Inspiration & Information from Serial Mompreneur: Kalika Yap
Did you hear Kalika on the Mompreneur on Fire Podcast??
She was amazing. Kalika owns a media company, a high-end tanning salon, she created the LuxeLink (you know that purse hook) and she's starting a company with her kids in mind. If you haven't listened to the podcast, you can listen here. She shared so much information and I know she is always on the move, so I asked her for an update and sure enough - she did not disappoint!
Where are you with your Conscious Kids business?
We have our logo designed and packaging designed.
We are working with a mindfulness teacher to get training so the kids can work on their new app.
We met with a sound company to help develop music for the app
Kids take mindfulness classes at school too.
You mentioned you were working on 5 Foundations in the interview. Where is that from?
Better than Before by Gretchen Rubin's book. It's actually only 4 not 5! Lol
I have been trying to get 8-10 hours of rest each night when I am not traveling (and also except tonight LOL), goal is to walk 10,000 steps at least 4 times a week - I usually go to the gym after work and walk on the treadmill while reading a book, we are moving offices so I have taken the opportunity to declutter, re eat and drink - I have been eating too many sweets! 😳 and am making strides to eat vegetarian - I still don't drink alcohol, I cut out cream and sugar in my coffee, I also don't drink Diet Coke any more! 😇
What are you eating habits?
This morning I ate a bowl of Quinoa Tabbouleh that I get from Philz Coffee - I stock up on them at the office and usually eat the same thing every morning
We order from Blue Apron - a great service that delivers fresh ingredients to our home - so I or my husband cook more frequently now (which is always a lovely treat)!
I sometimes eat donuts (which I know is horrible)! Donuts remind me of my mom because she would always bring donuts to the office - but my mom agrees I shouldn't eat donuts! Lol
I do forget to eat lunch at times but my husband (who joined the companies) usually makes me aware and or brings me food - we actually took a walk (three times this month!) to get food at a local restaurant! Wow
What books are now on your nightstand?
Currently reading Zero to One by Peter Theil
Another great book I just finished is Daring Greatly (by Brene Brown)! Wow! What a life changer!
What is the gift you love to give away?
Flowers and candles.
Name something that is $100 or less that you love!
Hugs and kisses from my kids and hubby.
