Over the past 15 years, I have had the honor of working with startups in roles spanning growth, product, marketing, operations, and strategy. I have partnered with many high-performing, CEOs, founders, and entrepreneurs on their journeys of becoming their whole selves and aligning with their passions, their purpose, and growing themselves into badass leaders.

It's been a captivating experience watching them become Conscious Leaders who are aware of  – and care about – the intentional and unintentional impact their businesses have on the world.

DAY 2 | Dec 2, 2021 | Parachute

Gift Giveaway: Cozy Booties

You have probably already heard of Parachute. They sell premium quality sheets, towels, robes, rugs, and all things soft and wonderful. Every single item they have is super high quality and so comfortable, there is not one person that wouldn't enjoy receiving something from Parachute as a gift. 

Their products are unique and beautiful - their Oeko-Tex certification means their products are safely made without any harmful chemicals or synthetics.

They also partner with the United Nation’s Nothing But Nets campaign to send life-saving malaria-prevention bed nets to those in need. 

I’ve coached and led offsites for several of Parachute’s c-suite leaders including Founder and CEO,  Ariel Kaye, COO ​​Mehdi Ait Oufkir, and Chief Creative Officer, Amy Hoban.

Ariel launched Parachute in 2014 as an online-only, direct-to-consumer brand focused on creating impeccable bedding. Before starting the company, she was a design enthusiast and a super consumer of home goods who couldn’t find a brand that was high quality, affordable, or easy to shop. 

As someone who spent a decade working in advertising and brand development, Ariel realized there was a hole in the market and saw a true business opportunity. Since then, she’s expanded into many areas of the home and opened several brick-and-mortar stores across the U.S.

Today we are giving away the coziest pair of slippers you could ever imagine. 

You can purchase these slippers and so much more at parachutehome.com. Get curious about how you can take care of your home, so it can take care of you.

Lococo is such a great gift idea for your friends, family, and co-workers. You can purchase as many jars as you want at lococomagic.com. It really is an easy way to show someone that you appreciate them and drinking it allows anyone to relax in a moment of presence.

DAY 9 | Dec 9, 2021 | Lettuce Grow

Gift Giveaway: Build Your Own Bundle 12-Plant Farmstand

I’m excited to talk about today’s gift because it is something that I own, something I use, something I love – This is a product that I believe in that supports a cause I believe in. 

Plus, the creators of this product are truly on a mission to support the planet by encouraging sustainable living and helping people claim radical responsibility for being aware of their intentional and unintentional impact on the world, on the human race, and on their own bodies. 

Founded by Zooey Deschanel and Jacob Pechenik, The Farm Project aims to reconnect people with food and expand access to sustainable living products while spreading awareness, reminding people to think about their food. This means being informed, and knowing what goes into it and how it's produced. 

The focus of all of their products and initiatives is on bridging the gap between knowing that our food system is not working for us or the earth and actually feeling empowered to do something about it. Zooey and Jacob created Lettuce Grow to provide consumers with a system that allows everyone to grow 20% of their own fresh food at home with no pesticides and 95% less water than traditional agriculture. 

Lettuce Grow supports a culture of sustainability, education and responsibility. Their Farmstands are beautiful and easy to use vertical gardens that work great for both indoors and outdoors and come in several different sizes; a 12 plant unit works great for hobbyists, or you could even get a Farmstand that holds up to 36 plants! Trust me, – you will want to go to their website and look around because you will find so many great gift ideas at lettucegrow.com.

Today, we are giving away a Build Your Own Bundle 12-Plant Farmstand. - With Farmstand there are a lot of personalization options. You can choose from a seasonal selection of non-GMO veggies, fruits, and herbs to create your own curated bundle of seedlings. 

I love this quote from their website, “When we ask the right questions, we can make informed choices and vote with our dollars for a better food system.” I truly believe in this statement. With every decision that we make we have the opportunity to be a Conscious Leader. If you believe this too, now is a great time to exaggerate our current attitudes and start to make conscious decisions that support and nourish our families and our bodies.

DAY 9 | Dec 9, 2021 | Lettuce Grow

Gift Giveaway: Build Your Own Bundle 12-Plant Farmstand

I’m excited to talk about today’s gift because it is something that I own, something I use, something I love – This is a product that I believe in that supports a cause I believe in. 

Plus, the creators of this product are truly on a mission to support the planet by encouraging sustainable living and helping people claim radical responsibility for being aware of their intentional and unintentional impact on the world, on the human race, and on their own bodies. 

Founded by Zooey Deschanel and Jacob Pechenik, The Farm Project aims to reconnect people with food and expand access to sustainable living products while spreading awareness, reminding people to think about their food. This means being informed, and knowing what goes into it and how it's produced. 

The focus of all of their products and initiatives is on bridging the gap between knowing that our food system is not working for us or the earth and actually feeling empowered to do something about it. Zooey and Jacob created Lettuce Grow to provide consumers with a system that allows everyone to grow 20% of their own fresh food at home with no pesticides and 95% less water than traditional agriculture.

DAY 10 | Dec 10, 2021 | August Uncommon Tea

Gift Giveaway: All the Teas Kit with Every August Tea

The founders of August Uncommon Tea – a husband and wife team who I love dearly – are actually former clients. Dr. Gina Zupsich and her husband Aaron Shinn were not chefs or tea masters; They were a French professor and a product designer. 

But their love of French tea – the creative flavors, luxurious packaging, and expert service – inspired them to take an entirely different approach to tea that went beyond health, and beyond tradition and transformed tea into an experience.

They allowed themselves to get really creative and curious and dream up a tea brand in the spirit of the innovation and craft that surrounded them.

Since then, they've worked with chef Ori Menashe and Genevieve Gergis of Bestia and Bavel fame, Death and Co, cult ice cream brand Salt & Straw, and Michelin-starred chef April Bloomfield at Hearth and Hound. 

August Uncommon Tea is non-GMO ethically sourced from tea-producing countries all over Asia and Africa and fair trade; blended in Germany by a company that has been producing and sourcing tea for over a hundred and fifty years. 

Today we are giving away a Deluxe essential tea kit which includes 4-cup loose tea samples of all available August teas. That makes a total of 128 cups of tea! All Their blends are original and available nowhere else.  

Perfect for literally anyone who enjoys relaxing with and breathing in the aroma of a great cup of tea,  you can purchase any of the amazing August tea blends your heart desires at august.la.
