No one could honestly not be more qualified in the themes of The Entrepology Podcast than today’s guest, Anne Matthews.

 

Anne is a mother of four, a badass business owner, and a Chinese Medicine Practitioner with credentials out the wazoo! She has a clinic here, in the GTA, called Energy Tree Studios, with a particular focus on fertility.

 

In today’s episode, we got down on a variety of topics, including how old you need to actually be to have a baby, how to balance children and entrepreneurship, and whether or not we should be freezing our eggs as entrepreneurs or just working to preserve egg quality.

 

This interview was so incredibly fascinating and it crossed the entire spectrum of having kids and running a business from preconception to literally having four of them running around! We covered all sorts of topics and got into all of the juicy details between — so be sure to join Anne and me as we dive in deep!

My guest today, Andrea Nakayama, is someone I’ve been super excited to bring on to the podcast! What I was so struck by when I first met her was not only her story and her resilience, but the incredible business that she built, coming out the other side of her story.

 

Andrea is the founder of the Functional Nutrition Alliance and has had over 3,500 practitioners move through her program! Andrea is a nutritionist by background, but what makes her so effective as both as a clinician and as a teacher for practitioners is her natural knack and ability to take complex, integrative ideas and bring them down and use language that makes them so simple for all of us to understand.

 

In this episode, we talk about the fundamentals of building a scalable business and being an entrepreneur and how to assess what diet you should be picking up in this massive landscape of diets! Andrea dives deep into the topic of bio-individuality, explains how all areas of our health are interconnected, and how to aim for healing in your health journey rather than reaching for the often unobtainable “ideal.”

 

Key Takeaways:

[:58] About today’s episode with Andrea Nakayama.

[2:12] Welcoming Andrea to the podcast!

[2:50] Andrea tells us her journey as an entrepreneur and the story behind her success.

[9:08] Why you need to be vulnerable and challenged to grow, reach your true potential, and find your purpose.

[12:16] Andrea talks about the sentiment that ‘when our purpose is bigger than ourselves, it gives us the power we need to “climb that mountain”’ — and it applies to not only our business but our health.

[13:50] Andrea tells us more about her businesses, the Functional Nutrition Alliance and Functional Nutrition Lab.

[14:07] What makes functional nutrition so unique and individualized.

[17:46] Andrea explains the concept of bio-individuality and why you do not have to place yourself in a dietary box.

[23:58] Andrea explains the difference between evidence-enslaved vs. evidence-informed.

[27:51] How all areas of your health are interconnected.

More About Andrea Nakayama

Andrea Nakayama is an internationally known Functional Medicine Nutritionist, educator, and speaker who is leading a movement to transform the health industry into a system that WORKS, empowering patients and practitioners alike with the systems and tools of Functional Nutrition. Her passion for this nutrition revolution came as a result of a personal family tragedy. Her young husband, Isamu, was diagnosed with a fatal brain tumor while she was just seven weeks pregnant with their only child.

 

It was in overcoming his prognosis of six months and prolonging his life for another two years that Andrea’s expanding interest in food as personalized medicine became her full-time passion and purpose. Andrea formed Functional Nutrition Lab in 2012 to further educate health practitioners in both the science and physiology of nutrition and in the art of the Functional Nutrition practice, providing professionals of diverse backgrounds with advanced tools and the depth of knowledge necessary to effect substantive changes in the lives of their own clients and patients as she has.

 

As her reach and impact have grown, Andrea has focused her mission onto personalized medicine as a means of transforming healthcare at large, delivering to each person the opportunity to take their health into their own hands, thereby gaining more ownership over their everyday choices in relation to their signs, symptoms and ultimate health. Andrea is celebrated as a leader in the field of Functional Nutrition because of her unique ability to teach and inspire practitioners and patients alike. Andrea synthesizes art and science, empathy and physiology, and intuition and problem solving into a system that truly helps people get to the root cause of their illness, create a path towards wellness, and find their way back to life.

It is an honour to have my friend and colleague Lori Kennedy back on The Entrepology Podcast! What I love about having Lori on is because it feels like we’re both just sitting here with a glass of wine, shooting back and forth about what it takes to be an optimized entrepreneur, how to support people in living their best possible lives, and getting completely real on our very own struggles as we attempt to do these things in our own life.

 

A few weeks ago, I had the pleasure of being on Lori’s podcast, The Business of Becoming, where we started to talk about what it really takes to grow a business. Today, we’re going to contrast that conversation by talking about how to avoid burnout — because working harder and hustling is not necessarily what makes us strong and effective entrepreneurs. Working smartly with ease and strategy — and by confronting the things that are getting in the way of our optimal energy — that’s how we truly achieve greatness.

 

Tune in to hear all of Lori’s nuggets of wisdom on how to avoid burnout, truly show up to your business, and up your game — personally and professionally!

It was an absolute pleasure to talk to my guest, Brie Wieselman, today! Brie is a Health Coach who has studied TCM and is massively passionate about helping women achieve optimal health so they can go do kickass things in the world!

 

Today, we’re talking about two primary pillars in Brie’s practice: digestive health and hormones.
