“Service is not something you imagine doing at the end of your life hoping you’ve left enough time to make a difference. It’s a purposeful act done every day, as the center of your world, while letting the rest of your life fall into place around it.”

This story was from the September 2016 Fulfillament in Traverse City, MI. Fulfillament is a storytelling event featuring local community leaders and entrepreneurs who share their journey towards fulfillment and meaning through vocation- their inside story. Each storyteller issues a challenge for the audience to do something to find fulfillment in their own lives.  This event awards a $500 grant to an audience member with a good idea that needs some help to get it moving. 

The Conscious Entrepreneur is coaching and strategy for those looking to create or find meaningful work aligned with your values, strengths and what makes you come alive.  Make your ideas happen, be successful, make a difference, from the inside out.

This Podcast is all about personal, inside stories from Conscious Entrepreneurs… Why they do what they do, how did they get there, and how does it make them come alive?

TCE 037: Bryan Ulbrich, the Conscious Wine & Cider Creator

Bryan has been in the wine industry since 1993. The realization that a part-time cellar rat position could develop into a legitimate career path spurred him to pursue a winemaking apprenticeship rather than a Ph.D. in political science (real tough choice, eh?).  The apprenticeship transformed into a winemaking and general management position.  Without pause, 11 years passed.  He was fortunate to be part of the modern evolution of the Michigan Wine Industry and realized it was time to start the long process of building a wine company based on a new concept.  With the support of family, friends, farmers, and a few financiers LFC was born in 2004.  A path was chosen, the load was packed, and they all started hiking up the mountain…

“I love that my job is directed by the seasonal rhythm of life and as a result nothing (no wine) can ever be replicated exactly.”

TCE 034: Kathi Mulder, the Midwife Conscious Entrepreneur

Kathi has been a practicing midwife since 1992 and a Certified Professional Midwife since 1997. She is the founder of Dance of Life Midwifery and has served on the board of the Michigan Midwives Association for many years (six years as president) and is a member of the international organization Midwives Alliance. Kathi has 3 grown daughters all of whom were born into the hands of midwives.

Kathi’s philosophy: Bringing forth new life is an empowering, sacred event in a woman’s life.  She needs to be nurtured, loved, and treated with respect.  A woman must feel comfortable and safe to birth as nature intended in her own time.  Her body holds the wisdom to conceive as well as the wisdom to birth.  The birth of a child is also the birth of a family.  I see the midwifes’ role as one of guardian over this process.

“Being part of many people’s lives during such an important time, and guiding women from maiden to motherhood is such an empowering experience. It fulfills me to get to do this over and over again”
