About the guests:

MakennaJohnston-128If Tibetan philosophies of non-attachment made passionate love to high-level business acumen with a hefty dash of bodymind connection, and raised their resultant love child on a steady diet of craft beer, traditional foods, mountain living, yoga, and snow skiing you’d have, Makenna Johnston or MakJo

MakJo is a leadership & business coach for visionary leaders–entrepreneurs, creatives, and otherwise. In 2015, she followed a lark/hunch/intuitive pull and found a team to purchase Julia Child’s summer home in Provence which is now being run as a retreat center and home for the Courageous Cooking School. She comes from a background of academia both as a professor and as a PhD Candidate at the European Graduate School. She has over a decade of experience working with Fortune 500 companies, coaches, organizations, artists, and writers to create strategic visions and missions that kick ass and take names. 

She’s a big picture see-er, and can whip nearly any vision into actionable shape. Her book, The Intention Generation, published by Difference Press is available now on Amazon.   She’s mighty tall. Mighty fun. And mighty into kimonos (and manatees). She probably likes you a lot, and don’t be surprised if she asks you to be her best friend.
