[4:54] Starting line: When Maggie was 22, she was going to school to be a nurse practitioner when her 'body cracked.’ Multiple doctors were unable to diagnose her health ailments.


[7:57] Dr. Doom: A specialist diagnosed her with a rare kidney disease and told her nothing could be done. She was prescribed IV therapy 3x a week for the rest of her life…then scheduled to see him again in 6 months.


[8:35] Tipping point: "After that, I got in my car and bawled my eyes out and knew that I'm the only one that cares enough about me to go the extra mile and figure this out."

[14:12] Business model development: Maggie started planning her future in functional med during her maternity leave in January 2017.


[15:17] Turning point: “I have an obligation to spread my words with people who are struggling and still going to traditional medical doctors for these things and decided enough is enough.”


[18:16] Healthy Transformation: Within 6 months of following her mentor's protocol, Maggie's symptoms disappeared. She also got pregnant after thinking it wasn't possible.

[23:28] First client: Paige was a 22-year-old woman who struggled with skin issues and bloating. They met in a sauna at a gym.

[26:42] Sacrificing security: Maggie left her secure nursing job to pursue her passion full time. "Even though I see less people, I'm making way bigger of an impact than I did seeing 50 people every single day, giving them pills at the hospital."


[28:07] Shift to 8-figure clients: Through networking and mastermind events, she started attracting a mix of high-end entrepreneurs, socialite women, and successful executives.
