My guest today cooks on TV, plays music in the streets, and often finds her foot in her mouth. She also happens to be an Ivy League neurobiologist; speaks six languages; and has had her writing published by Forbes, CNN, Vogue, Rolling Stone, and Edible Boston. She's the founder of Mad Bod, a program through which she helps women who feel desperate, hopeless, and stuck in their bodies to feel fit, focused, and free for life.

The queen of starting over, she has learned the art of forming deep connections through curiosity, courage, and taking chances, despite the fact that she says her alter-ego is Larry David.

In this episode we explore:

  • her thoughts on leadership: “Leadership is being at the front of the parade and helping others with direction and speed. I used to always stand in the front row because I am short. Now I can’t imagine being anywhere else.”
  • her view of people as a human puzzle, and how her love of understanding other people has helped her be a better leader.
  • her recent major breakthrough that came when she realized she had spent most of her life trying to be who she thought she was supposed to be and flipped her mindset to accepting who she actually is.
  • her views on how people are people no matter how famous they are, and how that mindset has led her to meeting and developing relationships with an amazing variety of people, both famous and not.
  • how she stresses genuine gratitude and connecting to others through abundance and authenticity.
  • how her journey to feel better about herself lead to her starting a successful business teaching women how to change their lifestyles to feel better about themselves.
