Every once in a while, you meet someone who is the epitome of eloquence.
Someone who inspires you with her gentle strength, loving heart and fierce determination to make this world a better place.
That woman is Tammy Tibbetts, founder of She’s The First. Tammy and I connected last year, when we sponsored nine amazing girls through Tammy’s organization in honor of Malala Day.
(Huge shout out to our STF scholars – Idda, Makesh, Maimuna, Rachel, Swastika, Mariamawit, Mary, Irma, and Elizabeth!)
In today’s episode, you’ll learn how Tammy went from selling prom dresses to launching a global organization that has sponsored over 1,254 years of girls’ education in low-income countries.
The goal is creating first-generation graduates and our next generation of global leaders.
Because as research has shown, when you educate a girl, you change more than just one life. You change the world.
While I adore this entire conversation, I really want you to listen for this…

Every summer for nearly ten years now, I have a ritual I look forward to. It’s nothing fancy or complicated.
Just a simple practice that’s introduced me to new ideas, new people and — most often — to new parts of myself.
That ritual is taking yoga class with an extraordinarily gifted woman named Colleen Saidman Yee, author of the new book Yoga For Life.
For me, her classes are transcendent. I laugh. I sweat. I cry. (Not always in that order.)
Inevitably, I walk away from my time with Colleen stronger in my humanity, more loving towards my body and softer in my heart.
Often, I find myself trying to remember insights and fresh ideas that always seem to download into my consciousness out of nowhere when I’m in her class. That’s why I’m so very thrilled to introduce you to her today.
If you ever struggle with feeling crushed under the weight of trying to be perfect, fulfill all of your responsibilities and stay in touch with the sweetness of life, I think you’ll truly enjoy this episode.

Today’s episode is a real eye-opener. Especially if you’re a parent, hope to someday be a parent or — you have parents. Honestly, I believe this show is a must watch for us all.
Because no matter what stage of life you’re at, I can’t imagine you wouldn’t want a more loving and connected relationship with your family.
After all, any iota of “success” (however you define that word) can be empty and meaningless without people you love to share it with.
The other reason I think you’ll love this episode is the refreshing level of honesty and transparency of my guest, Dr. Shefali Tsabary, author of the NY Times bestseller The Conscious Parent.
She offers some delightfully contrarian ideas about parenting, and she’s completely candid about how challenging this path can be — even for her. (Which her daughter is all too quick to point out 🙂 )
Finally, this interview highlights a skill that I believe is the key to greater happiness and fulfillment for us all. The ability to tune in (and listen to) our own inner voice.

You know when you keep hearing someone’s name over and over again?
And then you discover the person is more kind, warm and impressive in real life than you could have hoped?
That’s how I feel about Grace Bonney, founder of the wildly popular Design*Sponge, the legendary design blog reaching over one million readers a day.
We’re all fans of Design*Sponge here at Team Forleo, and I could not be more thrilled to share this interview with you today. In this inspiring episode, you’ll learn:

Last week, we were shooting a bunch of new videos at the studio.
Over lunch, a big talk bubbled up about drinking enough water. Especially how water makes your skin glow, turbo charges your energy, helps you sleep and wake up easier, and keeps everything “flowing” if you know what I mean.
So for the past week, my water consumption has been even higher than usual — and I gotta say, I feel amazing.
It’s wild how something so basic can so easily be taken for granted, right?
That’s why I’m particularly excited to share this conversation of Scott Harrison of charity: water with you. Not only is this one of our most inspiring episodes of the year…
It’s also a chance for you and I to do some incredible, world changing good, together. More on that in a moment.
