My guest today has such an interesting background. She’s had the pleasure of working with individuals in healthcare over the last 18 years. Seniors in nursing homes, small children — she says she’s had the privilege of being able to witness life from the very beginning to the very end. She believes that when adequate resources are available to all of us the biggest determinant of health becomes our relationship to ourselves.
Destiny Spurrell is trained as a naturopathic doctor, she is a mother of three (aka the CEO of family orchestration), and the co-founder of Soul Spark Sisterhood.
We had a really interesting conversation today because we explore the connection between purpose and health outcomes, the idea of personal leadership, and what we can do as individuals — to not only optimize our own health — but to contribute to the world in a really big way. We got super practical around how to set boundaries in our lives, the elements that go into the creation of a perfect day, how to balance family and career, and how to connect to ourselves and a strong community of women.
