Amanda Carneiro - Episode 153

“I think your everything expands in travelling. Your ability to handle the unknown expands”

Growing up with an abusive alcoholic father often leaves scarring and has a lifelong impact on a child.

In 2005, Amanda Carneiro, overcame her lifelong battle with depression and anxiety. She also shed the extra 30 pounds she had put on going through her traumatic experience.

Completely transforming her body and my mind, spilled over to other areas of her life: Her career blossomed, relationships improved, and self-worth sky-rocketed.

She is now a seasoned world traveller, teaching others how to overcome their health issues, how to better understand themselves and their bodies, and how to live more prosperous and full lives!

I really enjoyed chatting with Amanda, tons to learn in this Pod!!!
