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

Hi Whitney, is your business focused on helping the community? If so, how?
When we empower women with hormonal literacy, we address reproductive justice, we enable women who are struggling to have children as well as those who do not wish to get pregnant but do not want to use hormonal contraception.

Alright, so for those in our community who might not be familiar with your business, can you tell us more?
I teach people to embody the wild and crazy dream that haunts them but they haven’t figured out how to create yet. I have done that myself, as I left my former life of 15 years of fitness and entrepreneurship in NYC to move to a beach in Mexico and work remotely two years ago.

What sets me apart is my resilience and ability to fail forward. I have taken many risks throughout my career and left my life “behind” multiple times, each time rebuilding and committing anew.

I have a variety of my experiences and trainings: I have been a professional dancer, public school teacher, owned and built a brick and mortar studio in NYC, and became a first-time mother at 40 years old.

I believe we must risk failure and go after our dreams, as if our lives depend on it. I have some regrets but mostly I am grateful for who I have met, what I have learned about myself along this journey AND that I am able to encourage other people to reach far for what they want.

Let’s say your best friend was visiting the area and you wanted to show them the best time ever. Where would you take them? Give us a little itinerary – say it was a week long trip, where would you eat, drink, visit, hang out, etc.
I would say they should take a boat trip to see the incredible marine life we have in Mexico. They should check out surfing and try one of the amazing fitness classes we have here. They should get a tattoo at my husband’s studio. They should volunteer with the local dog rescue effort. And, they should enjoy delicious seafood while here! Oh, and visit the mangrove sanctuary that we have on the coast too!

Who else deserves some credit and recognition?
Kelly Kane. Kelly showed me that my body, with all of its flaws, weakness and traumas was worthy of embodiment. She taught me that entrepreneurship and motherhood could go hand in hand. She taught me build something magnificent from sheer basics, a principle that can apply to nearly any area of life.
