EP 43: Healthy Parenting With Claudia Morandi
Claudia Morandi is the mastermind behind Wholesome Mom a blog where she shares her experience, tips, and tricks for getting her children to eat healthy and stay active, while also helping parents who may need some extra support getting themselves back in shape. Originally from Venezuela, Claudia’s inspiration for Wholesome Mom came from watching her children adapt to the American lifestyle, which included more processed food options and less activity. But as her children started adopting some of the American culture and ways, Claudia started talking to them about how food can affect their health - both physically and emotionally - and realized that she was truly passionate about food and wellness. As Claudia noticed what worked with her children to get them to eat and behave better, and what didn’t -  she saw this as an opportunity to teach others how they can help their families live healthier lives. Claudia is now dedicated to helping others with children live healthier lives through her business Wholesome Mom. Prior to Wholesome Mom, Claudia lived in Venezuela with her husband and 2 daughters. She was the owner of Fibras Clothing, a fitness clothing line for women, which was widely successful. Her line was picked up by a retailer but sadly, Claudia’s political situation was not ideal, as she built her dream in the middle of a political crisis. She and her family sought asylum in the US in 2015, and has been here since.

EP 38: Adorable Cat Problems
This episode is a bit different from what we normally do! It’s a little lighter and more personal, just so you can get to know us better. One thing you may not know about us is that we both have pet cats that we adore. Here, we tell the stories of how we came to bring our rescue cats home. We also share our cat problems in the hopes that we can one day get the amazing Jackson Galaxy on the show. You will learn about: Bella, who has a “cocaine claw”, is possibly addicted to catnip and pets Cynthia’s hair in the middle of the night for unknown reasons Oliver, who is “big-boned” and throws things on the ground when he’s hungry (which is always) and Mini Me, who loves to take walks on a leash and whose favorite foods are pizza, fries and popcorn Just to make you laugh, here’s a bonus video of cats stealing pizza. We hope you enjoy this heartwarming special episode! Here’s to Getting Unstuck, Brennen & Cynthia P.S. In the show, we talked about a kitten shampoo that Brennen loves. It’s called Groomax Gentle Cat & Kitten Shampoo. Unfortunately, it looks like it may no longer be sold. Boo! Today’s episode is brought to you by Brennen's long-time friend Liberty Heise and her brand new soap company bee somebody.

EP 37: Sarah Zero on Becoming a Lady Boss, Part 2
Sarah Zero is the founder of Wellstruck, a branding studio that specializes in brand therapy, design, and websites for businesses owned by good people. She has a degree in Visual Communications and over 12 years experience in branding — including two years of teaching it at the college level. Sarah also created Wellstruck Lady Boss, a series of intimate roundtable events for entrepreneurs in Philadelphia. Each event has space for just 12 women, and over 500 women have attended since it began. As for life outside of work, Sarah lives in Delaware with her husband and pup. She does some pretty normal stuff like collecting plants, planning travel based on food, and watching movies with a strong female lead on Netflix. And sometimes she does some less normal stuff like foraging for mushrooms to make spore prints. Sarah’s clients say she’s “refreshingly unpretentious” and her husband says she “makes fun happen.” My favorite moments and insights from this interview: Nothing seems random - Sarah ended up in visual communications orientation at her college rather than the one she was supposed to be in - it forever changed her path forward! Sarah found the courage to leave corporate because of her experiences prior, where she was let go from her job and proceeded to get clients in order to pay her bills until she could find new work. She learned being an entrepreneur wasn’t that scary! Sarah’s bout with cancer most resonated with me - it slowed her down and she had to stop working for awhile, which was scary. But her resilience coming off that is what shines through for me. Sarah plans travel around food with her husband - how fun is that?? She makes spore prints from mushrooms, who knew? I loved seeing what spore prints were all about so she and I are now inst buddies.

EP: 35: Mary Alice Duff on Creating a Path that Fits Your Passions, Part 2
Here's the second part of a two-part interview with Mary Alice Duff! Mary Alice is the owner of Alice Alexander, a size-inclusive, ethically-made women’s apparel startup based in Philadelphia with both an online and brick and mortar presence. Started in September 2017, Alice Alexander offers bold, yet accessible pieces to the modern-day woman in sustainable fabrics and inclusive sizes, ranging from 0-28. Prior to launching her own business, Mary Alice was a nonprofit executive with dual degrees in social work and law and social policy. Frustrated with the lack of high quality clothing in her size and growing increasingly aware of the negative environmental and human impacts the fashion industry was creating, Mary Alice started sewing her own clothes, consciously building a self-made wardrobe piece by piece. Realizing there was a business in her new sewing hobby, Duff enrolled in fashion design school at Philadelphia’s MADE Institute, where she balanced taking classes and working full-time. In May of 2017, Duff left a successful career in the nonprofit sector to launch Alice Alexander. In June 2018, with the crowdfunded launch of their second collection, Alice Alexander opened a brick and mortar location and combined production studio in the East Falls neighborhood of Philadelphia. My favorite moments and takeaways from part 2 of my interview with Mary Alice were: There is tremendous exploitation in the clothing industry, including human trafficking and slave labor. Check out Fashion Revolution and Clean Clothes Campaign if you want to have a part in improving conditions in the global garment industry. All of the industry experts that Mary Alice spoke with told her that it was impossible to make a viable ethical clothing company in the U.S. “If we’re not buying crap, they’re not gonna make crap.” Some fashion companies are creating so many excess cheap clothes that they never sell that they have to literally burn the excess garments. Crowdfunding can be a great way to market a new business. It’s more than just raising money. Social media isn’t all about gaining followers… it’s about engaging with your customers.

In June 2018, with the crowdfunded launch of their second collection, Alice Alexander opened a brick and mortar location and combined production studio in the East Falls neighborhood of Philadelphia. My favorite moments from my interview with Mary Alice and my biggest takeaways were: Mary Alice was a wildly successful and educated professional with 2 master’s degrees but that didn’t stop her from pursuing what got her up every morning, even when “what got her up every AM” shifted Mary Alice’s transition from social work to fashion seemed like a huge leap but she carried through the core threads of what was important to her and what she was good at to make it happen If you’re paying for a shirt what you’re paying for a burrito, your clothes are probably unethically made Having a partner who whole-heartedly supports your dreams was a key component for Mary Alice to be able to make the leap she did Sometimes, having BIG CRAZY dreams that you aim to achieve, in the face of people questioning or laughing at them, is the biggest driver to achieving them (and showing everyone that they were wrong) Connect with Mary Alice Duff: Website: www.alicealexander.co Instagram: @alicealexanderco Facebook: www.facebook.com/alicealexanderco Email: hello@alicealexander.co https://www.fashionrevolution.org/ https://cleanclothes.org/ Here’s to Getting Unstuck, Cynthia This week our show is brought to you by Brie Valencia Designs.
