Background: I’ve known Melissa for years and watched her grow her business over the years, always appreciating what she did for her employees and the community. But I never knew how much she was suffering inside, dealing with the stress burnout that being a hyper-achiever brings – especially one dealing with trauma, insecurities, and an eating disorder. In this week’s episode of Reflect Forward, Melissa shares how she overcame her loneliness and burnout, lost over 100 pounds, successfully exited her tech company, stayed retired for 33 days and now founded The Peak CEO, a coaching company focused on helping CEOs unlock their full potential without burning out. Her story is emotional, relatable, and courageous. I know you will love this interview about total transformation – you can’t help but want to reach out to hug her and then go out and change your life.
