I work in the Health and Wellness Industry. 

I help businesses within the Health and Wellness industry grow. 

This is why this conversation is one of the most important and impactful conversations that I have had thus far on The Business of Becoming. 

I have had amazing guests in the past touch on the biases and non-inclusive ways that the industry portrays and represents itself as. The conversation that I didn’t have was how we can work together to impact the growth of this industry. 

That’s why I reached out to thought leader Chrissy King to see if she would be interested in talking to us today about anti-racism diversity inclusion.

The Health and Wellness Industry should provide an inclusive space where all people are able to live well, whatever that means for them, and to be able to show up in the body that they have, and feel safe. 

And that’s not happening right now. 

Tune in. Get ready to listen with your guards down.

Let’s make the change that this industry is needing.
