We're all chasing our vision for happiness, wellness, and success. And for most of us, getting to where we want to get to require a great commitment to making relatively simple changes and habits. But for Lani Cooper, experiencing accidental brain damage from a game of rugby has made her pursuit for wellness and entrepreneurship anything but easy.
After a grueling recovery period of re-learning how to be human (use language, basic human functions, recovering memories, etc), she has become a successful stand-up comedian and entrepreneur through her company MOBOT (the first foam rolling water bottles available on the market). She's a great example of the power of a positive spirit, hard work, and the ability for humanity to overcome life-changing trauma.
