So, there are a few different topics that I get jazzed up around, and until today, I wasn’t exactly sure how they were related. Firstly, the notion of conscious parenting and bringing a level of awareness to how I parent and the environment I can create for my children. And secondly, when looking at my own personal development and my clinical work, this concept of bio-hacking. These, I thought, were two different ideas and two different podcast topics — until today.

 

My amazing guest today, Pamela Gold, and I have a fascinating conversation around conscious parenting which soon morphed into a great conversation around balance, bio-hacking, and incorporating all of these pieces into our consciousness — both as parents and as leader-entrepreneurs.

 

As a parent herself, Pam has developed a program in accordance with that, but on the other end of the spectrum, she’s also the owner of HACKD Fitness, a bio-hacking gym in New York City. She’s a recovering type A workaholic who has now found peace and balance in her lifestyle. In this episode, she shares the techniques, tools, and ideas that have helped her find the perfect balance between entrepreneur and parent.

 

Key Takeaways:

We have finally reached episode 100! And with this milestone, here’s what I really want to unpack today, going into the new year: the notion of being enough and acknowledging that we are enough. I really want to focus on this concept and some of the things I’ve had to do, personally, to truly step into this place.

 

When I really started leaning into this place of “I am enough” and legitimately start to get it (and not just pretend for Instagram), things began to shift for me in a monumental way — and I want you to be able to achieve this, too.

 

I want you to look at 2019 as your year of groundedness and reflect on the honesty you need to have with yourself so you have the opportunity to truly step into this place of I am enough.

 

Let’s make 2019 the best year, the biggest year, and the most impactful year of your life!

Key Takeaways:

[:25] About today’s episode.

[3:38] The concept of “I am enough” and growth (my word for 2018).

[5:02] What happened until I embraced the concept of “I am enough.”

[6:51] My challenge to all of you: seek clarity and honesty around where your desire for growth comes from.

[7:55] I want you to strive towards a place where you’re truly grateful for the things you have created and take the action that you need to take in your life so that you feel settled in that.

[8:43] Exploring where I want to go in 2019 and the commitment I’ve made to myself.

[10:35] I want you to look at 2019 as your year of groundedness!

[11:29] The exciting format changes for the podcast going forward!

She’s also the Director at Healthie — a comprehensive platform for nutritional and wellness care. But, most excitingly (for me), she’s also an entrepreneur who got the start-up itch.

Amanda uniquely contextualized nutrition and nutritional optimization for the world of entrepreneurs. We also got into the types of foods that she recommends for her clients in terms of maximizing energy and shifting our habits, and, had a really fascinating conversation around the psychology of eating (why is it that we pick the foods that we do? And what are the influences on the types of foods that we naturally select for our bodies?)

“Badass,” is a really great way to describe my guest today. Dr. Keira Barr is a global speaker, international best-selling author, educator, and dual board-certified dermatologist who’s been in practice for the last 20 years. But what makes her really exceptional at being able to talk about skin health in an integrative capacity is her own story as a cancer survivor. Ironically, as someone who’s trained in dermatology, she found herself face-to-face with a diagnosis of skin cancer. It was this that was really part of what galvanized her to want to look at skin health from an upstream perspective.

 

Our conversation today really looked at the ins and outs of sunscreen, some of the key factors that we see in terms of people who have exceptional skin health, and some of the things we should be looking at if skin health is something you have struggled with or want to look at from a preventative capacity.

 

Our skin is one of the things that we project outwardly; it’s part of our brand. It gives us confidence. It’s critical to us when we’re talking about health but also when we have the confidence to step forward as entrepreneurs on a mission that we are all focused on.

 

Key Takeaways:

[2:02] About my guest today, Dr. Keira Barr.

[3:29] Welcoming Dr. Barr to the podcast!

[3:53] Keira shares her story and journey that has gotten her to this point.

[7:44] How Keira’s own experience shifted her practice.

[9:49] What has been Keira’s experience working with patients on their skin health.

[12:35] Keira talks about how the brain plays a role in your skin.

[13:45] Keira explains the general side effects of Accutane as well as its impact systemically and from a long-term perspective.

[18:16] Important foods that we should eliminate or include to support skin health.

[22:30] How do we navigate topical skin-care and what are the key ingredients we should be looking for?

[26:15] Keira’s take on sunscreen!

[29:48] Keira’s favorite sunscreens.

[33:19] Keira’s key takeaways for proper skin health.

[34:24] Correlations between sleep and skin health.

[35:28] Habits and correlations Keira has noticed amongst people with impeccable skin.
