097: How to Break Free From Toxicity and Build a Platform for Deep Healing — with Kelli Tennant

What if you discovered your dream job … wasn’t really your dream job at all? Would you have the courage to walk away? Kelli Tennant did.

For Kelli, it all started in college. She went to USC with a volleyball scholarship and dreams of working in TV. Before long, she started landing gigs with ESPN and other networks, and eventually Spectrum Sports in Los Angeles.

Over the next 10 years, she pursued her career as a television host, reporter, and analyst in sports—interviewing some of the greatest athletes on the planet. But something was missing from the conversions she was having. Her heart longed for more.

In March 2018, Kelli left everything behind and created The Platform Podcast to facilitate deep and meaningful conversations with people who are breaking barriers and disrupting the norm.

And that’s just the beginning of Kelli’s incredible story, which she shares on today’s show. As with any success story, Kelli has faced some big challenges along the way.

I know you’re going to love Kelli’s honest and authentic take on entrepreneurship and the lessons she shares from her own experiences. Plus, she’ll challenge you to ask yourself the tough questions and find the answers within yourself.

In this episode, you’ll hear:

  • Kelli’s courageous journey from toxic “dream job” to wellness advocate

  • How your brand and business can (and should!) evolve as your life changes

  • Ways toxic chemicals can manifest in our lives, plus steps you take to cleanse them from your environment

  • How to overcome fear and show up for yourself and others, even when you feel terrified

  • The power of looking within yourself for answers to life’s big questions
