Listen to episode 64 and hear the subtle difference between help and support and decide for yourself which word empowers you more.

spitfire podcast 2019 guests (3).jpg

When we last saw Andromeda Peters she was sporting the Miss Virginia Unites States crown and sash and was preparing for Miss United States. Her days were filled with physical, mental and emotional training all while working her full-time job as a licensed therapist. She thought she was busy then...

Then she won Miss United States and her past view of a full schedule seemed laughable. Now her days are filled with appearances, traveling, and getting glammed up all while still working her full-time job.

So how does she do it all without burning out?

Andromeda's got some tools for all of our schedule-overloaders to get in the driver's seat of your calendar.

Episode 54: Rewriting Your SpitFire Story

LaurenLemunyan-10.jpg

How many labels, expectations and beliefs are you carrying from your childhood that don't work for you?

For me, I was the "little girl" who made everything cute and easy even when I was boiling inside. This may have worked as a precocious 6-year-old, but didn't translate so well in the Board Room.

Episode 53: The Mad Optimist: They Give a Sh*t!

Mohammed, Anthony and Mohammed (Co-Founders of The Mad Optimist)

Mohammed, Anthony and Mohammed (Co-Founders of The Mad Optimist)

Last month Lauren met the co-founders of The Mad Optimist and had to sit down to talk about their optimistic and disruptive ways!

"It all began with three guys in Bloomington, Indiana. We lived together. Hung out together. Went to school together. And one day decided to change the world together—starting in our own kitchen.

It was here that we began hashing out our master plan for a radical new movement centered around community, kindness, transparency and equality. We also got to talking about building a business—one that puts people and the planet first, instead of profits. Sounds crazy, right?

Well, we’re doing it—and all-natural bodycare is the backbone of it all.

From soaps to soaks, we’re making products that are meant to love. And we’re having a hell of a good time doing it.

Call us crazy, but doing things a better way just isn’t that hard. We want others to do the same. And we’re eternally optimistic that our good vibes will rub off on everyone."
