A few nights ago, I caught a few minutes of the Biggest Loser TV show.

The segment talked about childhood obesity and showed kids working out and trying to get in shape. I cried. These young kids were beyond huge. It was shocking and heartbreaking.

I had to turn it off because I couldn’t handle seeing beautiful little souls trapped in bodies that were so outrageously big, they could hardly breathe.

According to the CDC, 1 in 4 children is obese, and childhood obesity has more than tripled in the last three decades. That is just freaking insane.

As you know, I’m a huge fan of entrepreneurship and even a BIGGER fan of using massive creativity, in entrepreneurship, to create powerful social change.

Watch this video now and meet my friend Miki, who is not only a badass multi-passionate entrepreneur and athlete, but along with her twin sister Rahda, has launched one of the coolest businesses to empower kids and their parents, to be healthy for life.

The sooner we can get kids (and parents) hooked on health, the more happy and successful we’ll be as a global society.

Here’s what I want you to do now.

1. Share with every parent you know. I truly believe that there’s enormous power in leveraging entertainment, creativity and fun to create lasting change in both kids, and their parents, when it comes to health.

2. Comment below and let me know what you think about this childhood obesity issue, and this video! is still brand new so we’re thrilled to hear feedback and keep producing segments that inspire you and move you powerfully ahead.
