In this episode I talk with the husband and wife duo behind Planted in Miami, a podcast about conscious living in the Magic City. We do a deep dive into their inspirations, why they transitioned to a plant-based diet and how podcasting made them take the leap to quit their 9-5 jobs. There are lots of laughs but also great insight into the entrepreneurial life and all it entails.
