Have you ever had a deep voice telling you to move cities, change your job or invent something new for the world? But you don’t know what to do to get out of your fears and into your heart?
Well, you are not alone. My guest today, Trina Wyatt, has been there several times. She is not only our teacher today on Cracking Open about following your inner voice, but she’s also mixing it with degrees, experience, and being a bold woman in business.
At age 13, Trina left the teachings of the Mormon Church and her devout family to begin pursuing her own spiritual path. For the next thirty years, she explored agnosticism, atheism, meditation, yoga, and Buddhism to develop her own personal spiritual practice.
And if this was not enough for one lifetime, after receiving her undergraduate degree from UCLA, followed by an MBA from NYU, Trina forged a successful business career in mainstream film and entertainment.
Trina launched the Tribeca Film Festival with Robert De Niro and served as its Founding Director. Besides Tribeca Entertainment, she’s also worked as a senior executive at Intrepid Pictures, which co-produced and co-financed genre films such as The Strangers, The Raven, The Cold Light of Day, and Waist Deep.
Trina has also held the position of CFO at Prana Studios, and led the team that acquired Rhythm & Hues, the Oscar-winning visual effects company, worked at IMDB and Film Independent, and then relocated to Boulder, Colorado in 2014 to accept a position at Gaia TV as Chief Content Officer. During her tenure there, she and her team set a new standard for the creation and distribution of conscious media.
In 2016, Trina’s love of inspirational stories, her passion for using business as a force for good, and her commitment to personal growth, inspired her to create Conscious Good, a media streaming service and community platform for those committed to “being the change they wish to see in the world”.
Shortly after its launch, Conscious Good established the Humanitarian Film Festival to support the UN’s World Humanitarian Day, and then established the highly acclaimed Mindscape Film Festival, celebrating stories of the Mind as integral to Body and Spirit.
In addition to her current active role as Founder and CEO of Conscious Good, Trina is producing a feature film with Black Label Media which produced one of my favorite films — Begin Again — that sheds light on the challenges of mental illness facing our society today.
She has served on the Advisory Board of Global Alliance for Transformational Entertainment (G.A.T.E.), and as a consultant for the Illuminate Film Festival.
And she is here today with us to teach us about being courageous in business, telling the truth for your own life journey, and knowing that on your toughest days if you can just get yourself to your yoga mat you have accomplished enough.
