episode 38: choosing your mission over validation with Grace Smith

Why she’s amazing:

A renowned hypnotherapist, Grace is on a mission to make hypnosis mainstream. She’s the author of the #1 new release, Close Your Eyes, Get Free: Use Self-Hypnosis to Reduce Stress, Quit Bad Habits, and Achieve Greater Relaxation and Focus and is founder of gshypnosis.com, the world’s #1 hypnotherapy hub, as well as Grace Space Hypnotherapy School.

She is a regular guest on CBS’s hit show, The Doctors, and her work has been featured in The Atlantic, Marie Claire, Forbes, MindBodyGreen, Buzzfeed, Bustle, InStyle and more. Grace’s private clients include celebrities, CEOs, professional athletes, and government officials, and her keynote speeches and workshops have taken her to Ozyfest with Hillary Clinton, Women Empowerment Expo, the Ritz Carlton, PSE&G, Soul Camp, Verizon, HypnoBiz NYC, Procter & Gamble, Summit.Live and more.

As you’ll hear, Grace and I met while in Italy back in June and I instantly fell in love with her and her work. In fact, I had a pretty life-changing experience after a group hypnosis with her and highly recommend checking out her website gshypnosis.com, which is in the show notes, for tons of great hypnosis recordings for things like anxiety, weight loss, depression, forgiveness, and more. Grace is amazing and I can’t wait to share her with you today.
