Master Your Health and Become 20 Pounds Younger with Michele Promaulayko

16 comments

Interested in learning how to build a life and business around doing what you love? So am I. Let’s connect.

When you’re the former Executive Editor of Cosmopolitan Magazine, and the former Editor in Chief of Women’s Health Magazine, not to mention the current Editor in Chief of Yahoo! Health, there are a lot of opportunities that come your way.

But one in particular has taken the attention of today’s guest on  The School of Greatness, Michele Promaulayko.

Around her 40th birthday, this super successful woman realized that health is something really important (and fleeting if we don’t take care of it).

That is why she took all her years of tapping into the best health minds in the world and put her experiences into a new book 20 Pounds Younger.

I first met Michele years ago at a retreat in Tahoe and was immediately impressed with her knowledge and how down to earth she was.

We’ve stayed in touch through the years and I loved sitting down with her to talk face to face about her viewpoint on health, diet, fitness, and meditation.

I know you’ll love this episode because Michele gives practical, actionable tips to start improving your health TODAY.

She also shares what some of her struggles have been and how she is using meditation to overcome them.

I am excited to share this power-packed Episode 125 with my good friend Michele Promaulayko.
