Long time friend Jen Dalton joins Alexandra and Lenya to discuss writing, where to get your news, bullying, and so much more. Jen is an author of a YA novel called “Of Butterflies & Bullies” available now on Amazon. Jen tells the story of how she wrote a novel about being bullied in school so that other kids getting bullied could have something to read and see that they are not alone, and they are not broken. There is also a deep discussion on the humanitarian crisis in Haiti, the struggles of White saviorism versus helping fellow humans, and how Hearthstone Village is getting girls in Haiti to not only finish high school, but to go to college, too! Haiti has one of the lowest rates of girls in school, and a girls education is the greatest tool to get a community out of poverty. Jenny Dalton (you can call her Jen too) is an author, facilitator, coach, healer and polymath. She’s an ENFT, Sagittarius, Manifesting Generator. Her work in the world flows from facilitating healthier local food systems and fundraising for an orphanage in Haiti, to talking about her recently published book “Of Butterflies & Bullies” – a Judy Blume inspired story about her experience being bullied in 5th grade. She’s also starting what she calls the Better Friends Club which will create a space for grown women to heal from their own childhood bullying. And, Jenny is excited that she recently became a Kind Campaign ambassador which means she will be facilitating school assemblies to empower younger girls to talk about their own bullying experiences. As a woman who devours learning opportunities and reads voraciously, she leans towards topics of spirituality, quantum physics, shamanism, plant medicines, the mysteries of life and consciousness and post-apocalyptic survival stories.

Plus more than that, they analyze the backlash afterwards, from Piers Morgan to Sharon Osborne, to Cheryl Underwood, plus others, and discuss all the gritty details.

Today we are joined by brother and sister, Nycol and Matthew Bevis. Bevis. God, I messed it up right there too. That is my bad because I didn’t practice that well enough. Matthew Bevis: It can happen. Roy Morejon: So Nycol and Matthew, you guys are the founders of your very first product launch on Kickstarter. You guys launched The Top Shelf, which is an amazing, super fast all-access camera bag. I’m super stoked to have you guys on the show. Nycol, Matthew, welcome to the show. Matthew Bevis: Thanks. Nycol Bevis: Thank you so much. Thanks to be here. Roy Morejon: Yeah. So you guys are photographers. You’re brother and sister, right? So I’m really excited. One, to see how you guys actually started a company together because that, I don’t know if I could ever do that with family or let alone my sisters, but really what was that inspiration, that a-ha moment that inspired you both to create The Top Shelf product, the camera bag. Nycol Bevis: Okay, well, I’ll let Matt start with his inspiration. Then we can go into how we came together on this. But, Matt. Matthew Bevis: Yeah, I was a photographer doing like events and especially weddings for like three or four years. My passion was landscape photography and everything. And when I was doing weddings, I was so annoyed just with the current camera bags that it was just always on my mind. I was like, “These things need to change.” There’s really only three or four styles of different camera bags. And every company is making a different variation of those four kind of styles. And it just really, really annoyed me. And I love just coming up with ideas. So yeah, it was just always on my mind.
