Ep. #7: Wellness & Self-Care On A Budget w/ Jordan Drankoski

Today’s podcast episode is with Jordan Drankoski — a social media marketing pro, healthy living blogger and former professional dancer. Jordan and I have a ton of common:

  • we grew up in the same small town in Westchester (whatup, Somers!)
  • we both attended NYU
  • we were both performers, her dancing, me acting.
  • we both moved to LA post college. Although my LA adventure was short lived.
  • we both attended business school — I actually asked her for advice on taking the GMAT and applying to business school.
  • AND we are both now healthy living bloggers.

Kind of crazy, right?

I so loved recording this episode (okay, this is true of EVERY episode) and chatting with Jordan about living a life of wellness on a budget and navigating a non-linear career path. Whether you’re trying to figure out how to make wellness work for your lifestyle or you’re looking to make a big career transition, this conversation is for you.

Tell me your thoughts:

I can’t believe this is episode seven of the podcast! I’ve been absolutely loving sharing these stories of wellness and would love to hear from YOU.

Do you prefer longer (~1 hour) episodes or short (~30 minute) episodes?

Solo episodes (like episode 6) or interviews like this episode?

Chats with wellness experts (personal trainers, health coaches, etc) or regular peeps living a life of wellness?
