  • Today's episode was a special one. I got the chance to interview one of my best friends since grade school. Carol Perez is a jack of many trades but she identifies herself as a storyteller and women empowerment advocate. Carol has done it all, from working from some of the most iconic companies in the world including Twitter, Lyft and WeWork but also realizing that fulfillment didn't come from those experiences but rather through a journey of self-discovery that started with a Shaman outside of Mexico City

    The Cliff Notes:

    Carol's Story and her experience working in tech giants The Shaman Experience that changed her life The practice of mindfulness and meditation Society expectation and embracing the ups and downs Body image >> How she grew up and where she is now How Carol eats according to her menstrual cycle What are vibrations and what does it mean when you are vibrating high or low Quantum Physics and the basics! Movement and Dancing - The connection between mind and spirit and more…
