[Episode 139] How do you get where you need to be? What to do when you *think* you don’t know how

Do you need help working through the messy middle? 🙋 It’s that moment when you’re working on something – perhaps a goal, your dream, your business or your social media – and you know where you are now and where you want to be, but you’re caught in the middle trying to figure out the ‘how’.
