Episode 3: Why You Should Do A Yoga Teacher Training and My Rant About Higher Education (Random) Today I am talking about one of the greatest passions in my life: yoga and yoga teacher training. I wanted to address this topic (and shamelessly plug Yoga Travel Tree’s Mexico Teacher Training this May!) because I always get asked the question: why should I do this? How does it benefit me? So join me as I discuss how a crazy idea that started on a porch in Costa Rica has blossomed into a lucrative passion career, and what yoga (or any passion) could do...

Start Before You’re Ready

This weekend, I was sitting at a coffee shop with a friend who wants to start a wellness coaching business. She was telling me all about this big vision and idea of what she wants to achieve. I’ve known her for a long time and I know how smart and talented she is. I have no doubt that she could run a great business. The problem is…SHE doesn’t know how great she is and her confidence is wavering. I can completely relate. Even after running and growing a successful company and then launching my own, like so many of us,...
