In this episode, we stripped off the layers and got real vulnerable.

Episode #59: Meg & Beck // Imposter Syndrome, Finding Your Purpose, & Looking Back on the Past Year

Well…it’s been a FULL YEAR of doing this thing called the Detox & Chill podcast.

We wanted to share a solo episode with you all…and truth be told, we recorded this one time and decided that it was a LITTLE too personal. It was right before our event, and our imposter syndrome was rearing its ugly head.

But guess what? Post-event, we KNOW without a doubt that it was absolutely right that we put on this event and it was absolutely right that it was in LA.

Episode #58: Summer Passion Project in Santa Monica // Sex, Relationships, and Stepping Into Your Power

Well, we honestly are struggling with the right words for our event in LA on Saturday.

This is a topic that is near and dear to our hearts and a conversation that we’ve wanted to open up for a LONG time. We never could have imagined a year ago that we would be a part of an event like this, or that we’d be surrounded by such insightful and supportive women.

The good news is that if you missed the event and panel, that you can check it out on this weeks’ episode! We covered the amazing topics below…

Episode #57: Erin Claire Jones // Human Design Guide & Leadership Coach // Human Design: 101

This week we dove into a new topic that we’re SO excited to share with you!

A little background…human design is basically the manual to YOU. Founded by media executive and art enthusiast, Ra Uru Hu, the ancient-meets-modern-science is a synthesis of spiritual studies including, but not limited to: astrology, the I Ching, the Chakras, and the Kabbalah. Hu first found the system in 1987 in the heart of Ibiza, but it is studied worldwide today (thank you Erin and Forbes article for this background!).

Human design gives us insight into how we are all uniquely wired, and there are four types - generators (70% of the population), projectors (20% of the population), manifestors (9% of the population) and reflectors (1% of the population). Look up your human design HERE!

Episode #54: Billy Bosch // Founder of Iconic Protein // The Importance of Protein & How He Raised $8 Million in Capital

Hi beautiful friends and welcome back to the podcast this week!

This week we have an amazing founder and brand back on the podcast - Billy Bosch of Iconic Protein.

Billy learned first hand that food can be both the problem and solution to better health and vitality. He has a great story as he created Iconic Protein when discovering that all the protein brands on the market were filled with sugar and preservatives, which were harming him and impacting his performance and daily functions. He was determined to lean into health and create a better beverage in a category that was filled with unhealthy options. Billy is highly proficient in discussing how protein impacts our health, particularly dairy vs. plant protein and how protein deficiency should not be taken lightly.

Episode #51: SOLO Episode // Taking Credit For and Owning Your Successes + Learning How to Say No

This week we’re back with a SOLO episode about a topic that’s been on our minds a lot lately -- taking credit for, and owning successes. We cannot believe we’ve released 50 EPISODES, and we’ll be honest…it was a little bit uncomfortable to shout it from the rooftops and give ourselves a pat on the back. That’s what inspired this episode!

For anyone out there who’s side-hustling, working and pursuing their passions, or just making it through their day, here’s your permission to celebrate it and share your successes with others. We don’t do this nearly enough (especially as women!) and it’s SO important.

Episode #50: Jamie & Michael // Founders of Busy Beauty // Struggles and Successes as Entrepreneurs

OMG, it’s EPISODE #50!!!! How crazy is that?? Today we have the founders of BusyBeauty on the pod — Jamie Steenbakkers & Michael Leahy. Alison (their marketing manager) also tagged along which made this recording a record for how many people participated!

BusyBeauty is a wonderful brand for women on the go (which makes so much sense for our listeners!).

They created a waterless shave gel first and have since expanded their line to include wipes and showerless shampoo. Jamie is a beauty protege — the next generation inventor, the eye for design, the creator and the visionary. While Michael is a hustler — an expert at supply chain optimization, growth hacker, people, and cash flow manager.

Episode #43: Alfred & Cam // Founders of VitalFit Nutrition // Fighting Inflammation with Tart Cherry & The Grind of Entrepreneurship

This week, we have an amazing powerhouse duo on the pod - Cameron and Alfred of VitalFit.

Cameron and Alfred started VitalFit as a part of their grad school thesis project at Babson. What was a gripe with commissioned sales clerks, flashy marketing, and lack of industry accountability turned into their full-time venture. It was ultimately a back injury from playing basketball that actually led us to their first product. Sick of taking ibuprofen and having no luck finding a natural alternative they felt like something was missing. Eventually, they came across tart cherry juice, which was surprisingly effective and began working on the way to best deliver its effects and apply it to the health and wellness space.
