Today I had the chance to speak with Carly Stein. Carly is an awesome woman who gave up her career at Goldman Sachs to follow her passion — beekeeping. Carly is an expert in this tiny little niche of producing high-quality, totally natural bee products. We’re not just talking about honey, but so many other products as well. We talked about the medicinal advantages of bee products, how to start a business related to food, what it’s like to be an entrepreneur as a woman, and how to offer a product that is totally authentic. If you have a mission and a vision of the life and business you want to grow, or just a passion for your health, this is absolutely the interview for you.

Key Takeaways:

[2:22] Carly’s allergic reactions to antibiotics led her to bee products.
[5:48] How did people react when Carly left her job at Goldman Sachs to start beekeeping?

[22:09] Honey can help you sleep.
[23:23] Carly does not recommend that children under the age of one use any bee products.
[25:01] How do you take honey for medicinal purposes?
[25:34] Since 2006, we have seen a steady decline in bee populations, and that is largely due to pesticide use.
[28:28] How much is organic certification worth? How can we support organic and biodynamic farmers?

Today I got to have a conversation with Rachel Maskell. Rachel is an entrepreneur, a mom, and a boss. Appropriately, her company is called Mum Boss. She does a podcast and offers amazing little mom boxes that facilitate self-care. This was a really great interview because we got underneath the hood of some of the beliefs that we carry as women that prevent us from legitimately engaging in self-care. We talked about Rachel’s non-negotiables and about her “morning pages,” which are her way of taking time to connect with her creative self. We discussed the "perfect women" and why aiming for perfection is usually the thing that holds us back. We talked about pulling together and utilizing all of these skills to move ourselves forward in life. This is the interview for you if you want to know what it is that motivates us as women, as entrepreneurs, and as mom-bosses.

Key Takeaways:
[:45] Please join our Facebook community, Legacy, a group of bad-ass women collectively committed to leaving the world better than we found it.
[3:28] Rachel’s entrepreneurship journey began through supporting her husband in his career as an entrepreneur.
[5:35] Mum Boss began as a podcast, and the topic of self-care kept coming up.
[11:03] Why is it socially acceptable to have a glass of wine after a hard day, as opposed to truly engaging in self-care?
[13:03] How does Rachel practice self-care?
[14:47] Let go of time constraints.
[16:28] We have unrealistic ideas about how to be perfect women.
[18:58] What is a mum boss?
[21:18] How can we teach our daughters the importance of self-care and help them to let go of perfectionism?
[25:41] Who are Rachel’s mom-boss mentors?
[27:19] It’s time for a new chapter in feminism.
[31:17] How do Rachel and her husband balance their love and entrepreneurism?
[34:30] Health is being able to feel your “inner gold” shining from the inside, out.
[35:30] Take this month’s quiz about sleep at meghanwalker.com/entrepologyquiz.
[36:36] Rachel’s morning routine is not consistent, but she tries to always meditate and do her “morning pages.”
[37:17] Rachel reads non-fiction.
[37:40] Rachel loves her organic, French-press coffee.
[38:06] Rachel loves to travel and do yoga.
[38:27] Do we learn to become entrepreneurs, or is it born in us?

This interview is a little bit different. Today I had the opportunity to sit down with one of my entrepreneurial superheroes, Murray Walker (also know as my dad). When at the birth of this podcast I put together a list of people I would ultimately like to interview, my dad was at the top of the list. He is the reason that I went into business, and the person who sculpted so much of my way of thinking. He is, in short, my entrepreneurial hero.


In this interview I get to ask my dad about business, and also a little bit about what he has learned from me about health. We talked about opportunity, pushing things to the next level, balancing our time, and putting things into perspective. It was tremendously insightful and I truly learned things about him that I never knew before. I hope you enjoy our conversation, too.

Key Takeaways:

[3:36] It’s crucial that parents encourage entrepreneurial skills, because schools will not.
[4:23] Mr. Walker compares his experience of entrepreneurism to a child who learns to ride a bike but doesn’t realize that he is a cyclist.
[5:42] Business opportunities usually spring from a need.
[6:47] When Mr. Walker saw an opportunity he fearlessly pursued it, and that has been key to his success.
[9:26] Mr. Walker had an insatiable desire to capitalize on opportunity, but he was determined to keep his life balanced.
[10:23] Be present wherever you are.
[11:05] What is “Imposter Syndrome,” and why should you get over it?
[13:40] Mr. Walker is a perfectionist, but he knows how and when to temper that tendency.
[15:13] Entrepreneurs should have the ability to recognize opportunities, enthusiasm, and some business education.
[16:49] Where did Mr. Walker receive his business education?
[18:12] Managing your time is crucial.
[19:32] Mr. Walker involved Meghan in business conversations from a very young age, but cautions parents against pushing their children into the family business.
[23:38] The nature of entrepreneurism changes from generation to generation.
[24:55] If he had unlimited energy and unlimited time, what business opportunity would Mr. Walker pursue right now?
[27:16] Food is fuel.
[28:29] How does Mr. Walker define health?
[29:25] Take this month’s quiz about toxicity and detox at meghanwalker.com/entrepologyquiz.
[30:29] Mr. Walker’s morning routine includes stretches and a perfectly brewed cup of coffee.
[31:24] Mr. Walker reads more nonfiction than fiction.
[32:26] What is Mr. Walker’s favorite biography?
