Every now and then on the podcast, we wanted to feature one of our Guest Mentors from the Gentle Business Mastermind. We have conducted a number of live interviews with a variety of experts, while mastermind members are on the line. We then store these interviews in our members portal so that members who couldn’t attend live or who have perhaps joined the mastermind in later years, can listen back to the mentors’ wisdom and experience.

This is an excerpt from one of those interviews, featuring Staci Jordan Shelton. Staci is a coach and a consultant who helps people look at the things that keep them stuck, stalling or sabotaging themselves. In this segment, Staci and one of our hosts, Naomi, discuss gaslighting and the hustle culture that exists in our society (including in business contexts).

Staci explains what gaslighting is across a number of different contexts, and why we need to stop gaslighting ourselves especially around boundaries. Naomi and Staci dive into the reasons ‘getting free is a process and staying free is a practice’ and how we can apply that in our own lives. Finally, they cover hustle culture and Staci shares how that can keep us from success in business and in life, plus some important questions to ask to help get free of that.
