Top 3 Take-Aways from this Interview

  • Top business leaders actually leverage well-being by “protecting the asset” (their body, mind, and spirit) to amplify success and allow themselves to show up with more power. Rather than burning out, they RISE.
  • With the body, mind, and spirit core optimized, not only their time but also their potential is leveraged, and thus we are seeing evidence of astonishing accomplishment professionally and personally.
  • A full-blown crisis – even a pandemic – can actually uplevel every area of your life if you approach it with a specific, leveraged, carefully planned strategy.
