    Ashley Mielke | Registered Psychologist and Founder and CEO, The Grief and Trauma Healing Centre | Finding Purpose Through Healing

    Ashley Mielke | Registered Psychologist and Founder and CEO, The Grief and Trauma Healing Centre | Finding Purpose Through Healing

    This week, on the podcast, host Eva Hartling speaks with Ashley Mielke, Registered Psychologist and Founder and CEO of The Grief and Trauma Healing Centre in Alberta. Ashley founded her company at the age of 26, after the tragic death of her father by suicide. It was the purpose she found through her healing that inspired the ‘WHY’ behind The Grief and Trauma Healing Centre, which is on a mission to steward grieving people on the pathway to healing. Ashley and the Centre’s hope for the world is that every single human being will have the tools to deal with loss and no one will ever grieve alone again. Ashley was named one of Edify’s Top 40 Under 40 in 2021 for her contributions to the field of psychology. Today, Ashley is also a business consultant, philanthropist, second-year Doctor of Psychology student at California Southern University, a wife, mother, and a passionate hockey player and coach. I hope you will enjoy this conversation about letting purpose lead business.

    Catherine Choi | Founder, SoYoung | Overcoming Self-Limiting Beliefs

    This week on the podcast, we are re-airing a recent favourite episode featuring Catherine Choi, Founder of SoYoung. Stay tuned for a new episode next Tuesday!
    In this episode, we talk about how lessons from our own personal growth journey can transpire into business, and the importance of believing in our own worth despite challenges.
    Over 20 years ago, Catherine Choi overcame a drug addiction. This experience is what propelled her to launch SoYoung, a thoughtfully-made lifestyle goods company with the mission to make personal wellness sustainable. After living many years believing she was not capable, with an overwhelming feeling of unworthiness, Catherine set out to prove to herself she could tap into her own potential and pursue a greater vision.

I love how Eve embraces feminism in business

As a feminist business strategist, I love how this podcast celebrates women. I also love how she promotes the definition of She Rules. Coincidentally, I authored a book with this title!

Great host and series!

Eva asks her guests questions that show both genuine interest, in them, their work and their journey and is always sensitive to where the world should be going.
