YAPClassic: Heather Monahan on Creating Confidence

Update: 2023-02-03


When Heather Monahan worked in corporate, she helped her company grow from 100 million in revenue to an excess of 200 million. She rose through the ranks, serving as the VP of Sales, EVP, and eventually Chief Revenue Officer. Despite her tireless efforts, she was fired as soon as a new CEO stepped in. Rather than wallowing in her defeat, she self-published her first bestselling book and became one of the Top Keynote Speakers in the World in 2022. In this episode, you’ll learn about how being a people pleaser makes you less confident, tips for handling rejection, and what you can do to challenge your limiting beliefs. 

Heather was named one of the Top 40 Female Keynote Speakers in 2020 and Top 50 Keynote Speakers for 2022 by Real Leaders. Her TEDx talk was promoted to TED and translated into 6 languages. Harper Collins Leadership published her new book Overcome Your Villains in November 2021. Heather has been featured in USA Today, CNN, Forbes, Fast Company, Gary V’s Audio Experience, and The Steve Harvey Show.
