Quentin Vennie didn’t have the typical upbringing of a successful wellness CPG entrepreneur. He grew up in West Baltimore, was the victim of gun violence before age 12, and overcame addiction and numerous suicide attempts before a life-changing moment when the wellness world ‘found him.’ These days, The Equitea Co. co-founder is on a mission to destigmatize mental health — one sip at a time. In this heart-filled episode, Quentin shares how he overcame being ‘othered’ to carve out spaces for himself where people like him were nowhere to be found. Quentin teaches us how anyone can use gratitude, tap into their ‘why,’ and trust a higher power to get where they want to go — even in the toughest of circumstances.
