    Season 4 Episode 4 Cielo Solis: Blend The World

    In this episode of the SISU Journey podcast, Cielo Solis talks about her constant journey of building resilience. Finding her success as an entrepreneur wasn’t without struggle. Despite the bumps in the road she has been through, what has helped her enjoy the struggle as much as the success? Stay tuned!

    Launching an initiative that could uplift and bring people together. Being a lone entrepreneur can sometimes be a lonely thing.

The value of surrounding yourself with people that constantly challenge you. And much more! About Cielo Solis:
    Cielo Solis is a former TV journalist turned entrepreneur. She is the founder & CEO of BLENDtw, a media company focused on producing content that fosters human connection.
    Disappointed by the lack of diversity in news coverage, Cielo decided to quit her job in television and make a change in the media industry by launching a website focused on grassroots journalism. That is how Blend (blend the world) was born.
    BLENDtw has grown to become one of the most popular sites among Gen Z in America. The publication reaches over 1 million readers per month. Cielo has been featured on Medium, Thrive Global, NBC News, and many other outlets.
    Apart from her role at BLENDtw, Cielo is an SEO coach and brand strategist that has worked with multiple Fortune 500 companies. She is also a speaker who has given a multitude of talks at various prominent conferences pertaining to media & tech. No matter what venture she undertakes, Cielo’s number one vision is to empower people to step into their best selves.

    Season 4 Episode 2 Ellie Crowe: Thursday's Child Has Far To Go

    In this episode of the SISU Journey podcast, Ellie Crowe shares how freeing herself from alcohol gave her the opportunity to find herself again.

    Here are the things to expect in this episode:
    How did cognitive behavioral therapy help with her lifelong anxiety? Everyone has their own ways of self-care. Learning what alcohol does for the brain and body. Alcohol doesn't relax you, but it actually causes stress! It’s possible to find freedom away from the substance. And more! -

    Ellie lives with her husband, three young kids, and three hounds in a very old pub in Cambridge, England. She’s a passionate yogi, Wim Hof-fer, and gymnast (back in training!).

Hearing people’s stories is so powerful!

It is so helpful to hear these stories, which I would not ever hear otherwise. There is a lot of healing power and insight in hearing what other people have experienced and what they have learned. Thank you!
