“YOU HAVE TO HAVE FAITH IN THE RIGHT THINGS FIRST OF ALL, AND THEN YOU JUST NEED TO CHILL OUT.”
If you’re anything like me, you likely think of Giddy Yo products as being “superfood” or health food goodies that are unique, trustworthy, and downright real.
Is it their fabulous upscale – yet still ‘earthy’ and fun – branding, marketing, packaging? Or perhaps the fact that their ingredients are always organic or wild crafted, fairly traded AND of the heirloom variety?
Nope, there has to be something a little “extra” that makes them resonate so powerfully with me – as a mildly manic health nut and longevity enthusiast.
I’M EXCITED TO SHARE THAT I NOW KNOW THE ANSWER. THE GIDDY YO “SECRET SAUCE”.
Allow me to present to you, Bridgitte Longshore, the CEO/Founder/100% owner of this miracle business. I’m going to go right ahead and say it: she’s the inspirational woman behind why this little raw chocolate-making business is quickly becoming a household name.
When we met, Bridgitte was delightfully friendly, open, and transparent – providing clearly honest answers to all questions about her products that I threw her way. While everything she said was interesting and is no doubt worth sharing – I’m not going to regurgitate our interview in what follows.
Instead, I’m going to get straight to the point. The transformational message she presented so plainly, that rung so true I could feel it radiating throughout my entire being. I needed to hear it, and it’s likely you do too – if not today, maybe later in life, or perhaps it’s been a long time coming.
SO, WHAT IS THIS REVOLUTIONARY MESSAGE THAT MAKES BRIDGITTE SUCH A FORCE TO BE RECKONED WITH?
LOVE YOURSELF – WHEREVER YOU’RE AT.
Allow me to explain utilizing a scenario she described…
“OFTEN TIMES WE HAVE PEOPLE THAT COME TO THE TRADE SHOWS WE’RE A PART OF, AND THEY’RE VERY STRESSED.”
“THEY SAY, ‘OKAY, SO I EAT THIS, AND I EAT THIS, ETC. ETC.’”
Rather than play nutritional godsend or investigative reporter, Bridgitte shares some solid advice:
“Then I’m like okay, let’s step back from things for a second. I think what would help you – being as you clearly have a beautiful diet, and that you already eat so clean – is for you to stop stressing, because you’ve taken all of that beautiful food, and you’ve just acidified everything.”
She isn’t afraid to speak the truth: “Stress kills.”
