What do you do when the world as you know it explodes out from under you? You pick yourself up, start healing, and move in a different direction. Listen as Vicki Bradley shares her story of going from corporate retail leader to conscious executive leadership coaching while raising two children on her own. Vicki was doing the damn thing. She was a President in the corporate retail space. She was traveling and making waves and taking care of everything and everyone in her sphere, until one day she couldn’t anymore.

Hours before she was supposed to get on a flight from Toronto to Dallas, she woke up in bed completely unable to move. This was the first episode in a series that would finally take her away from the career she loved and had been building for her entire adult life.

Then the question became, what next?

When you’re used to driving yourself to the absolute edge in order to take care of everything and everyone, what do you do when you have to stop?

Vicki’s story is a powerful example of what burnout can do to the body and what it looks like when you finally come out of the dark pit. Listen in to hear it all! Hopefully she’ll inspire you to make bold changes in your own life.

“I truly believe that if we are listening, our bodies will tell us what is happening.” Vicki Bradley
