37: Redefining Social Anxiety & Unlocking Your Human Potential

Welcome to episode 37 of Optimal Health for Busy Entrepreneurs.

What’s it like to be shy, quiet, and so nervous that you can’t be the person you’re truly meant to be? It’s certainly not fun. Take my word on that and today’s guest, Mark Metry.

The Mark you see today isn’t remotely close to the Mark of yesterday. Weighing over 220 lbs with a bevy of chronic illnesses such as depression and even flirting with the idea of suicide—Mark has radically transformed his life. I invited Mark onto the show to discuss this transformation. This episode was packed with jewels and contained a little bit of everything. Here’s more info on Mark:
