In this episode of IDEAS+LEADERS I am speaking with Ryann Dowdy about creating a safe space for every woman to come together and be fearlessly themselves. Ryann is a founder of Be in the Room - the exclusive community for female leaders that want success on their own terms. Ryann Dowdy did everything RIGHT in life. She had her dream job, 6+ figure salary, married, kids, and a nice home... and still woke up one day feeling completely unfulfilled. She knew something wasn’t right. She realized it was because she was chasing a dream that wasn’t hers. As an expert in sales, she created a Facebook community of over 7,000 women looking to follow their dreams of starting a profitable business. Women began joining her sales training program not only for the incredible knowledge and results Ryann brought to the table, but also for the amazing community of empowered women Ryann sought to create. As she found more success on her journey, Ryann realized she still felt alone and misunderstood by her peers. That’s when she realized SHE herself did not have a community to come as the truest version of herself. Today, Ryann’s mission is to create a safe space for every woman who has ever been told she’s too much, too picky, too loud, too ANYTHING to come together and be fearlessly themselves.

40. Maintaining Immunity and Health in Business - Eric Edmeads
In this episode we are talking with Eric Edmeads about maintaining immunity and health in business. Eric Edmeades is an accomplished entrepreneur, author and the architect of several highly effective and transformational seminars, workshops and retreats around the world. However, his intersection with the health and fitness industry was an accidental one. Suffering for most of his teens and early 20’s with severe allergies, sinus troubles, throat infections and acne, he was only weeks away from a surgery to take out his tonsils when a friend of his urged him to attend a personal transformation seminar. That seminar ended up not only clearing up 10 years of chronic symptoms but it changed everything he believed about health and food. Since then it has been his life’s passion to help people wake up to the reality that, in terms of health, they are off course. That the human and financial cost of our current way of life is far too great. His years of research on the “human diet” — the diet that we humans are meant to be on — led him to develop the WILDFIT Challenge, a step-by-step system to quickly transition people to this revolutionary way of looking at health and fitness.
