Episode #65: Darby Jackson // Co-Founder of Après & Protein Sommelier // Repairing Your Body Image with Food and Mindset

WE ARE SO PUMPED for this week’s episode!

If you’re like us (well, Meg specifically), you struggle to find a post-workout drink that provides some protein for recovery, but isn’t hard on your stomach. Enter: Après - a post-workout bev that we can truly get behind.

This week, we have the founder, Darby Jackson on the podcast. Well before Après was founded, Darby was diagnosed with celiac disease which inspired her to become an Integrative Nutrition Health Coach and personal trainer, combining her passion for nourishing food with her background in sports. Through her work with women in her coaching business, she began to notice that there wasn’t a post-workout drink that she would actually recommend to her clients.

Hi beautiful people! This week we have the amazing Candice Puthawala on the podcast and we are so excited to share her incredible story from fashion to owning her own wellness company.

She lived her life on fast forward and was always hustling to get it all done - from work to taking care of her daughter that she had at 19.

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 #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!). After meeting in college, Jamie and Michael set out to solve the problem of long and involved beauty routines (and also shaving your legs in a dorm room). 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 #34: Meg & Beck // SOLO Episode // Intentions vs. Resolutions for 2019

OH EM GEE YOU GUYS. It’s almost 2019. Can you believe it? It hasn’t been a full year for the podcast, but we can’t believe the opportunities that this year has brought us. If you’re here listening - we’re truly SHOOK, humbled, honored (all of the above) for your genuine love and support during this journey. Sometimes we’re going 10 million miles per hour and to take the time to slow down and take a lot of time for appreciation and gratitude feels really really good right now. Hopefully you feel the same!

We hope that whatever your plans are for New Year’s Eve that we can inspire you to set a couple of intentions for the New Year. We both prefer intentions to resolutions - we discuss in the episode, but resolutions feel like they don’t last long and are more focused on outward things (typically).
