INTERVIEW | Rachel on Creativity and Vegan Food Trucks

Last week I took the opportunity to sit down with a good friend and entrepreneurial badass Rachel Musquiz, founder of Austin-based food truck Curcuma. Rachel talks about how she navigated her way out of the corporate jungle that is Times Square and found herself in a beautiful, turquoise food truck in the heart of ATX, serving up plants that feed the body, mind and soul. 


Like myself, Rachel is an avid podcast listener, reader, bullet journaler and inspiration collector. Below are just a few of the things that have helped her along the way:
