035: Alexander Black - Fresh, Slick & Mick // Nothing Changes If Nothing Changes
Sitting down with Alex AKA "Fresh" of the Fresh, Slick, & Mick podcast was truly eye opening. As I began to learn more about Alex's story I started to see my own life in a new way, privileges I never gave much attention to. Growing up in an abusive home is not something everyone experiences, and I feel extremely honoured that Alex was willing to share his story here on the Lemon Soul podcast. As he mentions during our conversation, without diving deep and walking through these heavy topics, nothing changes. I am so grateful to share this story and remind all the men listening, perhaps struggling with their own mental health, that you aren't alone and there IS help out there. A huge thank you to Alex for teaching us today that maintaining good mental health is an ongoing practice and one worth working for.
034: Ola Ahmed - Kindness Cafe // If I Can Do it, Anyone Can
Sitting down with Ola was a dream come true. As we discussed food waste across the world, Ola explains the importance of why places like Kindness Cafe must exist. A brilliant and boundless idea from a powerful Egyptian woman making a difference right here in our community in Canada. Not only was I amazed by her business ideas, but held captive by her immense love for the human experience. Ola is one of a kind, an absolute sweetheart with so many resonating and inspirational messages during this episode - don't miss out!
033: Tia Nicoletti - Windsor Circus School // Let Go, Lean In & Learn
Stoked to sit down with Tia on this episode as we discuss the incredible heart, mind, and body dedication that she has given to the Windsor Circus School. Not only do we talk about the physicality of it all, but the mental barrier that many people are confronted with when they first begin! Tia unravels what it is like to not only be an athlete in this world, but how to be a coach .. and an incredible one at that. PLUS we get to talk all things travel as we dive deeper into Tia's personal life where she lived in Malaysia, stood in the smoke during the burning of the palms, and how talking to people across the world has given her such a gracious amount of knowledge and respect for the human experience. LEGGO!

Alysse is the human embodiment of badass, not only because she goes after what she wants, but because she does it with a heart full of gold. Get ready for some realness on this episode as we discuss the array of business challenges Alysse has face in her life and how she approaches everything with a fierce, no b******t attitude. From baby bows, to cotton candy, t-shirts, to fierce-as-f**k nails .. she has done it ALL. I promise after you're done listening, you are going to want her as your new best friend.
031: Nicholas James Eichenberger - Actually So Ugly // To Bully & Be Bullied
On this episode with Nick from @actuallysougly & @theuglyaesthetics we cover so much! Nick opens up about his unique perspective as having been a bully and having been bullied.
