How to Change The World Without Being An Expert - Suze Schwartz of Unplug Meditation
When you discover a passion that can save your life, how do you dive in head first without any background knowledge whatsoever? Suze Schwartz, founder and CEO of Unplug Meditation was by no means an expert of meditation when she had the idea to open a meditation studio. But knowing that this is what she’s meant to do gave her the gumption to curate a community of meditation and mindfulness teachers that has now transformed people all over the world. She shares how meditation can change your approach to stress, how to listen to your customers, and how to let your thoughts dance with the moments of being present.

TAKEAWAYS FROM THIS EPISODE:
Don’t live with the regret of never trying something new.
Be the owner and the client. Create something that’s missing in your life.
You don’t need to be an expert. You can be the curator. You still have a part to play.
You will learn everything as you go.
Stress is optional. We get activated and irritated. But when you’re aware of it, you can press pause, self-soothe, and move forward.
Meditation is not about turning off your brain. It’s a dance between your thoughts and being present.
Your customers have the best advice. Ask for feedback, listen to them, and implement their suggestions.
You don’t have to do anything alone. Barter your skills for the help you need.
Meditation can be as easy as 1-2-3.
You don’t need to be the richest or smartest person. If you have a dream and a passion, you can make it happen for yourself.
