Curiosity killed the cat-but information brought it back!
This season on Sorry, I’m on Break we’ve dedicated two whole episodes to empowering your empathy towards animals!
Be curious and appreciate the creatures we share this planet with. But remember: understanding, loving, and empathizing with the animals we love means not participating in activities, institutions, and/or ecosystems that contribute to their oppression. Take a safari within the comfort of your break time. Dedicate your time and efforts to the humane ways you can support the animals you love.
Tune into our conversations around adopting versus shopping, animal captivity and rescue farms, the health benefits of eating vegan, and entrepreneurialism! Our first “Sorry I’m On Break” guest episodes (S1 E7 and 8) feature Janet Davis Washington, esteemed business owner/operator of Finley & Friends, dog mom, and wife. Janet has been a part of our curated family longer than either of us have been alive. Years ago, Janet took the bold step of dedicating her life to clean, healthy, and sustainable eating and living practices. Today, she serves as an inspiration to entrepreneurs, dog parents, and aspiring vegan eaters all over the world!
