56. Conscious Living & Continuous Learning

Conscious living and continuous learning… the process never really ends! Today I welcome Dr. Lindsey Elmore to T&T and we touch on just about everything as Lindsey has a plethora of knowledge and a deeply diverse set of life experiences. Business, nutrition, marketing, injury, yoga, personal growth, and of course breakdowns and breakthroughs! Lindsey shares her journey with equal parts vulnerability and confidence, knowing that one doesn’t grow without the other. She shares that an early life eating disorder fed the need for attention and a later in life knee injury (torn ACL, just like me… and my pup Kleo:) fostered clarity in that need for attention and what it really meant to me sick/injured. The ACL injury also opened her up to a whole new world natural remedies, treatments, essential oils- all while being a pharmacist. Lindsey was feeling the juxtaposition of the Turmeric & Tequila life early on… I identified strongly (excerpt for the “being a doctor” part, ha). Lindsey is a published author and fellow podcaster, speaking in over 30 countries and leading her marketing business as strong and continuously learning entrepreneur. This is a great cast for anyone learning to embrace their imperfections, “failures”, and for all of us that are still learning on so many levels. Learn from Lindsey’s journey and please be inspired to share yours as you never know who it could help!
