This week, we are talking about leading with love in everything from cooking to speaking from a big stage. We’re also talking about feeling called to share your truth and what to do with that calling.


For this conversation, I’m joined by my dear friend, Angelique Santana.


Angelique previously appeared on the podcast with her Big Talk Academy Virtual Showcase talk, You Can Always Begin Again, in Episode 325.


She is the owner and founder of Eat With Angelique, the small business launched with a singular mission in mind – to guide people toward a healthy lifestyle starting, but not ending, with the food they eat. She is also a published author, a motivational speaker, a health coach, and, of course, a chef.


Angelique is truly an influential voice in this world, and I know you’re going to be inspired by her journey.


In this episode, we’ll explore:

  • Angelique’s background as an athlete and what she learned from that
  • Feeling called to speak up and to stop hiding behind perfectionism
  • Knowing yourself and owning your voice
  • The freedom that comes from finally sharing your truth
  • Leading with love in everything from cooking to speaking
  • Angelique’s current favorite book: The Surrender Experiment, speaker: Glennon Doyle, and podcast: We Can Do Hard Things.
