Wondering how to transform your life and get closer to your vision and desires?

Today, I’m teaching on that very topic and showing you how to get everything you want through this powerful interview.

It’s not every day that I get interviewed, but today, that’s going to change… Because today, I will be the guest!

Yep, we’re turning the tables (on me) and I’m going to get all candid with my brilliant interviewer, the amazing friend Vasavi Kumar.

“When you start to practice following your heart and stepping outside of the rational mind that’s trying to hold you back, you develop trust muscles with yourself.” – Emily Williams

Woop woop! (Yes, as you can see, I am veeeery excited).

You see, I wanted to change things up a bit. And I thought, what better way to do so than to sit in someone else’s chair for once?

We talked about sooo much interesting stuff to help you transform your life, and I thought it would be a shame not to share it with all of you.

I cover topics like…

  • my top mindset practices
  • how to transform your thoughts to create more success
  • how I live my life based on my desires (and how you can too)

All right, let’s dive in and talk about how to transform your life!

In This Episode:

  • [00:00] Introduction
  • [00:41] It’s time to change things up a bit!
  • [02:19] How I went from being rejected from Starbucks (I know, crazy, right?!) to where I am now
  • [07:58] Why I couldn’t NOT follow my heart
  • [13:26] Here’s why it’s important to admit your desires to yourself
  • [22:46] It’s time to realize the power of your words
  • [33:17] Let’s talk about motherhood
  • [39:12] What it’s like to be a recovering people pleaser and why you should say “no” more often


“When you start to practice following your heart and stepping outside of the rational mind that’s trying to hold you back, you develop trust muscles with yourself.” – Emily Williams

“I definitely was always somebody who felt like she was meant for something big, but I didn’t know what that thing actually was. But it was always that little whisper and intuition that there was something more for me and something different.” – Emily Williams

“I saw the entrepreneurs in my family have big dreams and do things that were a little bit different. But I definitely took it to a whole nother level. After my quarter life crisis, I felt like I was meant to live in London, England. And for somebody who grew up in Ohio with a family that really never leaves Ohio, that was very strange. And that was definitely one of those moments where I did get some pushback, even from friends.” – Emily Williams

“I didn’t know any other way to live my life besides doing the things that I love.” – Emily Williams

“There’s this beautiful quote by Raymond Holliwell, and he talks about how following your desires is basically stepping into your fully expressed life, the fullest expression of you. And so I believe that when I continue to trust my heart, that’s me being fully expressed.” – Emily Williams

“Everything [you desire], big or small, just get it down on paper. Because the issue is most people can’t even admit what they want to themselves.” – Emily Williams

I started I Heart My Life from my kitchen table in a tiny London apartment in 2013.

After going through a 5-year quarter-life crisis, I discovered the world of personal development and the power of a gratitude journal and finally got clear on my true purpose in life: to help women fall in love with themselves and their lives. I Heart My Life has gone through many transformations over the years, but its mission has always remained the same: we exist to teach you how to create a life that you love.
