Today’s guest is a perfect encapsulation of what Entropology is all about. Cydney Mar is a multi-passionate entrepreneur with a flair for reinvention, believing that the lessons and skills you learn as you go through life are things that can serve you later on in compelling and amplifying ways.

 

Early in her career, she suffered a tragic accident as a national level competitive figure skater and then found herself in the fashion world. She leveraged the discipline she learned as a skater and used this to be able to build a fashion empire where her clothing was featured on QVC in eight countries for over 15 years! A second health scare (that was a near-death experience) caused her to transition her career once again, not only to focus on fashion but to emerge in the wellness space — and launch her own supplement line!

 

In this interview, Cydney gives us really incredible insight in terms of launching a project, the way of thinking like an entrepreneur, and how to serve people in a really big way. We talk about health — but really, in particular, talk about the business of building products for people. Cydney has a business now that assists practitioners (or other entrepreneurs) to take a product idea and actually start to bring it to market. Cydney’s story is the perfect blend of balancing health and entrepreneurship, which I know a lot of you will find tremendously interesting!

She sold in high-end stores across North America and went on to launch her wildly successful Cydney Mar Collection on QVC, running in eight countries for 15 years.

CALL TO ACTION

As Cydney says, the first thing you need to do when trying to get back on your feet is to not rush. When you’re facing change in your life you should not be reactive, but get grounded and nurture yourself. Put time and effort into your self-care because you’re going to need everything you’ve got to heal yourself and rise up to the challenge. If you’ve been neglecting your self-care and trying to rush into a big project, remember to take it slow if you need to! And also remember to follow-up on the Entrepology Podcast Facebook page — because when you are accountable, you are helpable.

There is one concept that if it interrupts the flow in our brain it can take us off the pathway of momentum faster than most other things I know — and that is this concept of imposter syndrome. With imposter syndrome, you’ll believe that the success you’ve achieved has really been created on a false foundation of self — that all of your success was on accident or based purely on luck and you don’t truly have the skills to back yourself up.

 

So, I wanted to explore this concept and learn how we, as entrepreneurs, can pull ourselves out of this mindset and learn how to take ownership of our capacity to achieve big things in this world. And I could think of no one better than to help me unpack this concept and move through it, than the one and only Susan Hobson. Susan is an NLP Coach, who works with executives, athletes, and people who want to take their game to the next level. She has been a guest on the podcast before and she’s going to be one of our headline keynote speakers at our upcoming Impact LIVEs Event!

 

This episode, I wanted to reintroduce you to her ideas, thoughts, and capacity to take you to the next level. She takes us through the concept of imposter syndrome (how we get there and how we can pull ourselves out of it), how to interrupt the “Yeah, buts” in our self-talk, how to find clarity and purpose in regards to your mission, and more.

 

Key Takeaways:

[1:48] About our guest for today, Susan Hobson.

[3:36] Welcoming Susan back to the podcast!

[5:42] What is imposter syndrome and how do we get there?

[9:37] How do we pull ourselves out of imposter syndrome?

[11:53] How do we interrupt the “Yeah, but” in our self-talk?

[13:13] Is there a different dialogue we can engage to get us past limiting beliefs?

[14:53] About Susan’s own experience with imposter syndrome.

[18:44] Does Susan feel that women have a harder time accessing their confidence than men?

[23:18] How does Susan work with people around mindset so they’re in a state of expansive thinking and ready to step forward.

[25:30] How to learn how to take responsibility for your mindset and patterns.

[28:05] Is having clarity and purpose of where you want to go the first step to pulling yourself out the mud?

[29:13] What Susan recommends to those who are maybe a little bit lost about their mission.

[32:30] Calling out perfectionism: why being a perfectionist keeps you on the sidelines.

CALL TO ACTION

If you’re a little lost about what your mission is and would like some clarity, do as Susan recommends and that is: know thyself. Every single thing that you’re going after in business, health, money, and relationships all starts from a foundation of self, knowing who you really are, and really getting clear about the value that you bring. Reflect on your motivations and go inward rather than outside to get to know yourself.

It’s my pleasure today to introduce you all to an accomplished Naturopathic Doctor and someone who’s at the forefront of her field talking about something we’re all curious about, but never really want to reveal amongst our group of friends — and that is optimal digestive health. Dr. Anita Davis, in particular, has been focusing in her practice on the diagnosis and treatment of a condition called SIBO — Small Intestinal Bowel Overgrowth. It is pervasive and insidious in the lives of so many of her patients.

 

Today, we get into digestive functionalities — we break down what is common or normal, and some of the practices you can engage in on a daily basis in order to accomplish ideal digestion health, and the influence optimal digestion health has on things like autoimmune functionality to the overall health of your skin. This is a relevant podcast episode for anyone that has ever had a bowel movement!

[14:22] Rapid-fire digestive questions: common vs. normal.

[21:55] Do most of Anita’s patients have normal digestion or do most people have some element of digestive functionality that can be tweaked that will have an impactful outcome for them with respect to their health?

[23:19] Anita’s approach to prescribing patients to probiotics.

[25:43] Anita explains the condition SIBO (Small Intestinal Bowel Overgrowth).

CALL TO ACTION

Let’s start working towards supporting optimal digestion! Eat more vegetables, deal with your stress and routine and separate your drinking water from your meals. You need to support your body’s ability to switch from your sympathetic, active fight-or-flight mode into the rest-and-digest mode for optimal health.
