In this episode…
In the eyes of Victoria Song, much of life can be broken down into two states: contraction and expansion. Contraction involves feelings of fear, stress, and vulnerability. In this state, our potential is limited and creativity is stifled. This is the state that many entrepreneurs live in without even realizing it.
On the other hand, expansion is the mindset of possibility and growth. It’s the process of focusing on your values and mission to achieve things that felt impossible before. This is where entrepreneurs do their best work and can leverage their confidence into results. The question then becomes, “How do I transition from contraction to expansion?”
On this episode of the Inspired Insider Podcast, Dr. Jeremy Weisz sits down with Victoria Song, executive coach and leadership advisor, to hear her unique perspective on business and life. She explains her theory of contraction and expansion and how that impacts every aspect of our lives. Victoria also goes into her personal story, the thought process behind a profitable investment, and how she transformed her career into her personal brand. Stay tuned to learn all of this and more!
