Conversation with Kimberly Weiss - How To Be Bold When It Feels Impossible

As part of this month’s series on the topic of (being) Bold, we spoke with special guest Kimberly Weiss, teacher, speaker and coach on a mission to dismantle diet culture and help women not feel like sh*t. She works with smart women that are into body positivity but still struggle with food + body and want to stop giving their power away + trust themselves.

 

 

Kim can be found at KimberlyWeiss.com, Instagram @KimberlyWeiss and on her podcast F Your Diet. She also runs a satire instagram account @lifestylechangebarbie. If you want to stop passing on BS beauty/body rules to the next generation, she invites you to join her community email truthtuesdays for unfiltered honesty and fun.

Kim’s 5 PRO Tips for Being Bold

  1. Ignore everyone else (yes even your best friend). They aren't you. Take advice from others sure - but be your own guide.

  2. Say the thing that needs to be said even though it might make people angry. Do it anyways.

  3. Self care and rest. You must and need to give yourself breaks. It's essential for bold work.

  4. Set boundaries. Know your limits, sometimes break them, but don't be everything for everyone.

  5. Keep going.

As always when we have a special guest on the show, we’ve designed a downloadable Tip Sheet with the 5 pro tips Kim’s just shared so you can print out, pin it up, and start living more boldly!
