Learn how to leverage the power of your true self, recognise the false self, and why this is important with Medium & Intuitive advisor Shawn Phelps

Knowing her passion for journalism, Shawn Phelps pursued journalism in college to fulfil her dreams. However, anxiety led her to encounter problems in coping with school work. She took a break from school and eventually graduated from journalism at the age of 28. During the break, Shawn tried different jobs, moved to Australia and did freelance writing while travelling.

She is now a medium & advisor, helping independent thinkers who feel called to blaze their own trail, live life on their own terms, and do good things that matter. In this podcast, I had a chat with Shawn about her route to self discovery and the differences between the true self and false self.
