About 2½ years ago, I had the opportunity to work with an incredible woman while she was still a student in Toronto — Dr. Ashley Margeson. She graduated as a Naturopathic Doctor about 18 months ago, and what is truly amazing is that she’s really taken the world by storm. Now, I wasn’t surprised by this at all — but what I find so fascinating is to really delve into the journey she’s had since graduating. She has accomplished so much and has several initiatives on the go.

 

Ashley is an incredible entrepreneur whom I respect deeply; she is someone who has been consistent in her ability to try new things, be willing to fail, and confidently move forward while inspiring others.

 

This episode, we get into her hacks of entrepreneurism, how to get through the flights and expedite your sense of recovery when you land on the other side, how to keep going as a female entrepreneur and craft your environment to help support your momentum — as well as accelerating your growth! Ashley also shares the three important questions you need to ask yourself to help set yourself up for success and achieve your goals.

CALL TO ACTION

 

This week’s call to action is to stop trying to do it ‘all’. Just because you can do it, doesn’t mean you have to do it. What is one thing in your life or business that you can start saying ‘no’ to or can delegate to someone else? Hiring an assistant? Subscribing to a healthy meal delivery? Whatever it is, share your commitment on our Entrepology Podcast facebook page. Because when you are accountable, you are helpable.

I’ll be honest — it’s hard being an entrepreneur and having three kids. I think it’s hard being an entrepreneur and having any kids — but with three right now at 2, 4, and 6, there is chaos behind the scenes. Because of this, I tend to gravitate toward the female entrepreneurs on social media that seem to have found the balance between family and putting positive energy out into the universe as an entrepreneur.

 

And one of those such people is Dr. Rachel Schwartzman — a naturopathic doctor who practices here in Toronto. She has a series of initiatives out there in the world that are having a really tremendous, positive impact on families. She is one of the co-founders of West End Naturopathic Doulas where she is a naturopathic doctor working with families. She is also the co-creator to The Bump to Baby Show — a family-friendly event that really takes families through the journey of parenthood — from pregnancy, right into that young family phase.

 

We talked in this interview about entrepreneurism, how to manage picky eaters, common health misconceptions that are holding families back, and what Rachel is drinking right now to get her through this very busy time right now (two weeks before launch phase!) and how she keeps going on going as an entrepreneur.

This interview was so amazing and I hope you’ll stay tuned to listen to everything my good friend Jen Oliver has to say. We spent time talking about the physiological implications of our attitude and mindset, our capacity to actually control the electromagnetic field around our heart, and ideas of how we get to a mindset that brings us positivity, gratitude, and abundance on a daily basis. Jen is smart, articulate, and has a lot to say about empowering women!

Her industry career included personal training, fitness instruction, nutrition coaching, fitness competing, educating others through health, nutrition and wellness seminars and fitness club management.
