What I Learned at the Longevity Now Conference

A week ago, I attended the Longevity Now Conference in Anaheim, California. It was a packed 3 days from 9:00 am to 9:00 pm, full of inspiration and information.

Perhaps you’ve been talking about doing a cleanse, or starting a new workout, or hiking more, or getting back to yoga… You know what I mean; we often get in a pattern of talking about what we’re going to do to be healthier but never actually doing it.

Could this be you?

Wendy’s Story I want to tell you a story of what’s possible. Before I met Wendy, she used to be like many women feeling that no matter what she did, her body pretty much stayed the same.
