Laila Ali Trusts Her Intuition

CEO and Boxing Champion, Laila Ali has always marched to the beat of her own drum. Laila talks to Ashley about the trials and triumphs of following in her famous father's footsteps as a young woman. Despite initially lacking her dad’s approval, Laila defied the odds and claimed her spot as one of the boxing greats when she became an undefeated world champion. After retiring from boxing, Laila says shifting her public image from a professional fighter to a homemaker presented a new challenge, but authenticity helped her overcome. Today, as a mother of two and CEO of Laila Ali Lifestyle, Laila maintains a champion’s spirit as she continues to trust her gut, stay true to herself, and pursue her dreams.
