Gabby Reece

I gotta be honest: I didn’t know Gabby Reece from girl working the fries when I came across this video a week or two ago. I just like watching Lewis Howes interviews (seems like he’s ACTUALLY LISTENING, not just trying to remember his next question), and YouTube recommends his videos.

I was intrigued by the title of this particular video though. Relationship Success through Self-Worth. Hmmm. Not self-confidence. Not fake it till you make it. Gabby Reece was offering help on self-worth. I imagined the entire video would be about sports.

I was wrong.

Who is Gabby Reece? And Did She Really Say Wives Should Submit to Their Husbands?

Gabrielle Reece is probably most well-known for her modeling career in the 1990s followed by her very successful professional volleyball career. She is a wife, mother, serial entrepreneur, pro athlete, and a woman who understands – to some extent – marriage roles.

In this video, and other places in the media, she speaks candidly about being married to big wave surfer Laird Hamilton and the need for wives to have enough strength to make room for their husbands to be husbands by just being softer, more nurturing and submissive.

Whaaaaaa? Who submits anymore?

Smart women.

Besides the fact that you get to look at Lewis Howes for an hour, Gabrielle Reece offers wisdom, a handful of laughs, and some thought-provoking moments for women who are still trying to reconcile who you are with how you can best serve your family as a woman.

This right here… well worth the time investment.
