Through being a young athlete, moving countries, becoming a wife and mother, Idalis has experienced every level of trauma and continues to come back stronger than ever. She has come back through injuries, accidents, postpartum stress, and a complete and total loss of identity to help other women navigate those same waters.
Listen as she shares her inspirational story and why she keeps thinking of others as she builds her empire and authority. Her story of perseverance and a never-ending belief that she can make it through, is something to strive for.
If you’ve ever had moments that you’ve felt completely down and out, come back to this episode and remember that you too can make it back to health and life.
