The Catalyst with Samantha Kris

The Power of Owning Your Story

February 19, 2020

In Episode 03 six-time best-selling author and business coach, Marsha Vanwynsberghe, shares her story as a mother who dealt with teen substance abuse. After grueling years of shame and judgement, nearly losing both her sons four days apart and feeling completely helpless, Marsha found a way to reclaim her power. We discuss how important it was for her to put down the armour she’d carried for so long, how essential taking ownership of her choices was and how the process radically changed the trajectory of her life and the lives of her family. 


This episode is packed with valuable tools to help you own your story, no matter your background, and will inspire you to:

  • Take back your personal power by learning to stand on your story, as opposed to in it
  • Successfully make the shift from a victim mindset to an ownership mindset
  • Respect and honour what you need through times of change 

Be sure to check out Marsha’s book, When She Stopped Asking Why. And if you’d like to connect with Marsha, you can visit her website or find her on Facebook and Instagram.
