Massive action after massive adversity is something beautiful to behold – absolutely awe inspiring. Ask yourself, what would you do if you knew that giving up wasn’t an option? Today we’re talking about what it looks like to actually take massive action to change your life in the face of massive adversity.

My guest today is Shontelle Dubois, a woman who doesn’t allow the challenges and obstacles that life has thrown at her keep her down. When you hear her story, you can’t help but be blown away by her resilience, weight loss, drive, creativity and overall amazingness. In fact, you won’t be alone because her story was featured in a Goal Cast video and has millions of views.

Shontelle was involved in a seven car crash that resulted in her doing three years of rehab. During this time Shontelle gained weight, weighing her heaviest ever, 245 pounds. As a single mother, she decided to use her daughter as motivation and lost 105 pounds in five months.

Shortly after though, things became even more difficult. She lost her job, was served an eviction notice, but at the same time, somehow figured out how to stay focused failure after failure while trying to launch a fitness training business.

Her goal-oriented mindset and hardworking ethic allowed her to successfully open her own fitness studio; Shontelle now has a waiting list of over 500 people and also launched food prep business and developed a successful product line.

You’re going to learn so much about massive action from Shontelle’s story.
