So for the penultimate episode of Season 2, we are going back into the Mind Yer Business archives with a rebroadcasting of an episode from way back in August 2019 with Marina from Transformations.I am seeing more and more business owners (myself included!) struggling with the anxiety as a result of everything we have all been through in the last year and a bit, so I thought it would be a great opportunity to revisit this episode that many newer listeners may have missed. Marina is an anxiety specialist and in this episode we discuss everything from what causes anxiety to how it can hold us back as business owners. Marina also walks me through some techniques that can help to ground you in moments of anxiety and answers some listener questions!Check out Marinas website here – www.nlptransformations.org.ukFollow her on Instagram here – www.instagram.com/nlptransformations/Follow her on Facebook here – www.facebook.com/NlpTransformations————Be sure to drop us a review and subscribe wherever you listen if you are enjoying the podcast so far.
