Business, Lifestyle, and Routines With The Skinny Confidential

Today’s episode is a little different than normal as I’m here with Lauryn and Michael of The Skinny Confidential to talk business, entrepreneurship and navigating the dynamic of working together as a couple. Lauryn Evarts is a well-known lifestyle and beauty blogger at The Skinny Confidential and her husband Michael Bosstick is a serial entrepreneur and founder of the podcast network Dear Media.

I met them in Finland with Four Sigmatic and wanted to have them on to talk business since I get a surprising amount of questions about that side of things and rarely talk about it. They also interviewed me on their podcast (see resources below) where I share about my own business strategies and some parts of my journey you may not have heard before.

As I said, I know this is a departure from our normal health topics, but if you’re interested in the business side at all, I think you’ll enjoy this episode.

Episode Highlights with the Skinny Confidential

  • A recap of all of our lessons from Finland
  • What we all thought of the sauna/cold plunge situation there
  • The benefit of pushing out of your comfort zone regularly
  • What our gratitude alarm is and why it started after Finland
  • How The Skinny Confidential started and grew to a massive podcast and platform
  • The ways Lauryn and Michael navigate working together as a couple
  • How they’ve grown multiple businesses
  • Lessons learned from real estate (and real estate failures)
  • How they met when they were 12 and how long it took for them to eventually start dating
  • The powerful benefit of practice that they use in many aspects of life
  • How to handle the negative aspects of social media we all encounter
  • Ways to create community in daily life
  • Lauryn’s quote (that I’ve adopted): “What you think about me is none of my business”
  • All of our morning routines

This podcast is brought to you by Ready, Set, Food!, a new company revolutionizing food allergy prevention in children. We all know that this problem is on the rise, and most of us know someone who has a child with food allergies, or have had this experience ourselves. There are many theories for this and certainly many problems that need to be addressed like gut health and immune support. Ready, Set, Food! is taking the cutting edge of research and science and using it in a practical way to help babies and children avoid food allergies in the first place. The most up-to-date studies are showing that carefully calculated early exposure in the right amounts can stop many cases of food allergies! Ready, Set, Food! makes this easy with a simple system that can be added to breastmilk, formula or baby’s first foods to give incremental and calculated exposure to the top allergens like peanuts, egg and milk. When used as directed, this can reduce the chance of allergies by up to 80% and it is recommended and overseen by many of the nation’s top pediatricians.

This podcast is brought to you by the best CBD I’ve ever tried and the one I feel is the best out there. It is called Ojai Energetics and here’s why it’s awesome… First, its over 20 times more absorbable that most CBD. Over 99% of Ojai CBD gets where it needs to go in your body because of a patented colloidal technology (it is not liposomal) like 90% of the CBD in oils don’t even make it past the gut and liver and into the blood. This is called, “The First Pass Effect”. Then 90% of the CBD that does make it through, isn’t available to the cells that need it. Ojai solves this problem with their colloidal system. I was skeptical and the first time I tried it, I felt a noticeable effect in about 15 seconds which is so much faster than the 20-30 minutes with other brands I’ve used! Their CBD derived from completely organic ingredients and batch tested by third party vendors (which is important) for heavy metals, VOCs, pesticides, herbicides, microbes, and for the content of terpenes & cannabinoids. Because this version absorbs faster, you also can know if you’re getting the right dose as too much is not optimal. Here’s how: Because Ojai works so rapidly, it causes your body’s cannabinoid receptors in the tongue to modulate. The taste will be bitter when your body needs more CBD, but will change to sweet when you have had enough. So to test this, just take a ¼ dropper, wait 30 seconds, then feel if it’s bitter or sweet. Then repeat until sweet. Ojai is also a certified B-corp and they operate their servers off of wind power, use completely recyclable packaging, and work to build relationships with the farmers who grow the ingredients they use, ensuring fair trade wages, and only supporting regenerative farming practices.

  1. I absolutely love your podcasts and have listened to the majority of them. I usually listen in the car with my kids and they love them too, but this is the second podcast in the last few weeks that I have had to turn off because it is not family-friendly. I love your content, but maybe there could be some kind of red flag or disclaimer if it’s not a kid-appropriate podcast? I look through the highlights before I play, but I didn’t expect this to be one to censor. Just a thought from a loving fan!

  2. Katie, this might be a strange question; however, do you think Lauryn would be willing to share a picture of the dish brush she uses for dry brushing?

    Thank you, Katie, for all the hard work you do to share such great information with your community!
