What happens when you literally lose everything? Today’s podcast guest, Danette May, is no stranger to heartbreak and loss. But as you’ll hear in this incredible conversation, while rock bottom can be an incredibly painful space to find yourself... it can also be the birthplace of something amazing.

Danette May is one of America’s leading healthy lifestyle experts, and the founder of The Rise movement. She's got a long list of achievements to her name — including world-renowned motivational speaker, #1 best-selling author of seven health and women's empowerment books, a former celebrity fitness trainer, along with being a loving wife and mother.

Danette’s journey of transformation began after losing her son during childbirth, getting divorced, and finding herself with $47 to her name, all in quick succession. With life as she knew it torn apart, Danette found herself alone and hurting at rock bottom. With incredible bravery and determination, she began to focus on healing… and from there, figured out how to transform her health, mindset and lifestyle, in order to create a life she truly loved. In this episode, she’s pulling back the curtains on her transformation process, so that we can learn how to stand fully in our power and construct the life of our dreams.

      I was listening to this episode and felt disappointed in the part about cutting negative people out of your life. Feels harsh. Rather than excluding them, shouldn't there be some effort to welcome them to rise as well? Maybe offering a more positive point of view to those gossiping hairdressers... giving them the chance to be more compassionate about the people they are talking negatively about. Not everyone can be as mindful about their actions, but this shouldn't mean that they are left to suffer. I understand the need to protect yourself from negative influence and being selfish in that way, but I think what's more important is act with love in situations of hate. Be the change.

        Hey Jamile, thanks for your comment. Just to be clear no one said anything about acting from hate instead of love. My intention is to always come from a place of love and sometimes that looks like not putting yourself in the firing line of someone who is being very harmful, hurtful and negative. You can still be kind and loving and simply choose not to stand in the firing line or to engage in that low vibe conversation. But you can do it in a kind and loving way which is always my intention. Does that make sense honey?
