Laura Coe, Healthcare Entrepreneur

Today’s guest is an author, blogger and certified life coach whose mission is to help people shed the emotional weight keeping them from finding fulfillment.  Laura Coe founded Emotional Obesity after undergoing her own struggle.  At 35 years old, Laura had everything one could want according to society – she had a high-powered career, beautiful home and car, healthy bank account, loving spouse, a child and great group of friends.  It was in this moment that Laura realized she was “Emotionally Obese” after suffering a build-up of pressure to conform to society’s narrow definition of success.  Laura quit her job and looked into opening a yoga studio but found that practicing yoga and running a studio were two totally different endeavors.  Laura then returned to her first passion, studying philosophy to help find an answer to her problems. In taking up studying philosophy again, Laura realized that since the dawn of time, philosophers of the East and West have spoken about the importance of health and emotional well-being.  It was then that Laura‘s personal journey, her study of philosophy and development of an effective emotional health and fitness plan became Emotional Obesity.

Three takeaways from our interview:

  1. 30,000 feet in the air, bursting into tears – the moment she decided to quit her job and change her life forever.
  2. Shedding the emotional weight that you’re carrying through life.
  3. How to define happiness. It’s tricky, but Laura’s got a formula.
