He has a clear mission to empower greater wellness in over one million lives through technology.
How Did You Start Using Your Talents?
Josh’s motivation to help thousands to wellness is deeply rooted in a childhood and adolescence marked by weight and health struggles. A partier at age 22, he had a dramatic mind change. “I refuse to live this mediocre life,” he declared, and launched into the self-education about nutrition he continues to this day.
The Most Impactful Turning Point?
Early in adulthood, “I discovered that I really loved connecting with people and affirming them with a positive message,” Josh recalls. “A lot of people in my life have told me that I have a good voice and the gift of gab.” He puts these gifts to work in his podcast.
The Most Powerful Lessons Learned?
“First would be finding the balance. Leaning into my edge, driving forward to be a better human, but also being soft, open and heart-centered. The second would be developing my emotional intelligence. It’s the emotional quotient that really allows for growth and letting go of limiting belief systems,” Josh concluded.
