Show Notes

Ever find yourself getting caught up in your own headspace? That's all of us, right?! Join me for a special conversation with Chloe Edwards as we talk about optimizing your mindset - something she calls a "Pineapple Mindset."

Chloe Edwards is the CEO & Visionary at Pineapple Mindset, the first of its kind, self-empowering coaching for adoptees. A sought-after speaker and influencer, she has spoken around the world to youth and adults about her adoption journey. Helping others to see the beauty and gratitude in adoption.

Chloe almost let depression and anxiety take her life. From being adopted from South Korea at the age of 5 months old, she grew up in a suburban neighborhood always wondering “am I good enough?” After constantly looking outside herself to find value, she learned that the real way to cultivate self-confidence was to dive deeper into her emotions. After years of research, interviews with adoptees, and personal experience she wants to share with everyone how to have a Pineapple Mindset.
