We had the good fortune of connecting with Dana Knowles Licko and we’ve shared our conversation below.

Hi Dana, we’d love to hear more about how you thought about starting your own business?
My thought process was simply passion. This business is so personal because it literally comes from me trying to find non conventional ways to heal from opiate pain killer addiction. After getting out of treatment I still felt horrible and started researching non pharmaceutical ways to heal my brain and body and that’s how I found adaptogenic herbs and medicinal mushrooms.

What should our readers know about your business?
The name GoDeep is the theme of my life and recovery from drug addiction. And the word speaks for itself. You have to GoDeep, figure out how to heal, what makes you happy. GoDeep is a health and wellness brand that focuses on three blends of collagen, adaptogens and medicinal mushrooms that help with anxiety, energy, & insomnia while supporting hair, skin and gut health. The idea is to focus on Radical Self Care. Learn how to take care of yourself and filll your own cup so that you have enough t help and lift up others around you.

Any places to eat or things to do that you can share with our readers? If they have a friend visiting town, what are some spots they could take them to?
I would take my friend to Awake Denver, a conscious coffee and zero proof cocktail bar in Denver. People who don’t drink need space. Alcohol is everywhere in society: weddings, funerals, school events, happy hours. So those of us who don’t partake also need a place to socialize. I would go there first, and then hit up the Art Hotel near downtown Denver and have dinner at the Fire Restaurant (they have an amazing menu).

The Shoutout series is all about recognizing that our success and where we are in life is at least somewhat thanks to the efforts, support, mentorship, love and encouragement of others. So is there someone that you want to dedicate your shoutout to?
My entire family has been so supportive of me throughout this process. My husband keeps our household together while I try and grow this business.
