My guest today is not just a one, but a TWO time breast cancer survivor, which is not once inspiring but DOUBLY INSPIRING. (I really couldn’t come up with something more creative there.) Caryn Sullivan spent nearly 20-years working in the world of sports and entertainment largely at Disney & ESPN and the Minnesota Timberwolves, crushing her job in that intense environment by fueling herself with good ol’ Diet Dr. Peppers and endless bags of baked quote unquote “HEALTHY” chips. It wasn’t until her wake-up call with stage IV cancer  that Caryn changed her focus from looking good to being well. She launched her blog Pretty Wellness to chronicle her journey toward wellness by sharing stories and lessons learned through her own hardship and has since been a champion in motivating peeps to thrive in their lives. Caryn’s been seen on The Doctor Oz Show, Hallmark Channel’s Home & Family and inspires thousands to embrace wellness in the motivational speeches she gives throughout the country and in her motivational interview she gave me right here, right meow!
