“There is nothing stopping you from taking that biggest crisis that knocked you down and transforming yourself. It could be the boldest, most amazing version of yourself that shows up if you just do the work.” -Debi Silber

Time heals all wounds definitely does not apply to the heartbreak caused by betrayal. As unfair as it is, the victim is left to figure out how to put the broken and smashed pieces of his/her life back together. Needless to say, it is a cruel journey ahead. But what if you can use that nightmare to create a stronger, better, and more beautiful version of yourself? In this episode, Kim interviews Debi Silber, the Founder of Post Betrayal Transformation (PBT) Institute on how to do just that. Kim and Debi kick this conversation off by discussing the difference between resilience and actually being transformed. Debi also talks about the 5 stages of transformation, 3 discoveries about betrayal that will make you believe that healing is possible, how to stop betrayal from repeating itself, how to deal with family betrayal, how self-betrayal manifests, and why you should be deliberate about the motive behind extending forgiveness. Of course, we all want transformation, but where do we even begin? Listen in as Debi shares 4 questions to guide you out of victimhood to victory!

Also, discover practical ways you can set boundaries and expectations, be accountable, and finally, move on to a fresh start. Listen in and you'll be surprised to know that some of the worries holding you back aren't as bad as you think they might be!

“You need to be self-centered. People need to invest in themselves… You are a single entity and you need to find out what's going on with you and then make those decisions based upon what makes you unique.” - Dr. Anthony G. Beck

This week, Kim and Dr. Anthony G. Beck reveal the secret to true productivity. We’re not talking about software, and plug-ins, and complicated tech stuff. We’re talking about creating an environment conducive to productivity and prioritizing your health. Everybody is telling you how to be healthy, whether directly from a health coach or indirectly from advertisements and social media. The thing is, the only way for you to be healthy is to understand what your body needs and the context around your lifestyle. If stress, anxiety, or depression is getting the best of you, listen as Dr. Beck discusses 4 factors you need to consider before you resort to medication. Also, find out how to determine which diet is best for you, why exercise and play is crucial to being functional, and what misconceptions about health have misled most people for so long. Of course, health is not limited to your physiological make up. Rediscover activities that deserve a sweet date on your calendar. Your well-being is an investment that guarantees the highest ROI. So don’t go for the bandwagon. It’s a personal matter. Remember: Taking care of yourself is taking care of your business.
