It is always a pleasure to speak with my colleague and good friend Dr. Michelle Peris. I’m honoured to have been interviewed for her new Rebel Talk Podcast. I was her second interview following an incredible episode with my sister and the other half of MINDSHIFT NINJA, Ayla Khosroshahi. It’s a podcast for women who are leaning in and trusting the potential of their power, and open to having candid and meaningful conversations about health and tapping into their intuitive self. You can listen to our conversation on iTunes here.

From Michelle Peris:

I am honored to have Dr. Yashar Khosroshahi in this episode, he is the other half of MindShift Ninja (check the first podcast and find out about Ayla, the co- founder!). Dr Yashar is a Naturopathic Doctor and a Brain-Based Executive Coach who trains people to overcome physical and mental obstacles to reach peak performance.

This inspiring episode will help you connect first with yourself and your purpose before trying to correct yourself. Dr. Yashar highlights the power of true connections and the awesome impact that has on every human being; this is the foundation to become a real leader, it is not about knowing all the answers or believing there is such thing as perfection.

Evolution is the only constant variable, everything changes, and  it is in our nature to shift and transform to become the best version of ourselves. Find the courage and tools to get unstuck, free yourself from old patterns, as Dr. Yashar says use the challenge as a compass towards significance!
