It can be scary to step outside of your comfort zone and try something new, but many times this is exactly what we need to do in order to grow and create the life we see for ourselves. Our guest did just that.

Today we speak with Veronica Menin, owner of Peace-A-Cake and founder of Conscious Bite Out.  Although Veronica had a cush and well-paying corporate job, it left her unfulfilled and empty.  Long days behind a desk didn't agree with her physically or emotionally so she made a change.

After quitting her day job, she began pursuing her interests in health and through persistence, hard work and a few angels along the way, she created the life she wanted to live. Veronica now sells her line of vegan muffins in Whole Foods all across the state of Florida (with nationwide expansion soon), hosts events inspiring others to live a more conscious life and keeps active outdoors as much as her schedule allows (she regularly bikes near 100 miles at a time.)

If you're looking to make a change in your life, let Veronica inspire you.

Some of you may have heard of GMO's or Genetically Modified Organisms, but we wouldn't be too surprised if many of you haven't, even though you're probably eating them everyday. GMO's are made by forcing genes from one species into the DNA of an unrelated food crop or animal in order to introduce a new trait. If you eat processed foods and don't buy organic, chances are you're consuming GMO's.

And it's no wonder that many big BioTech companies like Monsanto would rather keep us in the dark although they claim it's perfectly safe. Why else would they spend millions to defeat GMO labeling in California and Oregon? And did you know that GMO's are banned in Europe? Kind of makes you wonder, right? Don't you think you should have the right to know what's in your food or if it's food at all?

On today's podcast we sit down with Trish Sheldon, a passionate activist, musician, mother, founder of GMO Free Florida and co-founder of Millions Against Monsanto-Florida Chapter. She's fighting hard everyday to get our food supply labeled so we know what we're feeding ourselves and our families.

Fear. It can paralyze us, hold us back, keep us from growing and stop us from reaching our full potential. But by facing those fears and letting our love shine, we open the door to a world ready and willing to reward us for having the courage to be vulnerable.

In our debut podcast, we sit down with the inspirational and beautiful, Terri Cooper. Before Terri was a yoga instructor, activist, writer and entrepreneur she struggled with drug addiction, was physically abused and was a lost soul. After hitting rock bottom she found yoga and thus began her path to recovery, enlightenment and helping those who need her most – at risk youth.

She owns and operates three yoga studios (305 Yoga) and is the founder of Yoga Gangsters, a non-profit organization that teaches yoga to at-risk youth across the country. She has presented at Yoga Journal Conferences and has traveled the world doing what she loves most – teaching yoga and sharing her beautiful spirit and big heart with the world.
