Loves, I’ve got to say this is my very first time hearing a business story that starts with a wild sabbatical in the desert. We all deal with traumatic life experiences differently. I usually eat sugar, cry, and watch Netflix. For Hallie Mazurkiewicz, she found herself heading into the desert where she would spend three days fasting in complete solitude with nothing but a book of poems and a journal. I know. Hella inspirational. This entire conversation with Hallie is inspiring and encourages you to slow down, look inwards, and listen for your own quiet whisper from the universe.

We talk about…

  • How Hallie transitioned from her career in teaching to entrepreneurship
  • How she handled the traumatic experience of her stepbrother dying at a very young age
  • Why she ended a relationship with her life partner, packed everything up, and moved to New York City
  • How a 10-day vision quest into the desert and exploring her childhood journals was the catalyst for launching her business
  • Creating Lunar Wild to support and celebrate young women as they approach the onset of their first period
  • The importance of listening to your intuitive voice as an entrepreneur
