79 00:03:39,110 --> 00:03:47,510 so I am Kerry Beach I currently live in

80 00:03:43,450 --> 00:03:50,480 Vietnam I travel essentially full-time

81 00:03:47,510 --> 00:03:52,489 I'm back to nomad status and

82 00:03:50,480 --> 00:03:57,110 house-sitting right now so I don't have

83 00:03:52,489 --> 00:03:59,420 an apartment anymore but yeah I was

84 00:03:57,110 --> 00:04:03,410 diagnosed with celiac eight years ago so

85 00:03:59,420 --> 00:04:06,440 just about to the day so over the summer

86 00:04:03,410 --> 00:04:09,440 eight years ago got diagnosed and like

87 00:04:06,440 --> 00:04:12,530 most people was super overwhelmed didn't

88 00:04:09,440 --> 00:04:15,049 know where to look for resources knew a

89 00:04:12,530 --> 00:04:15,470 few people and that's just kind of where

90 00:04:15,049 --> 00:04:17,090 I start

91 00:04:15,470 --> 00:04:20,720 reaching out to them and getting help

92 00:04:17,090 --> 00:04:23,750 and you know found my way like all of us

93 00:04:20,720 --> 00:04:26,030 do but it was a bumpy road and I really

94 00:04:23,750 --> 00:04:29,480 wish I would have had more resources and

95 00:04:26,030 --> 00:04:32,510 so I have always always loved to help

96 00:04:29,480 --> 00:04:35,840 people it's just in my DNA to help and

97 00:04:32,510 --> 00:04:39,830 to be of service and so a few years ago

98 00:04:35,840 --> 00:04:42,680 I really decided that I was gonna go

99 00:04:39,830 --> 00:04:45,430 all-in and figure out a way to help

100 00:04:42,680 --> 00:04:50,540 people in the gluten-free community I

101 00:04:45,430 --> 00:04:54,440 was leaving my job which was super scary

102 00:04:50,540 --> 00:04:58,370 and a big big big leap of faith but I

103 00:04:54,440 --> 00:05:03,110 decided to give the online world a try

104 00:04:58,370 --> 00:05:05,030 and made a website made an Instagram I

105 00:05:03,110 --> 00:05:09,530 had no idea what in the world I was

106 00:05:05,030 --> 00:05:14,030 doing at all but decided to just you

107 00:05:09,530 --> 00:05:16,460 know go all in and form a community and

108 00:05:14,030 --> 00:05:18,980 really show up and try to be helpful and

109 00:05:16,460 --> 00:05:21,110 it's honestly pivoted so many different

110 00:05:18,980 --> 00:05:24,020 times but I'm so so grateful that I've

111 00:05:21,110 --> 00:05:28,190 stuck with it because I have met such

112 00:05:24,020 --> 00:05:30,380 amazing people like you coral through

113 00:05:28,190 --> 00:05:32,270 forming this honestly I mean connections

114 00:05:30,380 --> 00:05:34,400 and the people and the faces behind the

115 00:05:32,270 --> 00:05:36,500 screens is why I show up every day and

116 00:05:34,400 --> 00:05:39,290 why I'm so passionate about helping

117 00:05:36,500 --> 00:05:41,120 people navigate the gluten-free life and

118 00:05:39,290 --> 00:05:43,400 for me it's really turned into the

119 00:05:41,120 --> 00:05:45,380 gluten free travel life since I've been

120 00:05:43,400 --> 00:05:47,900 living and traveling abroad for two

121 00:05:45,380 --> 00:05:50,690 years now I am super passionate about

122 00:05:47,900 --> 00:05:53,720 helping people know that they can do it

123 00:05:50,690 --> 00:05:57,740 too I love it and you do that so well

127 00:06:01,790 --> 00:06:06,290 remember when i first started my celiac

128 00:06:04,010 --> 00:06:08,300 journey and i was going on instagram as

129 00:06:06,290 --> 00:06:10,490 well trying to like know what even to do

130 00:06:08,300 --> 00:06:12,500 and form first of all what i was doing

131 00:06:10,490 --> 00:06:15,080 in my own kitchen let alone you know

132 00:06:12,500 --> 00:06:16,790 what Instagram was doing and I came

133 00:06:15,080 --> 00:06:19,300 across your handle and I'm like okay

134 00:06:16,790 --> 00:06:22,100 that is like the cutest handle ever

135 00:06:19,300 --> 00:06:24,080 well the funniest thing about it is back

136 00:06:22,100 --> 00:06:25,700 when I got diagnosed probably within the

137 00:06:24,080 --> 00:06:27,260 first year I was like okay I'm gonna

138 00:06:25,700 --> 00:06:28,520 make a blog and you know that's when

139 00:06:27,260 --> 00:06:32,180 blogs not super

140 00:06:28,520 --> 00:06:34,099 or whatever and I did and that was my

141 00:06:32,180 --> 00:06:38,030 name back then I think it was like a

142 00:06:34,099 --> 00:06:39,590 blogspot or one of those yeah um but it

143 00:06:38,030 --> 00:06:41,599 was for gluten sake back then like it's

144 00:06:39,590 --> 00:06:43,639 stuck with me of what I needed to just

145 00:06:41,599 --> 00:06:44,090 have my name be how'd you come up with

146 00:06:43,639 --> 00:06:46,610 it

147 00:06:44,090 --> 00:06:48,560 is there a backstory no it just felt

148 00:06:46,610 --> 00:06:53,599 like you know kind of fun and like a pun

149 00:06:48,560 --> 00:06:55,250 kind of thing so yeah good okay but holy

150 00:06:53,599 --> 00:06:56,690 cow me like kind of just like ran right

151 00:06:55,250 --> 00:07:00,169 past the fact that you're in Vietnam

152 00:06:56,690 --> 00:07:02,120 like holy smokes that's incredible how

153 00:07:00,169 --> 00:07:05,780 did you choose like Vietnam to be here

154 00:07:02,120 --> 00:07:08,270 right now that's where you are so I

155 00:07:05,780 --> 00:07:11,060 moved to South Korea two years ago I

156 00:07:08,270 --> 00:07:15,380 took a teaching job and I taught English

157 00:07:11,060 --> 00:07:17,810 for eight months and it was really

158 00:07:15,380 --> 00:07:21,169 wonderful for what it was but it was a

159 00:07:17,810 --> 00:07:23,240 terrible job for me um which was great

160 00:07:21,169 --> 00:07:25,340 because it pushed me to be like okay am

161 00:07:23,240 --> 00:07:28,729 I gonna really do this thing that I want

162 00:07:25,340 --> 00:07:31,039 to do but it's super scary but I'm gonna

163 00:07:28,729 --> 00:07:35,960 do it because I can't teach for one more

164 00:07:31,039 --> 00:07:38,659 day so I took off to travel and had

165 00:07:35,960 --> 00:07:40,789 literally no idea what I was doing

166 00:07:38,659 --> 00:07:44,659 except that I wanted to go to all the

167 00:07:40,789 --> 00:07:46,460 100% gluten-free places so I like set

168 00:07:44,659 --> 00:07:50,030 out with this plan I had a whole map

169 00:07:46,460 --> 00:07:52,060 around the world and I started

170 00:07:50,030 --> 00:07:54,320 interviewing dedicated gluten-free spots

171 00:07:52,060 --> 00:07:57,199 so I started in South Korea because

172 00:07:54,320 --> 00:08:00,169 there's a few in Seoul and then I slowly

173 00:07:57,199 --> 00:08:03,650 like made my way around Asia you know I

174 00:08:00,169 --> 00:08:05,599 went to Tokyo I went to Hong Kong Taipei

175 00:08:03,650 --> 00:08:09,770 like just a lot of different Asian

176 00:08:05,599 --> 00:08:14,599 places and I was traveling really fast

177 00:08:09,770 --> 00:08:18,430 and kind of just got burnt out of going

178 00:08:14,599 --> 00:08:21,740 that quickly and I am such a connection

179 00:08:18,430 --> 00:08:23,990 community person that traveling by

180 00:08:21,740 --> 00:08:26,719 myself and not having a community was

181 00:08:23,990 --> 00:08:28,610 just not working for me

182 00:08:26,719 --> 00:08:30,889 so as much as I wanted to like keep

183 00:08:28,610 --> 00:08:33,770 traveling and keep interviewing places I

184 00:08:30,889 --> 00:08:36,409 found friends in a community in Vietnam

185 00:08:33,770 --> 00:08:37,880 and just fell in love and so I knew I

186 00:08:36,409 --> 00:08:41,360 needed to at least have you know

187 00:08:37,880 --> 00:08:42,110 somewhat of a base here for now yes okay

188 00:08:41,360 --> 00:08:44,140 that like Bri

189 00:08:42,110 --> 00:08:46,670 like thousands of questions in my mind

190 00:08:44,140 --> 00:08:49,130 and I feel like I even know you and I'm

191 00:08:46,670 --> 00:08:51,230 like wow there's so much there's so much

192 00:08:49,130 --> 00:08:53,660 depth to your journey in your story and

193 00:08:51,230 --> 00:08:57,440 I love that so hey first of all do you

194 00:08:53,660 --> 00:08:59,750 speak any other languages no not I mean

195 00:08:57,440 --> 00:09:02,390 I speak enough to get by I always learn

196 00:08:59,750 --> 00:09:04,490 I mean this is one of my travel tips for

197 00:09:02,390 --> 00:09:07,459 people right like always learn at least

198 00:09:04,490 --> 00:09:12,019 hello and thank you at the bare minimum

199 00:09:07,459 --> 00:09:16,579 you need or just download your gluten

200 00:09:12,019 --> 00:09:18,320 free a translation card yes

201 00:09:16,579 --> 00:09:20,540 but it's important you know I think

202 00:09:18,320 --> 00:09:23,120 culturally just to be respectful and not

203 00:09:20,540 --> 00:09:25,190 to be that American or that Westerner

204 00:09:23,120 --> 00:09:28,760 that just assumes everyone speaks

205 00:09:25,190 --> 00:09:31,899 English granted people do love to

206 00:09:28,760 --> 00:09:34,519 practice their English so they will try

207 00:09:31,899 --> 00:09:38,540 but it's just you know respectful to

208 00:09:34,519 --> 00:09:40,390 learn a word or two so I speak words in

209 00:09:38,540 --> 00:09:41,810 different languages but nothing fluently

210 00:09:40,390 --> 00:09:43,940 okay good

211 00:09:41,810 --> 00:09:47,510 so maybe explain to the users who

212 00:09:43,940 --> 00:09:53,180 explain to our listeners today what the

213 00:09:47,510 --> 00:09:57,130 app is and what it does yeah so it is

214 00:09:53,180 --> 00:10:00,890 called dedicated gluten-free it is a

215 00:09:57,130 --> 00:10:02,540 locator app for all of the 100%

216 00:10:00,890 --> 00:10:05,720 gluten-free bakeries restaurants

217 00:10:02,540 --> 00:10:08,089 breweries food trucks you name it any

218 00:10:05,720 --> 00:10:08,630 dedicated gluten-free facility around

219 00:10:08,089 --> 00:10:11,920 the world

221 00:10:11,920 --> 00:10:20,180 so it allows you to find all of the

222 00:10:15,829 --> 00:10:22,850 places so it pulls up the locations

223 00:10:20,180 --> 00:10:25,610 closest to you within the app when you

224 00:10:22,850 --> 00:10:30,949 use it you can also search by location

225 00:10:25,610 --> 00:10:33,290 you can search by name and it shows you

226 00:10:30,949 --> 00:10:36,529 photos of some of the locations it shows

227 00:10:33,290 --> 00:10:38,329 you videos of some of the locations but

228 00:10:36,529 --> 00:10:42,529 right now the primary purpose is to be a

229 00:10:38,329 --> 00:10:44,420 locator of all the spots and what the

230 00:10:42,529 --> 00:10:46,390 feature that's hopefully gonna be out

231 00:10:44,420 --> 00:10:48,620 really really soon that people have

232 00:10:46,390 --> 00:10:50,540 already commented on which I'm like yeah

233 00:10:48,620 --> 00:10:52,010 this is it's so exciting to hear that

234 00:10:50,540 --> 00:10:54,410 this is what people want because it's

235 00:10:52,010 --> 00:10:56,030 almost finished but you'll be able to

236 00:10:54,410 --> 00:10:58,130 see it on a larger

237 00:10:56,030 --> 00:10:59,690 so right now you can see them in you

238 00:10:58,130 --> 00:11:01,430 know the location closest to you but

239 00:10:59,690 --> 00:11:04,280 you'll be able to see on a map like oh

240 00:11:01,430 --> 00:11:06,740 hey there's ten spots right here on a

241 00:11:04,280 --> 00:11:08,750 map here I'm so glad you said that

242 00:11:06,740 --> 00:11:10,820 because I was gonna wait til after our

243 00:11:08,750 --> 00:11:12,470 little interview and be like hey this is

244 00:11:10,820 --> 00:11:17,390 the one thing that I think they would

245 00:11:12,470 --> 00:11:20,720 really embrace and honestly that was

246 00:11:17,390 --> 00:11:22,370 what was making me not release it as

247 00:11:20,720 --> 00:11:23,810 quickly cuz I was like oh do I want to

248 00:11:22,370 --> 00:11:26,690 wait till this is done and then I was

249 00:11:23,810 --> 00:11:30,790 like no I'm gonna get it out there so

250 00:11:26,690 --> 00:11:33,170 that is coming very soon and then ID

251 00:11:30,790 --> 00:11:35,780 thank you I'm really excited about that

252 00:11:33,170 --> 00:11:38,000 and so right now you can you know you

253 00:11:35,780 --> 00:11:40,610 can click through to all of the things

254 00:11:38,000 --> 00:11:42,950 on a restaurant so you can go directly

255 00:11:40,610 --> 00:11:44,360 to their website from the app you can go

256 00:11:42,950 --> 00:11:46,910 to a location that'll take you to a

257 00:11:44,360 --> 00:11:50,030 Google map you can call the restaurant

258 00:11:46,910 --> 00:11:53,090 directly from the app and if they have

259 00:11:50,030 --> 00:11:55,520 an email address you can email them so

260 00:11:53,090 --> 00:11:56,900 it's it's pretty intuitive from everyone

261 00:11:55,520 --> 00:12:00,370 I've talked to you know it's just got

262 00:11:56,900 --> 00:12:04,580 little icons you click directly on them

263 00:12:00,370 --> 00:12:08,390 but the other feature that I really want

264 00:12:04,580 --> 00:12:11,089 to wrap my head around how to do is to

265 00:12:08,390 --> 00:12:13,490 allow it to be a connection device so I

266 00:12:11,089 --> 00:12:15,350 want it to be a way that you can connect

267 00:12:13,490 --> 00:12:19,820 with other gluten-free eaters and

268 00:12:15,350 --> 00:12:23,270 travelers in your area I love that yes

269 00:12:19,820 --> 00:12:26,150 so not or a forum or something along

270 00:12:23,270 --> 00:12:29,030 those lines yes or a way that you can

271 00:12:26,150 --> 00:12:31,310 say like hey I'm traveling you know

272 00:12:29,030 --> 00:12:34,490 these dates do you want to meet up like

273 00:12:31,310 --> 00:12:37,190 kind of like a meetup type situation and

274 00:12:34,490 --> 00:12:39,710 then you can actually either connect in

275 00:12:37,190 --> 00:12:41,540 person or talk but then it would take it

276 00:12:39,710 --> 00:12:44,420 off the app but it would connect you

277 00:12:41,540 --> 00:12:46,520 yeah so I can't quite wrap my head

278 00:12:44,420 --> 00:12:48,470 around how that's going to be yet but

279 00:12:46,520 --> 00:12:50,450 that's my vision of really what I want

280 00:12:48,470 --> 00:12:51,610 to do because connections just the core

281 00:12:50,450 --> 00:12:54,320 of Who I am

282 00:12:51,610 --> 00:12:56,960 that is awesome I think you're gonna

283 00:12:54,320 --> 00:13:00,020 make it happen you just you've already

284 00:12:56,960 --> 00:13:02,120 proven that you know it's funny I was

285 00:13:00,020 --> 00:13:05,540 gonna go to Georgia this coming weekend

286 00:13:02,120 --> 00:13:06,700 and I and I am then I'm not wow I'm

287 00:13:05,540 --> 00:13:09,130 fumbling here but I

288 00:13:06,700 --> 00:13:10,660 not being able to go but when I was

289 00:13:09,130 --> 00:13:13,270 gonna go there I always get a message

290 00:13:10,660 --> 00:13:15,430 you know all my instagramers and be like

291 00:13:13,270 --> 00:13:17,620 hey everyone I'm going to Georgia who

292 00:13:15,430 --> 00:13:20,770 lives there and I wanted to do that but

293 00:13:17,620 --> 00:13:22,630 how cool like yes include it in the app

294 00:13:20,770 --> 00:13:24,160 and then we have that resource because

295 00:13:22,630 --> 00:13:25,720 you do especially when you're traveling

296 00:13:24,160 --> 00:13:27,670 out and you feel so isolated you're like

297 00:13:25,720 --> 00:13:29,650 I don't know anyone I don't you know now

298 00:13:27,670 --> 00:13:34,320 we know safe places but it's like now on

299 00:13:29,650 --> 00:13:37,480 those safe places and people I mean

300 00:13:34,320 --> 00:13:39,250 honestly I and I think it's becoming so

301 00:13:37,480 --> 00:13:42,370 much more normalized right in the last

302 00:13:39,250 --> 00:13:44,170 few years that I don't think as many

303 00:13:42,370 --> 00:13:47,170 people have the fears of like meeting

304 00:13:44,170 --> 00:13:49,390 people off of Instagram or online right

305 00:13:47,170 --> 00:13:51,610 that we used to have yeah but if you

306 00:13:49,390 --> 00:13:53,440 still have those fears I would say like

307 00:13:51,610 --> 00:13:55,360 really push through those because I have

308 00:13:53,440 --> 00:13:56,890 met some of the most incredible people

309 00:13:55,360 --> 00:13:58,990 because of the power of the Internet

310 00:13:56,890 --> 00:14:03,160 truly yeah

311 00:13:58,990 --> 00:14:04,330 it's true yeah I I can testify to that

312 00:14:03,160 --> 00:14:07,840 one for sure

313 00:14:04,330 --> 00:14:09,820 and our relationship is that so yeah

314 00:14:07,840 --> 00:14:12,370 exactly I wouldn't have met you if it

315 00:14:09,820 --> 00:14:15,010 weren't for Instagram which I'm so

316 00:14:12,370 --> 00:14:17,230 grateful I know I know you all the way

317 00:14:15,010 --> 00:14:21,010 in Vietnam like my friends with me from

318 00:14:17,230 --> 00:14:25,030 a little son California you know so much

319 00:14:21,010 --> 00:14:26,920 yay and okay I live in California and I

320 00:14:25,030 --> 00:14:29,230 don't even know the hundred percent

321 00:14:26,920 --> 00:14:32,350 gluten free dedicated facilities and

322 00:14:29,230 --> 00:14:34,720 restaurants in my in my like hometown

324 00:14:34,720 --> 00:14:38,050 Southern California I didn't even know

325 00:14:36,430 --> 00:14:39,430 so I downloaded your app and I'm looking

326 00:14:38,050 --> 00:14:41,410 at it and I'm like holy cow there's

327 00:14:39,430 --> 00:14:43,720 options like I didn't even know I felt

328 00:14:41,410 --> 00:14:45,970 like we were so lost so how did you

329 00:14:43,720 --> 00:14:48,250 maneuver through it though like all

330 00:14:45,970 --> 00:14:50,400 these foreign countries and find a

331 00:14:48,250 --> 00:14:56,250 hundred percent dedicated gluten-free

332 00:14:50,400 --> 00:15:01,450 restaurants um it's been a lot of just

333 00:14:56,250 --> 00:15:02,650 research and searching and yeah somebody

334 00:15:01,450 --> 00:15:04,870 asked me the other day like how many

335 00:15:02,650 --> 00:15:06,520 hours has this taken you and I said yeah

336 00:15:04,870 --> 00:15:11,830 let's not talk about that like we don't

337 00:15:06,520 --> 00:15:13,780 need to add up a number yeah you know

338 00:15:11,830 --> 00:15:15,280 it's been a really big combination of

339 00:15:13,780 --> 00:15:17,650 just like looking in the right places

340 00:15:15,280 --> 00:15:19,630 and then you know I kind of joked with

341 00:15:17,650 --> 00:15:20,610 someone this week that you know this

342 00:15:19,630 --> 00:15:24,300 project for me

343 00:15:20,610 --> 00:15:26,820 back in 2017 and I thought I would put

344 00:15:24,300 --> 00:15:28,800 together a list of 300 places that was

345 00:15:26,820 --> 00:15:30,450 my goal when I started the process like

346 00:15:28,800 --> 00:15:33,390 okay I'm gonna put together a directory

347 00:15:30,450 --> 00:15:36,029 of 300 places but I kept finding more

348 00:15:33,390 --> 00:15:38,519 and more and more and I was like I can't

349 00:15:36,029 --> 00:15:41,579 quit I can't quit there's more and so

350 00:15:38,519 --> 00:15:44,070 new places just you know keep opening

356 00:15:54,180 --> 00:15:59,100 people see like hey there's a need for

357 00:15:56,399 --> 00:16:00,899 this hey I want to do this I want to

360 00:16:02,730 --> 00:16:07,440 and my favorite thing like you just said

361 00:16:04,950 --> 00:16:10,260 I've received so many messages already

362 00:16:07,440 --> 00:16:13,380 and screenshots and people saying oh my

363 00:16:10,260 --> 00:16:21,660 gosh this place is in my city and I had

364 00:16:13,380 --> 00:16:26,640 no idea I know you're like a magician

365 00:16:21,660 --> 00:16:29,490 over there it's so fun well I love it

366 00:16:26,640 --> 00:16:31,740 okay so you had so you started this

367 00:16:29,490 --> 00:16:35,730 journey of you just wanted to find a

368 00:16:31,740 --> 00:16:38,940 list of 300 worldwide restaurants that

369 00:16:35,730 --> 00:16:42,480 are 1% dedicated gluten-free but then

370 00:16:38,940 --> 00:16:47,329 it's like blown up from there yeah you

371 00:16:42,480 --> 00:16:50,250 have so many oh my gosh it's honestly

372 00:16:47,329 --> 00:16:53,640 the largest project I've ever cared

373 00:16:50,250 --> 00:16:56,579 about in my life and that's what keeps

374 00:16:53,640 --> 00:16:59,070 me doing it every day and excited about

375 00:16:56,579 --> 00:17:00,899 doing it because it started out as me

376 00:16:59,070 --> 00:17:04,679 just kind of seeing a gap in the market

377 00:17:00,899 --> 00:17:07,890 of there was no good one-stop shop for

378 00:17:04,679 --> 00:17:10,260 all the dedicated gluten-free places and

379 00:17:07,890 --> 00:17:13,230 as I was you know getting to know people

380 00:17:10,260 --> 00:17:15,150 and building community people were

381 00:17:13,230 --> 00:17:17,100 saying like I have celiac I don't want

382 00:17:15,150 --> 00:17:19,230 to eat out and you know I'm scared of

383 00:17:17,100 --> 00:17:21,089 cross-contamination and you know that's

384 00:17:19,230 --> 00:17:24,240 where your health is really your choice

385 00:17:21,089 --> 00:17:27,689 like of how you eat out or don't eat out

386 00:17:24,240 --> 00:17:29,790 and so you know these places are safe

387 00:17:27,689 --> 00:17:31,679 though for people and so I was like huh

388 00:17:29,790 --> 00:17:34,440 isn't this interesting there's no good

389 00:17:31,679 --> 00:17:35,730 place to find them what if I put that

390 00:17:34,440 --> 00:17:37,799 together you know I mean I feel like

391 00:17:35,730 --> 00:17:39,299 that's just as an entrepreneur that's

392 00:17:37,799 --> 00:17:42,029 what you have to do you have to think

393 00:17:39,299 --> 00:17:44,399 okay where is something that I can

394 00:17:42,029 --> 00:17:48,570 create how can I help people and solve

395 00:17:44,399 --> 00:17:50,610 problems yeah so that was a need that I

396 00:17:48,570 --> 00:17:55,320 saw the more people I talked to you and

397 00:17:50,610 --> 00:17:59,370 so it just has evolved into finding more

398 00:17:55,320 --> 00:18:01,710 places and then my huge passion as well

399 00:17:59,370 --> 00:18:05,129 is getting to know the people that own

400 00:18:01,710 --> 00:18:07,440 the restaurants and interviewing them

401 00:18:05,129 --> 00:18:09,330 and getting to know their why like how

402 00:18:07,440 --> 00:18:11,759 do they show up every day and serve us

403 00:18:09,330 --> 00:18:14,009 you know how do they push through their

404 00:18:11,759 --> 00:18:17,850 fears of like oh my gosh this is so

405 00:18:14,009 --> 00:18:20,370 scary and hard to start a restaurant to

406 00:18:17,850 --> 00:18:21,000 start a bakery because it's not easy for

407 00:18:20,370 --> 00:18:24,509 them either

408 00:18:21,000 --> 00:18:27,480 right right there's so many loopholes

409 00:18:24,509 --> 00:18:29,639 and so many things they need to be

410 00:18:27,480 --> 00:18:31,200 concerned about and worried about but

411 00:18:29,639 --> 00:18:32,909 then the miracle and the blessing of it

412 00:18:31,200 --> 00:18:36,059 all is like so much greater so it's like

413 00:18:32,909 --> 00:18:39,179 yes and cheering them on is really our

414 00:18:36,059 --> 00:18:41,100 duty right we support them and rave they

415 00:18:39,179 --> 00:18:43,289 rave about them give them five star

416 00:18:41,100 --> 00:18:45,330 ratings everywhere that they Yelp or

417 00:18:43,289 --> 00:18:47,340 wherever just so that their name is more

418 00:18:45,330 --> 00:18:50,059 out there because obviously I didn't

419 00:18:47,340 --> 00:18:53,220 even know I don't have any dedicated

420 00:18:50,059 --> 00:18:56,720 restaurants and like near near me but

421 00:18:53,220 --> 00:19:03,200 like an hour out I have now I have

422 00:18:56,720 --> 00:19:06,149 options and I might just go somewhere

423 00:19:03,200 --> 00:19:08,039 but that's just so exciting and so we

424 00:19:06,149 --> 00:19:10,440 need to be cheering them on and really

425 00:19:08,039 --> 00:19:14,039 letting others know about them I think

426 00:19:10,440 --> 00:19:16,049 that that's so key yes exactly because

427 00:19:14,039 --> 00:19:17,850 you know that's what I've been telling

428 00:19:16,049 --> 00:19:19,830 people like the more reviews you can

429 00:19:17,850 --> 00:19:22,950 leave for things the more people can

430 00:19:19,830 --> 00:19:25,110 find it like in the world of algorithms

431 00:19:22,950 --> 00:19:26,940 and how things work that's just the name

432 00:19:25,110 --> 00:19:28,620 of the game right now so spread the word

433 00:19:26,940 --> 00:19:31,710 and then also just word-of-mouth

434 00:19:28,620 --> 00:19:33,690 marketing is still the way to go

435 00:19:31,710 --> 00:19:36,629 you know people talking and recommending

436 00:19:33,690 --> 00:19:40,529 things absolutely that'll never go away

437 00:19:36,629 --> 00:19:42,840 because you trust a voice like you trust

438 00:19:40,529 --> 00:19:44,190 someone that's living your same life

439 00:19:42,840 --> 00:19:45,960 that's what they're you know the same

440 00:19:44,190 --> 00:19:47,639 struggles that you're having you trust

441 00:19:45,960 --> 00:19:48,240 that person because you're like okay

442 00:19:47,639 --> 00:19:49,890 this is my

443 00:19:48,240 --> 00:19:51,780 pipeline right where each other is like

444 00:19:49,890 --> 00:19:53,340 there's just a bond if someone says

445 00:19:51,780 --> 00:19:57,360 they're gluten-free I'm like oh we ready

446 00:19:53,340 --> 00:19:58,440 friends yes grocery aisle any like bump

447 00:19:57,360 --> 00:20:03,240 into someone like looking all the

448 00:19:58,440 --> 00:20:05,610 gluten-free stuff you're like hey what's

449 00:20:03,240 --> 00:20:07,350 your brand I'm always like how long if

450 00:20:05,610 --> 00:20:09,590 you think lint-free are you celiac or

451 00:20:07,350 --> 00:20:13,080 you can taller and like I always love

452 00:20:09,590 --> 00:20:16,170 finding out their reasoning why and so

453 00:20:13,080 --> 00:20:18,210 yeah that's awesome yes it just

454 00:20:16,170 --> 00:20:20,430 automatically bonds you because so much

455 00:20:18,210 --> 00:20:23,160 of our life revolves around food and

456 00:20:20,430 --> 00:20:25,920 socially you know that's what we do

457 00:20:23,160 --> 00:20:28,740 yes I know you know it's funny I was

458 00:20:25,920 --> 00:20:30,300 doing um I do the 21 day fix workouts

459 00:20:28,740 --> 00:20:33,840 with autumn Calabrese yeah I'm giving

460 00:20:30,300 --> 00:20:35,670 her a shout out but she was making a

461 00:20:33,840 --> 00:20:37,890 really good point during one of the

462 00:20:35,670 --> 00:20:39,840 workouts as we were like try no oh you

463 00:20:37,890 --> 00:20:42,150 know I was like I can't I can't talk for

464 00:20:39,840 --> 00:20:43,860 anything but she she can just do it all

465 00:20:42,150 --> 00:20:45,720 but anyway so she was talking while we

466 00:20:43,860 --> 00:20:49,530 working out and she was saying how as a

467 00:20:45,720 --> 00:20:54,570 society everything every event that we

468 00:20:49,530 --> 00:20:56,280 do it all is all-around food versus

469 00:20:54,570 --> 00:20:58,440 around the room main reason why we're

470 00:20:56,280 --> 00:21:01,290 getting together is for the people for

471 00:20:58,440 --> 00:21:03,960 the surroundings for the life that we

472 00:21:01,290 --> 00:21:06,510 have and so in it's not just for food

473 00:21:03,960 --> 00:21:08,670 and I think Society has kind of changed

474 00:21:06,510 --> 00:21:10,280 us into that which I think food is a

475 00:21:08,670 --> 00:21:12,450 great way to come together I do

476 00:21:10,280 --> 00:21:15,150 especially when it's a food then I'm

477 00:21:12,450 --> 00:21:16,910 really but I just think like you know

478 00:21:15,150 --> 00:21:20,400 what that's really true we forget about

479 00:21:16,910 --> 00:21:21,720 the actual connection sometimes we'll go

480 00:21:20,400 --> 00:21:23,370 to an event and the whole time we're

481 00:21:21,720 --> 00:21:24,330 eating or the person cooking is cooking

482 00:21:23,370 --> 00:21:26,130 the whole time they don't even say hi to

483 00:21:24,330 --> 00:21:27,630 anyone yeah you're like wait a minute

484 00:21:26,130 --> 00:21:29,790 the whole reason why we're all here is

485 00:21:27,630 --> 00:21:31,110 to get together and to really have those

486 00:21:29,790 --> 00:21:32,970 bonds and so I thought that wasn't

487 00:21:31,110 --> 00:21:41,850 interesting I'm like oh that is so

488 00:21:32,970 --> 00:21:43,770 applicable to our world this podcast is

515 00:22:47,620 --> 00:22:51,610 and then you're thinking okay I want to

516 00:22:49,870 --> 00:22:53,169 put it into an app what did you do you

517 00:22:51,610 --> 00:22:57,040 just started researching how to make an

518 00:22:53,169 --> 00:22:59,740 app yeah so basically I pulled the

519 00:22:57,040 --> 00:23:01,419 trigger really quickly I've been talking

520 00:22:59,740 --> 00:23:03,070 about it the funny thing I had a friend

521 00:23:01,419 --> 00:23:06,940 visit me I was trying to think of what

522 00:23:03,070 --> 00:23:09,970 it was maybe in February and that's when

523 00:23:06,940 --> 00:23:12,940 I was really debating do I do an app do

524 00:23:09,970 --> 00:23:16,710 I not you know pros and cons of the

525 00:23:12,940 --> 00:23:19,990 investment with it and funding it

526 00:23:16,710 --> 00:23:24,370 because you know like it was me funding

527 00:23:19,990 --> 00:23:26,380 it and I decided oh no I'm not gonna do

528 00:23:24,370 --> 00:23:29,890 it I'm not gonna do it but then it just

529 00:23:26,380 --> 00:23:33,400 kept coming up and honestly you know for

530 00:23:29,890 --> 00:23:36,070 the month of May I did 25 interviews and

531 00:23:33,400 --> 00:23:37,990 you and I talked about it I talked about

532 00:23:36,070 --> 00:23:39,910 it on a couple other interviews and I

533 00:23:37,990 --> 00:23:43,120 just kept thinking you know this is the

534 00:23:39,910 --> 00:23:44,830 thing that people need because I have

535 00:23:43,120 --> 00:23:48,610 ebooks and some other great resources

536 00:23:44,830 --> 00:23:50,230 but you know it's so much easier to have

537 00:23:48,610 --> 00:23:52,480 an app on your phone in this day and age

538 00:23:50,230 --> 00:23:56,710 so it's with you at all times and it can

539 00:23:52,480 --> 00:23:59,800 be updated in real time and so I finally

540 00:23:56,710 --> 00:24:02,050 thought you know what I do this like the

541 00:23:59,800 --> 00:24:04,000 community needs this people need this I

542 00:24:02,050 --> 00:24:08,379 will do it and

543 00:24:04,000 --> 00:24:10,899 I did research yeah I'm just decided to

544 00:24:08,379 --> 00:24:12,519 trust my gut and go with it and get it

545 00:24:10,899 --> 00:24:14,519 done I honestly was like all right I

546 00:24:12,519 --> 00:24:20,740 want this done in a month I wanted out

547 00:24:14,519 --> 00:24:23,919 you're incredible it's been such a

548 00:24:20,740 --> 00:24:26,169 lesson and is still a lesson in take the

549 00:24:23,919 --> 00:24:28,690 imperfect action over the perfect action

550 00:24:26,169 --> 00:24:30,639 like you know even now there's still a

551 00:24:28,690 --> 00:24:32,500 few things we're tweaking and working

552 00:24:30,639 --> 00:24:35,289 out and I know it's only gonna improve a

553 00:24:32,500 --> 00:24:37,870 time but I had to really really let go

554 00:24:35,289 --> 00:24:40,179 of my perfectionist tendencies and to

555 00:24:37,870 --> 00:24:43,600 just say you know what I want this out

556 00:24:40,179 --> 00:24:46,350 in the world and it will improve as

557 00:24:43,600 --> 00:24:48,789 people use it and they send feedback

558 00:24:46,350 --> 00:24:50,440 absolutely that's so important because I

559 00:24:48,789 --> 00:24:51,909 think sometimes we worry about that

560 00:24:50,440 --> 00:24:54,610 perfectionism so much they don't

561 00:24:51,909 --> 00:24:56,379 nothing's ever done and so understanding

562 00:24:54,610 --> 00:24:58,990 that you can have a B on something and

563 00:24:56,379 --> 00:25:01,059 not get in a crowd and then improve it

564 00:24:58,990 --> 00:25:03,100 to that a and how exciting for us all to

565 00:25:01,059 --> 00:25:05,950 be on that journey with with you I think

566 00:25:03,100 --> 00:25:07,990 I could speak for anybody any user we're

567 00:25:05,950 --> 00:25:09,639 just grateful for it you know the little

568 00:25:07,990 --> 00:25:11,889 tweaks are the little things like we're

569 00:25:09,639 --> 00:25:13,899 just grateful that we have a resource

570 00:25:11,889 --> 00:25:16,450 and so as it improves we'll even be more

571 00:25:13,899 --> 00:25:18,129 excited for you along with you okay so

572 00:25:16,450 --> 00:25:20,740 what does your future look like are you

573 00:25:18,129 --> 00:25:23,019 gonna stay in Vietnam or what are your

574 00:25:20,740 --> 00:25:26,169 thoughts so that's what I'm trying to

575 00:25:23,019 --> 00:25:32,669 figure out actually I just went to Bali

576 00:25:26,169 --> 00:25:36,580 and what they say is true it's magical

577 00:25:32,669 --> 00:25:39,340 so that you make stop potentially I

578 00:25:36,580 --> 00:25:41,379 really I'm such a beach person like

579 00:25:39,340 --> 00:25:45,429 Colorado's home for me and I love

580 00:25:41,379 --> 00:25:49,779 Colorado but I have such a heart for the

581 00:25:45,429 --> 00:25:51,820 beach and warm weather so I don't know

582 00:25:49,779 --> 00:25:55,000 I'm trying to figure out my honestly my

583 00:25:51,820 --> 00:25:57,639 ideal life I really feel like I live my

584 00:25:55,000 --> 00:26:00,700 ideal life already but my even more

585 00:25:57,639 --> 00:26:05,669 ideal life includes living in two places

586 00:26:00,700 --> 00:26:07,509 so having kind of two different homes

587 00:26:05,669 --> 00:26:09,970 because I'm such a community-based

588 00:26:07,509 --> 00:26:13,149 person and I travel full-time is awesome

589 00:26:09,970 --> 00:26:15,340 but you know a week here a month there

590 00:26:13,149 --> 00:26:17,440 you can't really form as deep of

591 00:26:15,340 --> 00:26:19,539 connections

592 00:26:17,440 --> 00:26:21,669 as I would like to have in my life so

593 00:26:19,539 --> 00:26:25,120 the idea of you know living somewhere

594 00:26:21,669 --> 00:26:26,679 three to six months is more my speed so

595 00:26:25,120 --> 00:26:28,629 you know what's interesting is even this

596 00:26:26,679 --> 00:26:33,549 summer we we've just done little trips

597 00:26:28,629 --> 00:26:35,350 here in little trucks there and I I get

598 00:26:33,549 --> 00:26:37,360 this like I think well because I have

599 00:26:35,350 --> 00:26:39,610 four kids - I think that's a big stress

600 00:26:37,360 --> 00:26:41,259 factor in my world as far as like

601 00:26:39,610 --> 00:26:43,899 already just traveling but then throwing

602 00:26:41,259 --> 00:26:46,750 the gluten free spin on it and so like I

603 00:26:43,899 --> 00:26:48,070 just crave being home and I'm like I

604 00:26:46,750 --> 00:26:50,110 thought I would want to be a world

605 00:26:48,070 --> 00:26:52,570 traveler but I guess right now is not

606 00:26:50,110 --> 00:26:56,049 the time that I will I can live

607 00:26:52,570 --> 00:26:58,899 vicariously through you Carrie yes well

610 00:27:01,960 --> 00:27:07,059 and that's also okay too you know like

611 00:27:04,059 --> 00:27:09,970 you get to try something on and say yeah

612 00:27:07,059 --> 00:27:12,309 that's not for me and do something else

613 00:27:09,970 --> 00:27:15,549 that's okay yeah well but that's

623 00:27:38,429 --> 00:27:45,360 would be don't let the fear hold you

624 00:27:41,649 --> 00:27:47,350 back like the fear is there I get it

625 00:27:45,360 --> 00:27:49,899 especially if you're newly diagnosed

626 00:27:47,350 --> 00:27:52,840 it's really overwhelming you want to

627 00:27:49,899 --> 00:27:55,629 stay safe you want to stay home whatever

628 00:27:52,840 --> 00:27:57,340 those fears are but if you can just push

629 00:27:55,629 --> 00:28:01,809 through that fear to know that it's

630 00:27:57,340 --> 00:28:04,750 possible go travel and do it so with

634 00:28:09,850 --> 00:28:15,610 true you just have to be whether that's

635 00:28:12,460 --> 00:28:17,320 you're going across town for the day and

747 00:33:07,720 --> 00:33:11,529 to end us off today I want to hear a

748 00:33:09,700 --> 00:33:12,970 take away like what is something that

749 00:33:11,529 --> 00:33:15,749 you want to just shout from the rooftops

750 00:33:12,970 --> 00:33:21,340 that everyone can remember you by today

751 00:33:15,749 --> 00:33:25,989 if I have to pick one I would say trust

752 00:33:21,340 --> 00:33:28,869 your intuition and know that you are

753 00:33:25,989 --> 00:33:29,499 capable of so much more than you even

754 00:33:28,869 --> 00:33:32,979 know

755 00:33:29,499 --> 00:33:36,999 so take that first step with whatever

756 00:33:32,979 --> 00:33:38,859 you are so passionate about and just

757 00:33:36,999 --> 00:33:41,919 keep going trust that you will figure it

758 00:33:38,859 --> 00:33:45,129 out trust that you can do something so

759 00:33:41,919 --> 00:33:47,710 much bigger like honestly I am so

760 00:33:45,129 --> 00:33:49,330 grateful for all the encouragement along

761 00:33:47,710 --> 00:33:51,429 the way on the days I wanted to quit

762 00:33:49,330 --> 00:33:53,200 that I didn't quit and that I kept going

763 00:33:51,429 --> 00:33:56,049 that I kept listening to myself and

764 00:33:53,200 --> 00:33:58,450 saying yes I can do this I can do this I

765 00:33:56,049 --> 00:34:01,269 can turn this into something because if

766 00:33:58,450 --> 00:34:05,200 more people were willing to listen to

767 00:34:01,269 --> 00:34:07,139 themselves and to drown out fear I think

768 00:34:05,200 --> 00:34:10,329 we would just have such a better

769 00:34:07,139 --> 00:34:14,679 community and world where people were

770 00:34:10,329 --> 00:34:17,409 excited to wake up versus so negative

771 00:34:14,679 --> 00:34:20,139 and unsure of themselves like just

772 00:34:17,409 --> 00:34:22,690 figure out how to drown out those

773 00:34:20,139 --> 00:34:24,280 negative voices in your life and keep

774 00:34:22,690 --> 00:34:26,649 going because we need you we need you

775 00:34:24,280 --> 00:34:27,599 empowered and doing amazing things in

776 00:34:26,649 --> 00:34:30,369 this world

777 00:34:27,599 --> 00:34:33,069 well Kerry you're a perfect example of

778 00:34:30,369 --> 00:34:38,859 that so thank you for your example and
