269: Responding to a Calling Despite Fear: Cyndi Doyle, LPC-S, NCC, CDWF, CCISM

The fear of being seen is something we all face at one time or another. When we feel called to serve in bigger and better ways, we can’t be afraid to show up authentically. Today’s conversation brings the message that we can’t let fear hold us back. The world needs the good things that we can bring. Join us to learn more!

Our Featured Guest

Cyndi Doyle, LPC-S, NCC, CDWF, CCISM

Cyndi Doyle is a counselor, speaker, and author who had a big vision to work with couples in which one or both partners are in law enforcement. With a partner in law enforcement, Cyndi is familiar with the unique stressors that come to the individual and family from this line of work. She founded Code4Couples, which provides information and training to help law enforcement officers and their spouses remain connected and resilient. She recognizes the role that fear plays when your passion calls you to step into something new and unknown. Cyndi shares with us how she shows up to share her message and overcomes the fears and insecurities that come with being seen.

WHO'S THIS GUY? 


Hi. I'm Melvin. I'm a psychologist (PhD), entrepreneur, and online creator living in Philadelphia, PA.

In 2014, I began to think about how to use the therapy skills we learn in grad school, and in our clinical work into different realms (e.g., podcasting, consulting, online course creation, etc).

This allows us to serve others on larger scales while diversifying our income beyond 1 to 1 work.

I make podcasts and videos about business, tech, productivity, and lessons I'm learning from becoming the CEO of a lean, mean 5 person 100% remote team (we're not really mean..it just rhymed =P).
