    #119: The Way of Integrity with Martha Beck

    In this episode of YAP, we are talking with Martha Beck, bestselling author, life coach, and speaker. Martha is known for her unique combination of science, humor, and spirituality and famous for being Oprah Winfrey’s life coach. Her written work includes several international bestsellers, as well as over 150 magazine articles. 


     


    Martha holds three Harvard degrees and for over two decades she has been, in the words of NPR and USA Today, “the best-known life coach in America.”Her published works include several self-help books and memoirs, including New York Times and international bestsellers Finding Your Own North Star, The Joy Diet, and Expecting Adam. Martha’s newest book, The Way of Integrity: Finding the Path to Your True Self, was an instant New York Times Best Seller.


     


    Tune in as Martha will share how not telling a single lie for a year drastically altered her life, and how to know if you aren’t following your truth. We also chat about culture vs. nature and get into an emotional discussion about something I’ve been personally going through. And lastly, we’ll get Martha’s guidance on how to live our life with the utmost integrity and her alternative to a hustler’s mentality.

    #118: Never Give Up with Amberly Lago

    #118: Never Give Up with Amberly Lago

    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!

    #117: Let Go To Grow with Trent Shelton

    #117: Let Go To Grow with Trent Shelton

    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.
