Speed Secrets: self-worth, sins and saying sorry.
Show Notes

Folks, I have been itching to share this episode with you. 

If you're unfamiliar with the premise behind Secrets in the City, I ask my guests to pick an anonymous secret from my collection of thousands. As part of my work over the last decade, I have asked people to share a secret on a piece of paper as part of a mindset tool. These secrets are unidentifiable and serve as centrepieces to kick off a rapid deep dive into some life changing conversations. Normally, I ask my guest to then share their own secret (something they've never shared publicly before), but for today's episode we're changing it up! 

Welcome to the first edition of Speed Secrets where we discuss ten anonymous secrets and share quick mindset tools and tips to help move forward with remarkable confidence. I'm joined by my co-worker, Gabby Lane, who helps me unpack the secrets in this special speed round episode!

We cover a lot of ground in this episode. From self-doubt, to telling the truth, love, cheating, and how we can live more in the present moment, this special edition packs a lot of punch.

I'm really excited for you to listen to this episode. If you'd like us to do more of these episodes, let us know by emailing us at or by submitting your own anonymous secret here:

Happy listening.
