142: Minna Lee of Live24k on Creating a Fulfilling Personal Life, Reducing Inflammation with Hashimoto’s, and Behind the Scenes of Building a Business

November 7, 2018

In this episode I’m chatting with Minna Lee, founder of Live24k, personal trainer, nutrition coach, and lifestyle blogger. To start, Minna and I discuss the overglorification of being busy and the importance of slowing down to create a fulfilling personal life. She shares more about her own personal health journey, including how she found out she had Hashimoto’s and the diet and lifestyle changes she has made to put her autoimmune disease into remission. We also discuss the stigma around medication, how to handle food elimination diets if you have a history of an eating disorder, and the importance of self-care. Minna also discusses how golden milk improved her health and why she founded Live24k. She shares what it’s really like starting a business from scratch, and we discuss what it’s like working with brands and influencers on social media.
