INTRO TO EPISODE:
Hello, Health Investor!
Welcome back to another episode of The Health Investment Podcast!
Today, you’re going to hear from Molly Carmel.
Molly received her Bachelor’s Degree in Social Work from Cornell University and her Master’s Degree from Columbia University’s School of Social Work. After battling an eating disorder for over 20 years and finding no solution in available treatment, she’s made it her life’s mission to help people find a sustainable solution to the battle of obesity and related eating disorders.
Molly is best known for her irreverent, “straight talk no chaser” attitude – it’s been said that she punches as hard as she hugs. She runs her NYC clinic—The Beacon—with wisdom and passion – rigorously training staff, developing programming and helping clients break through barriers hindering success and into a life of recovery.
Aside from being brilliant, Molly is a hoot! After talking to her, I legit considered moving back to New York to be her friend! Whether you’re addicted to sugar or not, you’re gonna love this episode.
While you’re listening, I’d appreciate it if you’d take a selfie, post it to social media, and tag me (@thehealthinvestment)! It’s so fun to see my listeners IN ACTION—and it’s also a great way to spread the word about this podcast!
Alright, I know you’re DYING to hear from Molly—my new BFF—so here she is!
