01:18 Hey guys, this is Stu from 180 Nutrition, and I am delighted to welcome Erika Flint to the podcast. Erika, how are you?


01:26 I am excellent, Stu. How are you doing today?

Stu: 01:28 Yeah, really good thank you. Really good. Thank you so much for sharing some of your time. First off, before we dive into the questions, I'd just love it if you could, for all of our listeners that may not be familiar with you or your work, just tell us a little bit about yourself.

01:42 Sure. Well, about seven years ago, I was a software engineer, and I was working in Silicon Valley on different software platforms and programs. And when I realized I needed something more out of my life. And I went through a really low point in my life. And through that adversity on the other side, I realized I needed to do something different. And so, this is when I found hypnosis. And now, I am a three-time bestselling author on hypnosis. I'm an award winning hypnotist, and an award-winning a hypnotherapy instructor. I have a hypnosis center here in Bellingham, Washington. We're about 90 miles north of Seattle, Washington. And, where I have four other hypnotists who work at our center. And we help people with a variety of things. Most of my time is spent teaching people how to become hypnotists. So, helping people do that, and then also helping people lose weight, and slow down on the drinking, and get rid of anxiety. Those are the three areas that I really focus on helping people with.
