000 Welcome to the Secret Self-Sabotage Podcast!

Quick question: do you find that, when you want to move to the next level in life or quit a bad habit, there's always something getting in your way? Have you ever considered that that "something" could be you? I'm Jessica Cuatrecasas, a certified life coach and a secret self-sabotage slayer.
