When you’ve gone through something awful in life — one of those real sucker-punch moments that nearly knocks you over — and you’re finally out the other side, what comes next?

To answer this deep, life-altering question, I’m joined by Dr Neeta Bhushan, a former cosmetic dentist turned emotional health advocate, podcast host and best-selling author. 

Tune in to hear Neeta’s unique and empowering insights on normalizing the messy moments in life, how to find joy in amongst the chaos, a surprising framework for dealing with grief, the transformative power of living with intention, practical tips for having uncomfortable conversations (even if you’re full of fear), tiny ways to triumph when everything feels sucky, and how to practice exquisite self-care during challenging times.

Whether you’re dealing with heartbreak, loss, the passing of a loved one (or 3, like Neeta), or any other form of setback or disappointment, you’re going to find so many moments of pure gold in this incredible conversation.

About Dr Neeta Bushan

Dr. Neeta Bhushan is a world-renowned emotional health advocate and expert in the areas of grit and resilience. She has shared her thought leadership on international stages (including the Women’s Economic Forum in India, Google HQ, Mindvalley Afest, Evercoach XP Experience & Mindvalley University), as host of her popular podcast (The Brave Table) and in best-selling books (such as, Emotional GRIT: 8 Steps to Master Your Emotions, Transform Your Thoughts, and Change Your World). Neeta’s been featured on Forbes, Entrepreneur, NBC, Verve, Tatler Magazine and more.

Dr. Neeta sold her large million-dollar cosmetic dentistry practice helping people transform smiles to spark inner greatness. As part of her own journey to becoming a leader in her field and a voice for immigrant women and women of color, she traveled across 45 countries researching human behavior, ancient eastern philosophy and therapeutic psychology. She pooled that learning along with other challenging life experiences (which include being orphaned at a young age, surviving an abusive marriage, and extensive loss) to found several institutes, including the Global GRIT Institute, a wellness education platform for optimizing emotional wellbeing for entrepreneurs.

Dr. Neeta lives in Austin, Texas, with her husband and two children. Her book, That Sucked. Now What? How To Embrace The Joy In Chaos And Find Magic In The Mess, is out now.
