hip tranquil chick podcast #88: launching

Welcome to the 88th edition of the Hip Tranquil Chick podcast: a guide to life on and off the yoga mat.

Today’s menu features a must-have pose in On the Mat, an insightful interview with Ladies Who Launch Co-Founders Beth and Victoria on Launching in Off the Mat, and we’ve got Omwork and Savvy Sources for you too. View our shownotes at hiptranquilchick.com/blog.

1. What do you dream of launching?
2. What small steps can you take today to get you closer to your dream?
3. Write a press release in future tense announcing your most fabulously hip and tranquil life.
