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.

Ever wonder how Netflix became the giant it is today?   In this episode, we are chatting with Marc Randolph, co-founder and first CEO of Netflix. Marc is a veteran Silicon Valley entrepreneur, advisor, and investor. As founding CEO of Netflix, he laid much of the groundwork for a service that’s grown to 150 million subscribers and fundamentally altered how the world experiences media.   Marc’s career as an entrepreneur spans four decades. He’s founded or co-founded six other successful startups, mentored hundreds of early-stage entrepreneurs, and as an investor has helped seed dozens of successful tech ventures. Most recently, he co-founded analytics software company Looker Data Sciences, where he now serves as director. Outside of the tech and startup world, Marc sits on numerous other company boards and is an outdoors enthusiast.   In this episode, we discuss how Marc started his career, his wilderness experiences that shaped his leadership style, and the importance of experimentation. We’ll also talk about why there’s no such thing as a ‘perfect’ idea, how Netflix rose to dominance, and Marc’s perspective on the importance of culture.  Sponsored by -    Restream.

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.
