To break the ice, I asked Peggy…If you could go back in time with whom would you like to spend a day with?
She responded, “I would love to spend the day with Albert Einstein. I think the combination of science and spirituality that comes out of his works is so expansive. I think he gets to so many truths that are missing in our world today that we need to look back and reflect on.”
Some of the questions I asked Peggy:
How did you go from journalism and owning a business to becoming a wellness expert?
How can someone re-invent themselves as you did?
You were loving what you were doing at one point. When that passion turns into something that cause you to feel stressed out, what’s next?

How can we know if our anxiety is normal everyday anxiety or it is something more serious?
What do some of the most outrageously successful CEOs do to relieve anxiety and fear to live a normal life?
