Diane came on the show to tell us about her company: The Naked Tart and you'll find out that besides having a way cool business name, she also has a cool story about her journey to a plantbased - vegan lifestyle. You'll hear about the story of the motivation for her company and how the motivation came from a conversation she overheard while standing in line. (A constant reminder for all of us to always be PRESENT IN THE MOMENT as we never know where inspiration and/or motivation will find us). She saw a way that she could use her skills to make a positive difference and at the same time do something she has a passion for....isn't that what life is all about? Thanks so much to Diane for sharing with us on this show and for exposing the world to...The Naked Tart.
