Mindfulness is a state of active, open attention on the present. The Mindful Rebel Podcast Series is designed to bring attention to everyday leaders in our community and focus on where they are currently in their leadership journey. The audio podcast will inspire and empower other ambitious individuals by sharing the advice of those who are demonstrating success in life and in their respective areas of impact. As such, the interviews that will be conducted will be with entrepreneurs, creatives, educational leaders, speakers, and community organizers. 


Topics discussed include leadership growth, gender, sexuality, entrepreneurship, productivity, personal development, overcoming adversity, financial wellness, motivation, and success.
