About The Podcast
Hailey Magee wants you to stop people pleasing and instead.. create an empowered life. Hailey is a Certified Life Coach who helps individuals conquer the people-pleasing pattern, set empowered boundaries, and master the art of speaking their truth. She has worked with over 100 clients across the United States, Canada, Yemen, France, Ireland, South Africa, and more. Today we talk about the moment you realize you are a people pleaser, the awareness it takes to transition from this pattern and how communication is the key to unlocking a new way of being and relating. We dig deep in relationships, the importance of "messy" communication, the benefits to others when you decide to work on yourself and how to use conflict to drive relationships deeper.
Amy Nelson has become one of my personal heroes. She unapologetically shows the world that career and family are intertwined. She brings her daughter, Holland, with her to board meetings and believes the conversation surrounding whether women can "have it all" is sexist. Amy is the founder and CEO of The Riveter, a modern union for working women. A graduate of Emory University and the NYU School of Law, Amy practiced corporate litigation with a focus on high-profile First Amendment matters for over a decade in New York City and Seattle. She also served on President Obama's National Finance Committee where she co-chaired Gen44, the under 40 fundraising arm of the campaign. Additionally, Amy previously worked with President Carter's The Carter Center.
Valerie Gangas lost her mother in 2011 and experienced profound life-shattering grief.

She specializes in helping people make radical shifts in their self-perception to gain a deeper understanding of who they are, so they can genuinely thrive and unleash their magic more fully into the world.
