    #38 - Building A Lab For Your Mind with Anne-Laure Le Cunff

    Mindful & Intentional is brought to you by Idenati. 


    Steve Jobs famously referred to a computer as a bicycle for the mind. I think my latest guest, Anne-Laure Le Cunff, would agree with that sentiment. Anne-Laure is a neuroscience student at King's College London and an entrepreneur. She describes her company, Ness Labs, as a school for mindful productivity. She creates content and courses, hosts events, and moderates a community, all centered around helping curious humans achieve more without sacrificing their mental health. This is one of those episodes that you'll want to devote your full attention to. Enjoy!

    #37 - A Tidy Revival with Carly Adams

    Mindful & Intentional is brought to you by Idenati.


    Carly Adams is a professional organizer based in Sacramento, California. A few years after college, she couldn't help the feeling that something was wrong. Her personal finances, her time management skills, her apartment; everything felt a bit out of wack. Today, by contrast, she's building a personal organizing business called Tidy Revival and loving every second of it. I find her story incredibly inspirational and I think you might as well.

    #36 - Building Your Ideal Life with Michelle Anderson

    Mindful & Intentional is brought to you by Idenati.


    Michelle Anderson started her career as an interior designer. Her days were spent helping people decide what to buy and how to fill their space. Today, she's a certified KonMari consultant, meaning she now helps people get rid of things that no longer serve them. It's quite a juxtaposition, but one that affords her a rather unique perspective. So without further adieu.

    (4:35) You attended a 2-year vocational design program as opposed to a traditional 4-year university. What was behind that decision?

    (23:20) You have a deep interest in sustainability. Is that somehow related to the Konmari method?

    Kara Ladd started her career in high fashion and media. That is, until a one-in-a-million cancer diagnosis changed everything. The first step was a personal journey of healing and self-discovery. But that has since evolved into Boundless, what Kara calls a conscious conglomerate. Boundless includes Boundless Creatives, a purpose-driven marketing consultancy, and Boundless by Kara, her personal brand centered around modern mindfulness. I'll leave it to her to tell you more about it...

    Patty Morrissey is the Founder and Head Coach at Clear & Cultivate. Her work centers around helping people clear the clutter from their lives, both physical and otherwise, and in parallel to that, helping them cultivate a better version of themselves. Said differently, Patty's not a huge fan of fine or just ok. She believes that everyone has a right to flourish, and thus, she's crafted a specific methodology for bringing that about. Her message resonated deeply with me and I have a feeling it will for you as well. Enjoy!

Mindful and intentional!

I love this podcast! Jeremy challenges your mind and spirit by presenting different concepts and exposes his audiences to new ideas as well as diverse topics.

This podcast has helped me to meditate, be more in touch with my body and have even started having conversation with others about their meditation routines.

After 2020, We Needed This

This podcast fits so well into what I’ve been focusing on this year, intention. The realness of what everyday people go through and how we can take a minute to allow presence in our lives. Give this podcast a listen if you’re looking for best practices to cultivate balance from real people doing real things.
