Heart of a Champion
Our special guest today is part of the Compete community. Karen lives in Austin, TX and has competed in the Crossfit Games. She’s done amazing things in her life, including kicking cancer’s ass.
In this episode, we talk about what it was like for a woman in her 30s and athlete in a rising sport to battle cervical cancer. Karen shares what she went through to even get a diagnosis, processing what her diagnosis meant for having a family, and giving hope to people who fight challenges like her.
Karen is an inspirational leader. I admire her for who she is as a woman and the fight that’s in her spirit.
Success is a Mixture of Hard Work, Preparation, and Luck.

Transformation Shifts Your DNA
Salt Freedom and I connected this summer in Las Vegas at Amplify. As soon as I met her, I knew I needed to get her on the show and introduce her to the Compete community.
After winning her own 13 year battle with an eating disorder, SALT combined her insider knowledge and her training in holistic health to create SALT ED FREEDOM - a radically empowering and holistic eating disorder treatment method that challenges the status-quo recovery goals and treatment standards. SALT ED FREEDOM was created specifically for brave, rebellious woman, who don’t just want to recover. They want freedom.
Salt and I talk about her story and what went into starting her business. We talk about what’s behind addiction, how we need to transform ourselves before we help others, and getting past imposter syndrome.
