Episode Description 


Today’s guest has quite the story to share with us and is a wonderful example of why we should never judge a book by it’s cover.

On the outside Cara Ferrick, entrepreneur mama extraordinaire and mom of two has it all-a beautiful family, thriving businesses (she is the owner of Core Power Yoga in Santa Barbara and opened 5 franchise studios) and lives in one of the most desirable cities in California. But just like all of us, we all have to our own story. This mama has had to go through some serious hurdles, like the tragic death of her mother to cancer, which turned her life upside-down.

The loss of her mom threw her deep into some major self reflection (and into a two year journey at sea with a gentleman partner.) This also began a journey into internal work, a yogic way of life, and listening to her internal compass

I know Cara personally, from taking her dynamic classes at Core Power yoga 5 years ago (she is the co-owner) and never knew she had quite the backstory she will be sharing with us today (which includes her two year journey as the personal assistant to Ralph Lauren in New York).

One thing I can personally attest to when it comes to Cara is her work ethic, groundedness, ambition and desire to create community anon mamas.

Her and her business partner, Brandon Cox, are both parents who share the stoke of entrepreneurship and extended their love of life and leadership to their own little ones.
