As someone who cares for sick and dying patients, hospice and palliative care physician Dr. Luyi Kathy Zhang has learned a thing or two about living. 

The good news is you don’t have to wait until the end or to lose someone you love to get a second chance at the life you truly want. 

With episodes covering topics like health, relationships, mindset, productivity, business, fulfillment and happiness, you’ll learn how to apply the lessons of the dying before it’s too late so you can create a life you genuinely love. 

Dr. Zhang’s expertise as a mindset and integrative life coach/hypnotist also means that each episode is packed with actionable strategies to help you see results FAST.

Each week brings warmth, compassion, authenticity, and humor to topics like what it takes to lead a life well-lived, finding your purpose, being your authentic self, impostor syndrome, perfectionism, taking action despite fear and so much more. 

If you’re ready to make a change in your life and aren't afraid of some uncomfortable conversations along the way, then tune in to discover how to transform your life and lead from the heart with purpose, passion, perspective, and peace
