Thanks for having me.
You’re welcome so let’s go ahead and get into this tell me about who you were in the beginning and how you got to this place?
So, prior to where I’m at today I spent a good portion of my years on this planet, keep in mind, I’m not even 40 yet, really just miserable. I took life in a scorched-earth approach. I assume that every interaction was a potential threat. I went about pushing others away and making myself a 1-man band. It’s not a way to live. It’s painful and it’s a lonely way to live. I had a really rough childhood and so I had developed all of these ways of managing, that weren’t helping or providing me fulfillment. I often felt myself just tired of being the broken toy in the corner. Which I wasn’t, it was a really poor mental state to be in. I had invested in myself and I decided that I didn’t want to live that life any more. So, I hired a Life coach, a regular therapist, a trauma therapist and I got meds. I started getting exercise. I put all of this effort into finding out who I really was. the happy person that was buried in there, who has been wanting to break out all along but didn’t know how. Today I share my story and I do my best to help others.
Okay great what was the most difficult change that you had to make?
Most Painful; That would have been having to become clean. I was really good at lying and you can only lie for so long before you get caught up in it. So, I was working on breaking the habit of lying and not embellishing my stories. That was really hard to do. Then as far as the most uncomfortable, that was falling in love with myself because for the longest time it felt really hokey, it sounded really dumb to say I love myself. But you have to love the person that you are. Because if you, don’t you can’t love anybody else, fully cuz you’re holding back. Life is much freer if you got love in your heart.
I have talked with you about the importance of nutrition in many of our episodes. I have found a clinically proven product that I drink one packet a day and it gives my body all the micronutrients I need. This is an all-natural product you will love. The packet is filled with superfoods and all their nutrients. Best of all it comes with a 100% Money back guarantee, so there is no risk. Many doctors are now recommending this. Start your day like I do with a packet of nutrition. You are going to want to try this. Goto https://kengerber.kyani.com/ Then if you would like to become a business partner contact me.

Jacquelyn, I want to recognize you in a time when many people have cut themselves off from others. You have found a way to step out and share yourself and your story with more people. That shows how strong you are. I know it will make a difference in the lives of many.
