Are you working towards a big, shiny, amazing goal this year?

Or is there a change that you’ve been wanting to make in your life… but you’re just not sure how to move from ‘dream’ to ‘reality’?

Then you’re going to want to meet Andrea Owen!

Andrea is a brilliant life coach who helps individuals and companies succeed, thrive, and empower themselves — and she’s written three books on how to own your strength and feel amazing while doing it!

Andrea’s latest book, Make Some Noise: Speak Your Mind and Own Your Strength (um, a must-read!) is a personal development manifesto designed to help women find their voice, zero in on their goals, and make some serious changes in order to live a life that’s in alignment with their dreams and values.

In other words, it’s the perfect bedtime reading for the Modern CEO.

What does “making noise” look like? It can be anything from setting kind but firm boundaries, to discovering and following your truth, to learning how to speak up and speak out. Check out the episode to learn how to identify and challenge your own inner critic, move along the path of change, and shake off the harmful beliefs of hustle culture!

While you’re at it, order a copy of Andrea’s latest book, Make Some Noise: Speak Your Mind and Own Your Strength!
