This week’s episode is a powerful one! We’re talking all about pain, trauma, and coming out on the other side of it all. It’s so vitally important to learn how to transform your pain into your power and not let it rule your life.


Our guest today, Brittany Piper, has been through some incredibly traumatic events in her life but has also gained so much from them. She has used her pain to empower her life, her relationships, her experiences, and overall, to elevate her existence. And in this episode, Brittany shares her entire journey with us. She speaks about her sexual assault, her addiction to alcohol, her brief time in jail, the passing of her brother, and how through it all she has persevered and found her purpose and joy. She also tells us all about the work she does now traveling the world sharing her story, helping female inmates overcome trauma, and ultimately, helping others to find opportunities in their pain and struggles rather than succumbing to them.


We really hope you tune in to this week’s incredibly powerful episode with Brittany Piper and reflect on your own journey and pain. How can you transform your pain into your power?
