Returning to Old School Wellness Practices
May 4, 2023
How long has it been since you've built a puzzle with your kids or gone on a neighborhood walk? Could the healing and connection you're seeking be found in a simple cardboard box or in your own backyard? In today's episode, we're joined by Kaylin Marcotte, founder of Jiggy Puzzles. She shares her story of discovering puzzles as a form of meditation and then building a company that elevates the common jigsaw puzzle into frameable art! Kaylin reveals the key practices that got her through "Shark Tank" and the pandemic years (practices that can fortify our own resilience too)!
Kaylin Marcotte is the founder & CEO of JIGGY, a new jigsaw puzzle brand on a mission to modernize and elevate the humble jigsaw, and support female artists around the world. She turned her hobby into a company and has been featured on Shark Tank, Oprah's Favorite Things and won over celebrity fans including Gwyneth Paltrow, Lili Reinhart and Chrissy Teigen. Kaylin was previously the first employee at media startup theSkimm, and is an alum of Barnard College in New York City. Grab your own JIGGY puzzle and do the "puzzle test" today!
