How do you create, or run, a business while also caring for humans, helping the Earth, and at the same time have it be really successful? 

Today’s guest is an expert in that arena and her insights are amazing. She’s started and mentored multiple businesses and is passionate about this planet and all the people on board, so her start-up have featured sustainability in the forefront.

She’s also explored SO many cool things that we couldn’t help but pick her brain… we covered everything from her story of burn-out, to the pillars of life, to the benefits of unschooling her kids, to cacao rituals! This conversation is rich with tons of great tidbits.
