#63 Self-Doubt to Self-Discovery: Strategies for Embracing Inner Comfort with Brent Perkins

Do you feel like you’re living an inauthentic life? Are you tired of feeling like an imposter and getting in your own way? It’s time to get real and start uncovering your truth! Brent Perkins, a tenured CEO who left his corporate job to explore inner work and write his first book, ‘Papercuts’, joins Finola to discuss the challenges of embracing change, fostering healthy relationships, and achieving personal and professional success. 

Throughout the discussion, Brent explores embracing the seasons of life, the concept of comfort zones versus fear zones, and how it’s essential not to let fear and discomfort hold us back from embracing possibilities. With his relatable experiences and wisdom, Brent encourages listeners to step out of their comfort zones, let go of self-imposed limitations, and embark on a transformative journey of self-exploration. Key points throughout include:  


  • How to embrace the seasons of life and combat the fear zone 
  • The art of self-delusion and the five human senses 
  • Overcoming Imposter Syndrome and turning the lens on yourself  
  • Self-exploration and identifying the fear of having a choice
  • Get out of your own way and let the magic happen!
  • Is money tied to self-worth?
  • The value of showing up, surrendering and being bold 
  • Grant yourself permission to get curious 


When we know our value, when we love and trust ourselves fully, we’re not willing to give a piece of us away for less than the full value of what it can be.” – Brent Perkins.
