On this week's episode, we throw it back to an early-quarantine conversation with Coach Harvey Martin, MindStrong Ambassador Brian Peters, and our good friend/mentor - Coach Dar.  The trio takes a fun and relevant dive into emotional intelligence with a ton of gold nuggets - specifically how the pandemic is forcing people to understand themselves and their triggers better through change.

Many of us know Coach Dar as a friend, an inspiration, and the embodiment of abundance, but here is a more formal understanding of who she is straight from her website:

"As a Board Certified Occupational Therapist, business executive, author and speaker, she is passionate about helping people break through barriers to achieve their goals. Recently named Senior Fellow of PathNorth – an organization comprised of world leaders and CEOs of Fortune 100 companies, her powerful message continues to reach a global audience.

As a mental and conditioning coach, she blends a knowledge of science, psychology and achievement with her personal passion for life. The result? Individuals, corporate executives and professional athletes & teams aim higher and achieve more. Additionally, Coach Dar is a trailblazer for Phoenix women and was awarded the Most Inspiring Woman from WNBA. It is her unique style and approach during, transformational seminars, high impact speaking engagements, and exclusive one-on-one sessions that has helped people say no to the status quo, to raise the bar in their lives, to break free so they can breakthrough, and to reignite their hearts to live a purposeful life.

From her experience as a Board Certified Occupational Therapist, to a healthcare executive, to Chief Operating Officer of a record label, to Chief Performance Officer at a fast growing jewelry company, to a mentor to global leaders, CEOs and athletes, Darleen has a proven track record of leading people and inspiring positive changes that impact lives."

Most recently, she became the Chief Kindness Officer of Kindli, a brand new organization and global mission that aims to spread kindness through content, donation, events!
