Ep. 203 - International Women’s Day Panel: Balance Is BS with Jane Wurwand, Danika Brysha, Sara Tan, Deepica Mutyala, Krista Williams, and Lindsey Simcik
We are often asked what balance looks like for us, and honestly, we don’t know!  There is an incredible plus balance looks different to every person. We were part of an event put on by us, Youtube, and Dermalogica on International Women’s Day, surrounding the topic that balance is BS. Achieving balance in life is such a trendy thing to talk about, and at this event, we sat alongside other amazing women to debunk the idea of balance. The panel featured Danika Brysha, Sara Tan, Deepica Mutyala, and Jane Wurwand. Each woman offered so much value and insight to business, entrepreneurism, and this idea that balance is BS. We are so excited for you to give this episode a listen.   We also talk about…   Defining milestones for Jane What led Danika to the creation of Model Meals Deepica + Sara on creating boundaries The unsexy side of entrepreneurism and business Different missteps and mistakes we look back on How everyone balances work and personal life Advice for female founder just starting out     Find more to love at almost30podcast.com!   Resources: Follow each panelist on Instagram: @danikabrysha ; @saratan ; @deepica ; @janewurwand Danika’s self-care checklist   Upcoming Events: March 26th: Rachel Rosen Event College Tour: Email events@almost30podcast.com    Hotline : 1 (424) 272-1853   Sponsors: Article | www.article.com/ALMOST30 for $50 off a purchase of $100 or more HUM Nutrition | Use code ALMOST30NATION for 15% off at humnutrition.com Silver Fern | Use code ALMOST30 for 20% off your first order at silverfernbrand.com Robinhood | Robinhood is giving listeners a FREE stock like Apple, Ford, or Sprint to help build your portfolio!

Our fans are always submitting new flavor ideas and lime has long been one of the most popular requests.” says Bill Creelman, founder and CEO of Spindrift, “Lime is actually the most popular flavor in the flavored sparkling water category, but Spindrift is the first brand with scale to make it with real squeezed lime juice.” In the excitement to tell the world about the new flavor release, the team noticed that there was a whole basket of fruit emojis – but no lime. Enlisting the help of their community, Spindrift looks to rally those on social media seeking to complete their citrus expression with the tiny lime emoji. To support Spindrift’s commitment to giving back, during the WHY #NOLIMEEMOJI? campaign, Spindrift will donate $1 for every Instagram or Twitter post using #NoLimeEmoji to Whole Kids Foundation (up to $50,000 dollars) through March 31, 2019.

I love these girls and their talk with their guests! My only qualm is that the interviews are much much much more about the guests and their careers than what the title claims the episode is going to be about... which is a major minus from me and something lots of podcasts seem to do, but this podcast is still worth listening to because they are hilarious!
