Wake up. Be awesome.
A sneak peek into my yoga practice:
The reason I’m so happy everyday (best job ever!):
Grateful to be raised in abundance of love:
Feeling blessed to be living bliss!
I believe that everyone should be given the tools to live a healthy, empowered lifestyle. Yoga and joy is a gift meant to be shared, so let me know: What can I make to serve you?
Do you want strength-building flows? Meditations? Beginner or advanced poses? More videos of my practice? How long would you want to do a yoga video for? The more I know, the better I can cater to your needs!
Please subscribe here for upcoming videos made in love for you + share with one friend who is ready to choose healthy too!
Wishing you a BEAUTIFUL, blessed day! xox
The sun is shining, the birds chirp-chirping… top it off with a creamy avocado cheesecake to enjoy outside and holy bliss, life is awesome!
It’s been a month full of BIG decisions for me, tumultuous change, and incredible growth. I feel like a little caterpillar karate-kicking out of my cocoon… and shyly peeking out at the world for the first time. A little scared, a lot excited. Oh, the places we will go!
But how lovely it is to settle still for awhile and simply enjoy: the tickling winds, a rich avocado, the giggling kiddies in my yoga class. Life is simple. Life is easy. Life is good.
Wishing you lifetimes of happiness! <3
Coat little cake pan in shredded coconut (to help with sticking).
Chop pecans in food processor, add in shredded coconut, then dates. Pat 1/2 mixture on bottom of cake pan, saving the rest for the top.
Mix cashews and pine nuts in food processor. Slowly add in dates, avocado, bananas + love. When creamy, pour on top of crust.
Put one more layer of crust on top to seal the cake. Freeze overnight. To serve, let thaw slightly, slice and decorate with fresh fruit and coconut!
Bless with happy thoughts and enjoy!
what we see
is merely a reflection
of who we are
for sunshine, sparkles and smiles,
for moments of balance in a life of chaos,
for happy, happy times,
Be not afraid to bare your soul.
Jared Kleinert is the kind of guy you meet and instantly adore.
His warm, goofy smile and kick-ass determination to do good is an inspiration to people everywhere. At only 17-years-old, he is the CEO of a start-up called Synergist, a social network designed to connect passionate entrepreneurs and support them with tools for creating change.
I had the honour of interviewing him live today, and introduce him to you with great pleasure!
Sufey: 5-4-3-2-1… We are live! Jared, can you introduce yourself and tell us what Synergist is all about?
Jared: Hello! I’m a 17-year old social entrepreneur in South Florida. Synergist is a crowd-sourcing site for social entrepreneurs to create, collaborate and share movements and enterprises. It’s really just about bringing people together for social good. It kind of started with the Occupy Wall Street Movement, we’re looking for those kinds of movements. The whole point is to connect people to innovate in a useful way and actually get things done; for people from all different walks of life to come together and make change.
Sufey: Cool! So how do you make this happen?
Jared: People can post an idea in the “Create” section, or if they have an idea they want to test out and need team members (i.e. a web developer), they can find that. Once they make a team, they can move to “Collaborate”, which is a free online workspace for people to build up their idea. Finally, they move to “Share”, which is a crowd-sourcing platform like Kickstarter or IndieGoGo to raise money for their ideas.
Sufey: Awesome. You’re one of the first crowd-sourcing sites to crowd-source your own site, aren’t you?
Jared: Yeah! Yeah, we’re one of the first at the intersection of crowd-sourcing social good, very socially-driven. It’s really exciting: Fast Company called it recursive crowd-sourcing, very meta-idea, lean start-up like, we’ll see if it works!
Sufey: So at 17, what are some of the challenges of doing this?
Jared: Well, something you really don’t like is the fact that I don’t get much sleep. Another challenge is the social life in high school. I tend to look more towards the Under 20 community and UnCollege network more for friends- I can relate more to kids like you and me who are doing things at a very young age.
Sufey: Absolutely. What kind of advice would you give to another entrepreneur that’s just starting out?
Jared: Never give up. Entrepreneurship is just perseverance. It doesn’t matter if you start at a young or old age, you’re going to run into problems; it’s natural. There’s never going to be a perfect day. Just persevere, and good things will happen.
Become friends with as many different people as possible. Everyone can offer you something, so never take anyone for granted. Try not to stereotype, just be a friendly person.
Sufey: I love that! Who inspires you in this world?
Jared: My mentor is David Hassel from 15Five, a company I work for in the Silicon Valley. People like Elon Musk inspire me, he juggles two billion dollar businesses and thinks about game-changing plans like electric cars and space missions, which is pretty cool.
I would say the biggest inspiration is my mother. I see how hard she works on a daily basis trying to raise me and my brother. She’s an extremely bright women, entrepreneurial, but she’s trapped in – a good job, but – a somewhat normal life. I want to scale my efforts and make a name for myself, so she’s really my biggest motivation and biggest supporter. I know it sounds cheesy, but it really starts there.
Synergist launches TOMORROW, April 27th, so check ‘em out here and send some love to society’s youngest entrepreneurs.
Kudos and good luck, Jared. The world needs great people like you!
forget the rest
It’s a lazy, hazy, Sunday. So here’s a little somethin’ to spice up your blue skies, sugar.
A crispy, crunchy classic.
In all honesty, I debated posting this easy recipe (after all, you must have seen it before). But I thought, the simplest things can be enjoyed over and over again, can’t they?
Every time it’s so different, everything is. I never stop shivering delight when sun wakes me in the morning- it’s a new day, and I might do the same things, but they’ll be different. I never get tired of a deep, luscious shavasana at the end of a yoga class. I never get tired of hugs or kisses or smiles from strangers. I never get tired of connecting with beautiful people, of reading your comments, of sharing secrets, though some days are busier than others.
And at the end of the day, I hope I never get tired of living, of trying, of burning bright and out and lying soft in the shadows till a new fire alights.
And I hope you don’t either, because life is too short and too precious to be tired just yet. Save that for next century.
A little deep for a post on sweet potatoes, but hey, it’s all with love.
Thanks for being here with me on this journey. I’m happy to be your friend. <3
Preheat oven to 450oF.
Slice sweet potato into thin 1/4″ circles. Drizzle with olive oil, sea salt, cayenne, cinnamon and love. Toss to coat and lay flat on baking sheet.
Bake 10 minutes. Take out of oven & flip slices over. Bake 10 more minutes.
Let cool (if you want the crunch), and enjoy! Mmm. Happy Sunday!
