[DIAL AN EXPERT] Andrea Owen on Taking Up Space + Making Some Noise EP#407

Aug 22, 2021

Have you ever wanted to negotiate a salary increase but weren’t really sure how? Or if you even deserved it? Have you had someone tell you that you are “too much”, “too loud”, or “too emotional”? And, then you shrink a little bit and proceed to dull your own shine. Have you ever looked around your life and noticed that you don’t have all that much fun anymore… like, whatever happened to pleasure? If you answered “yes” to any of these questions, it’s probably high-time you took up a bit more space and started to Make. Some. Damn. Noise. Already.

Ok, Amy, that sounds fucking great, but HOW!?
I’m so glad you asked. On this week’s show, I’m thrilled to dial up an expert on the subject of making some noise – My very own bestie, Andrea Owen. In her third book (available end of August 2021), Andrea looks at the myriad of ways that women silence themselves in their lives, ultimately keeping them small and disempowered.

Creep our conversation where we discuss the role that religion, the patriarchy, and internalized misogyny play on how women feel about themselves and their choices. And, in turn, why we often don’t speak up, don’t ask for what we want, and continue to put everyone in front of ourselves… and what-the-hell we can do about it. If you’re ready for a serious dose of confidence, personal power, and a bit of rebellion, grab a pen, my friend.

This pod explores:

  • What to do if you’ve always been told you are “too much” or “too loud” or “too sensitive”
  • What it really means for women to start asking for what they want (and why we often don’t)
  • Andrea’s 4-step process to “Unlearning” the behaviors that have kept you small
  • What “pleasure” has to do with empowerment and why you probably need more of it
