Today’s guest is a Naturopathic doctor who practices here in Ontario. What is so fundamentally unique about what she has built is that her business is founded upon the notion of intention and female empowerment. Dr. Michelle Peris leads her business initiatives and entrepreneurial spirit from intent, her spirit, and what feels right in a way and with a bravery that I wish more people would look at and embrace. With her, it is not about putting out something perfect, but instead, putting out something meaningful into the world. As a result, she has built a clinic and a tribe of women who follow her as they should!
 
Today’s interview was about health and how to create a vision and intention for our business and the actual exercises we need to go through to make that happen. We take a look at balancing the need to have a vision for where we’re going while maintaining a plan for execution that keeps us grounded and moving forward. We also talked vision boards, health practices, and daily routines. This is a gem for anyone who knows and feels and wants to infuse those elements into their business!
 
Key Takeaways:
[3:11] Michelle shares her personal journey and her passions.
[4:16] How Michelle got into naturopathic medicine.
[6:55] What she considers her personal quest in terms of healthcare and entrepreneurial journey.
[9:26] In creating her business that is focused on intention, how does Michelle helps her clients engage in it as well?

More About Michelle Peris
Dr. Michelle Peris is a Naturopathic Doctor and clinic director of The Poppy Clinic serving women in Oakville and the surrounding areas who are so over feeling sick or staying home with a sick child (again). These women hope there’s a different way to look after their health; they’re ready to stop messing around taking the newest health supplement, starting yet another fad diet, or trying the latest workout craze. They’re ready to try something that works—for their body. Through teaching women of all ages and life stages how to listen to their bodies and tune into the wisdom inside, Dr. Peris helps them create a life that feels good to live, with energy and passion that had been long forgotten. Her clinical focus is on women and children, hormone health, and digestion. As a speaker and creator of the Rebel Tribe, she loves giving and facilitating talks about wellness, mindfulness, and living our best life. When she’s not working through health concerns with her patients, you can find her sipping bulletproof coffee, hanging out with her tribe which includes her super cool husband, playing with her two young kids, or staying up entirely too late with her husband and a few goofy pets.

I was nervous for this one. I fancy myself as a pretty decent communicator, but there is nothing like inviting a communication consultant, to put that confidence to the test. Mary Shores is the author of Conscious Communications and has been working as a CEO and serious badass for the last 20 years. Her interest in language is not relegated to simply one’s vocabulary, she is equally fascinated with the neurological implications of tone and intonation. Seriously cool stuff.

 

Mary teaches people how to harness the power of words to change their own  mindset and the mindset of those around them. This was a super-fascinating conversation because all of us are in a position of influence — all of us are out there trying to change the world on a daily basis. If we don’t have our words to back us up, we miss out on the opportunity for greater impact.

Have you ever wondered if everything is determined by your genes or if you have some element of control at all? There’s a 50/50 split with all patients sitting in my office; half of them really wish that they could explain all the things that are awry in their life and health through their genes, and the other half are begging for the opportunity to garner more control. The reality is: The truth lies somewhere in the middle. And that’s what we talked about today with Dr. Kara Fitzgerald.

 

Dr. Fitzgerald is a naturopathic doctor that I was absolutely thrilled to have on my podcast. She has extensive knowledge on the concept of epigenetics; the things we can do to change our predetermined D.N.A. and in this episode, we got into simple hacks that you can use on a daily basis to shift your entrepreneurial mindset, increase your energy, and improve your overall health. You definitely don’t want to miss this one!

 

Key Takeaways:

[2:05] All about my guest today, Dr. Kara Fitzgerald.

[3:47] Dr. Fitzgerald tells us about her background and how she got where she is today.

[7:46] What Dr. Fitzgerald’s personal mission is what gets her up in the morning every day.

[9:50] What is Dr. Kara Fitzgerald’s primary focus from a consumer perspective?

[12:10] The interesting case of adults reacting with an immediate hypersensitivity to foods they’ve never reacted to before.

[18:38] What epigenetics is and why we all should care about it.

[24:00] Are there things that we do on a daily basis that we should or shouldn’t do that have a profound effect on the epigenetic environment within your body?

[34:30] Do you think people can do it with diet and lifestyle alone or do they need supplementation?

[38:14] Dr. Kara Fitzgerald recommendations to entrepreneurs to add to their list of habits every day.

[41:33] Dr. Fitzgerald’s initiatives to further explore these concepts and some of the programs she runs with IFM.

Jan 9, 2018

Welcome to 2018, everyone! I wanted to kick-start the front of January by having a little solo time with you, so this is just a short little podcast. We’re into that second week of January and this is when all those New Year’s resolutions start to dwindle, lose their fizzle, and it becomes hard to keep going.

If this is something you can relate to or you work with clients that could relate to this then this is for you! So what I want to talk about in today’s episode is: What are the things that distinguish people who consistently hit their goals from those who cannot?

 

Key Takeaways:

[1:23] The classic paradigm of the New Year’s resolution.

[2:04] People with a sense of purpose can get to where they want to go; the strategy behind sticking to goals.

[3:25] The challenge of January — the greatest time of the year to take a look back, reset, and refocus your goals for the coming year.

[5:19] Really good goals require really strong planning. I challenge you to do some tweaking on your goals.

[6:00] Divide your goals; creating goals that fit separate categories.

[6:21] The two types of goals: Goals that define our means, and mission-based goals.

[8:06] The main distinction between people in my practice that get better quickly from those that get stuck — purpose.

[9:53] Means-based goals vs. mission-based goals.

[13:33] My call to action to you!

The guest for today’s interview is a badass, hands down. Jenn Pike is all about helping people find their inner simplicity. Finding the core things that are important to you and making decisions every day that make your life easier and how that impacts — not only your health — but the health of your kids and the people around you.

As most of you already know about me, I get really excited at this notion of health legacy — that the way you live your life has an impact on the people in your immediate surrounding — and this is what Jenn is all about. She’s an accomplished author, speaker, yoga instructor, holistic nutritionist, and she’s a passionate advocate for people moving upstream to find out how to find their true sense of wellness through everyday decisions. Jenn is full of wisdom; she’s one of those speakers that can stand on stage and draw from an inner depth of experience in such a way that you are compelled to take action.
