Bridgette Rooks is the CEO of Cre8tive Vibes and host of The Entrepreneur Lifestyle podcast.

Her mission with the podcast is to help aspiring entrepreneurs turn their dream of entrepreneurship into a lifestyle.

It’s about creating a lifestyle that will guarantee the growth and development of a business that makes money doing what you love.

Entrepreneurship is portrayed as an amazing and beautiful lifestyle and anyone can do it. Over half of the best business ideas fail before they begin from this one simple mistake. So many see the glamorous lifestyle and make the mistake of jumping head first into design instead of spending time building a foundation first.

Sarah Hunt | Messy Luminous Being

Sarah Hunt is the creator and host of the Messy Luminous Being podcast. She teaches meditation and yoga, however with two wonderfully wild boys at home to mother-- her life looks nothing like a yoga retreat center, so all her work is about how we can weave spiritual wisdom and practices into a beautiful messy real life.

The Messy Luminous Being podcast seeks to understand how we can think of spiritual practice as something that happens within life, rather than in a retreat. In the show, Sarah talks to other female yoga teachers, meditation practitioners, and spiritual seekers about how they find ways to adapt their practice to busy real life. Her main goal is to peel back the curtain on what women’s spiritual practice really looks like, whether practicing with young kids in the house or in other challenging life situations.

For many years, Sarah experienced a divided feeling between her spiritual practice and her everyday life. The tradition of buddhist meditation and yoga gives us practices that require quiet time for stillness, relaxation and reflection. However, her life with two little boys and all the busy stuff of modern life made being alone and quiet for any length of time nearly impossible. Over the last decade of her own practice, she muddled through and adapted her mindset as well as when and how she practiced in what she called “messy real life.” It is her continuing journey of incorporating meditation and spiritual wisdom into the messy realities of our lives.

Taryn Raine | Embracing Human

“Connection means vulnerability. It’s a willingness to be open to showing the parts of yourself that normally you’d want to hide. Noone is perfect. It’s our imperfections that bring us all closer together. When we admit our flaws, we can be our authentic selves.”

Taryn Raine is an Anxiety Coach and a traveling yoga teacher of The Remote Yogi. Her podcast, Embracing Human, was created to remind you that you are NOT broken, nor in need of fixing. You are beautifully human. There is a power to self acceptance while on the journey to feel better physically, mentally, emotionally, and spiritually.

In the show, she discusses topics on mental wellness, building confidence, breaking free from taboos, and chipping away at the limiting beliefs that just make us feel crappy about ourselves. Having delved deeper into the world of yoga, neuroscience, and personal growth-- Taryn saw a common theme with everyone she spoke with-- they felt ashamed of their humanness, of the messy, vulnerable, and not-so-perfect parts of themselves. It’s been her mission to change that way of thinking.

Taryn started Embracing Human as a way to change the conversation in how we see personal development. There’s a common sales method used that tries to convince people that something is wrong with them and that there’s a magical solution to their problems. She heard a lot of this type of language throughout her life, primarily based on a false belief that she was broken because of her mental illness-- depression and anxiety.

Taylor Lorenz | Happy Tracks

“One of the most important aspects of being human is connection. A connection to oneself, a connection to others and a connection to some kind of higher power, whatever it is that you believe in, are all essential for us to feel whole. Without connection our lives often lack meaning, happiness, joy, bliss and love. Simply put, connection means a feeling of wholeness.”

Taylor Lorenz is the travel blogger of Taylor's Tracks, who was living the dream life-- traveling around the world, and making a full-time income doing it-- but was far from happy. She turned to personal development and spirituality which helped her find her true purpose, passion, and voice.

Her podcast, Happy Tracks takes a deep dive into finding happiness and connection. Taylor loves teaching women how to reconnect with their mind, body, and soul to regain their self-trust, love, and power.

She’s passionate about using sensuality and movement to connect with oneself more as they both make you feel more alive and in touch with your body and senses. By connecting to your mind, body, and soul you become more self aware, you learn what you need in order to feel whole, happy, loved, and fulfilled. She believes the more you start radiating that energy, the more people and opportunities will start falling in your lap.

Taylor Nick | Pretty Please
