Episode #25: Kati Holland from Pearl Butter

June 28, 2017

There is something truly special when “real-life” friends connect you to “digital” friends. That is precisely how I was introduced to Kati from Pearl Butter and she became the 25th guest on the podcast!

On episode #25 of That's So Maven, we're chatting with Kati Holland from Pearl Butter all about adaptogens, unicorn food and why she chose to launch her product line.

I came across Pearl Butter on Instagram, only to discover we shared a mutual friend a few weeks later (thank you social media…). After making the initial intro, I asked Kati if she wanted to come on the show to share her health journey and the inspiration behind Pearl Butter and I was so happy when she agreed.

What I love about the podcast is that we’re able to connect with people who are at all different phases in their journey. We’ve had guests who have had serious medical conditions that require a more intense approach to health and others who are reminding us that health is no one-size-fits-all. We also have entrepreneurs who have launched their companies from nothing and built them into large businesses, and others, like Pearl Butter, that are just getting started. It’s truly a privilege to be able to explore all sides of the spectrum.

On today’s episode we discuss:

  • Kati’s own health journey and why she launched Pearl Butter
  • The different types of butters and how they can benefit your health
  • What is an adaptogen and how to incorporate them into your diet
  • What it takes to launch a product from idea to conception
  • Struggles she’s had in launching the product
  • Why she chose to focus on such a colorful product and if she worries the “unicorn trend” will pass
  • The health habit she can’t live without

    Following both (already!) with the name (sprouty_fw) and I have already reviewed the podcast! (it was also under the name sprouty_fw). Just also wanted to say thanks to Kati for being so open about her experience. I also still tear up sometimes when I think about my own health trauma so know that you are not alone! As always, Davida, you are killing it and now I want to go on that retreat you went on!!!

    Following both on IG and left a review (Lindsaybelle4). I love your podcasts…mostly because all your guests are so different. A lot of podcasts talk about the same topics every week but yours are so different and informative. You got me hooked on lumanince skincare and now I think I need some pearl butter in my life. Thank you!
