The time has finally come! The women that inspired me to start my podcast are actually guests on Embraced. Back in October, I was driving to work listening to my favorite podcast, Almost 30 (a health and wellness podcast about the transition between your 20's and 30's…and any age really), when I got the crazy idea that I wanted to reach a larger audience with my ideas about female empowerment through the platform of a podcast. I had learned so much from hearing the guests on Almost 30, and Krista and Lindsey made me feel like I was just hanging with my girls, having a glass of wine, discussing anything and everything. These beautiful, hilarious, down-to-earth women have created something truly special, which is evident in the fact that they have 20,000 followers on Instagram, they've created a large community of dedicated followers (mostly women) in their secret Facebook group, who support one another by being vulnerable and sharing their life struggles and successes, and they were on track to have a million downloads by the end of the year (I wouldn't be at all surprised if they surpassed this by now). They are so supportive of their community and they reject the idea that women have to be catty or in competition with one another. I had SOOOO much fun doing this episode and could have talked to these ladies forever (slash I was fangirling pretty hard and want to be their best friend). On today's episode we talked about…

  • What Krista and Lindsey were doing before starting Almost 30
  • Our thoughts on Los Angeles (where they currently live) vs. New York (they both lived in NYC before the podcast)
  • Where they got the idea to start Almost 30, and how the podcast has evolved over time
  • How they knew they had hit it big, and what it has been like to be in the public eye
  • How they were able to create such a warm and supportive community
  • How planning events and meet-ups strengthens the Almost 30 community
  • Why it is so important to them to be authentic and real
  • Their future plans for Almost 30 (hint: it will be MUCH more than a podcast)

I am SO SO pumped about this episode and can't wait for you to hear it!! If you haven't listened to Almost 30 Podcast yet, DO IT! Trust me, you won't regret it.
