They are from many different disciplines: women's health, naturopathic medicine, integrative medicine, osteopathic medicine, obstetrics, gynecology, professional counseling, life coaching, trauma therapy, nutrition counseling, homeopathy, exercise physiology, sleep education, acupuncture, sex therapy, pelvic floor therapy, and sexual counseling.

Our Spotlight Interviews are incredible! In addition to learning about each expert's specialty, Thriver Nation members get to ask that week's Contributing Expert questions during the interview.

Examples include respected coaches/educators like Mel Robbins, Dr. Caroline Leaf, Dr. Daniel Amen, Jennifer Allwood, Brene Brown, Rachel Hollis, Lysa TerKeurst, and more! Your host, Jan James, does the heavy lifting for you. Jan takes each popular expert's work and compiles it into bite-sized chunks for our THRIVER NATION members.

Learning just a few new things every week will create forward momentum for you and will help you move toward a THRIVING life!

Whether you find the time to watch the training from these coaches or not, at the end of every eight-week session, you’ll receive a printable e-book that will provide you with the highlights of what we learned throughout that session, as well as actionable strategies to incorporate into your life!

Mel Robbins

Mel Robbins is the author of two incredible books: The 5 Second Rule: The Fastest Way to Change Your Life and The High 5 Habit: Take Control of Your Life with One Simple Habit. Mel’s straight-talk coaching and science-backed wisdom is easy to understand and implement — be prepared to laugh, learn, and launch yourself into a more confident, happy, and fulfilling life.

Mel will teach us how to —

  • Change your attitude, your mindset, and your behavior
  • Interrupt uncertainty and negative self-talk
  • Flip self-doubt, jealously, fear, and unworthiness into powerful motivators
  • Build rock-solid confidence in simple ways, every day
  • Prioritize yourself and make progress on what’s important to you
  • Stop overthinking and take action
  • Build a deeper connection with yourself
  • Swap habits you need to break with habits you need to create
  • Put yourself first so EVERYTHING will change

April/May 2022 Expert:

Dr. Caroline Leaf

Dr. Caroline Leaf has spent the last 30 years researching the mind-brain connection, nature of mental health and formation of memory. She was one of the first in her field to study how the brain can change with directed mind input (neuroplasticity). Throughout her years of clinical practice, she has helped hundreds of thousands of people learn how to use their mind to detox and grow their brain to succeed in every area of their lives including school, university, and the workplace.

Dr. Leaf's research explains that everything you do is first a physical thought in the physical brain. You think, and then you do, which cycles back to the original thought, changing it, and the thoughts connected to it, in a dynamic interrelationship. Therefore if your thinking is toxic, then your communication and behavior are toxic, and vice versa.

She frequently lectures to both Christian and secular audiences worldwide, linking scientific principles of the brain to spiritual, intellectual and emotional issues in simple and practical ways. She speaks on diverse topics relating to optimal thinking, and brain performance.

Dr. Leaf is also the bestselling author of Switch on Your Brain, Think Learn Succeed, Think and Eat Yourself Smart, and many more. She teaches at academic, medical and neuroscience conferences, churches, and to various audiences around the world.

June/July 2022 Expert:

Dr. Daniel Amen

Dr. Daniel Amen is a double-board certified child and adult psychiatrist, brain imaging specialist, and the medical director of Amen Clinics. As a 12x New York Times bestselling author, including Your Brain Is Always Listening, and a world-renowned neuroscientist, Dr. Amen has pioneered the use of brain imaging in clinical psychiatric practice.

Dr. Amen has helped millions of people change their brains and lives through his health clinics, best-selling books, products and public television programs.

The Washington Post has called Dr. Amen “America’s most popular psychiatrist” because of his wildly popular clinics which have over 4,000 patient visits a month and has the world’s largest database of functional brain scans relating to behavior, totaling over 180,000 scans on patients from 155 countries.

August/September 2022 Expert:
