Cut the Crap: How Honesty Can Shape Your Life in the New Year with Lauren Zander

We tell ourselves a considerable amount of lies everyday. Think about it, how many promises do you make to yourself, even if it’s as simple as “I’ll get to that later”?

Imagine what could happen in our lives if we kept those promises! 

This week’s guest, Lauren Handel Zander is a life coach and Co-Founder and Chairwoman of Handel Group and it’s her mission to create radical, personal accountability. She honestly wants to help others achieve amazing things by rewriting our inner dialogue. 

She is also the author of Maybe It’s You: Cut the Crap. Face Your Fears. Love Your Life. Lauren has spent over 20 years coaching thousands of private and corporate clients, including executives at Vogue, BASF, and AOL. Lauren has been a featured expert in The New York Times, BBC, Forbes, Women’s Health, Dr. Oz, and Marie Claire and she is a regular contributor to Businessweek and the Huffington Post.

On this episode of the Rock Your Money, Rock Your Life podcast, Lauren and I discuss what needs to change in order to defeat our inner scam artists, how honest intentions and kept promises can change the world, and steps we can take TODAY to change our lives.
