Episode 228: True Grit and Grace with Amberly Lago

Amberly Lago is a Peak Performance Coach, TED Speaker, Podcaster, and a leading expert in the field of resilience and transformation. She is the best-selling author of the book “True Grit and Grace,” and the founder of the “UNSTOPPABLE Life Mastermind.”

Through her book, coaching methods, and masterminds she has curated unique tools to teach others how to tap into their superpower of resilience and elevate their lives and businesses. Amberly has most recently been featured on NBC's The Today Show, The Doctors, Hallmark, and today I'm so excited to share her incredible story of surviving an accident where she was t-boned on a motorcycle and told she had a 1% chance of avoiding amputation, and after dozens of surgeries is now walking, speaking, coaching, and leading so many women into an empowerment movement. She also shares a little of her journey with recovery and why it was so important to her to get honest when she had a one-day slip that led to a reset in her sobriety date. We also talk about why Amberly's masterminds, and teaching others to speak and tell their stories, is her chosen passion in life, and why YOU have a story that needs to be told. If you need a boost of inspiration in your life, then today's episode is just for you.
