Episode 13: Are Your Talents Still Buried?


Many of our gifts – AKA our talents and our treasure – are still buried.

Buried beneath our inner voice, our schedule, how we treat ourselves, what we say yes to, and what we think is possible.

So many of us forget about our knowing and connection, and lose ourselves in our schedule, to-do list, and even our goals – which may all overshadow our light.


I have met many women who live in the “I should” world. They’re not being illuminated by their choices and they’re wondering why their light is dampened.

Your buried gifts could be a differentiator, change agent, or catalysts for some miraculous energy, impact, and influence.

As you listen to this episode think about what gifts you may have and where you may be able to tap into them more throughout your day, week, or month.

Remember, we do not shine when our gifts are buried!

When we use our gifts, the world becomes more enlightened!

Now is the time to make your talents a priority!
