I’m here with Mike Bayer, who is all about curating a strong mindset in ourselves and in our kids. Mike is a two-time New York Times bestselling author, founder and CEO of the leading mental health treatment center in Los Angeles, and one of the top life coaches in the world today.
Mike works with A-list celebrities, high performers, and everyday people, and is an advisor to the “Dr. Phil Show” among other places. His work centers around helping people become their best selves. Today we go deep on how to break through anxiety, stress, and fear and learn habits that help us make authentic decisions, and also how to pass this on to our children. Since moms make about 1000 important decisions in a day, I think what Mike has to say will be extremely relevant to our everyday lives!

This episode is brought to you by Wellnesse – my new personal care product line of natural and good-for-you haircare, toothpaste, hand sanitizer and more. You’ve likely heard that much of what you put on your skin gets absorbed into your body, which is a good reason to avoid harmful products, but you can also use this to your advantage by putting beneficial things on your body! Realizing that many of my closest friends still used certain conventional personal care products even though they’d cleaned up many other parts of their diet and home, I set out to create alternatives that outperformed the existing conventional options, with no harmful ingredients, and Wellnesse was born. Our good-for-you haircare and mineral rich toothpaste nourish your body from the outside in while you nourish it from the inside out, for amazing hair and teeth. Check it out at Wellnesse.com.
