Chris Clearfield On Why Systems Fail: From Oil Spills To Overcooked Holiday Meals + The Simple Solutions You Can Employ, Whether You Are Managing A Team Or Your Family’s Morning Routine

It all began when derivatives trader and commercially licensed airline pilot, Chris Clearfield, started seeing parallels between the financial crisis and aviation accidents all throughout his career.  In 2010, when the Deepwater Horizon Rig exploded in the Gulf of Mexico, the idea for his book, Meltdown, was sparked. Since then Chris has been researching and comparing major catastrophes around the world. Meltdown offers a groundbreaking take on how complexity causes failure in all kinds of modern systems — from social media to air travel—this practical and entertaining book reveals how we can prevent meltdowns in business and life.

Chris Clearfield is the Co-Author (with Andras Tilcsik) of Meltdown: What Plane Crashes, Oil Spills, and Dumb Business Decisions Can Teach us About How To Succeed at Work and Home. This book is all about why our systems fail and what we can do about it.  It’s definitely a business book however, you can absolutely apply the principles to family, fitness, training and life.

Chris was in town a few months ago, visiting from Seattle. We went for a run then recorded the podcast with today’s special co-host, Lori Mazor.  You may know Lori from way back when, episode one. She is my partner in life and racing. Lori connected everyone for the podcast and is a huge fan of the book and has direct experience using some of the principles within.

In the book, Chris and Andras weave together cutting edge social science with riveting stories that take us from the front lines of the Volkswagon scandal to backstage at the Oscars, and from deep beneath the Gulf of Mexico to the top of Mount Everest. They explain how the increasing complexities of our systems create conditions ripe for failure and why our brains can’t keep up. Chris and Andras highlight the paradox of progress: while modern systems have given us new capabilities, they’ve become vulnerable to surprising meltdowns—and even corruption and misconduct.

Chris shares many of these stories and examples on today’s episode but we also explore his philosophy thru the lens of triathlon and family. Meltdown by Chris Clearfield and András Tilcsik is now available in paperback and of course, as an audiobook, which I downloaded and listened to on Audible

Denise Lee, CEO + Founder, Alala, On Fashion, Fitness and Female Empowerment

Denise Lee always knew she wanted to be an entrepreneur. Growing up in Hong Kong, she moved to NYC to go to NYU Stern and pursue her dreams. But it wasn’t until she started training for her first triathlon in 2012 that she had her “aha” moment. As an avid athlete, she couldn’t find any activewear brand that offered the effortless cool styles of the contemporary designers she loved. Denise found the market lacking in a sense of creativity. Flash forward to 2014, she launched Alala. Today the brand is one of the leading modern activewear brands, providing women with sophisticated style, designs and silhouettes that are chic, comfortable, and workout ready!

On today’s episode, Denise and I sync up about where Alala began, her personal and brand mission, Alala’s very cool and forward thinking design collaborations and partnerships, and the workouts that fuel her for success.

Alala was one of the premier brands on the athleisure landscape catering to the studio going, class loving fitness crowd while appealing to women who wanted comfortable stylish active wear to wear to the office or lounge at home, five years later they continue to innovate. Alala is now carried in over 100 major retailers including Bloomingdales and Neiman Marcus, and it has been seen on celebs Ashley Grahm, Reese Witherspoon, Naomi Watts, and Jessica Alba. But these celebrities are not the only stars wearing Alala, it’s the strong and inspiring women around the country that really shine for Alala and Denise Lee!

In 2010, former Stanford University swim team co-captains, All-American swimmers Rob Canales and Kurt Spenser decided it would be a great idea to do an Ironman 70.3 in Austin as a fun way to reconnect and get back in shape after nearly a decade had gone by from their days of competitive swimming. This race was the launching point for how the world’s fastest wetsuit was created and marked the beginning of the game-changing athletic performance brand, ROKA.

Zach Adelman, CEO+ Founder, Navitas Organics, On CBD, Maca and the Superfoods In Between!

Pursuing his passion and doing what he loves is how Zach Adelman has been living most of his life from following the Grateful Dead to uprooting his life and work to Whistler so he could Ski every day.  It’s only natural that when a friend introduced him to the powerful Incan superfood, Maca,  and he experienced the healthy benefits of this powerful ingredient, he developed a new passion which fueled the next chapter of his life. Zach’s curiosity about ancient cultures and traditional foods led to a special collaboration with a small farmer cooperative in Peru and  Navitas Organics® began.

The Canadian born and raised, Peruvian inspired, Marin County resident’s journey into wellness was organic.

From Maca and Cacao to CBD and Hemp and the superfoods in between, Zach Adelman and his company, Navitas Organics®, have been pioneers on the wellness scene since launching in 2003 and continue to innovate and grow. The company offers a wide range of nourishing foods used for baking, cooking, smoothie making and ready to pop-in-your-mouth snacking to empower a modern, nutritious lifestyle. The wellness products include single ingredients, snack foods, nutritional blends and bars.

Just this week they are launching a line of CBD infused nutrient dense ready to drink wellness shots with Acai , Matcha, turmeric, and goji for wellness needs: calm, focus, restore, bliss, and a line of ready to mix, (non-dairy) Superfood Lattes including Matcha, Cacao, and Tumeric.

On this episode, Zach + Marni  talk about where and how Navitas Organics® began, his entrepreneurial wellness journey, what it was like pioneering a growing his business, the robust superfoods that are essential to Navitas Organics®, his wonderful family and the workouts that fuel him for success.

Navitas Organics® is a premium organic superfood company offering the best quality, plant-based and superfood ingredients and snacks. Most Navitas Organics® products are USDA certified organic, non-GMO and contain health benefits that have been celebrated for generations – handled with purpose and care to preserve their vital superfood nutrients.

I have been mixing their plant-based superfoods into my smoothies for years.  I love their Cacao, Camu Camu, Hemp Protein and essential superfood blends which I use daily for protein and greens, post-workout.

If you are part of the Marni on the Move influencer network or recently attended our LIVE Marni on the Move summit, Well Intentioned, January 2019, you probably received a single serve sample of their essential superfood blends and Cacao  and are well aware of these delicious products and their health benefits.

I hope you enjoy today’s episode.

LIVE from NYC: How To Adopt An Athletic Mindset For Life, Career, + Training with Andia Winslow, Andrew Kalley, Louis Sagar, and Murray Hidary

Today’s episode is all about mindset and intentions across athleticism, career, fitness, and wellness.  You will hear from former podcast guests (on new topics) including top professional and elite athletes, Andia Winslow and Andrew Kalley, and entreprenurs and founders Murray Hidary and Louis Sagar and learn how they  leveraged thier athletic mindset to empower them with the perseverence, focus, and dedication to succeed in their career, the strenth and flexibility to power through severe life illnesses and overcome family loss.  From triathlon, golf and running to CBD, music, and meditation you will be inspired and motivated to get started on your next athletic or entreprenurial endeavor.

This was the first Marni on the Move LIVE panel which took place at world renowned athletic complex and NYC gym, Chelsea Piers Fitness.Panel guests include:Professional Athlete-Golfer and Runner, Andia Winslow, who has been building her career as a successful on-air personality and voice over talent over the past several years, Andrew Kalley, an winning Elite Athlete, triathlon coach and personal trainer at Chelsea Piers Fitness with his own portfolio of clients at Kalley Fitness, Louis Sager, the CEO of The Alchemist’s Kitchen , and Murray Hidary, piianist, entrepreneur, creator of MindTravel, a musical meditation and experience.

It truly was a magical evening. We were on the deck outside, overlooking the Hudson. The event began with the panel, where listeners got to experience first-hand,, what it was like to be part of the podcast with digital wireless headsets almost as if they were in the room where it happens, thanks to Murray Hidary of MindTravel. Following the panel, Chelsea Piers Fitness talented and popular yoga teacher, Danielle Prager led a vinyasa style yoga class to the music of MindTravel and Murray continued to play trugh savasana into the night.

While all of this sounds wonderful and amazing, the episode audio is a little rough at first. Like a true entrepreneur, I had a vision and took a big risk, my first time recording a live event at this venue and really set the barre high. We were outside, recording digitally, no wires, with some technical interference and signals and occasional helicopters in the background.  My audio engineers are terrific. But it’s not the same as being in the studio so I wanted to prepare you for a few glitches here and there. However, it’s a really inspiring and empowering conversation and can maybe plant some seeds for you as we move into the New Year!

Dylan Lauren, Founder and CEO of Dylan’s Candy Bar On Imagination, Innovation, and Inspiration

Nearly two decades ago my  next guest pioneered creating the world’s largest candy store, confectionery emporium and lifestyle brand, Dylan’s Candy Bar. Dylan Lauren merged her love of art, fashion and pop culture with candy and has innovated the way we see and experience candy today. Her story is empowering and inspiring as she pursued her lifelong dream to do what she loves. She transformed her creative vision into a reality and continues to innovate every day.

If you haven’t already been, Dylan’s Candy Bar transports you to a modern day version of Willy Wonka’s factory from the moment you enter with its pop art installations—such as the iconic oversized lollipop tree, candy cane columns, dripping chocolate shelves, kaleidoscopic candy wallpaper and candy-embedded staircases— even I can’t resist.

In addition to thousands of edible treats and activities, there are also candy-inspired lifestyle products. From stationery to technology, toys, jewelry to handbags, scented body lotions to sweaters. There are Ice Cream & Dessert Parlor, Candy Cocktail Bar and Party Rooms offering a wide variety of themed events for all ages

Since its inception and flagship opening in New York City, Dylan’s Candy Bar has expanded to US locations such as Chicago, Los Angeles, Miami and East Hampton. Also in luxury boutiques, department stores, and premium hotels nationally and internationally. Dylan’s Candy Bar plans to continue expanding worldwide.

Dylan’s love of candy paralleled by her passion to help animals of all kinds.  She launched Dylan’s Candy Barn, a platform with the mission is to help every animal lead a happy life and find a home-sweet-home by hosting adoption events, granting funds to rescue organizations, and creating awareness campaigns.

And last but not least, ever since I have known Dylan, which is probably also nearly two decades, she has been super athletic, into fitness and training and followed an incredibly healthy diet mixed with candy, of course!

Fueled by exercise, fitness, and her love of candy, Dylan is all about balance and always has been.

On this episode of Marni on the Move, Dylan and Marni met up at  her newly designed office to reconnect and sync up about everything from our shared love of animals, being a founder and  entrepreneur and the innovative Dylan’s Candy Bar, her current fitness “go-to” and her adorable children Cooper Blue and Kingsley Rainbow.
