At Home With Beth Bassil & Danielle Goodman, Co-Founders

On ‘At Home With,’ we virtually visit our members and catch up on their current normal. From recommended reading and podcasts to creative recipes and wellness routines, get to know the network - and maybe even come away with a little activity inspo.

Meet Beth Bassil and Danielle Goodman, co-founders of b.good PR. The pair just launched their biz in January, putting them in a unique situation when the pandemic hit just a few months later. We were excited to hear how they persevered during tough times, absolutely taking inspo from their perspective that, "Change is good, it forces us to grow and test our boundaries with ourselves and the outside world.” Catch what their lockdowns looked like on separate coasts, plus their new go-to activities for an instant mood boost.

What’s your usual location, and where are you currently staying?

Beth: I technically live in Los Angeles, but after four months of not seeing my family, and when things started to get a little better, I flew to New York to my childhood home. I missed everyone too much but forgot what it’s like living with parents, three siblings and two dogs - talk about 0 to 100. A plus side is that it’s been a lot less lonely and I feel really fortunate to have this time with them.

Danielle: In Los Angeles, we just moved to a little area named Picfair Village.

Did you discover any new pastimes or creative outlets during lockdown that you’ll stick with?

Beth: I discovered that I am actually not a bad cook and that it really soothes me to be in the kitchen listening to music or a podcast. I also kickstarted a spiritual practice, a mix of kundalini breathwork everyday and even went as far as becoming Level 1 Reiki Certified. It has significantly depleted my anxieties and has me in control of my emotions.

Danielle: I got really into baking cakes - I love the recipes from the NY Times app. I quickly realized that I had to put an end to it, though, when my reiki healer told me that she kept seeing cakes when clearing out my heart. I would love to start gardening and I am toying with the idea of building a chicken coop. I also discovered breathwork and chilled red natural wine - both put me in a good mood.

Do you have any favorite podcasts, books, newsletters, etc.?

Beth: I have been really into the goop podcast. Some of their guests have really captivated my attention and had me start learning more about myself, actually. The Morning Brew Newsletter is my go-to, they have all of the news updates you need in a quick recap with a witty, sarcastic twist. In terms of books, I read both of Vishen Lakhiani’s books: The Code of the Extraordinary Mind and The Buddha and the Badass (highly recommend) and I enjoyed “Obsessed: Building A Brand People Love” by Emily Heyward.

Danielle: Podcasts I love are The Daily, How I Built This and goop. I am currently reading an Infinite Game by Simon Sinek and just finished Untamed by Glennon Doyle.

What do you miss most from pre-Covid life, and what’s keeping you going right now?

Beth: The thing I miss most about pre-pandemic life is travel. I was excited to travel to different countries this year, but that’s okay. I actually have been spending a lot of time outdoors connecting with nature and exploring parts of my city I probably wouldn’t if Covid did not happen.

Danielle: Well I haven’t seen my family in a while, they live in Michigan. I miss dinner dates and cocktails outside with friends and having my Midwest and East Coast friends visit.

As travel starts opening up, where will you be vacationing first?

Beth: I really want to go to Portugal and Spain, but it depends on the state of the world. I’ve also been feeling the need to go to Wyoming and Montana, which definitely wouldn’t be a bad start!

Danielle: Greece, but also heard wonderful things about the San Juan Islands.
