Lia joins Not A Great Whisperer Podcast to talk about starting her own business and her journey along the way. Lia Johnson Kremer is the owner and creator of Zen Lotus Essentials. She started her business in 2020 with the goal of promoting mental, emotional, and physical self-care. Lia is a firm believer in taking time for yourself, especially in today’s stress-filled world. She is always promoting self-care and making sure those around her are practicing self-love as much as possible in whatever form it takes, so long as they are happy, healthy, safe, and it benefits them. She loves making products that benefit and help people. Even if her craft only reaches a small handful of others, it’s very satisfying knowing that she made a difference for someone out there. Lia first started practicing yoga in 2015 with her teacher @ceiaracartony which set her down the path of discovering other methods of self-care and solutions to living a stressful life. In 2020 she took the opportunity to study instruction under yoga teacher @carsonclaycalhoun who used his platform to create a donation-based, all-black yoga school, run by amazing instructors @iamdavinadavidson, @theyogiman83, and @brandoflows. While not doing yoga she keeps up with her bootcamp workout group WTF (Workout, Then Eat). After successfully completing the yoga training course, she decided to launch her business upon receiving a candle making kit by her husband Mike @georgiamachina. Today she’s expanded beyond just candles and now makes bath and skin products as well. Enjoy the real, unedited conversation with Katy and Lia.
