I was incredibly excited to speak with Kristin because she embodies the intersection of yoga and entrepreneurship that is currently captivating me.

So, if you’re currently leaning in to entrepreneurship, have always wanted to start a products based business or are looking to hear an inspiring story of grit & perseverance, then this week's show is for you!
