EP 8: Jodi Flynn – Finding and Claiming Your Value




EP 8: Jodi Flynn – Finding and Claiming Your Value

“If I were to pick an experience that showcased for me the intrinsic value I bring, it would be my experience being certified as a coach. In our second training weekend, I could see how much I learned and how naturally the role of coach suited me.”

– Jodi Flynn


Becoming a Better Coach and Claiming Your Value

5:00 What did Jodi do to become a better coach while she was still in training? She developed her intuition through a course with one of her mentors. She explains why she’s spending most of her time reading books that are NOT about becoming a better coach. Listen to find out what she IS reading.

10:45 We discuss how to distinguish between an actual fear that something is really dangerous, and the fear that comes with stepping into your greatness. She asks herself, “If I don’t do this, will I regret it later?”

How an Overachiever Tames the Inner Critic

18:00 The inner critic! This is the voice in your head that tries to keep you from achieving great things. When Jodi was writing her second book, her critic said, “Who do you think you are?” and “You’re not a Phd. in Psychology!” She told her critic to pipe down, because this book had to get written!

20:00 What are Jodi’s future plans? She reveals what’s coming, plus her deep knowledge of her life purpose—helping others find their purpose.

One of Jodi’s favorite quotes


21:36. The work she’s doing is a lot of fun. But when it became about her ego…

22:41: How did she get motivated to write her books? She asked herself, “If I don’t write this book, will I regret it?”

23:58 The Lightning Round

25:02: Jodi believed she had nothing to offer. As soon as she discovered she did, she took action.

Jodi’s view on failure? Don’t look at these things at failures, look at them as experiments. We’re all scientists trying things out. She learned to stay in communication with her audience to figure out what they need from her.

26:00 Best advice for a woman who has given up her value in the past: Take good care of yourself. Take baby steps. There’s a strong connection between how we treat ourselves and how worthy we think we are.

27:46 Jodi describes her personalized self care plan: energize, renew, and restore.

30: She talks about her favorite books. Can you guess which ones she loves? (They’re my favorite, too).

32:27: One of her favorite quotes is, “A bird does not sing because it has an answer. It sings because it has a song.” attributed to Maya Angelou. It’s not that it’s gonna be perfect. It’s that you have something to contribute. So contribute it, say it, do it…
