AYO Yogurt’s Matt Billings and the Emotional Institute’s Bernadette Pleasant on The Backpack Show

Episode Description

Innovating in the Food Industry and Overcoming Grief: On this episode of The Backpack Show with Chris Brogan and Kerry O'Shea Gorgone, we'll talk with Matt Billings, founder of vegan and organic AYO Almond Yogurt. Matt has a long family history of farming almonds in California’s sun-soaked San Joaquin Valley. In 1913, his great grandfather established a legacy of responsible farming in California.

We'll talk with Matt about how, four generations later, he carries on this legacy. We'll also cover the process behind his new line of probiotic-rich organic almond yogurt that’s crafted from “farm-to-spoon”. Matt aims to bring the great taste of heart-healthy, dairy-free almond yogurt to homes across America. https://ayoyogurt.com/

And we'll meet Bernadette Pleasant, a healer, dancer and entrepreneur. Drawing on the tradition of African American women as natural healers, Bernadette is an outspoken, charismatic thought leader whose transformative mantra is perfect for when change is in the air. We'll talk with Bernadette about founding the Emotional Institute, creating a an emotionally conscious world, and the Grief Ritual she offers (for free!) that can help you to release sorrow, anger, fear, and numbness. https://www.theemotionalinstitute.com/
