Every now and again on the podcast, Naomi Nic and Mandy feature one of the members from the Gentle Business Mastermind. You may recall that we spoke with Ellen Ronalds Keene in season one of Ditch The Hustle.
In this episode we’re really excited to introduce you to Sharyn Holmes. Sharyn is a gutsy leader, anti-oppression consultant, coach, artists, speaker and writer; “not for the faint of heart,” she writes on her website. Her work dives deep into social justice, spirituality and personal sovereignty.
Sharyn’s anti-oppression courses such as “Unpack your privilege” are truly transformational. All three of us have learned so much from Sharyn over the years, and we really do love her to bits.
In this particular conversation Sharyn shared with us the important role of storytelling in business, nuances of vulnerability in building a gentle business, the power of community and connection, how the mastermind has supported her to give words to her experience, Sharyn’s approach to self care, the importance of being in a space with people who have similar intentions and values, how to work through feelings of overwhelm, and a bit about the framework for unpacking your privilege.
