Today’s conversation is a powerful look at how to start living brave, and my special guest Shoshanna Raven is here to talk gratitude, confidence, the importance of always remembering to love ourselves, and so much more.
Shoshanna Raven is a holistic lifestyle, business, leadership, and love coach for heart-led visionaries and female entrepreneurs. Specifically, she works with personal brands & community-centric businesses, helping them take off & scale to global impact.
As a shame slayer, Shoshanna speaks openly about taboos – sex money power – to liberate the TRUTH. She launched her podcast Living Brave in 2019, where she opened up about her herpes status, in hopes to break shame and stigma culture, inspire authentic connection and liberate listeners to access their own personal power.
What began as a one-woman show with no intention to monetize grew organically to a multi-million dollar a year business in just two years! Shoshanna has now worked with thousands of clients around the world, hosted sold-out global retreats, and runs a rockstar team.
She’s on a mission to slay shame, tell the truth, and unlock your limitless potential through brave leadership… learning to walk with fear and open to the magical mystery of this wild human experience.
In this potent episode you’ll hear:
- What “dancing with gratitude” is all about and how Shoshanna does this each day in her own life [9:06]
- Her tips for feeling the whole of the experiences that you encounter [16:34]
- Why you always have choice, and you can choose bravery [18:53]
- Her thoughts on truth and the reframing of fear [26:37]
- The reasons that failures aren’t really failures, and why it’s so important to realize that confidence is bravery compounded over time [28:58]
- Shoshanna’s tips for loving ourselves, regardless of what we are currently experiencing [41:12]
One of the most profound pieces of this episode that I intend for you to receive is the part of the conversation where Shoshanna and I talk about leadership. Specifically, we look at the courage that it takes to lead, starting with allowing others to feel what they require to feel no matter what, and that is what true leadership really is.

“There is a very simple mantra that I love to repeat to myself when I was going through a really hard period, going through a heartbreak a few years ago. It was ‘I live a meaningful and magical life because I decided to.’ The gratitude is finding meaning in life, and choosing to romanticize your life.” [Shoshanna, 10:15]
“How much life could we fit into this life through living alive, which means it’s scary, it’s exciting, it’s vulnerable, but there’s a vulnerability high that comes alongside the vulnerability hangover.” [Shoshanna, 25:38]
“Sometimes, we don’t want to look at what precedes confidence, and I truly believe that confidence is bravery compounded over time.” [Shoshanna, 28:58]
“The trail to success is paved in failures, and we find that the failures aren’t really failures. Through that process you become someone, you gain the confidence, and you have everything that is on the other side.” [Shoshanna, 31:41]
