LAUREN GRIEWSKI: Being A Leader From A Young Age, Enjoying An Abundant Life Even Through Loss, And Seeing Orange As The Color Of Joy

Lauren Griewski’s story is an inspiring one. Her career includes living in New York, working for MTV and Vivo, working for a startup, and then moving to LA because she got a job with Facebook working with leaders and executives. She is a four and a half time Iron Man athlete. And she understands the deep grief of losing someone close to you. This grief led her to her own soul searching mission where she got clear on what she wants her life to be about. And she is now the founder of Soul Expressed where she, in her words, helps people “find your you.” She longs to help people find their passion and then monetize that passion in every good way. In this episode, you will laugh, maybe cry, and certainly be inspired to live your truth and lean into what you’ve been placed on this earth to accomplish. We hope you enjoy this episode.

DEJA KNIGHT: Following Your Creative Path, Building A Career Of Telling Other People’s Stories, And Being Obsessed With Weather

If we had favorites, Deja Knight would most definitely be one of them. She is hilarious, determined, relational, dedicated, and really good at what she does. Growing up in the small town of Muscle Shoals, AL, Deja was an only child and only grandchild. All growing up, she was drawn to capturing other people’s stories and as a result, could always be found with a video camera in her hand interviewing people. This translated well into her adult life as she began her career as a news reporter for well-known news stations in both Charleston and Nashville, transitioned into PR, and ultimately started her own PR firm, called Pearl Public Relations. This episode is full of laughter, lots of good stories, and insight into how important good PR is to the growth of your business. We hope you enjoy this episode!

SEAN FLOOD: Having An Accurate Definition Of Success And Failure, Believing Strongly In Your Idea, And Being Well-Positioned In Your Industry

SEAN FLOOD: Having An Accurate Definition Of Success And Failure, Believing Strongly In Your Idea, And Being Well-Positioned In Your Industry

As CEO of Gotcha, Sean Flood is on a mission to disrupt the car industry. Gotcha is an e-mobility company that offers three sustainable micro-transit products: customized dockless bike share, electric scooters and e-trikes. Not only has Gotcha built the bikes, they also built the app to go with it. Under Sean’s leadership, Gotcha is now all over the US in cities and universities, and was ranked #277 on Inc. magazine’s 2019 list of the 5000 fastest growing companies. But Sean is also not a stranger to hardships and challenges. Before founding Gotcha in 2009 with his now wife, Jacklyn, he was buying real estate and flipping homes. Like many, the recession hit him hard. Necessity, they say, is the mother of all invention, and needing a new career and source of income, Gotcha was born. Sean is one of those guys who immediately disarms you with his confident humility, intelligence, graciousness, and deep care for his team. We walked away from this interview wishing more business owners were like him. We hope you enjoy this episode.
