Gregory Stevens moved to Palo Alto since he wanted to live and work in a Progressive town. This episode talks about a lot of very serious issues but it’s highly palatable (and delicious.) Gregory is a bright and witty human who seems to never run out of energy. He became a Pastor at the First Baptist Church of Palo Alto — a Progressive Church. There he proceeded to question what Progress was and who gets to benefit from it. In a town filled with millionaires and billionaires, Gregory brought attention to the poor communities that are being displaced by gentrification, as well as Police Brutality. We talk about how we have to bring attention to dominant systems of power that are destroying our planet. Stevens says "Scream like hell when you see injustice. But don’t just scream — create. Your scream has to be a “doing". Create a space in which the world that you want is real. Do something that is not dominated by money. In the shell of this scary and dark world, we are creating a beautiful, bright, vibrant alternative. A heaven on earth.”Read More
We talk about her new book Disrupt-Her. A Manifesto for the Modern Woman. We talk about Entrepreneurship, naivety, business, women in business, LOHAS, and social impact. Her advice on fundraising and meeting people halfway is incredible helpful. Especially when it comes to raising funds for taboo products. I breathe a little heavy into the mic and interject excitingly. Miki had so many incredible ideas to share. Miki also talked about animal instincts in women and diversity and how they contribute to competition and the abundance mindset. Fascinating discussions abound.Read More
