This week, I am interviewing the amazing Sheena Yap Chan. Sheena is The Wall Street Journal Bestselling author of the book The Tao of Self-Confidence. She is a keynote speaker, consultant and award-winning podcaster on leadership and self-confidence, amplifying the voices of underrepresented Asian women.

The conversation explores the topics of self-confidence, authenticity, and the challenges faced by women in entrepreneurship. Sheena Yap Chan shares her journey of self-confidence and emphasizes the importance of loving oneself, including the good, bad, and ugly parts, especially as an Asian woman in a White patriarchal society with little representation of Asian women. We discuss the societal pressures on women to be superwomen and the need to dismantle stereotypes, working smart, not just hard, and the role of trauma in building confidence.

Overall, the conversation highlights the need for women to create their own definition of self-confidence and to support each other in achieving their goals. Sheena shares her journey of building self-confidence and the importance of community and asking for help. She highlights the need for women to speak up, take space, and promote themselves without shame. Sheena shares her experience of releasing her book and navigating the uncertainty and fear that comes with it.
