I feel like gratitude is trending these days. And not just because of the season.
It’s probably because the older I get the more I love to read self-help books over fiction and because the deeper I get into yoga the more I become aware of a world I didn’t know existed (i.e when I joined Kappa Kappa Gamma in college, I started to notice owls, one of our symbols, EVERYWHERE).
All of that said, during our interview with Garret of Garrett’s Granola I was reminded again this season of how important gratitude for the things and the people in our lives is.
Having a bad day? Feeling grumpy? Take a few minutes and think of the things you are grateful for. It’s a well proven way of instantly uplifting your spirits.
These are the things we talked about with Garrett, who was a life coach before he started his own granola company in San Francisco, California, the mecca for both life coaches and granola.
In the podcast we discuss:
The importance of erasing the word “should” from your vocabulary
The different ways you can define success
Managing your time as a self-employed entrepreneur (the good and the bad)
The importance of being persistent and having grit when it comes to getting your company off the ground or your granola into stores
The idea that business is all about relationships
The importance of work/life balance: do what you can each day and then let it go
We also mention some great companies that Garrett is associated with including:
Baycat – the nonprofit his fiancé works with, that exists to end inequality and racism through powerful storytelling
Soujorn Box – a gift box company that gives you a taste of a location that may be 2000 miles away (Garrett’s Granola is featured in the San Francisco box)
Indiegogo – The crowd fund website that Garrett used to get his company off the ground
That Donut Girl – an artisan donut company that puts Garrett’s Granola on some of their donuts. You can book That Donut Girl for special events
Coaches Training Institute – Where Garrett did his life coach training
Also worth noting:
Garrett has an AMAZING roof top view. I tried to reference a Reese Witherspoon movie during our conversation and couldn’t remember the name. The movie is “Just Like Heaven.”
