MOTM #292: Autonomy for Autoimmune Warriors with Daniela Spear

Monday, April 19th, 2021

My guest this week is the tiny-but-mighty Daniela Spear. Daniela is actually a member of my Mafia, and she had the guts to ask to be here on the podcast. After the way she pitched herself, how could I say no? 

Daniela is a autoimmune movement coach and a self-proclaimed Lupus warrior. She coaches individuals with autoimmune disease to take ownership of their health and find a lifestyle that works WITH their autoimmune disease, rather than against it. No one knows more than Daniela, exercising with autoimmune disease doesn’t have to be painful and exhausting… in fact, it can be the secret to reducing flare-ups and living a “normal” life.

Daniela’s growth and transformation over the past few years has been a sight to see, and it really shows in this episode. We discuss the importance of autonomy and ownership—of your health, your business, and your life— and the incredible power of just asking. We could all learn a thing or two from Daniela.

In This Episode You'll Hear:

  • Working with women who have autoimmune disease
  • Too much exercise having a negative effect
  • Pageantry and confidence building
  • Autonomy is missing from our healthcare system
  • The psycho-social aspect of Lupus
  • Learning to work WITH autoimmune disease, instead of in spite of it
  • Who does Daniela work with?
  • Getting hired by EXOS
  • How to know when it’s time to move on
  • If you don’t ask, the answer is always no
  • What’s next for Daniela?
  • What resources to invest in first
