We have a special episode today – I interview Lori Nikkel, CEO of Second Harvest which is our charity for the Wellness Business Summit this year.

She shares her inspiring journey on how she’s become the person she is today, and shares some amazing insights on how to create a vision and a goal that can guide you to think outside of the box. We cover why it’s important to have a very specific mission (it’s easy to get distracted), and why it’s important sometimes to say “no”.

I will see you in the episode!
