Kelly Brogan is a holistic psychiatrist who has gone through a radical transformation in her career. When she began her career she was — as she says — great at prescribing drugs. But after an experience treating her own thyroid condition, she put down her prescription pad. In the nine years since then, she’s focused her work on treating and healing her patients with more natural solutions. In her new book, Own Your Self, Kelly shares how she believes people can become free from depression, anxiety, and fatigue and finally become their real selves. Learn more about Kelly on her website KellyBroganMD.com and connect with her on Youtube, Instagram and Twitter @KellyBroganMD.

Ever have an underwhelming experience ordering flowers online? I’ve had many and our guest today became committed to fixing that problem and has created a multimillion dollar business. Christina Stembel knew she always wanted to start a company, living in San Francisco where it seems like everyone has a successful startup. She was constantly brainstorming ways to disrupt old industries. Eventually, she found herself with a million-dollar idea. Flower delivery. It was a rough start, unable to raise any money, Christina bootstrapped her company, starting with $49,000 in savings. Thanks to her drive and determination, she was able to weather the trying times, and there were many, to grow Farmgirl Flowers into a 23-million-dollar business. That’s how much they made last year in revenue; $23 million from flowers and Christina has her sights set on growing this to a billion-dollar company.
