    Stasia Honnold ~ Human Powered Adventurer

    Stasia Honnold ~ Human Powered Adventurer

    Today’s guest is Stasia Honnold.
    Stasia is an adventurer. But not just any kind of adventurer – she’s a human-powered adventurer. So what does that mean? In short, she bikes, she hikes and she runs. And rarely does she use a car do to any of those.
    She’s a woman who makes up her own adventures and figures out how to execute on them with lots of planning and organizing.
    As Stasia says, she lives by a set of values and makes her life choices based on these values – doing no harm – and in doing so, she’s living simply as well as on her own terms.
    It was my intention to highlight Stasia for being Stasia. And not mentioning her family ties because she deserves recognition in her own right for what she does. But talk about her family came out naturally during our conversation. And what I’m talking about is the fact that her brother is Alex Honnold, who free solo’d up El Capitan and who you can learn all about the Academy Award winning movie, Free Solo.
    Her mom, by the way, is Dierdre Wolownick and I’ve had Dierdre on the podcast a couple of times. That was episodes number #127 and #83 so you can go back and listen to those to get a fuller picture of the family.
    Stasia writes about her adventures on her blog, carfreerambles.org and I encourage you to read her beautiful writing there.
    With that, please enjoy this conversation with Stasia Honnold.

    Liz Grantham ~ CEO, Entrepreneur and Founder of TheOptimal.Me

    Liz Grantham ~ CEO, Entrepreneur and Founder of TheOptimal.Me

    Today’s guest is Liz Grantham.
    Liz is the founder of The Optimal Me, a fitness app created specifically for those over 50 and it focuses on getting people functionally fit with exercises that take just 15 minutes a day.
    Liz and I dive deep into the importance of movement as we age. And not just moving (like me, with running) but by doing exercises that help with every day movement--like lifting your luggage into the overhead bin of a flight.
    As Liz points out, 2.8 million people die each year from obesity. 2.8 million! But no one is talking about that (likely because it’s not contagious). But it’s for this very reason that she’s motivated to help people keep their mobility and stay healthy well into late life.
    While it wasn’t her intention to create an app that would keep us in shape during a pandemic, the timing of this is quite good as we should all be staying active and functional and staying happy and fit so that when we get out of this, we’re in the same or better shape than when this whole thing started.
    I think you’ll really enjoy this conversation (not least of all because of her very charming South African accent).
    With that, please enjoy this conversation with Liz Grantham.

    Today’s guest is Tanji Johnson.
    Tanji is an 11 time Fitness Champion and she’s Fitness and Wellness Coach. She had a long career as a bodybuilder and now coaches others in this form of fitness and actually holds fitness competitions here in Washington State—that’s the Tanji Johnson Classic.
    Tanji has graced the covers of fitness magazines and one online search of her images and you can understand why.
    In this episode, we talk all about what led her to becoming a fitness professional, including her time in the military, where she thrived and worked as a military aircraft maintenance supervisor.
    We wrap up this conversation with her thoughts on Black Lives Matter including a really great lesson for me as she helped me better understand the movement.

    Today’s guest is Martina Kwan.
    Martina has a really interesting backstory. She’s Chinese/German, was born in Hong Kong and then moved with her family to Beirut when she was eight, and then on to Hamburg, Bahrain, Amsterdam and Switzerland for college before moving to the United States.
    She speaks English, German, French and is learning Mandarin.
    This global upbringing, particularly living in Beirut for two years at the start of their civil war, has given her a very unique perspective on the world and has helped her navigate very challenging situations.
    Martina is an award-winning business founder and entrepreneur, a speaker, a champion mindset coach and, what I found most interesting, a race car driver.
    Martina has found success throughout her life by being bold, asking for what she wants and not being daunted by or intimidated when working in environments that are male dominated.
    She’s a true inspiration.
    Please enjoy this conversation with Martina Kwan.

    Today I have a returning guest, Angela Shen. Angela has made lemonade out of lemons with regards to dealing with this pandemic.
    As you might recall from episode #45, Angela is the Founder and CEO of Savor Seattle Food Tours. When things started to shut down in Seattle at the beginning of the pandemic, I watched as Angela made really quick changes, pivots as everyone says these days. She created a new path for her company that fits right in with the company’s mission while also supporting local businesses, providing a service to locals and keeping her business alive.
    I’ve been keeping up with what she’s doing and have been so impressed with how she’s managed to go with the flow and I wanted to bring her back on the podcast to chat. I was most interested in how she knew so early that she needed to make changes and I wanted to find out how she went about making them.
    This is a shorter, check-in episode that I’m doing today. Lemme know if you like this format and if there’s any past guests that you’d like to hear from and I can reach out to them to bring them back! Just email me at beth@shesboldpodcast.com.
    OK – with that, please enjoy this conversation with the ever-inspiring, Angela Shen.

LOVE!

sallison1985 ,

Love this pod! So authentic and uplifting!

I’ve been receiving Beth’s email newsletter for awhile now and subscribed to the pod awhile ago but today was my first pod listen—-wow! I have been missing out! Beth is such a great interviewer—-she asked interesting questions and didn’t just agree with everything the guest said but not in a confrontational way. Will definitely keep listening. The pod I listened to did touch on travel but it was not just about that which was surprising to me in a good way .
