What happens when you lose everything? Well, if you can embrace adaptability and reinvent yourself, says Ami McKay, you can emerge more powerful than ever before. If you need a new beginning, then this episode is for you.

In this episode we learn:

  • embrace adaptability and reinvention
  • build a supportive and positive team and internal network
  • draw strength from resilience
  • prioritize joy from within
  • step out of your comfort zone and leverage past learnings and a measured mindset when faced with risks and challenges



The best piece of advice I’ve ever received came during a pivotal moment in my life when I was torn between pursuing my passions in the healing arts through massage therapy and expressing my creativity through visual arts. I sought guidance from an older mentor who posed a profound question: “What’s the struggle?” In that moment, it became clear to me that the true essence of my calling was to create art that not only heals but also contributes to the creation of healthy homes and environments.
