Founder of Thriver Lifestyle, TEDx & Keynote Speaker, Business Coach & Bestselling Author Marian Bacol-Uba’s life in Miami looks completely different from when she moved from Los Angeles six years ago. She shares how she lived a double life of “checking off all of the boxes” while also have a long-term relationship with drug and alcohol abuse. That is, until she overdosed in 2014. She shares what life has been life since she’s uprooted her life to Miami, FL, and how we have the power to change our narratives from living a victim and survivor mindset to a thriving mindset.
