This week on the Wealthy Wellthy Podcast, I interview renowned life coach, best-selling author, and internationally acclaimed motivational speaker Rachel Luna.

In this episode, Rachel shares her compelling story of tragedy and triumph. Having endured the loss of her parents as a child, then becoming estranged from her siblings, and suffering from anorexia, depression, and alcoholism, Rachel used these incredible circumstances to fuel her passion for changing people’s lives. 

She started by changing her own life and has since changed the lives of thousands of people through her coaching, her new best-selling book Permission to Offend, and her countless television and stage appearances. 

In This Episode You Will Learn To:

  • How Rachel overcame the childhood trauma that led her to struggle with self-worth and fear of speaking up
  • The life-changing impact that the Marine Corps had on her 
  • Rachel’s mission to help people break free from emotional bondage and gain emotional, financial, and spiritual freedom
  • In her best-selling book Permission to Offend, Rachel asserts that respectful and empathetic conversations with people who hold different beliefs are more effective and influential than debate or attack
  • Rachel shares her secret to success and happiness (Hint: it includes committing to survival and love!)

Here Are Five of My Favorite Quotes:

  1. “I’m on this mission to set people free from emotional bondage. I like to say I set you free from your mind prison.”
  2. “If you are confident and rooted in what you believe and value, you won’t be upset or frustrated by those who think differently.”
  3. “Instead of fighting to be understood, seek to understand.”
  4. “Courage is being willing to do something despite the fact that you are afraid.”
  5. “Life Coaching is so powerful and transformative, but people should get certified…learn the craft of life coaching…how to listen.”
