Sign up for free at https://www.getostrich.com/download About Antonia Gavrihel: Born to an entertainment family — her father a comedian and actor, her mother a big band singer — Antonia was placed in front of a camera at an early age. She loved acting yet dreamed of being a writer. Words, along with the visuals and stories they form, became her passion. Back to One was created when she was raising a young son, building a career, and managing the everyday hurdles of life. After settling her son to sleep after work, she would write into the late hours of the night--- for an entire year. Then began the twenty-five-year search for a publishing house to bring the novel to readers everywhere. The first summer of Covid-19 provided that serendipitous event. Away from writing and occasionally acting, she is a law professor and an enrolled agent/master tax advisor. Her second novel in the Back to One series continuing Cate and Kyle’s adventures will be released next October 2022.

He built four start-ups over the last 23 years, including successful 3 exits. Jon has raised ~$100M in venture capital and hired hundreds of employees. That entrepreneurial lifestyle eventually took its toll and he started having challenges with low energy, brain fog, and trouble sleeping. These problems prevented Jon from consistently showing up as his best self. After talking to friends, he realized that these issues were actually pretty common. Jon learned that through lab work he could identify the root cause of some of the problems and improve them, but that wasn’t going to happen with his conventional doctor. After a lot of searching he eventually found a functional medicine doctor, who was able to identify, through expensive blood work, that Jon had nutrient deficiencies and high toxin levels. So, Jon adjusted his supplements, nutrition and lifestyle accordingly. And, within a month, he was feeling the best he had felt in years. This inspired Jon to start Vessel and use new technology to empower people to track and improve their wellness from home. www.vesselhealth.com Silicon Alley is a Financial Glass Production --- Send in a voice message: https://podcasters.spotify.com/pod/show/silicon-alley/message

A few years ago, Payitoff's founder, Bobby, and his wife were weighed down by crushing six-figure student debt, unsure if they’d ever be able to start a family or own a home. Bobby spent nights and weekends codifying student loan regulations and building an algorithm to help his family navigate their personal student debt crisis. This technology, which in time became the core to Payitoff’s algorithm, helped him gain what every borrower seeks: a course of action for his student loan management that without a doubt would get the the best possible financial outcome for his family. Amidst the confusion and complexity of the student loan system, Bobby was able to turn chaos into certainty thanks to this algorithm. With that freedom, Bobby and his wife were empowered to start a family and move forward with their lives. (They currently have an adorable 3-year-old daughter!) Of course, Bobby quickly realized his struggle wasn’t unique. 43 million other borrowers could benefit from the technology he developed in order to overcome the overwhelming complexity of student loan debt. He founded Payitoff in 2018, and we’ve since built a suite of innovative tools to revolutionize student loan management, from the unique perspective of having experienced the struggle firsthand. https://www.linkedin.com/in/bobbymatson/ Silicon Alley is a Financial Glass Production --- Send in a voice message: https://podcasters.spotify.com/pod/show/silicon-alley/message
