In our celebrity-driven culture, it’s easy to fall into the trap of focusing solely on our outward appearance and the image we want to project. It’s especially tough when you grow up in the fashion world as Suze Yalof Schwartz did.  Through her hard work, she became known as The Fairy Godmother of Makeovers and a lynchpin of outward transformation at Elle, Marie Claire, and Vogue and many shows, including The Oprah Winfrey Show.  But now, she’s focusing on a more legacy-driven mission that centers around transforming people on the inside first all through a minimum of ten minutes a day.


On Episode 191 of the Are You Being Real Podcast, I sit down with Suze Yalof Schwartz, founder of Unplug Meditation and author of Unplug: A Simple Guide to Meditation for Busy Skeptics and Modern Soul Seekers.  She talks about why she went from a ‘dream job’ in the fashion industry to her new meditation venture with Unplug, how meditation can truly be accessible for anyone, and some really great tips for stress, self-consciousness, and making every day a unique experience.  Join me on her 30 Day Challenge to inner peace and transformation through meditation and download the Unplug App today!
