MOTM #587: When the World Says You’re Too Much with Dr. Alyssa Olenick

Monday, June 10th, 2024

If you ever wanted to hear me have a conversation with the Energizer Bunny, then you’ll definitely want to tune in to this episode. Jokes aside, you really do need to hear Dr. Alyssa Olenick’s story because she simply doesn’t stop, and it’s fucking incredible. Y’all know I stay calling for MOAR YOU, and Alyssa has no other modes—it’s more Alyssa, all the time. Maybe for some she’s “too much,” but that’s her super power. By leaning in to and owning that “too much” Alyssa has built something incredible that the rest of us are lucky enough to get to be a part of. No one in this world gets to tell you who you are, except for you. If someone is out there calling you “too much,” maybe that’s a sign to lean in, and be even MOAR.

Let’s chat.
