Christine D’ Ercole is a Masters World Champion and five-time National Champion Track Cyclist, as well as an extremely popular and empowering Peloton Senior Instructor.

During our conversation Christine shares her experience as a professional athlete and how she came to join Peloton—the groundbreaking, popular, and world renowned fitness and entertainment platform. Christine also opens up to me about her recent health scare, and how she’s using her platform as a Peloton instructor to encourage people to take time to care for their bodies. Christine’s inspiring story will motivate you to fully embrace her signature mantra; I am, I can, I will, I do.

156. Steve Schwartz Founder & CEO, Art of Tea, On Blending Ayurveda, Tea & Career

Master Tea Blender and the Founder of Art of Tea, Steve Schwartz’s fascination with tea began in 1996 while studying preventative and holistic medicine at the Ayurvedic Institute in New Mexico. He learned that tea is so much more than a warm, comforting beverage—it’s a gateway to better health, happiness, and productivity.

At Art of Tea, Steve applies his background in Ayurveda, initially cultivated during his time studying at the Ayurvedic Institute in New Mexico, to the creation of award-winning blends that showcase his passion for the alchemy of combining herbs and botanicals

Originally drawn to the field after his mom died of cancer when he was 19-years-old. Steve became curious about Eastern and preventative medicine as an alternative to the Western medicine that failed to save his mom. Following his tenure at the Ayurvedic Institute, Schwartz traveled the world to meet with farmers in Asia, India, Africa and the Middle East to broaden his knowledge of tea, and learn how climate and terroir impacts its expression and flavor.

On this episode, Steve shares his extensive knowledge of all things Ayurveda, tea and where the two intersect. We talk the various origins of black, white, green, and oolong teas, as well as the health and wellness benefits of each unique blend. Steve chats with me about his experiences traveling around the world in search of the highest quality leaves, and his rise to prominence as a the first master tea blender in the U.S.

Steve and I sync up about the inspiration behind Art of Tea, and the entrepreneurial mindset that powered his company to success. Steve shares invaluable advice on following your passion, and never being too afraid to take a risk. Steve also lets me in of the mindfulness and exercise routines that help him live a balanced, fulfilled, and focused life.

Steve’s drive and passion for expanding people’s knowledge of the history of tea has cultivated relationships with brands, acclaimed chefs and restaurants such as Google, Vera Wang, #Slack, The Peninsula Hotels, Huntington Gardens, Wolfgang Puck, Adam Perry Lang, Rustic Canyon Group, Craft Los Angeles and more.

Today, Art of Tea is an award-winning tea importer and wholesaler based in Los Angeles  that hand-blends and custom crafts the finest organic teas and botanicals. Since he founded the company in 2004, Steve has grown Art of Tea into a leading purveyor of organic and specialty teas, and he is a guiding voice within the industry. Art of Tea offers a broad spectrum of teas including its single-origin collection a wellness line featuring teas that combine herbs and botanical, Iced tea and ceremonial grade matcha.

155. Nicole Bernard Dawes, Nixie Sparkling Water, Founder & CEO On Fueling with Nutritious Snacks & Healthy Hydration and Finding The Sparkle in Life

Nicole Bernard Dawes’ inspiration for Nixie Sparkling Water was a lifetime in the making—literally. Nicole’s passion for creating healthy solutions for snack time began when she was a child growing up in her mom’s health food store. But, as Nicole got older, she realized there was a serious lack of healthy, satisfying, and delicious snacks in the nutrition sector. The solution? The launch of Nicole’s very own healthy snack and beverage companies, Late July and Nixie Sparkling Water.

This pioneering business owner is dedicated to transforming the food and beverage industry by creating delicious, organic options. As Founder and CEO of Nixie Sparkling Water, Dawes draws upon her lifetime of experience in the industry to offer a superior-tasting and certified USDA organic, non-GMO sparkling water that doesn’t contain synthetic solvents, carriers or artificial preservatives. Since Nixie first hit stores in 2019, Dawes has led the Bay Area-based brand’s growth into 4,000 retailers nationwide. 

On this episode, Nicole shares her journey as an entrepreneur in the food and beverage space. She talks growing up with both of her parents working in the food industry, and how that experience instilled in her a lifelong love of quality snacks. We chat about the inspiration behind her first company, Late July, and her motivation to launch her newest endeavor, Nixie Sparkling Water, a line of refreshing, flavorful sparkling water.

Nicole and I sync up about the challenges of promoting Nixie Sparkling Water during the COVID-19 pandemic, and her commitment to supporting retailers, and her empowering company culture.

Of course, I touch base with Nicole about how she balances entrepreneurship with family life, and the wellness routines that keep her motivated and ready to invent the next best thing in nutritious snacking.
