    My Healing Journey | Crina Okumus, Podcast Host

    My Healing Journey | Crina Okumus, Podcast Host

    After interviewing more than 30 people as part of the first season, I decided to turn the table and look into my vulnerability to share my personal healing journey with all of you.

    My friend, coach, and former radio host Lea couldn’t have been a better interviewer. She knows how to align mind and body as she regularly trains her spirit, which helps her being a successful athlete. She trains me for Thai boxing every Thursday morning and challenges me with many mindful topics. Unfortunately, her life experiences wouldn’t fit in a book. So instead, I encourage you to follow her on Instagram to learn more about her inspiring life and personality.

    This episode is about me, but I’m never comfortable being the center of attention. So telling my story, sitting on the How Can I Heal podcast chair is a way to express my gratitude toward this project and help you understand it better.

    As a way to introduce myself very quickly, here it is: I’m Crina, a Romanian born in Bucharest, but who’s moved around Europe and America for more than 12 years.

    Today, I’ll talk about:
    • Why this Podcast?
    • My Healing Journey: How It Started, and How It’s Going.
    • The Lessons from Motherhood and Having a Daughter
    • My Key Takeaways from My Two Favorite Episodes So Far from the Podcast
    • My Vision Behind How Can I Heal?
    • My Future Projects
    • What’s Life Taught Me So Far.

    So please join me on an honest discussion that I hope will inspire you as much as my previous guests have inspired me.

    You can now watch it on YouTube or listen to it on all regular platforms like Apple Podcasts or Spotify.

    How To Build Your Skincare Routine with Valerie Roy, model (pt.3)

    The beauty world is full of myths and urban legends, arguably even more so when it comes to skincare. And while I am not saying you shouldn't listen to the sage skincare advice your mom or grandma gave you, the truth of the matter is, many of the common things we've been lead to believe are that-myths.
    So to help separate fact from fiction, I decided to invite a good friend of mine that her skin looks just perfect, she is working as a model in the fashion industry for more than 20 years, doesn't have any commercial interest, and loves to share her long-term secrets that make her skin look perfect - Valerie Roy: 

    The discussion is split into 3 parts: 

    1. cleaning
    2. acids
    3. moisturizing
    Valerie Roy, having started her modeling career at Elite Model Management in New York City, successfully became ‘face of the brand’ for numerous products, secured product endorsements, and worked with prominent brands including the following: Gordon’s Gin, Ford Motor Company, Savana Drinks, L’Oreal, Coca-Cola, Stern’s, Nestle, Tag Heuer, Rolex, Bentley, Jafra Cosmetics, Dunhill, Estée Lauder, Stella, Donna Karan, Martell, Woolworth’s Beauty, Philip Morris, and Almay. 
    She has been featured in several magazines throughout her modeling career such as Cosmopolitan, Marie Claire, Elle, WWD, Shape, Oprah Magazine, Femina, Stitch Fashion Magazine, Kai Zen magazine, and Runner’s World. 
    She functioned as one of the top models on Project Runway and the accompanying program, Models of the Runway, amassing a positive reputation under the constant scrutiny of reality television. Furthermore, she has acted in television shows such as Black Box, Power, in addition to numerous television commercials.

    Her relentless work in helping refugees, women, children, and the elderly in Africa has been widely commended by both governmental and non-governmental entities and has earned her several recognitions and awards;
     In 2010 She was awarded the Peace Medal from the Lombardia Region.

    How to Find Your Purpose in Life | Amy Matthews, Life Coach

    How to Find Your Purpose in Life | Amy Matthews, Life Coach

    In this week’s episode, I talk with Amy Matthews.
    Amy is a strategist, consultant, and business coach, and founder of Woman UnRuled. Her
    expertise is in accelerating entrepreneurs, executives, and rising stars to reach their highest
    potential of success.
    Earlier in her career, Amy spent 10 years in executive search. Prior to recruiting, she held
    executive positions in Silicon Valley where she led global sales and service teams to
    consistently overachieve objectives. Amy is most passionate about empowering people to live
    a life on their terms.

    We talked about fears and insecurities, how to learn to trust yourself in life, and to find the right path for you. Amy has done a lot of work with clients to help them overcome their negative, and she unpacks why we carry limiting beliefs with us into adulthood.

    Together, we discuss:
    • Being authentic and true to yourself
    • The prevalence of imposter syndrome
    • How to connect to nature
    • Stepping outside your comfort zone
    • Learning to trust yourself

    Amy’s life could easily be a movie. She’s created huge success for herself and has traveled the world. She’s experienced deep love, nurturing friendships, and has a loving family. But she’s also experienced great loss and gone through tough times. She lost millions of dollars, had her heart broken more than once, and has met with many struggles and disappointments. I find her motivation and courage hugely inspirational, and I hope that you will learn something from the way she approaches life.
