  • Homework

Sharing wins

The coaching call starts off with each person in the group sharing a win of theirs for the week. It could be better understanding a situation, trusting someone else to follow through, pushing yourself to meet a goal, and so forth.

Each time a person shares their win, they ‘pass the mic’ to the next person who shares theirs. This encourages the feeling of sisterhood and enabled people to be proud of and share their accomplishments.

Bringing issues to the table to share and discuss

All the women in the call share a personal issue they have been struggling with recently or something that they need advice about. They each listen to one another and then take turns saying how they relate to it and give any advice they can share. Veronica also steps in and guides them:

What you are essentially doing is …. you were both setting a boundary and you both respected that boundary, so because you both respected that boundary, this is what allows them to either respond with patience or react with some form of anger or some form of resentment and try to blame you. So once you set that boundary, it’s up to them on where they go.

The conversation encompasses a wide range of different topics as each person shares their struggles and the conversation grows around the giving and receiving of advice and companionship:

The key to any of this is finding it within, finding joy within, so what do I need to work on right now – this is where goals come in – what do I need to work on right now to go ahead and get me to that happy place without being dependent or expecting it from anybody else?

Finding joy within yourself and connecting back to those old activities. For some women, it is doing these activities while letting go of any guilt that comes up.


How can we find joy and experience guilt and still move forward?

Write down what the process looks like to you, and try to do something new that you have not done before that you know will bring you joy. What steps do you need to take to arrive at that place, and work within a timeline to make sure that you have a goal in mind.

Veronica Cisneros | Empowered And Unapologetic PodcastI’m a licensed therapist and women walk into my office every day stressed and disconnected. As a mom of three daughters, I want my girls to know who they are and feel confident about their future. I can’t think of a better way to help other women than by demonstrating an empowered and unapologetic life.

So I started  Empowered and Unapologetic to be a safe space for women to be vulnerable and change their lives for the better before she ever needs to see a therapist.
