Maxie McCoy says she is on a mission to inspire billions to believe in themselves. She dives in with Après CEO Jennifer Gefsky on why women struggle with self doubt — from macro to micro reasons — and offers tangible strategies to develop a deep sense of belief.

“Rome will always be burning,” McCoy says, noting that it’s key to hone in on what really matters in order to be productive. She notes the importance of saying no with the understanding that it’s not going to make everyone happy — and that’s OK.

Maxie dishes up lots of gems in this episode of The After Show podcast. Maxie spent years working with Levo League before branching out on her own as a writer and speaker with inspiration in mind. She’s the author of the “You’re Not Lost” workbook.
