This week, we’re joined by Adam and Vanessa from Bee the Wellness. This couple and their company host a number of annual retreats packed with health, nutrition, mindfulness, and fitness exercises. In our conversation, Adam and Vanessa give us some context for their work and the company, how they balance their time, and what clients can expect from them. We also spend some time discussing how they manage their relationship while spending copious amounts of time together. They offer great insights into how their complimentary styles and strengths work in tandem and how they get around the more difficult areas. Bee the Wellness is offering $100 off off any of their retreats if you use the code “paleomag”, so make sure to have a little look around their website and see if any thing tickles your fancy!
