Courtney Bentley inspires women to live fit, fierce, and fabulous lifestyles. Suffering from an eating disorder as a young girl, Courtney understands self-hate and self-loath. She desires to help and empower other women to overcome their limiting beliefs by being a recurring contributor at CBS Channel 8 Las Vegas NOW and working with companies like eHow.com, Lorna Jane, and West Elm. She also offers programs and hosts the podcast Fit Fierce and Fabulous, with the latter ranking first on the iTunes charts.
Courtney joins me today to share how to start the work within so you can embrace and appreciate who you are. She shares her definition of self-hate and her journey of learning to love herself, how to start building your self-confidence, and how to discover your purpose.
