Why it was selected for “CBNation Architects”: Speaking with Caren, it was so powerful to hear how powerful an impact our passions, gifts, and even organizations can be for ourselves but also other people's lives and building those communities. For Caren, it was Yoga and she used it as a way to tackle community causes. We spoke about vulnerability, authenticity, and staying true to self. Even how losing her father and taking a passion of her father and making an impact on the DMV.

You know, as a CEO or as an entrepreneur, your goal is to kind of be authentic to yourself. You know, if you're stepping out into this space and stepping onto your platform, let's say, and you're not attaching to that authentic version of yourself, you're gonna be able to be seen through pretty quickly, and chances are your community's not gonna support you, right?

Yes. Super excited to have you on and before we jump into the interview I want to read a little bit more about Karen, so you can hear about some of the awesome things that she's doing. Gratitude, service, and the importance of community is what drives and inspires Caren of CP Yoga. Her vision was to create a welcoming space for all people to explore their physical and mental well-being through the power of movement, while intentionally giving back to the community through fundraising and campaign awareness. Over the course of 2021, she and her community raised $8,000 and worked with 11 different organizations serving 11 different causes. She has grown her community and following from three to 90 unique members all motivated to make a difference and impact on the community that surrounds around them. Caren, super excited again to have you on the show and even more excited about the work that you do. Are you ready to speak to the I am CEO community?
