Today Jim Piper not only welcomes his guest Bella Sirpilla to the show but also his guest co-host Erin Porteous! Bella shares how her drive and obsession to be perfect eventually became too much to handle.  Ultimately leading to struggles with depression and self doubt.  Her struggles with mental health eventually led her to a better understanding of herself and a new direction for her life.  Bella now works as the marketing director and buyer for Laura of Pembroke, a home furnishings and interior design company.  She is also a public speaker sharing her message of positivity and self awareness.

If you’d like to talk to Bella about speaking at an event you can find her on LinkedIn at:

You might remember today’s co-host, Erin Porteous, from Episode 8 of The Today Counts Show.  Erin is CEO of the Boys & Girls Clubs of Metro Denver and a recent recipient of the Denver Business Journal’s Outstanding Woman in Business award.
