In times like this, we all need a little art in our ears — and IN-Q is the oasis of inspiration that our souls are craving right now. He’s a national poetry slam champion, an award-winning poet, a multi-platinum songwriter, and his new book Inquire Within is out now. If you ever get the chance to hear him live, do it. Listening to him recite his poetry live is so powerful and mesmerizing. Even though he’s sharing his own thoughts and feelings, he invites the audience to go inside themselves and ask how they feel about it. In this episode we explore the life of a poet and creator, finding inspiration, and learning to make a living with your art.  AND LISTEN UNTIL THE END!! In-Q performs a few pieces of his work that Krista and Lindsey request. The girls will never forget this one.


We also talk about:

  • Balancing your ego with being present
  • How vulnerability leads to empathy
  • How community influences art
  • The stories we tell ourselves
  • Making money while maintaining artistic integrity
  • Getting over your resistance
  • Remembering that you have a choice in your life
  • Greed + conscious capitalism
