Today’s guest is Mollie West Duffy. Mollie is the co-author of the Wall Street Journal bestselling book, No Hard Feelings: The Secret Power of Embracing Emotions at Work. She’s an expert in organizational development and leadership development. You may also recognize her from her highly popular Instagram page, @lizandmollie, where she and her co-author, Liz Fosslien, share on all things life, mental health, feelings, and more. The occasion for today’s chat is their latest book, Big Feelings: How to Be Okay When Things Are Not Okay. And I think y’all are gonna get so much out of this discussion.     

We talk about our emotional wellbeing, the strength in finding the courage to be open about your vulnerability, why we shouldn’t discredit our achievements no matter how little they may seem, using envy to push ourselves to become better, what can we do to prevent burnout, and so much more!
