39: Embrace Your Passions and Don't Be Afraid to Take Action with Dr. Ashlee Greer

To all Intense Women: here’s a question. What passions light your inner fire? What gets you talking a mile a minute? When was the last time you’ve been “too much?” There, where the answers to all of those questions intersect, is your calling and your purpose. In a society designed to conform and submit, it can seem daunting to chase those dreams, to allow yourself to feel that passion purely. We need someone to encourage us to embrace those passions and charge us to act on them. We need someone like Dr. Ashlee Greer. 


Ashlee is a psychiatrist turned coach who thinks the idea of being “Too Much” is all too prevalent. In this week’s episode, she shares her intense passion for all areas of life and encourages you to make some space to embrace who you truly are. Ashlee knows that for many women, we simply need a person to ask the right questions, and set an ample stage for your own beautiful creativity to take flight.
