9 - How the loss of a daughter fueled a career to help others and carry on a legacy, with Monica Muggi Erstad
Play • 1 hr 1 min

Monica reached out to me after listening to podcast episode #7 with "The World's Happiest Taxi Driver", Rod Malone. It turns out that Monica had also met Rod while riding in his taxi in Dublin, Ireland. You won't want to miss my incredible conversation with Monica on today's podcast.

Monica owned a holistic and alternative medicine clinic early in her career but joined "the enemy" pharmaceutical industry after a doctor, who tried to save her daughter Josephine, told her "if you can't beat us, then join us" when she searched for answers about her daughter's death. Monica shares uncanny and spiritual life moments that will give you goosebumps.

Monica Muggi Erstad

Monica lives a very blessed life in Denmark and is the proud mother of a son and two daughters. She was born and raised in a small, seaside town north of Copenhagen, Denmark. She spent a big part of her childhood sailing with my her mother, father and twin brothers. And as a result, Monica has been teaching sailing for the past 18 years. Her career started out working at a concert promotion agency. She then built her own reflexology and alternative medicine clinic before transitioning into a 20-year career in the pharmaceutical industry.
