Turning Your Dreams Into Achievable Goals W/ Lucia Giovannini
Today we are joined by Lucia Giovannini, which is a very Italian name – and a wonderful conversation, too!
Lucia Giovannini is a former Italian super-model turned a best-selling author, spiritual teacher, transformational coach, environmental & animal activist. Her best-selling book “A Whole New Life”, published by Hay House India, sold thousands of copies around the world, was translated into 8 languages, and will be debuting in the US in March 2019.
I sat down with Lucia to talk a little bit about mindset, and a little bit about setting goals and how we achieve them – but also, just to learn what are the skills that she took away from a highly successful career in modeling, and how she transferred those forward.
I think you'll get some useful reminders, and some interesting new perspectives in this episode.
I certainly enjoyed it, and I'm sure you will do so too!
