EP 67: Real Confidence- The Confidence to Get Unstuck When Life Really Does Suck with Special Guest CK Collins

I’d say every 10th podcast pitch or so I get is from somebody who uses the word “unstuck”. They want to help the world and people to get unstuck. It’s noble and for some, you might say a calling, but it’s talked about so much that I tend to avoid it. 

Until now. 

When I connected with CK Collins, otherwise known as Kelly, author of The Swipe Right Effect: The Power to Get Unstuck, her story and her wisdom were something I had to bring to our audience.

This state of being we refer to as “being stuck” is often reduced to situations where we can’t make a decision, can’t motivate ourselves to move forward and leave a job or relationship. We’re “stuck” in place. 

What we’re talking about in this episode of Real Confidence is stuck with a capital S. When upheaval and trauma leave us immobilized, mired in grief and anger and pain. When we’re STUCK in that place between what life was like before and can’t see, never mind move toward, “the after”. 

No one person’s way out will be another’s. Not exactly. But there’s something we can all learn from the connection Kelly made between forgiveness and confidence that’s why I’m sharing this conversation with you today.

C.K. Collins, aka Kelly, was an award-winning publisher and owner of a hyperlocal news publishing company in the Nashville area. She sold her company and retired from the industry in 2021. Her divorce following a 31-year marriage led her to completely up-end her life and start over. Believing that travel feeds the soul and grows the heart and mind, Kelly embarked on a two-year travel sabbatical to write her first book.
