Show Up Hard…Lessons on Parenting, Life, & Business with Trina Gray

I am so fired up to have one of my best friends, Trina Gray, on the show today, who just happens to be one of the most driven & successful entrepreneurs I know. She’s also one of the best parents, coaches, and life-transformers I know as well. Trina and I go way back to when she joined my Mastermind in 2007, and she has continued to flourish and serve in so many capacities. We share many commonalities, and today we are talking about parenting, life, lessons learned, and our love of coaching people to a higher level. 

My friends, today’s episode will inspire you to live your best life with harmony and joy. Listen in and hear Trina share her immense wisdom on:

  • Lessons learned in running a health club for over 15 years but most importantly the last 1 ½ years during COVID-19.
  • Thoughts on where the industry is heading over the next 1-3 years.
  • The three stages of parenting… parents listen up!
  • As a busy Mom, lessons learned on how to live her best life personally.
  • How Trina is coaching & serving women to lead their best lives also.
  • What brings Trina the most joy in her life these days.

I hope that you find great value and inspiration in today’s SHOW. Please share it with your community, family, and friends and have them subscribe to our podcast, that would be amazing. As always, thanks for what you do!
