My guest for Episode #93 of the My Favorite Mistake podcast is Lisa Winneke. An expert in self-empowerment, Lisa knows all about leadership, growth, and love and she helps people become the most trusted person in their client's, companies, and families lives. She is the founder & host of “The Good News Guide,” which can be found on YouTube and as a podcast.

In today's episode, Lisa shares her “favorite mistake” story about a theme of looking outside of herself for answers to life's questions. Why did she say she “didn't even know who I was”?

"I found that the news was not something that actually expanded and inspired and empowered me. It did the reverse, it made me feel afraid of life."
"And because I was so afraid of making a mistake, I continuously sought guidance, coaching, all of it from people outside of me, to the point that I made mistake after mistake."
