Entrepreneurial Powerhouse Jess Cunningham On Overcoming Trauma and Taking Back Control
Listen now
This week on the On a Mission podcast, I’m joined by Jess Cunningham businesswoman, and television personality best known for competing in the 2016 series of The Apprentice. Jess is a fierce, strong business mind and a powerhouse in the world of entrepreneurship, but it hasn't always been as easy as Jess makes it look. She's experienced life-changing highs, as well as faced earth-shattering lows, including tragedies that would have derailed many. In this frank episode, Jess lays out the details of her sometimes-harrowing story, talks about the highs and lows of reality television, why we should vehemently question the narratives we're being sold around health and wellbeing, and how she's overcome the blackest moments in life to build an impregnable resilience that has taken her to the top of the game.  KEY TAKEAWAYS Sometimes connections take place in life that some refer to as serendipity or coincidence. But the real reason that greatness attracts greatness, is that their energies are aligned. The pains we carry as children often carries through to adulthood in ways we cannot express. They can manifest in physical ways, rather than emotional scars. When they surface, it's imperative that we listen to what our body is trying to tell us. We get our images of success from the media, which is a distorted viewpoint from the start. We need to look inside for the real image of what we want success to look like. Most medical professionals are being taught from a big pharma perspective, and therefore are not open to the fact that wellbeing begins in the mind, and that what fits as a solution for one person may not fit for the populace. We need to question the system and smash the current way of thinking about health. BEST MOMENTS 'My validation was stolen from me as a child' 'Your subconscious will only give you what you're ready to receive' 'You have to feel your emotions to release them' 'The truth always comes out, because you cannot hide the truth' VALUABLE RESOURCES On A Mission - https://omny.fm/shows/on-a-mission   Jess Cunningham Instagram - https://www.instagram.com/theprodigalfox/?hl=en Athletic Greens - http://athleticgreens.com/onamission  ABOUT THE HOST Not so long ago, life was barely recognisable for Ellie McKay, raising three children under five, battling post-natal depression, facing redundancy and walking into the job centre to claim benefits with a double pram, no confidence, and wracked with insecurities.

Following this commitment, she got to work and has now built multiple successful companies, as well as having created a multimillion-pound property portfolio from a standing start.
