Today, I share my conversation with diet coach Dee Wolk, who can be reached on Facebook, Linkedin, or Twitter.

Dee specializes in helping people lose weight without doing a specific diet. Instead she helps them look at the way they treat food and their relationship with it.

Today was an interesting conversation because Dee has done more than just be a diet coach.

She’s also had to deal with the sudden loss of her husband.

Not only that, but she also had to decide whether or not to go on food stamps. She chose not to and instead chose to learn how to run a laundry business.

She talks about some of her ups and downs and learning how to make a business more efficient. 

I found today’s episode insightful because dealing with death is always hard, but dealing with death while learning a new business is even harder.

Dee also left you some action items. Listen to the full show to hear them.

About the Podcast

The Hard Thing Podcast
The Hard Thing podcast is focused on helping people improve their lives by learning how to do hard things.

Listen as I interview guests who have overcome average by doing hard things. Each of us has to go up against difficult challenges, but it's not the challenge that defines you. It's your overcoming of the challenge. I'll try and extract the methods used to do hard things so that average people like you and me can replicate their success.
