Show Notes

My guest today is Kristina Mand-Lakhiani. Kristina is the co-founder of Mindvalley , the world’s most powerful platform with 20 million followers, who learn a wide range of categories from mind, body, soul, entrepreneurship, career. Kristina has been in the personal transformation industry for over 20 years and is an international speaker, entrepreneur, artist, philanthropist. But how did Kristina get here? And what’s next? We have a lot to learn from Kristina’s journey.

In this episode, Kristina shares what it was like to grow up in erstwhile USSR and how it impacted not only her childhood but also her early career and education choices.

We also talk about how to own our flawesome. And Kristina talks about how she did it,  especially when the stages (literal and metaphorical) got bigger and shinier?
She also shares her favourite frameworks for some of us who are ashamed of what they think are their flaws: a strong accent, lack of confidence, fear of public speaking, job hopping etc

And finally, we talk about what it was like to write and publish her first book. We covered a lot in this conversation, and hope you enjoy it as much as I did!
