Ep. 67 Recovering from burnout by being still with Carrie Severson

In this week’s episode of Speaking with Women, I have the honour of speaking with Carrie Severson. Carrie is the author of Unapologetically Enough, a self-love & burnout recovery expert and speaker. As you might have heard on previous episodes, I had my own experience with burnout and depression, and so this episode with Carrie is close to my heart. She shares her story, how this led to a 8-year journey writing a book, and the lessons learned that she now shares with women to help them avoid burnout.
