Episode 18: Courageous Humility: A Conversation with Melvin Varghese

What happens when you pair courage and humility? How can “coming from a heart of service” transform your business and your life? And how do you ride the continuum between honoring what the heart wants and needing to take care of all the practical things?

In our conversation with Melvin Varghese, the clinician behind the phenomenally successful Selling the Couch podcast, we dive deep into the internal struggles and insecurities that come up for any entrepreneur, especially  psychotherapists in private practice. We talk about the magic that happens when you stand at your growth edge and take a leap despite your fears.

Through his podcast and thriving Facebook community, many people know who Melvin is and they recognize his personal brand. It’s about authenticity and curiosity and compassion.  We’re honored that Melvin was willing to dive deep with us and share some stories he’s never told before including the story of  his family’s emigration and what really inspires him to do this work and take professional risks.
