Who doesn’t want to be well fed?

My very first guest has taken that question and luckily answered it for all of us, creating a phenomenon along the way.

Melissa Joulwan, author of the the Well Fed cookbook series, has had quite the unlikely path from the corporate world to the creator of her own mega-successful website, The Clothes Make the Girl, a paleo classic, stuffed to the gills with delicious recipes and captivating stories that draw you in.

In this episode of Harder to Kill Radio, Mel and I chat about how she got roped into roller derby, how an unlikely blog idea blossomed into a business, and her paradoxical idea of what it takes to become unbreakable. Not only is Mel a colleague and someone I greatly admire for always sticking to her guns and marching to the beat of her own drum, she’s a wonderful friend. I’m thrilled she’s here as my first guest.
