Episode 561 of "Cool Things Entrepreneurs Do" goes to the world of spiritual healing, mind, body, and love alignment. If your soul is calling you to connect more to source, you will want to hear from Susan Kennard.  She had a regular job, but had to give it up to go on a new journey.  Thirty years as a therapist attracted her to help people to clean up their energy field and look closely at their inside world to find more success. 
 
The most important thing to know is that you are your own healer.  You have the power to transform your life and heal from within.  It is a choice and you must be willing to make that choice to embark on a journey of self love and self healing.  Susan has helped thousands of people empower themselves and support their inner healing through different tools and by channelling her Universal Team while holding the space for them. It is a path that all begins WITHIN and with YOU.
 
Susan is known as a  Spiritual Scientist and  understands that people are sceptical, just like she once was, so she tries to bridge that gap with her intuitive skills and scientific knowledge.  As a psychologist, psychotherapist and neuro-psychologist she blends these science skills with her inner work and intuition to help understand the best way people can heal from within.  Over the years, she has used different tools, processes, and activation's to help people to access their self love and let go of the past.  Susan was given the gift of clairvoyance, clairsentience, and clairaudience, which she combines with her knowledge of the spiritual world.  She is a teacher and works with many guides, the ascended masters, angels, and galactic guides.  She also uses light language, sing tones, and sees DNA transform during these sessions.   Her extensive psychology and psychotherapy knowledge works perfectly with the inner child work her guides have developed with her lots of processes to help empower her clients.  Whether you have experienced serious trauma or just want to align to your mission, Susan can help you heal your path.  
 
Her mission and work inspires her and she loves doing it every single day.  Even if you don't believe in spiritual work, you still have a subconscious mind that carries the beliefs and experiences of your ancestors in your thought forms.  She is here to help you release all of that unwanted energy, belief, and experiences that are held within your energy field so that you can heal.  To be fully aligned with your mission.  The most important thing is to reflect love. The more love we reflect, the more amazing our life is and the universe is able to line up for us to heal and receive.  Once you heal, then you become the best version of yourself and transform your life into one of passion and freedom.

David Roger is the CEO and Co-founder of Felix Gray, which pioneered the Blue Light glasses space and is still the leader in the category. The company's mission: empower people to live happier, healthier, more productive lives in today's screen-filled world.
 
David and his co-founder, Chris, come from roles in technology and finance that required long hours in front of screens. They’d leave work with tired, strained eyes, headaches, and often blurry vision. Their friends and coworkers shared similar sentiments—everyone wished for a solution, but nothing existed that they wanted. Nothing married fashion with function.
 
They decided to change that by offering high-quality lenses that filter Blue Light and eliminate glare, set in beautifully handcrafted Italian acetate frames. They embed a proprietary Blue Light filtering technology within the lenses, so they’re both effective and virtually clear. Now, Felix Gray has helped create over 400,000 happy eyes.
 
After graduating from Cornell in 2013, David Roger joined the Venture for America fellowship where he began working at Tony Hsieh's Downtown Project. He spent the majority of his time there on the Operations team assessing the financial and operational feasibility of current and potential projects. He also was a partner at Vegas Tech Fund, which made early, pre-accelerator investments in companies.
