IT GIRL RADIO EPISODE #95: From CEOs to Childbirth: Why Adaptability is a Key to Success with Jessica Nazarali and Alexia Leachman
Fear often stands in the way of people pursuing their dreams but for our guest this week, Alexia Leachman, fear led to pursuing a dream she didn't even know she had. Alexia was a personal branding and mindset expert who brought new life to her career after enduring a huge challenge.
Alexia Leachman's life and business changed course when during her pregnancy, she realized that she had tokophobia, or the fear of childbirth.
With over a decade of business experience helping others overcome their fears, Alexia was no stranger to overcoming obstacles and she faced this one head on using her signature Head Trash Clearing method.
As she worked through her fear she fielded questions from expectant mothers and when the questions began to rapidly multiply she understood that there was a real demand for her insight.
Alexia responded to the demand by starting her podcast Free Free Childbirth and from there was launched into a brand new niche.

“If you don't believe in your own capability and your own vision for yourself then doing all the marketing and doing all the other stuff is just going to fall short”
“We don't need to necessarily always know where we're going but if we pay attention to what people are asking for or what people come to you and ask you about, that can be a great tool to know what direction to head in”
“It's about coping with the stress and the pressure and tapping into the positive aspects of stress.”
“These fears that we have effect us in every aspect of our lives...it's really worth dealing with your fears”
