You were not created to play small.



Marilyn McMurray, Business Doula, sits down with Rebecca to discuss toxic environments and what to do if you find yourself in one.

We often hear from the personal development gurus that if we find ourselves in a toxic environment, we need to leave it. And fast.

Sometimes, especially for those of living in small communities, just up and leaving isn’t always an option. (well, it’s technically always an option, but not an easy one)

Marilyn and I discuss how to know when an environment might be toxic and what to do if leaving isn’t a simple solution.
