What do you do when you’ve just been diagnosed with an incurable autoimmune disease, you are going through a divorce, and your job of ten years is winding down? Do you throw caution to the wind and start something the world has never known, or do you play it safe?
Playing it safe was not an option for Lainey Morse. Instead, she drew inspiration from the happy distractions provided by six adorable goats and in 2016, Original Goat Yoga was born!
That was only the beginning of a funny, scary, and ultimately fulfilling journey. No one plans on their small endeavor going viral, and there is no roadmap for dealing with the craziness it entails. However, with 20-years of marketing experience and a business model focused on helping others start and sustain their own goat yoga enterprise, she was able to navigate the twists and turns.
After hundreds of appearances in publications and media outlets including CNN, The NY Times, Time Magazine, Wall Street Journal, NPR, BBC, and many more, Lainey found her voice describing how to persevere in the face of adversity, the power of reconnecting with our rural roots, the fulfillment borne of helping others to realize their dreams, and the joy that comes from a goat picking your yoga mat to lie on.
