Today we are talking about one of my most favourite things to discuss — how to be an audacious woman! One of the key qualities that I’ve noticed that distinguish entrepreneurs who are absolutely killing it from those who say they’ve “already tried everything” is the willingness to step outside the norm, a willingness to be uncomfortable, and the ability to take bold risks.
My guest today, Chana Ross, is someone whom I deeply respect for her audaciousness, risk-taking personality, and level-headedness. She is definitely no stranger to making bold decisions, stepping into discomfort, and saying, “Hell yes!” when an opportunity comes her way. She is a pelvic health physiotherapist, clinic owner, business coach, podcast host, mother of four, and a pioneer of the virtual practice space.
In this episode, we unpack every aspect of what it takes to be an audacious woman. Chana shares her personal story and career journey, how to know when it is the right time to make an uncomfortable choice, how to live life on your own terms, how to become more decisive and trust yourself, and the key pieces you need to put in place to become more confident, bold, and audacious!

CALL TO ACTION
Confidence is not a quality that you are simply given; it is always something that is earned. It is a byproduct of two steps: 1) Making the decision to be courageous; 2) As a result of that courageousness, you develop competence. Competence is what gives us that confidence.
Let us know over on my Instagram @DrMeghanWalker what you are doing to take courageous action and earn your confidence! Or, let us know about some of the courageous choices you have made in your life!
