“It’s amazing a thought can have that much power over your life.” –Laura Coe (Click to share – thanks!)
A Note from Charlie:
I’m really excited to introduce you to Laura Coe, who is a newer friend and a really fun person to talk to. Laura has years of corporate experience; she built a successful multimillion-dollar healthcare company and then sold it and decided to follow her passion. Thing was, she wasn’t quite sure what her passion really was when she did that, and so she plunged into the world of entrepreneurship and the ensuing roller coaster journey that comes with it.
Laura’s background also includes undergraduate and graduate work in philosophy, which of course, is why she’s so fun to talk to because she and I share that common background.
Now Laura writes and talks about a concept that she calls “emotional obesity,” which I’m certain almost all of us suffer from. In today’s episode, Laura explains not only what emotional obesity is, but where it comes from, why we can’t really avoid it, and what we can do to tame it.
About Laura Coe:
Laura Coe is an entrepreneur, author, and certified coach, working to help people find fulfillment one day at a time through daily emotional workout routines, nutritional thoughts, and other tools.
Laura co-founded Litholink Corporation, a healthcare company serving more than 350,000 patients per month nationally. When Litholink sold to a Fortune 500 company, Laura left corporate America to pursue her lifelong passions.
Now she devotes her energy to writing and coaching to help others implement spiritual teachings in their everyday lives. Her first book, Emotional Obesity, is scheduled for release in January, 2015.
