Today's guest is a lady that I heard on a show, and loved the passion for life, and the leap of faith that she took so dramatically.
Several years ago, she was diagnosed with clinical depression and suffering from drug addictions, eating disorders and corporate burnout, she hit rock bottom.
And in that position of rock bottom, in that darkness she found the light.
She realized she had the power to bring herself to happiness…and that is exactly what she did.
Yep leap of faith time came beckoning, and she left her high-powered job in advertising to follow her heart and engage in the work she does today.
Now this isn't a story, when as soon as she landed from the leap she hit the ground running and had it all planned out.
She started her journey, and began documenting her odyssey on the website she had built "playwiththeworld.com."
And now her dream to be a writer, happy, inspired and and of course an inspiration to many across the world has come true, and she is the bestselling author of Find Your Happy, an Inspirational Guide to Loving Life to Its Fullest, and a six-time contributing author to Chicken Soup for The Soul.
Her work has been recognized in media outlets across the world such as Good Morning America, Good Day New York, Inside Edition, HuffPost Live, Health Magazine and Australian Vogue and she is an online columnist for Huffington Post, MindBodyGreen, Healing Lifestyles & Spas and The Daily Love.
Wow, everything she does is to help us connect with our true self and without apology to live your authentic purpose.
She teaches people how to courageously follow their heart.
So can she remember the night before she went into her advertising job and told them all.."I'm off to follow my heart"?
And does she see now the world with different, knowing eyes, and cant quite understand why the rest are struggling to see things the same way?
Well lets find out as we bring onto the show to start joining up dots, with the one and only Shannon Kaiser
