After losing her father at the tender ago of 25, Randi Zinn moved away from a traditional path in media to instead follow in her “fascinating hippie visionary” entrepreneurial dad’s footsteps. She depicts with honesty and vulnerability the struggles she felt leaping into a world she wasn’t prepared for and how her current success is most clearly understood alongside her several years of “non-linear” progress. After the birth of her son, Randi turned her passion for yoga, hosting events, and spirituality into uncommon and highly successful in person events and retreats. It was not until she was part way through throwing one of these mixers that she realized the business she wanted to create was staring right at her: Beyond Mom, a website, book, and community dedicated to exploring and nourishing our non-mother selves.
