“The truth is, if we can’t be who we desire to be in the “now” moment with whatever life is giving us, we’re not going to be that person when the circumstances are great either.” – Alexi Panos

Someone who is truly the definition of this, is the strong, brilliant Alexi Panos. Alexi is a master coach and trainer, serial entrepreneur, investor and mom of four!

She is making strides in her industry and changing the game (for the better) for everyone around her. 

Not only do I admire her professionally, but I also admire…

  • The relationship she’s cultivated with her husband and business partner Preston Smiles (especially after the last year when they had to decide whether they actually wanted to stay together. FYI she’s spilling all on this episode!)
  • How she’s been able to raise four kids under four years old (yup!) and maintain her sanity, health and happiness
  • The dedication she has to creating sustainable wealth in her life

We’re covering all of the above in this episode.

Alexi is a true pioneer, and I couldn’t be more excited to have her over on the I Heart My Life Show.

Listen in as she and I discuss success, maintaining energy, alignment, motherhood, and everything in between.

I hope you love this episode as much as I did!

“The truth is, if we can’t be who we desire to be in the “now” moment with whatever life is giving us, we’re not going to be that person when the circumstances are great either.” – Alexi Panos

“We do so many things that the coaching industry is not even touching because we really saw a need for coaches to be fully equipped to work with a whole human and not just mindset, and not just talking about our past, but really working in the parts of the body that support the shape that we want to take on in the world.” – Alexi Panos

“The biggest macro issue was being a female in a male-dominated industry. It was so interesting, and so challenging, because I just didn’t expect it. But I was constantly met with people not taking me seriously […] So that was a really big challenge. But what was interesting is it made me have to get over my own stories of smallness and my own stories of what it means to be a woman or a man in this industry and all my judgments.” – Alexi Panos

“Preston and I both wanted to make each other happy. So we would put our needs aside to make the other person happy, to make sure they felt good, to make sure things were stabilized because stuff was busy. And in that people pleasing, there’s withholding. And in that withholding, there’s closure. And in that closure, there’s disconnection, and in that disconnection, so much can happen.” – Alexi Panos

“Preston and I always had coaches along the way, because we believe in it, obviously, we’re in this industry. But your coach or your therapist can only take you as far as you’re willing to be honest with yourself.” – Alexi Panos

I started I Heart My Life from my kitchen table in a tiny London apartment in 2013.

After going through a 5-year quarter-life crisis, I discovered the world of personal development and the power of a gratitude journal and finally got clear on my true purpose in life: to help women fall in love with themselves and their lives. I Heart My Life has gone through many transformations over the years, but its mission has always remained the same: we exist to teach you how to create a life that you love.
