Following a career in investment banking, I headed to Bali in search of happiness, balance, and to catch up on years of sleep. Over the next year I taught English and computer skills to Balinese children, traveled throughout Southeast Asia, dove into Buddhism, my yoga and meditation practice, and more importantly spent time with people that needed care and support. Everyday of my journey I was overwhelmed by the endless abundance of love and positive energy these beautiful people were sending out to the world; despite their modest means and more than often dire living circumstances. Coconut oil is a huge part of daily wellness and I unconsciously became quite the coconut fan. Returning home I had yet to find my “divine purpose” but I was even more inspired to start something to help those in need. After a few months, my friends said – “if you’re going to talk about coconut oil so much why don’t you sell it”. Here we are today. I believe when our ambitions are aligned with our greater spiritual purpose, we can achieve anything. And I’ve always felt that kindest thing you can do, is give a child a meal – and this is the foundation of which all is built.
With a couple winks from the Universe and a lot of meditation Conscious Coconut was created. I am grateful to bring a natural remedy that millions of people have used for centuries to the public. Conscious Coconut is a tool for us to manifest both inner and outer health and wellness while also guiding ourselves towards our most divine greatness: supporting those less fortunate. Giving back is what makes you the most beautiful you could possibly be. I believe in making all decisions from pure love and with this, the world will change.
