Thoughts From Gail

Life Overhaul: How to Turn #FML to #Blessed

March 15, 2019
SXSW Panel

Talk about a (CAULI)POWERful panel! At the Austin Convention Center this past Sunday, our own Gail Becker joined forces with a group of inspiring women to discuss everything from career paths to food choices, and how it all helps you take your life from #FML to #Blessed. Like Gail, who saw that the food industry wasn’t listening to its customers, these women know what it’s like to take matters into their own hands, cut through the noise and live radically in today’s overstimulated world. Some of the best in the business shared their life hacks for living well, making good choices, and getting comfortable with being uncomfortable. Check out their words of wisdom:




“Surround yourself with smart people who think differently. Success and happiness will follow.”

- Gail Becker, Founder and CEO, CAULIPOWER and Vegolutionary Foods


“Success doesn’t come from having all the answers. Success comes from having the courage.”

- Cindy Eckert, CEO of The Pink Ceiling & Sprout Pharmaceuticals


“You can never underestimate the power of doing good.”

- Agatha Achindu, Founder & VP of Marketing, Yummy Spoonfuls


“Life hack: Keep your space clean. Being messy made me insane. When things are organized, whatever was driving you crazy is gone.”

- Michelle Stafford, Actress & Founder of Skin Nation


“When I was starting RE/SHAPE, my husband was super supportive. He asked, ‘Are you making any money yet?’ and I said, ‘No, but I feel such joy in the depths of my soul.’”

- Ali Landry (our moderator), Wellness Ambassador, TV Host and Actress


This may have been a once-in-a-lifetime experience, but we hope to gather more incredible minds and hearts again next year!
