By age 29, Daphny Bravo had climbed quickly through the executive ranks at Macy's, promoted 8 times in 9 years and managing $300 million dollars in annual retail sales. On paper - a major success straight out of business school. But it took her body shutting down, a hurricane, and ultimately pregnancy to confront what she knew deep down: she wasn't in the right place, and 'success' wasn't exactly what she'd been sold.

In a deeply introspective conversation, Daphny takes us through the process of becoming a dramatically different, fulfilled version of herself - mentally, emotionally, and physically. On the way: long aimless walks, an unexpected yoga guide, and...paper. Lots of paper.

Today she's the founder and creator behind DLaurenB Paperflorals: gorgeous paper flower creations sold around the world. She also recently co-founded Moguls of Infinite Opportunity: a community of women created to elevate each other in their personal and professional lives.
