    042: Shifting to a Growth Mindset with Carly Stein

    Mindset really is everything. With the right mindset, you can achieve all of your greatest hopes and dreams. Today on the show, I was joined by the founder of Beekeeper’s Naturals, Carly Stein. Carly is a former trader who discovered the healing power of bees when no other products in the medicine cabinet were doing the job for her. She shares how she overcame the fear of taking her hobby on as a career, why she practices positive self-talk and her experience of growing her company and team.

    About Carly:
    Founded by Carly Stein in 2016, Beekeeper's Naturals is an innovative company on a mission to reinvent the medicine cabinet. Using unique remedies from the beehive (like royal jelly and propolis), the beekeeper-led team is committed to providing the cleanest, most powerful solutions to modern health issues—like brain fog, poor sleep, and scratchy throats. Unlike competitors, they apply scientific rigor to their product development and commit to third-party pesticide testing to ensure they’re creating natural remedies that actually deliver.
    They’re also a brand on a mission. By working exclusively with sustainable small-scale apiaries, partnering with leading bee research institutions, and prioritizing pesticide-free hive health above all else, Beekeeper’s Naturals works tirelessly to raise awareness and create a better environment for our world’s most important pollinators—the bees.

Today I had the pleasure of talking with Lara Casey, author and creator of  PowerSheets® and the Write the Word® journals.

She shares the impact that she hopes to make through her products and why she’s so passionate about helping others look at the bigger picture in life.
