I had so much fun with this interview today because it was the perfect coming-together of themes that I’ve been talking about with clients and patients all week long: the notion of confidence and finding your authentic self.
Our guest today, Razi Berry, is a mother of three, health advocate, badass entrepreneur, business woman, and a role model to me and so many others. She is the editor of the naturopathic news and review website NDNR and the host of the website Natural Path — and together they receive over one million hits a year!

This interview is full of nuggets about finding your inner badass, driving your business, and how to really find that reconciliation of someone who’s not always the loudest voice in the room, but can be just as powerful.
