Jeanette LeBlanc is back on the YKAL podcast! She is the author of You Are Not Too Much: Love Notes of Heartache, Redemption, and Reclamation. Through her work, her writing, and today’s conversation, she offers a different take on how to reclaim your wants, needs, and desires.
(We’re doing a GIVEAWAY of Jeanette’s book, so make sure you listen to know how to win a copy!)
Women often will put up with suffering or bullshit before deciding to walk away from a crappy situation. It takes a wild amount of courage to step into a life transition. Jeanette believes, “Sometimes our stories are the only things that can save us.”
In this episode, we talk about acknowledging (and honoring) our deep revelations and having the willingness to step into them with radical honesty. Of course, there may be circumstances where you can’t step into your truth and Jeanette shares how her work gives voice to those who are unable to speak out.
In this episode, you’ll hear:
- Jeanette’s desire to be in a place of truth and transparency and her journey to get there (5:00)
- Sharing your truth for the first time is the first and most important step (14:03)
- Why it is important to acknowledge there is risk to speak your truth and why Jeanette sees her work as the voice for those who can’t (21:00)
- Jeanette shares an alter ego exercise to help you step into your truest self (31:16)

Episode 280: Unleash Your Story with Jeanette LeBlanc
Jeanette spent most of her life working very hard to be a good girl. One day she woke up and decided to write her way out of her own life – things haven’t been the same since. Single mama to two ridiculously unruly daughters, Jeanette believes in the smooth honey burn of whiskey, the crashing of mama ocean, pencil skirts, vintage band tees and fringed boots, the kinship of the wild wolf, walking for miles in unfamiliar cities, that the burn down always precedes the rise, the singular power of dark red lipstick and the necessity of putting out for the muse on the regular. Oh, yea – and that sometimes our stories are the only things that can save us.
