Thanks so much for having me, Josh. And I loved in the intro, you know, your mission to share the not just the successes of the business, but also the challenges because I, there’s a lot that goes on behind the scenes that ended up being I think, some of our greatest gifts. So thank you, and thank you for the show that you’re you’re putting out there for people.
Joshua Chin 2:04
Thank you for being here. And I think that’s, you know, the stories of personal stories of both the highs and the lows. And the media portrays the highs all the time, but we don’t talk about the lows enough. And I think that’s where most of the learning happens, as well. So Nikki, for those of those of us who are listening who don’t know who you are, give us a quick introduction of your background, we talked a little bit about this before we can record your background how you ended up in entrepreneurship.

Yeah, so my, my career began in the emerging tech industry. And I was working with fortune 500 companies across the United States on building out their tech strategies for 510 years out. And something that I really fell in love with was not just delivering the technology, but I became super interested in building the machine. And, you know, when I say machine, I don’t mean it in a in an inhuman way. I mean it in the structures and systems and processes that people thrive within to create amazing products and services in the world. And so my, my career took me down this path of becoming more interested in the people and, and high performing people and teams and having everybody win. And that led me to building a consulting firm on behalf of the company I was working for in Argentina, and taking on a chief of staff role and really investing in developing people. And as that journey continued on, I was building my business side by side. And there was kind of this tipping point where my greatest path to impact had me leave the tech world and, and jump fully into e commerce so that I can really serve my mission in the world which was bringing peace, harmony and happiness to people
Joshua Chin 4:06
love that bring peace, harmony and happiness to people. I know for a fact that not many people have clarity of what their mission in life is how do you get to a point where you understand you acknowledge that? This is this is why I am this way I am here on this on this earth. How do you get to this?
Nikki Mocerino 4:30
I think, you know, I think a lot of it is letting go of that search for for the mission. You know, when we when we can stop seeking something outside of ourselves. You know, I see it so often people are looking for their mission, and it kind of paralyzes them and so instead of being in the flow of life and moving forward, it’s a stopping point. And so I really love just instead of of needing to find the perfect thing. Just going out and living a life that you’re really, really proud of, and getting clear on what’s really important to you? And the answers come, you know, I think it’s less about what the mission is and more about who you become on that path in life to, to uncovering work that lights you up. I think that is, you know, I think I can serve my mission. In my business, I can also serve my mission and taking my dog for a walk or playing with my dog outside. Because it’s just so clear. For me. My mission is a world that works for everyone and a world where everybody wins.

It’s amazing. And well, The Ohm Store. And The Ohm Store is this very successful brand. And the dichotomy between what you’re doing today, and being a proponent of mindfulness and enjoying the present, very different from what you used to do in the emerging tech world where it’s all about speed and change and digital transformation. How do you balance that? That that to, especially when I guess most of those in the working world are thinking about growth and change in speed? Now, how? How do you kind of think about that, that difference?
