S1E9: "Dear Mom, I get it now" w/ Lynn Thornton

*Women's History Month Special* This week, I'm bringing my own mother to the show to talk about her journey balancing motherhood with entrepreneurship. 

Lynn Thornton (who we will now refer to as "Mom") is a seamstress and former owner of a small beachside bookstore, where she built a successful business, adapting her brick-and-mortar business to the increasingly digital world as e-commerce platforms such as Amazon shifted our buying habits from storefront to website. 

In this episode, we talk about the challenges of running a business AND mothering, the lessons and impact her example made on how I run my business, and how to navigate running a business with your spouse.

This week, stress and anxiety coach Shannon South shares why our brains are so darn good at keeping us safe... and how we can use this evolutionary gift to our advantage in the most stressful of situations.

As an Amazon Best Seller known for her book The Young and Beautiful Woman, Shannon combines her no-fluff scientific background with the compassion and creative genius of a woman wise beyond her years.

S1E5: "Salt Water to Soil" w/ USCG veteran Quincey Adams

S1E5: "Salt Water to Soil" w/ USCG veteran Quincey Adams

This week, former Coast Guard officer turned gardener and vlogger Quincey Adams shares why she left her job to pursue something radically different than anything she'd been tasked with before: focusing on her health by gardening.

Quincey's first role was as a shipboard engineer and was stationed, much like myself, in California and Hawaii, protecting and managing waterways and inspecting freight vessels before departing the Coast Guard for the civilian world. After bouncing around a few jobs, most notably helping over 100 veterans file disability claims and get their service-earned benefits, she started to notice health problems that ultimately had her leaving the work force.

Using the power of homegrown food to manage her own health, Quincey has expanded her love of gardening into a full-blown lifestyle and teaches live gardening classes on Facebook. You can find Quincey on her website at or her Facebook and Instagram using the handle @liliesandtomatoes.
