THE FULLEST Podcast: Leading with Love: Bodies, Brands, and Business with Emica Penklis

05.04.2021 The Fullest Podcasts

Today, we are grateful to welcome the founder of Loco Love, Emica Penklis, to the podcast. It’s hard to fully capture the magic of Loco Love. Yes, it’s a chocolate brand but it’s also a portal, an art piece, and a form of healing. If you’ve ever come across a Loco Love chocolate — you’ll understand our sentiment.

For some time, we have admired this brand from afar. We’d always been curious to peek behind the curtain and understand the process of making an earthly product that also seemed somehow otherworldly. Fortunately, we were able to sit down with Emica and learn more about her vision. But as it turned out, Emica never really had a grand master plan but rather followed a series of intuitive impulses.

Emica has a storied past – as a fashion designer, international model, naturopath, herbalist, and nutritionist. Like many of us, she felt that she was trying to figure out her role in life — especially as it pertains to purpose. However, it was in releasing the need to force her career in a certain direction that Loco Love was born. In the end, Emica simply followed her natural desire to share one of her greatest loves — artisanal chocolates with herbal benefits. In fact, the more Emica put love at the forefront of her brand, the more it seemed life stepped in and took care of the rest.

If you’re interested in herbalism, intuitive business, the eternal balancing act that is motherhood and entrepreneurship, and of course, chocolate — tune in for some bites of cacao-coated wisdom. And for our own “golden ticket” moment, all those who listen in will also receive a special discount for Loco Love products.
