Practical, Science-Backed Posts to Support Embodied Leadership & Business Growth

This Week on the Live Your Light Show: 

Today on the Live Your Light Show we have Samantha Skelly who is a 7-figure entrepreneur, international speaker, best-selling author, wellness coaching expert, and breathwork facilitator. For years she struggled with disordered eating and body image issues. She was completely disconnected from her body and tried every method imaginable to “fix” herself. It wasn’t until she discovered breathwork that I truly began to experience real growth, transformation, and recovery.

Since undergoing her own healing journey, she founded two companies: Pause Breathwork and Hungry for Happiness to help others overcome their own pain and struggles. It’s her mission to unite humanity by teaching people to breathe, feel, and thrive.

In This Conversation, We Cover:

  • 0:30 Her journey as an entrepreneur and how it all started
  • 2:48 How she helps her clients through breathwork to clear their mind & emotions to become the best leaders 
  • 3:50 What breathwork is and how it can benefit the mind, body, and spirit
  • 8:15  Who is (and who isn’t) suitable for breathwork & why that’s important

  • 19:30 We talk about her book ,’Hungry for Happiness”, and how it came to life
  • 25:15 How to activate the Embodied awareness to bring us into the present moment
  • 30:21 How she went from being a waitress making $30k/ year to $300k/ year in 12 months — NOT by strategy or shifting into a new energetic space by working on her energy 
  • “The less I work, the MORE I make. Because the less I work, the more I can focus on elevating my energy and energy comes first!”- Sam Skelly
  • 33:45 She shares tangible steps she would take if she were to start a business from scratch today. 
    • Work on your energy

    • Be SO committed to your vision – say no to anything that is not
      • This is where I’m going
    • Consistency creates success
    • Surround yourself with people that are at or above the level you want to be at- be in the energy of what you desire

Hi, I'm Emily.
I like to keep it real & share the good stuff.

+ I’m a mama to two girls, Kahaya and Ayla.
+ I eloped with my husband Andre after 6 months of dating. Good news, it worked out!
+ My family splits our time between Portugal, San Diego, and Mexico, with a LOT of travel in between.
+ I’m the founder of Sundari Swim
+ I’m also an Energetics Advisor at my company Aligned Energetics (check out the link in bio to learn more)
+ I’m passionate about my family, working with entrepreneurs, and EMBODIED LEADERS in any profession
+ I'm not afraid to admit that I like the finer things in life which include luxe travel, a good blow-out, that perfect-fitting pair of jeans, and a long spa but I equally love the simple moments and can rough it like the best of em
+ I love providing my advice or any tips I’ve found on motherhood or wellness or even fashion. On top of my two businesses
+ My work FUELS me. I don’t need a vacation because my life & biz IS the vacation.
+ I’m in love with the community I’ve built which allows me to show up with ALL of me. 
I can be a goofball AND talk about neuroscience. 
I can be a fashion blogger AND read energy. 
I can throw a dance party AND take them through the most groundbreaking breathwork experience…. And so much more. 
I’ve built a business that encourages personal expansion where wealth is the byproduct of authentic, embodied leadership.
