Stories That Inspire Us welcomed to today’s podcast, Samantha Lander. (Please be advised that some strong language is used within the audio and video of this podcast - please do not listen or view this podcast in the presence of children or others who may be offended.)
Samantha is a single Mom, personal trainer, functional diagnostic nutritionist who DJs on the side. She owns two businesses and has been her own boss for over 20 years. She’s raw, authentic and shares a very vulnerable side of herself. She recognizes her strength, the adversity of her story, and continues on a path to share her vulnerability in a way that certainly inspires others.
She held nothing back and some may say that she alone created her own drama. She fully accepts the results of her actions, accepts the fact that it was her normal at the time and as bad as those “bad” times were, as she has learned from them.
By her own admission, she destroyed her life, several times over. She led a partying, crazy life which led her down the path of no-return. Again, she fell, but she kept getting up. When Sam puts her mind to do something, no matter what that something is, she achieves it - good, bad or indifferent, she owns it.
Until, she didn’t own it and accepted the fact that she was going to prison. She realized that she had let go of her demons and relinquished control to a higher power and quite honestly, was relieved that her actions were finally given a consequence.
You may say that she fell apart - she stretched the limits, recovered, and came back under her own terms. This was a normal pattern and familiar way of life for her and in her own words, “I’m pretty stubborn!” Pretty stubborn to be her own boss and a Mom and that’s what I love about Sam! Direct, to the point and there is nothing off-topic!
Sam is very active on Social Media and through her business, SeeFit, she educates people in a fun way when it comes to being healthy. She provides bi-weekly IG lives on all things health and wellness and LIFE. She has been featured as a guest on over 20 podcasts educating people through her own personal journey and education. (“Stories” I think is one of her favorites!)
“I love to talk on all the various topics in my life as long as it can help someone else.” “Be proactive; not reactive.”
Sam is straight up authentic!
