LifeUP Coaching with Isabel welcomes Julia Legian in this episode that explores the resilience of the human spirit.

Julia was born in 1972 in South Vietnam. Truth be told, nobody in her family really knows her real date of birth as during war time people had other priorities than birth registries.

Julia endured a horrific and extremely tough childhood. This is the subject of her memoir The Ugly Daughter. In the early 80's, her family managed to escape Vietnam as one of the “boat people” and after a few years in a refugee camp in Malaysia, they immigrated to Australia, where Julia lives to this day.

In the mid-90’s, Julia found herself a single mom struggling to pay bills, about a 100 thousand in debt and almost homeless. She met her husband in 2001, became a successful property investor and started her own real estate business. She retired in 2013 to focus on writing. She recently published her memoir and has become an internationally bestselling author.

Check out Julia and her memoir, The Ugly Daughter.
