About Gila Kurtz: Gila is a #1 international, best-selling author and serial entrepreneur, who found her deepest passion for working with dogs and their people.

In this episode, Jennie and Gila discuss:
- How the hardships they experienced in the business of direct-selling led to a lot of personal growth
- Improving yourself and reinventing yourself by making a decision to change
- How you can be your own ALPHA
- How diving into discomfort could trigger positive change
- Remember “ALPHA” – commit to self-leadership by becoming more Aware, Letting Go of Limiting Beliefs, Pursuing with a Purpose on Purpose, adapting Habits and Accelerating the process.
- We’re always a leader in something. But the one person that most people have difficulty leading is themselves
- Magic moments of self-improvement happen outside your comfort zone.
- Make a decision to reinvent yourself by letting go of limiting beliefs and adapting habits that will get you where you want to be.
“Nothing changes until the pain of where one is at becomes greater than the pain or discomfort of the act of change itself” — Gila Kurtz
