How do we get clear on where we are going? Our society glorifies the "busy hustler" - but what do you when overwhelm, anxiety, and feelings of despair can't seem to go away? On this episode we chat with Jonathan Jackson  Co-Founder and Head of Corporate Brand at Blavity. As a writer and strategist, his work focuses on the intersection of people, influence, and culture. Jonathan dives into a must-needed discussion on mental health and self-care and what that actually can look like for millennial creatives, entrepreneurs, and hustlers who want to make an impact - but want to learn how to keep afloat while doing so. He shares stories from his own self-care journey as well as advice and strategies we can use to make sure we're creating places of transformation in our lives.

Jonathan graduated from Washington University in 2013, where he studied Political Science and Writing. He serves on the Nielsen External Advisory Council, is an OCP Policy Center Emerging Leader, and a 2018 Knight Visiting Nieman Fellow at Harvard University.

How much do you believe in your vision? How much would you RISK to make sure the dream comes alive? We chat with Beatrice Feliu Espada - co-founder of The Honey Pot - a feminine care company born out of her need to naturally heal herself. When Beatrice faced a chronic bout of bacterial vaginitis, she became a woman on a mission, searching for natural remedies to help prevent these unruly infections. Beatrice created The Honey Pot Feminine Wash - her very own natural healing aid.

Beatrice talks about how she wasn't afraid to make strategic moves - even when there were doubters who didn't believe in the brand's longevity. Because of that belief, Beatrice was able to build a loyal following and audience, get the brand into Whole Foods and later nationwide Target Stores - one of her biggest accomplishments to date. Beatrice shares her #dreamdriving journey - from the pharmacy to retail consumer goods specialist-  and her advice for other dream drivers not afraid to GOAL BIG and RISK EVEN BIGGER

When there is a will, there is a way. If you truly want something, you have to figure out how to create your opportunities and build your own pathways to success. Sometimes we spend too much time trying to "go with the flow" and wait for things to happen to us. If you're a DREAM DRIVER, sometimes you have to get into the driver's seat and create the road ahead of you. Host Rana Campbell shares how figuring out how to "bend the rules" or the "way things are supposed to be" landed her at the Root 100 dinner in November 2017 where she got to meet some fabulous people including Common, Raheem Devaughn, Angela Rye, AJ Collaway, and more. She also discusses advocating for yourself, strategic post-opportunity creation follow-up, and the importance of grit and visualizing success before it happens.
