Ep 80: Julia Lundstrom – Dating The FBI’s Most Wanted Bank Robber
In This Episode
Before becoming a CEO, Julia Lundstrom hit rock bottom when she discovered the love of her life was on the FBI’s Most Wanted list.
Things spiraled downhill from there. She drank heavily to cope with the pain. When that didn’t work, she resorted to workaholism.
Ironically, Julia’s obsession with work finally snapped her out of the depression, but she was left wondering what had just happened in her head. This started an epic journey to understand what was happening deep inside her brain.
Now, she’s a brain health expert who runs Simple Smart Science, a company that develops supplement products that boost and improve your everyday performance.
In this episode, you’ll find out how Julia helps the older generation of entrepreneurs double their brain power, and show you how to optimize your brain’s health too.
