My guest this week is Heather Reinhardt, An Atlanta, Georgia transplant who has been in LA for 10 years. Heather is a writer, author and content creator, who knew she wanted to come to LA early on. Heather started her career in hair and make-up and then transitioned into being this boss lady who writes, produces, and publishes books primarily centered around self-love. In this episode Heather talks about something I’ve never heard of before, it’s called the Saturn return, and if you pay attention to astrology at all it happens when you are nearing your 30s and its a pretty transformative experience and almost like a wake up call. I think for me, I tend to catch on to things fairly late so I was so glad that Heather enlightened me on what she’s learn all throughout her twenties and I hope you can find some great takeaways from this conversation as well. Heather was ready to break the facades, are you?

I'll be speaking on self-love, there'll be amazing food + even more amazing swag bags, and even even more amazing women to network with)
Introducing Devan Garcia! A Tampa, FL transplant who came out to LA to make it as an artist and musician. In this episode, we dive right in to the trials and tribulations of being a starving artist in Lala land. We talk purpose, failure and how he stays grounded by his faith and staying true to himself and his craft. I think a lot of times in LA it can be hard to remain true to yourself especially in the music and entertainment industry when there is so much pressure from managers and record labels trying to tell you who you ought to be. Devan knows himself and his craft and is pretty profound at the young age of 23. His music really sits with me as it’s so relatable to the struggles out here in LA and I’m thinking his 10,000 plus fans think so too. I promise you that you will be seeing this kid’s name in blue NEON pretty soon.

Ep. 19 - Mental Health isn't Black or White w/ Licensed Mental Health Clinician Don'Nika Jenkins by The Facade Project
Hey Facaders, I have been MIA this past week but I promise to get you a new guest this week and just had to break the facade and let you know what I was going through. In this episode I talk about the Parkland shooting, mental health, and my thoughts on bystanders. I hope you know that being a bystander is never ever okay and if you see something you have to say something so these atrocities don't continue to happen and people don't harm themselves or others. Have a great week and always BREAK THE FACADES! xoxo - Kiara
What’s up Facaders! Hope you are having a good start to your February! If you noticed my instagram game getting stronger I want to say thank you for following and if you haven’t well you need to follow the facade project on instagram at break the facades! I am starting to post videos of topics that I feel strongly about with this week being how to network properly so make sure you head on over to insta to hear my personal thoughts. I just want to start breaking the facades of the quotes and start showing you all my personality a bit more. This week I am talking with Chenay Barnes, She was born and raised in Memphis, Tennessee, works in LA doing production, directing, producing and dancing and knew her purpose in life at a young age. She was a military brat, dealt with a lot growing up but knew she had to hustle to get to where she wanted to be. She listened to other people who told her what she should be doing with her life, and then hit a breaking point to where she needed to listen to what she knew all along. In this interview she opens up to me about some traumatic experiences that she had growing up, the moment she realized God’s purpose for her life, networking and getting to LA but then the hardships that occurred while living here. She works hard and has determination to get to where she wants to be and our conversation taught me that we can make excuses, and we can wallow in self-pity and we can complain or feel down and out but we can also get up and we can keep going. And we can cry about and then handle it. What’s that one quote “are you gonna cry about it? Or are you gonna boss up?” First of all Imma do both. And I titled this episode “first of all imma do both” because this entire conversation just reminded me that there’s nothing wrong with that at all. You can feel your emotions fully and handle your business at the same damn time. @chaineb
What’s up Facaders! It is the last Sunday in January and I don’t know about y’all but I feel like this month dragged on. But I am ready to hit that reset button and go into February with a fresh start, fresh intentions, and fresh attitude. I’m taking things step by step, quarter by quarter this time around and if something didn’t quite go the way you hoped, just know that there is always a new day on the horizon. My guest this week is a California Native, Alexa Vellanoweth and I am so stoked to say that she is the first guest who reached out to come onto the podcast after hearing The Eskimo Sisters join me in breaking the facades so that was a pretty cool feeling. Alexa is an actress, comedian, singer and dancer. She talks to me about being super involved growing up from sports to acting, finding a true passion for theatre versus film, and realizing her privilege and wanting more people to do the same. Alexa and I have a lot in common as far as how we were raised and some inner battles we tend to struggle with but her vulnerability in this podcast with me was one of the most appreciated because I hadn’t even met her in real life in doing this episode so it’s kind of cool to see someone who belives in what you’re doing and is willing to be so open and transparent with their journey. Alexa has some pretty interesting things to say about facades being that she grew up with LA in her backyard, She was ready to break the facades. Are you? @allexavellanoweth @breakthefacades
What’s up Facaders! This week is a female empowerment type of episode. I talk with my very good friend, Lexi Loccisano, who moved out to LA at the same time as I did to work for the show Shark Tank. We went to college together and applied for the same internship not expecting for both of us to get it but when we did we were filled with joy because we knew that when the going got tough, we would have a friend to lean on. A friend who you can lean on in LA especially is so important because not only do they remind you of home and that you’re not alone in a huge city, but they kind of keep you grounded and understand how you’re feeling with certain things for example when happy hour here is normal priced items in Florida… but anywayss Lexi is a singer/songwriter who hopes to inspire and create change with her songs. We talk about relationships, tinder, being pressured to do things sexually that almost no one would be comfortable with, mental health and taking back our power as women and people to protect our most vulnerable moments in life. I think there’s a lot of outside pressures on situations sometimes to do the right thing or almost a question of why would you do something that you’re not comfortable with but the double edged sword with that is you don’t know what you would do in certain situations, whether you freeze up, do something out of love or even just do it and are regretful after the fact, we as females need to be there for each other to listen, help process, and help out where needed. This episode taught me that our feelings are valid and important, sometimes we don’t have and answer as to why we do something but it’s better to focus on what we learned and took away from the situation in moving forward with our lives and then I also learned that we have to be vulnerable with ourselves first. Knowing what we want and who we want to share our deepest desires with and waiting for that moment in doing so. Loving ourselves first is the top priority and if we can’t do that, we start to spiral into these feelings of negativity, self-loathing, comparing and eventually depression. Lexi was able to break down some of these feelings with me and I am so glad she was willing to because I think some of this is going to be relatable for so many of us women. I know it was for me. Lexi was ready to break the facades, are you?
What’s Up Facaders! We are now half way through January 2018 and I don’t know about you but I have already taken a couple L’s in the new year. You know it just goes back to what I said in the previous week’s episode. Hardships and struggles will always occur no matter what exciting things a new year can mean for you and you just have to take it with a grain of salt and keep it pushin. This week’s guest knows all about keeping it pushing. Mostly pushing weights but he has definitely been through some ups and downs in his life but you wouldn’t know that by looking on his social media! Introducing Jordan Morello. A businessman, youtuber/model and fitness influencer with over 80 thousand organic instagram followers. Seriously Jordan does it all and aims to inspire the masses to get off their assess. I literally just made that up but Jordan really is such a positive, inspirational, hard-working young man who knows what he wants and doesn’t let anything get in his way. In this episode, Jordan opens up in this interview about having Dyslexia, turrets and ADHD and how that affected his schooling and helped him find a new love and appreciation for fitness, his new youtube series Anchors which features incredible individuals who share what grounds them, his company that he started called Complete Wellness, and his purpose to just be the reason why somebody smiles. I think I was so excited during this interview because Jordan is the type of person who communicates extremely well, is just a nice human being, despite the fact that he is good looking and has so many followers on instagram which can go to a lot of people’s heads and honestly is so focused on his goals that it just inspired me and made for a really great conversation. I hope you all feel like you can take on anything after listening to this episode because you really can. with that being said, Jordan was ready to break the facades, are you? @jordan_morello
