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 #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 #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.

This week’s episode is an important one — and it’s a topic near and dear to both of our hearts. Mental health is something that affects so many of us in our lives, and yet, we don’t talk about it nearly enough.

In today’s episode, we dive in with the Founder and CEO of Zencare, Yuri Tomikawa. While living in New York, Yuri started her own search for a therapist when she was going through a tough time. She was shocked with how long and challenging the process was — from insurance, to appointments being booked out for months.
