Coffee Chat - LIVE FROM THE CLOSET: Getting Real about Goals

This week we come to you literally live from the closet! We wanted to chat in depth about the goal setting workshop we are hosting on Monday April 29th at Saje Wellness in San Francisco. So we turned the microphone AND the camera on ourselves this week (check out the @shesthriving Instagram for the full video and a look into the infamous closet) to get real about our own personal relationships with goal setting and the experience we are looking to create through our Living with Intention workshop. Be sure to grab your tickets to the event ASAP. We are so excited for an evening of intention to check in with ourselves and feel aligned and excited about the life we are creating.

Relentlessly Building Your Vision with Your BFF By Your Side - Tal Winter and Kate Cutler Discuss How They are Changing the Hydration Game with bkr

Molli and MK are pretty sure they have found a pair of entrepreneurial fairy godmothers in Tal Winter and Kate Cutler, founders of bkr, the water bottle phenoms that are becoming your one-stop-shop for all things hydration. Close friends since law school, Tal and Kate found themselves feeling disenchanted by their successful law careers and decided to boldly embark on building a product they believed in for a customer they cared deeply about. Listen as they give us an invaluable crash course in what it's like to start a company, the challenges that come from doing so as a woman, the value of finding a cofounder who compliments your skills, and the perseverance it required to stay in alignment with your vision.

Coffee Chat - Surprise Guest and Surprise Confessions

We are in for a treat for this week’s coffee chat. We had a very special visitor to the closet - MK’s mom Moey! In addition to being a number one fan of the podcast, Moey is a constant source of love and support and hilarity in our lives and we loved having her brief but wonderful commentary. Molli also makes some literary confessions as we break down the stories we are told and taught; and our responsibility in noticing the missing voices.

Molly Bellar, Creative Director of her Life

We recently sat down with Molly Bellar, Creative Director of Stella & Dot, to hear how she has consistently carved out a career that utilizes her talents and passions in a fulfilling way. The role of Creative Director isn’t necessarily one you can study for with an undergraduate degree, but Molly has been able to leverage her gifts to work cross-functionally with teams throughout her career and build her dream roles in a variety of companies. She also made the bold decision, in the middle of her professional success, to take a dream trip with her husband and two children, pausing the hustle and bustle of their lives to travel all over the world for 6 months. I repeat, she traveled to multiple foreign countries with 2 children under the age of 6, for 6 months. And still calls it one of the best decisions she’s ever made. We hope Molly's story helps remind you of your power to design the life that helps you THRIVE!
