Impostor syndrome.

You know, that little voice in your head that says, “Who do you think you are? You can’t do THAT! You'll never be as good as so-and-so. It's only a matter of time before everyone finds out you don't have a CLUE what you're doing.”

This is a show about that.

Producer, singer, mentor, storyteller, and urban meditation aficionado Andrea Klunder takes you inside the minds and hearts of artists, healers, creative entrepreneurs and anyone who's willing to take a risk, think outside the box, move beyond self-doubt to live their creative work, and live their best lives.

Episode 086. “The talk is called The Flip Side of Loneliness. It addresses my cure for loneliness which, in a nutshell, I believe is an inside job.” ~Monica Rivera

Do not be fooled by the length of this show! Brilliant things come in small packages or, in this case, short episodes. In fact, it’s perfect timing especially if you’re considering doing something crazy-brave. Like give a TEDx talk. 

Her insights are about more than just what’s going through one’s head as they take the TEDx stage. Did I mention that Monica got up in front of a roomful of (mostly) strangers to talk about her experiences with bone-deep loneliness? 

And yet… when you hear her explain the why and the how of her TEDx Talk, you’re listening to someone who had total conviction in her message. 

One of my favorite quotes from Monica is humble yourself to know that what you don’t know is really important. She’s speaking of the entire experience, that whiteknuckle ride from speaker application to stage. And we’re all going to have to humble ourselves to things we just don’t know. What we learn about life in the process - about loneliness, about grief, about stepping outside our comfort zones - just might make an excellent TEDx topic.
