    57: Andy Moran on pivoting careers, breath work & meditation and living in the moment

    57: Andy Moran on pivoting careers, breath work & meditation and living in the moment

    We are very excited to start off Season 6 with a special guest that we loved talking with, Andy Moran! I first met Andy in class when we attended FIT and were both studying Fashion Business Management. Now, she is living in LA and is in the wellness space! We feel like this episode will be relatable to anyone who is maybe questioning their existing career path, whatever that may be, and are wondering if it is even possible to switch fields. We also talk about breath work, meditating, finding your passion and fueling your body with super foods! We hope you enjoy!

Refreshingly real!

The comfortable and authentic nature of the podcast results in a new take on the fashion industry, breaking down stereotypes and inspiring others to pave their own way in a historically materialistic and intimidating field. Keep up the amazing work!
