What Up, Get Up Nation? My name is Ben Biddick, the Host of the Get Up Nation Podcast and Co-Author of Get Up: The Art of Perseverance with former Major League Baseball player and CEO of Lurong Living, Adam Greenberg. Recently I had the honor and privilege of speaking with Christine Moghadam, the owner, founder, and CEO of www.corcyoga.com. Corc Yoga is one of the most unique businesses I’ve ever had the privilege of experiencing. The yoga mats they create are made of cork which is harvested in a sustainable way in Portugal. Portugal’s carefully regulated cork industry protects the integrity of the cork trees while creating high-wage seasonal jobs for more than 10,000 workers who harvest the cork annually. The respect and honor shown to the trees during cork harvesting allows the trees to live their full life cycle which lasts hundreds of years. You must watch the Corc Yoga brand story video here https://bit.ly/2M9W1x3 to see this beautiful process. Christine is a noble entrepreneur and business owner committed to conducting business and enterprise in a sustainable, eco-friendly manner, and her selflessness goes even further. She is also dedicated to serving those who suffer from mental illness and cancer. I am honored Christine took time to speak with me about her unique, beautiful, and powerful business that serves and empowers others to be their finest and highest selves. Thank you, Christine, for joining me on the Get Up Nation Podcast!
