You know us; we’re all about radical transparency — and this episode is no exception. In fact, this may be one of our most raw, honest, transparent conversations to-date. And, on top of that, one of the most important.


Our guest today, Millana Snow, is a woman of color who has built an energy healing business from the ground-up that serves thousands of clients worldwide. Her business, Wellness Official, makes wellness and healing accessible for everyone through their carefully curated workshops, remote sessions, and content with well-respected practitioners around the world.


We cannot speak highly enough of Millana and the incredible transparency and openness she shared with us in today’s episode. This is truly a conversation that we can all learn and grow from. Millana really exposes the blind spots that we may not be thinking of on a day-to-day basis regarding racial inequity and highlights the real, important change that we all should be engaging in. This conversation was not only engaging it was tough and uncomfortable. But these are exactly the sorts of conversations we need to be having that are so vital to this movement. We cannot wait for all you to listen in and share your thoughts.
