We’re here to talk about how sometimes the biggest changes and transformations come out of the most unexpected moments in your life — moments that may have seemed like the end of the road at the time, but end up opening an entirely new life for you.

Our guest today, Elissa Goodman, is a great example of this. Sometimes the signal to change has to get so loud and right in front of your face to the point where you can’t ignore it. For Elissa, that was cancer and the passing of her husband. Sophie has known her for a decade now and she is incredibly inspirational. She came from a completely different upbringing than the way that she is living today. So join us and listen in to hear about her health journey, the incredible mindset shifts and changes she has made in her life, and her advice for breaking out of the negative, repeating cycles some of us find ourselves in.
