Whitney Bell is an LA based activist, entrepreneur, Teen Vogue writer, and producer of the vulnerability variety show, Stories of Women. We sat down in Las Vegas at the Emerge Music Festival for this live interview. 

Whitney not only make really inspiring and moving work, but also manages to lift up others' while still prioritizing her own self care. She's a successful multi hyphenate who has worked through her childhood trauma and an eating disorder through therapy and medication and channeled her experiences into her artwork. She's known for her hugely popular art installation, "I Didn't Ask For This: A Lifetime of Dick Pics", and has since gone on to launch her own clothing line, Kid Bell, and storytelling platform, Stories of Women.

In this week's episode she talks about her experience of burnout, mistakes in relationships, building a team, and punishing her body. Now she's in a place where she prioritized her mental and physical health, helps other people, and is constantly creating but in a way that's sustainable. We had a cozy conversation that talked about her habits and routines, the best advice from her therapist Jennifer, and what her younger self would have thought of her life now.

I first became aware of Tina Essmaker when I discovered her interviews in the magazine she co-founded The Great Disconnect, a digital and print magazine that focuses on the stories behind creatives. 2017 was a pivotal year for Tina who experienced huge change when her marriage with her business partner ended. 

We discuss the lessons in vulnerability this gave her and the opportunity to redefine her career returning to her roots in social work. Give it a listen!
