Regardless of the situation, always have true grit and grace! In this episode, we are chatting with Amberly Lago, best-selling author, speaker, podcast host, and health coach. She started her speaking career after her life was deeply altered and her world was completely changed in May 2010. While riding her motorcycle in Woodland Hills, CA, she was hit by an SUV and thrown thirty feet down a busy street. Her right leg took the brunt of the impact and was crushed almost beyond repair. Despite an incredibly difficult recovery process, being a former professional dancer, athlete, and fitness trainer, she was determined to not only save her leg, but her career, her dreams, and her dignity. After a lengthy hospital stay and 34 surgeries, doctors were able to fuse her leg together and repair her severed femoral artery despite the one percent odds of saving it and the initial recommendation to amputate. Her life experience and the proven strategies she has created to understand and maximize resilience resonate with companies whose core values include perseverance, grit, passion, and team building. And for audiences living with chronic pain (like her from CRPS) she delivers a powerful message of hope and offers solutions at conferences, workshops, and clinics. In today’s episode, we discuss Amberly’s upbringing, how she survived abuse as a child, the importance of forgiveness, and how to most past self-pity. We also dive deeper into the repercussions of her car accident, how to pace (not push) yourself through pain, and how Amberly starts her days off with reminders of gratitude. Amberly’s story is incredibly powerful and inspiring - you won’t want to miss this episode!   Sponsored by -    Policygenius. Head to policygenius.com to get started.   NordVPN.

You’re allowed to break up with your dreams. Sometimes letting go is the only way we can grow and go on to be successful.   In today’s episode, we are talking with Trent Shelton, former NFL player, author, and international motivational speaker. Considered as one of the most groundbreaking motivational speakers of our era, Trent has touched millions with his words on self-worth, self-love, and recognizing your greatness.   After his short-lived and rocky stint in the NFL, Trent had the opportunity to speak at a church event back home in 2011, and his world changed forever. After a sensational performance, it was undeniable to the audience and Trent that he found his purpose through inspiring others to live better lives. He started creating YouTube videos with his words of wisdom and courage, which went viral. Before he knew it, Trent was speaking across the globe and packing arenas from New York, to London and Fiji, and reaching over 50 million people across his social channels.   In today’s episode, we discuss Trent’s time in the NFL, what it was like pivoting to something completely new and how he was mentally able to let go of a failed dream.  We also discuss how it can get lonely at the top, when to walk away from relationships and we go deep on some timely social justice issues of today.   Sponsored by -    BetterHelp.

Are NFTs a Fad or the future of art?   Today on YAP Snacks, Hala takes you on a journey to learn about NFTs, the cryptoart that top entrepreneurs and investors are backing as the next big thing that shouldn’t be dismissed similar to the dot com boom in the late 90s.   NFTs are the latest cryptocurrency phenomenon to enter the mainstream – they turn digital works of art and other collectibles into one-of-a-kind, verifiable assets   While the concept of NFTs have been around since 2012, they’ve exploded over the past year.  In 2020, the market grew by 229%, reaching $250 million in value. And, in February 2021, more NFTs were traded in 24 hours than in the entirety of 2020.   In the crypto space, hype is definitely par for the course. But this feels different mainly because the mainstream hasn’t just taken notice. They have skin in the game— from fashion brands like Nike and Louis Vitton to sports brands  NBA/ NFL, to musicians like Kings of Leon and Grimes. They all are putting their hats in the NFT-ring, creating NFT-based consumer goods and services.   So are NFTs the future? Or is the NFT craze just a bubble stemming from increased online activity following the pandemic?   Well the good team at YAP have investigated the topic and we are here to give you the facts, so you can better understand what NFTs are, and decide if you want to get involved or just let it be another crypto trend you let pass by and fade away.   This episode is sponsored by Olay, and Betterhelp.   Social Media:   Follow YAP on IG: www.instagram.com/youngandprofiting Reach out to Hala directly at Hala@YoungandProfiting.com Follow Hala on Linkedin: www.linkedin.com/in/htaha/ Follow Hala on Instagram: www.instagram.com/yapwithhala Follow Hala on ClubHouse: @halataha Check out our website to meet the team, view show notes and transcripts: www.youngandprofiting.com

Did you know that the Mind and the Brain are two separate things?!    In this episode, we are chatting with Dr. Caroline Leaf, a best-selling author and cognitive neuroscientist. Since the early 1980s, Dr. Caroline has researched the mind-brain connection, the nature of mental health, and the formation of memory. She was one of the first in her field to study how the brain can change (neuroplasticity) with directed mind input.   Dr. Leaf is also the best-selling author of Switch on Your Brain, Think Learn Succeed, Think and Eat Yourself Smart, and many more. She teaches at academic, medical and neuroscience conferences, churches, and to various audiences around the world.

We’ll also chat about the differences between the brain and the mind, how the mind and soul are connected, the physical impact toxic thoughts have on your brain, and Dr. Caroline’s advice on how it’s possible to heal with your mind instead of medication.

Hear From Holocaust Survivor and Psychologist, Dr. Edith Eger!    In this episode, we are chatting with Dr. Edith Eger, a best-selling author, psychologist, and survivor of the Holocaust. In 1944, she was taken to Auschwitz as a teenager and separated from her parents, who were taken to the gas chamber. Surviving on her bravery and imagination, she was able to stay alive until American soldiers liberated the camp. She went on to move to America and received a Bachelors of Psychology as well as a Doctorate.   Dr. Eger is a prolific author and a member of several professional associations. She has a clinical practice in La Jolla, California, and holds a faculty appointment at the University of California, San Diego. She has appeared on numerous television programs including CNN and the Oprah Winfrey Show, and was the primary subject of a holocaust documentary that appeared on Dutch National Television.    In today’s episode, we chat about Edith’s shot at competing in the Olympics as a teenager, her horrifying experience during the Holocaust, how her mental strength helped her survive. We’ll also chat more about how you can use your imagination to protect yourself, how to conquer traumatic experiences, why the label ‘victim’ shouldn’t be used, and Dr. Edith’s best tips to move forward from trauma and guilt. This is such a sobering and insightful episode that you definitely do not want to miss!    Sponsored by BetterHelp: Join over 1 million people who have taken charge of their mental health.

Thanks so much for asking the question about healing through your mind instead of medication! I absolutely loved how Dr. Leaf elaborated on the answer.

Edith has an amazing story and such wise words. I feel like the host is a robot though, carry on the conversation, you just skip to the next question without acknowledging what edith just said.
