Barbara Kramer, Founder + Vision Holder, The Plant Lore Agency, On CBD, Plant Alchemy, and Navigating Life Through The Lens Of Curiosity

Barbara Kramer has been disrupting the fashion world for over four decades with her trailblazing and pioneering sales agencies, trade shows, and concepts, now she is turning her talent and expertise to the world of CBD and plant wellness with the launch of her new sales and representation company, The Plant Lore Agency, where she is the Founder and Vision Holder.

Focused on plant alchemy, The Plant Lore Agency is the first sales and representation agency specializing in carefully curated, emerging plant rooted products and brands in beauty and wellness with top shelf ingredients including CBD from HEMP, Adaptogens and Mushrooms, and the entire plant kingdom.

In 2018, Barbara followed her long-held love of Eastern and alternative plant medicine to focus her discerning eye and brand building know-how towards creating The Plant Lore Agency. Today the agency has an exciting portfolio of brands including Aiure Editions of Nature, Aurora Elixirs, Beboe, Buddha Bean Coffee, CBD +Nature, grön, Essentials by Adele, Hello Goldie, Love Lynn Botanicals, Lucient Botanicals,  Mi Moi, Onda and more.

World renowned for launching the first multi-brand, gender inclusive showroom and sales agency;  identifying the emergence of unisex dressing in the marketplace and launching the International Design Group trade show to support this new trend; forming a stand-alone men’s and women’s eponymous sales agency in NYC that represented game- changing design leaders such as Jean Paul Gaultier, Vivienne Westwood and Armand Basi; and is co-founder of the highly regarded women’s advanced young designer trade fair, Designers & Agents. Now in its 25th year. It should come as no surprise that Barbara is cultivating and launching this new platform in the world of plant beauty and wellness.

On today’s Marni on the Move episode, Barbara takes us back to where it all began, her early roots in fashion, her spiritual life journey, sage entrepreneurial wisdom and lessons, listening for the good invitations in life, how she is turning her talent to cultivate and grow emerging, high quality companies in plant based beauty and wellness, her new installment at 10 Corso Como and how The Plant Lore Agency is becoming the trusted voice amongst buyers and retailers in the busy lane of CBD and Plant Wellness.

Anne Mahlum On Running With Purpose: From Building The Fastest Growing Boutique Fitness Company To Training For Her Next Marathon

Since the age of 16, Anne Mahlum has logged thousands of miles running with purpose! Running for athleticism, confidence, empowerment, and of course for fun with 12 Marathons in the books. She is also running and has built two incredibly successful companies. Anne Mahlum is the Founder, Owner and CEO of [solidcore], one of the fastest-growing boutique fitness companies, which she founded in Washington, DC in 2013. There are now more than 57 locations nationwide and over 100,000 clients, including Michelle Obama. Prior to [solidcore], Anne founded of Back on My Feet, a non-profit organization she built in Philadelphia in 2007, that uses the power of running to change the way those experiencing homelessness see themselves so they can make real change in their lives.

Anne has been on track for success in all aspects of her life for over a decade but this summer a devastatingly serious Jet Skiing accident, resulting in a compound femur fracture, temporarily set her back. And I say temporarily because within three weeks of being in the hospital and the accident she signed up for the United Airlines Rock ‘N’ Roll Washington DC Marathon taking place on March 28th, 2020. Her boyfriend and friends offered to run with her and when Lululemon caught wind of her running comeback, they offered to pitch in and pay for 10 spots for individuals that wanted to run, who were also facing challenges and adversity joining in the [solidcore] mission, Stronger Together. [solidcore] is now sponsoring 30 spots and over 250 people have signed up for the half or full as part of the [solidcore] Team.

On this episode, Marni syncs up with Anne about her long standing relationship with running and how this incredible sport weathered her through challenges and successes in life, the inspiration behind [solidcore] and Back on My Feet, she shares what happened in her accident this summer and how she has once again turned to running to help mentally and physically get her back on her feet. It’s a super inspiring and fun conversation.

[solidcore] is offering $5 off an intro NYC 3 Pack to all of our listeners. Just use the code ONTHEMOVE5 upon checkout and get your sweat on!
