In December of 2020, I stumbled upon a book called The Enlightenment of Bees by Rachel Linden. Nestled within the bookshelf like a hidden treasure, it jumped out at me because of the vibrant yellow and white coloring on the cover. Reading the description on the back cover sealed the deal that this was the book for me in this season. It simply read this, “In a romantic adventure across the globe, The Enlightenment of Bees beautifully explores what it means to find the sweet spot in life where our greatest passions meet the world’s greatest needs.”
Guys, I dove into this book and found inside the pages a beautiful story that reminded me of my purpose and passion and helped me reconnect our company to our original WHY. In a moment of insane courage, I bravely shared a post on Instagram and tagged the author, Rachel Linden, inviting her to be a guest on the podcast. To my surprise, Rachel said YES! In this episode, I chat with Rachel about her book, her work, and how she continues to write stories about strong women facing big challenges. This is a conversation you don’t want to miss! (And yes, you NEED this book!)
