This interview is at “ohhhhh doctahhhhh” status (the highest status possible on the show, hah).

My good friend Kirstin Carey is successful at everything she does (and has started 8 successful businesses), but what I think is even more impressive is her ability to transition into something new. For example, she recently transitioned from a very successful speaking/consulting/training business to opening a gluten-free restaurant, Nourish, in Arizona.

In this conversation, Kirsten and I discuss a massive amount of topics – from following passion/excitement to making massive transitions (and knowing when to quit). Enjoy!

About Today’s Guest, Kirstin Carey:

Kirstin CareyKirstin Carey loves to enlighten people on the joys of food, health, and nutrition.

She is an entrepreneur with a passion for food, eating, and thoroughly enjoying herself. Her fascination with how the brain and the body work was the catalyst to getting Kirstin on a path to learning everything she could on true nutrition and how food impacts the body, mind, and spirit. Kirstin discovered she has an allergy to wheat and an aversion to dairy and began making changes to her diet and her approach to food.

This cheesesteak eating, native Philadelphian used to hide her veggies in her napkin and hated anything that came from the sea. Now friends and family accuse her of being a “health foodie!”

In other words, she loves to eat fabulous food, but she doesn’t want to exchange enjoyable eating for nutrition! She wants them both!

With 15 years experience as a business owner, real estate investor, consultant, and professional speaker, Kirstin earned the prestigious Certified Speaking Professional (CSP) designation held by only 10% of people in the International Federation of Professional Speakers. She also serves as a Director on the Board for the National Speakers Association.

After some soul searching and some subtle (and not-so-subtle) encouragement from her friends, Kirstin decided to use her business experience, her love of food, and her desire to teach others how wonderful good-for-you food can be…and open her own restaurant called Nourish in Scottsdale, AZ.

Kirstin lives with her dogs Coal and Holly in Cave Creek, AZ.

    Hi David,
    Kirstin was so refreshing! Loved her Energy and her Passion for Life in general! Great reminders that we need to make sure we have Passion if we are going to be successful! Thanks and next time in Arizona will be trying her latest venture; Nourish! 

    • David Siteman Garland

      D – I can’t wait to visit it as well!

  • David, thank you, thank you, thank you, infinity times over.

    I just sent you an e-mail with a question exactly (and I mean EXACTLY) on this.  I am a Registered Holistic Nutritionist re-launching my business to support people newly diagnosed with food allergies and Celiac disease to learn how to heal their bodies (the healthy way that Kirstin is doing) and love their lives again.  I cannot wait to check out the Nourish123 website, and hopefully connect with Kirstin and the GFXCon.

    Thank you again!

    • David Siteman Garland

      That’s awesome Ashley. Hope you guys get a chance to hang!

  • Hey David!  Very cool interview, love Kirstin’s advice.  Have to say your conversation about discerning who to listen to reminded me very much of the Seinfeld episode where Jerry gives restaurant owner (“Babu Bhatt”) some nice but misguided advice about making his restaurant into a Pakistani cafe.  I found a clip on Youtube which has a few snippets from it:  http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tUPH5OhXC1A

      Rosie – You just made my freakin’ day with the Seinfeld reference. HAHAHAHA!
