How to give zero f**ks with authenticity coach Kat John
Listen on Spotify
Today we are exploring authenticity and I can think of no one better to join us to speak about this topic than Kat John. Kat is an authenticity coach, keynote speaker, podcast host and creator of the zerofks movement. For eight years she’s been working with people to powerfully manage the thoughts in their head so they can access their truth and focus on what really matters.
In this episode Kat shares her journey of how she transitioned from being totally tied up with thoughts that were detrimental to herself and her self worth into expressing her authentic self and not caring what others think.
Dance has played a huge role in Kat’s transformation and her zerofks movement. She explains her first experience with free dance and how transformative it is for her, and her community.
Stepping into your authentic self is often made more difficult because of pushback from those around us. Kat explains how she navigated this in her own journey and the ways she was able to hold space for herself.
We also discuss digital detoxes (including some powerful micro hacks to reclaim your time and life) and how stepping into authenticity is more about letting things go, than being more of something.
Kat is an absolute force. She provides a powerful and totally inspiring blueprint for how to stop getting caught up in thoughts, and how to step into your own, true self. You are going to love this conversation.
