Welcome to this episode of Bucci Radio!

Do you think you need to be “perfect’ in order to serve your clients with integrity as a coach? Do you have the desire to serve others but don’t yet feel confident in your own transformation? The health/fitness coaching industry is changing. If you’re a coach that wants to help your clients dig into their feelings, unconscious patterns, and reasoning for not doing what they know they are supposed to be doing, this episode is for you. 

Today’s guest is Samantha Skelly. Sam is my magical unicorn fairy friend, and she’s one of the biggest visionaries I’ve ever met. She’s constantly connecting to her higher purpose and bringing that shit back down to earth. If you guys don’t know Sam, she’s the owner and creator of Hungry for Happiness, and she’s essentially creating a new sector of coaching. Sam is bringing people into higher levels of consciousness with their coaching so they can serve their clients with what they really need.
