Episode 70: It's Up to God and YOU with Leah Bryant

Jun 16, 2023


If you are a little down on yourself today, then listen up. On today’s episode, my guest is going to share her story of how she went from being partially paralyzed to a wheelchair to walking without assistance.

Her story is powerful, it involves taking one step at a time, and I think it’s going to surprise you.

My guest today is Leah Bryant. Leah is the "podcast ninja" who helps coaches learn how podcasting can grow their audience of raving fans and increase their income.

Leah has published over 700 episodes for over 25 podcasts in just a little over two years. Including mine. Yes, this is the same Leah Bryant who is my podcast producer. She has the biggest heart to serve others, and she loves being behind the scenes but after hearing this interview, I know you will agree with me that her story and her message needs to be shared with the world.

Leah is not just my podcast producer, she has become a close personal friend who I love and adore and she fully embodies the gratitude builds fortitude spirit.

I’m excited for you to listen to this interview.


Together, we will unpack:

  • Leah Bryant shares her journey with paralysis and her experience of learning to walk again
  • The importance of taking time to feel emotions during the recovery process
  • Why being patient AND grateful can help you persevere in unexpected situations
  • Leah's career path and her transition into podcasting and entrepreneurship
  • Finding miracles in unexpected situations
