Harnessing Your Power Through Mental Wellbeing w/ STUNN Collective
Welcome back! This week on The Manuka Sunday Podcast I had the pleasure to sit down with Co-Founder of STUNN Collective, Ash Depass. Growing up, Ash had the dream of becoming an actress. She soon found that there was a bitter and toxic trait that came along with the beauty standards within the industry. After speaking to other women and knowing that she wasn't alone in holding unrealistic standards for herself. This triggered a dark space in her life that eventually hit showed up as depression, anxiety and serious self doubt.
Ash wanted a change and new she needed something different that a "bandaid" fix. So she teamed up with her husband to create STUNN supplements. A brand that focuses on holistic health and mental wellbeing to showcase true beauty. With the healing properties of extracts, adaptogens, antioxidants, and polyphenols STUNN creates the shift from depending on medication to adding in nutrients that nourish the gut to mind connection. And in turn, elevating other aspects of our lives such as skin, sleep, energy, hair, and more.
In this episode we talk about how it all started, wins and loses while creating a product, the benefits of specific ingredients, the vicious cycle of social media, business inspiration, and more.
Ash leaves us with her mission for STUNN - To empower women and make then believe in their own beauty, and believe in their own potential. Because when you find your own path, you can do anything. Harnessing that inner potential is the first step to finding your inner glow.

Entrepreneurship, Building a Viral Brand, Nutrition, Hormones, & Cultivating a Just Do It Attitude w/ Kayla Pomponio
On this week of the Manuka Sunday Podcast we take a look behind the curtain of social media and see what it takes to make Holistic Health a career. This week's guest, Kayla Pomponio, the Founder of @bewellwithkayla, was diagnosed with leaky gut when she was younger. Some could look at this as a destiny of upset stomaches, medication, and no end in sights. Kayla did the exact opposite. She took her health into her own hands, found the help she needed to dive deeper into the issues she was facing. She was then faced with a decision. To either go through with a law degree that was applauded by her friends and family; OR make a career path shift into the world of Holistic Health.
She found herself enrolling into INN and the rest was history. Now Kayla is a successful Holistic Health Coach that believes each human has a healing path that is unique to them. With a strong brand and team behind her, we jumped into entrepreneurial topics such as cultivating an abundance mindset, acting on your intuition, and how to surround yourself with passionate people. Kayla's 'just do it' attitude has lead her to create merch, open her own practice, developed a viral smoothie blend that will actually get you excited about drinking greens, and has even launched a grocery box to make sure your fresh ingredients come straight to your door each week.
Later in the episode we get to chatting about mindless snacking, lifestyle changes, and why it seems as though everyone and their sisters hormones are off. No ready to take your health into your own hands? This just might be that push you need. Kayla is a wealth of knowledge and her tips and tricks to help get on the right track was exactly what I needed to hear.
