  • They start with Sydney telling us about herself now and then work backwards to figure out how all the pieces have fit together.
  • She tells us about growing up a curious and artistic child in Kentucky, studying to be a vet and how she found out it wasn’t the career for her.
  • She opens up about being a mother-figure to her brother while he was growing up, and about her job and life in the corporate world working in nuclear and environmental engineering.
  • Sydney tells us about how she started her yoga journey and the girls laugh over some of the silly preconceived notions about yoga.
  • Sydney tells us about how she made the tough decision to quit her job and travel the world for 2 years, and Carrie, of course, asks which country was her favorite out of the (39!) she’s traveled to.
  • Sydney talks about growing her tribe on instagram and getting organic publicity about her business and her mission.
  • Carrie wants the details on Sydney’s latest mural creation in Charlotte, and where she finds inspiration for her art.
