We had the good fortune of connecting with Mary Haberski and we’ve shared our conversation below.

Hi Mary, if you had a million dollars to invest right now, how would you use that capital?
Since we are a non-profit I would hire and pay a team to get the ball rolling on our programming and implement it. I would also pay myself a liveable wage. I have been working on this passion project for 5.5 years with no pay, it would be rad to be able to pay myself a livable wage so I could focus more time and energy on it! Things move slow without money and volunteers, we would grateful accept a cool mill!!!

Can you open up a bit about your work and career? We’re big fans and we’d love for our community to learn more about your work.
I am a multi-passionate entrepreneur; CEO and founder of Daana Blue, world celebrated yoga and meditation teacher, tarot reader and social media influencer. Everyday of being a entrepreneur is a challenge, if it’s not you aren’t growing! I overcome hurdles by asking for feedback from people who I respect and dive deep into my inner personal world to see what stories I am creating around the issues. Once I identify the falsehoods, I take action to change.

Any great local spots you’d like to shoutout?
Favorite sports city? Hands down my hometown Chicago. But I am most impressed by fellow surfers when I’m in the ocean or watching video clips of the pros.

Shoutout is all about shouting out others who you feel deserve additional recognition and exposure. Who would you like to shoutout?
