicated to helping others.

Dr. Fanike also shares some great insights about limiting beliefs and self-forgiveness. You’ll learn why you should look at yourself more like a child–a child that just got put in time out.

Why is it important to do inner work as an entrepreneur? As you run your business, everything–including that stuff you’re carrying inside–gets cranked up. Learn what you need to do when this happens.
