“I learned - this was more as a teenager - that you really need to do things that yes make money, but that are deeply tied to your values and that make your heart sing.” (09:28) (Julie)
“I really fell in love with technology. I fell in love with the aspect of learning, for one thing, and that plays into coaching and yoga. But I found my way, if you will.” (15:12) (Julie)
“I consider yoga, in a lot of ways, a transitional point in my life. And it provided a lot of healing and affirmation that I was enough.” (20:41) (Julie)
“You take the valuable things you learn from your family: pay off your debt as soon as possible. But, I wanted to move forward with what I loved, instead of being beholden to some other entity where my soul was sucked dry. So, I was able to marry the two, reduce my expenditures, bootstrap everything, and do what made my heart sing at that time.” (24:53) (Julie)
“I consider life coaching and the coaching that I’m doing now as next level yoga coaching or yoga teaching, where it’s coaching the unseen.” (29:00) (Julie)
“How we think affects everything we do in our entire lives.” (36:31) (Julie)
