Stephanie Jones, Yoga Instructor and Online Workout Coach at Steph Yoga

Stephanie found out that the career she’d worked her way through college to get, wasn’t what she wanted. So she left the job, moved to California, and studied to become a yoga instructor.

“I used to think that yoga was something people did just to stretch. But seven years ago, to counter the stress I put on my body running, I began practicing asana and discovered something I had been seeking for years: the manifestation of meditation through motion.” – Stephanie

Adam Wisnewski, Cooking Coach of Breakfast Life and Dinner

This is the first of what I hope is many podcast interviews with freelancers, entrepreneurs, and other small business people.

After 17 years working in the technology industry, Adam Wisnewski walked away from it just as it walked away from him. Now he shares his love of cooking through education, offering group classes, appearing on television, and writing a cookbook.

“I’ve been cooking for 40 years, with more than 15 years in the restaurant business. I’ve been helping friends and family expand their cooking skills since I was in high school, now I’m ready to help you!” – Adam
