🎙 About The Episode
"Anxiety is a fixation on thinking about the future, that uncertainty of what might come. That's what entrepreneurship is, you're constantly creating a future that doesn't yet exist. - Dan Murray-Serter
Everything we do is controlled by our brain. Our actions, thoughts, beliefs, emotions, our entire physiological function are all governed by a single organ. But when was the last time you actually put your brain first? Our brains are our bodies CEO and when we don’t get the braincare and nutrients we need our physical and mental health suffers - something Dan Murrary-Serter knows all too well about.
After a journey of depression, anxiety & insomnia, Dan found his remedy in nutrition and co-founded smart supplement brand Heights. Dan is also the host of the UK's Top Business Podcast, Secret Leaders, Co-Founder of Foundrs, writer at Forbes covering UK Entrepreneurship and Communities and an Angel investor. In the episode Dan chats to Ali about his mental health, spiritual and entrepreneurship journey.
