Noelle Cordeaux believes you can hack your brain for positivity and offers us the basic neurobiology that offers a "user's guide" to your brain and biology. She shares the importance of understanding the signals your feelings provide, so that we can then bio-hack our system to move from our limbic brain, back to our logical pre-frontal cortex. Sound complicated? Not if you learn to read your own signals and agree that "it is impossible to make a good decision when you are having big feelings."

She brings her daughter, Holland, with her to board meetings and believes the conversation surrounding whether women can "have it all" is sexist.

A graduate of Emory University and the NYU School of Law, Amy practiced corporate litigation with a focus on high-profile First Amendment matters for over a decade in New York City and Seattle. She also served on President Obama's National Finance Committee where she co-chaired Gen44, the under 40 fundraising arm of the campaign.

Valerie Gangas lost her mother in 2011 and experienced profound life-shattering grief. It was a huge turning point in her life, as it caused her to go into a deep suicidal depression, “a complete annihilation of who I she was."

(Hence, the name of her upcoming podcast is: “Everything You Think You Know Is Wrong!”) Valerie is a transformational speaker, life coach and author of Enlightenment Is Sexy: Every Woman’s Guide to a Magical Life. She specializes in helping people make radical shifts in their self-perception to gain a deeper understanding of who they are, so they can genuinely thrive and unleash their magic more fully into the world.
