There’s no time like the present to really make things happen! So what I’ve decided to do for this episode — and for the next couple of weeks — is to bring you solo episodes related to the three verticals that we talk about on The Entrepology Podcast: business, body, and inner-badass! These are going to be short little episodes that will help you to really lay the foundation for a whole new story.

 

So to kick things off, we’re going to be talking about how to become a visionary entrepreneur! For some of us, it’s really easy to slip into this visionary role, but for others, it can come a bit harder. So in this episode, I’ll be breaking down some of the systems and patterns of thinking that I do in my own life so that I can actually execute and hang out in my strongest visionary state.

 

These are my seven steps to becoming a visionary entrepreneur!

 

Key Takeaways:

[1:02] About today’s solo episode!

[5:05] The first step to becoming more visionary: having creative space.

[7:56] The second step: a capacity to notice problems all around you.

[10:42] The third step: practice seeing the world through a glass-half-full perspective.

[12:10] The fourth step: evaluating whether your idea or solution is truly scalable.

[14:25] The fifth step: being willing to be wrong.

[16:30] The sixth step: be comfortable with risk.

[18:56] The seventh step: you’ve got to write your best ideas down.

[20:08] My challenge to all of you.

[20:47] What’s to come for The Entrepology Podcast in 2020!

BADASS FUEL — Fuel for Badass Women

Two years ago, someone asked me what supplements I take to maintain my health, energy, and edge and they were surprised that I only took four things consistently. For myself and my patients, there are four basics that support — at a foundational level — nearly every system in our bodies. In my quest for the highest quality ingredients and the easiest system for consistently incorporating supplementation to my routine, I formulated and manufactured my own line of foundational supplements. Trusted for myself and my patients, and under the guidance of your own healthcare provider, I’m excited to invite you to check out our foundational product line: Badass Basics.

Now sitting at nearly 150 episodes, I’ve come to realize that there’s one topic that we haven’t unpacked or explored nearly as much as we should have. And that is autoimmune conditions. Autoimmune conditions affect women infinitely more frequently than they do men and especially for busy, stressed-out ladies like ourselves!

 

So today, I’ve asked one of my friends — Dr. Alison Danby, a renowned expert on autoimmune conditions — to come on and share her wisdom all about autoimmune conditions. She’s going to take us through why it is that so many women are actually missing out on the opportunity to be diagnosed with an autoimmune condition and what we should all be looking at not only to reverse them but to prevent them from emerging in the first place!

 

Key Takeaways:

[1:02] About today’s episode with Dr. Alison Danby!

[1:57] Welcoming Dr. Alison Danby to the podcast!

[2:27] Alison tells us about her background and why autoimmune conditions are an area of women’s health that she is so passionate about.

[3:26] What exactly does it mean to have an autoimmune condition?

[4:41] Are autoimmune conditions happening with an increased frequency or are we just becoming better at detecting them earlier on?

[5:45] A third of the women we see in our practice have positive antibodies against the thyroid. Is this trend something Dr. Danby is also seeing in her own practice?

[6:44] The importance of running antibody tests to check for autoimmune conditions.

[8:33] Why are women more at risk for autoimmune conditions than men?

[10:18] Dr. Danby shares some of the tools she uses in and out of her practice for measuring the effects of stress.

[11:03] Why heart rate variability is so vitally important.

[13:00] Dr. Danby explains the link between stress and the gut.

[16:55] What can we do to treat autoimmune conditions?

[20:09] How often does Dr. Danby find that they are able to successfully reverse an autoimmune condition at her practice?

[24:14] Dr. Danby walks us through what the experience is like to work with a naturopathic doctor or a functional medicine practitioner in terms of attempting to resolve an autoimmune condition.

[26:14] Dr. Danby shares more about her own personal journey with her autoimmune condition.

[28:31] The importance of working with a practitioner.

[31:30] Dr. Alison Danby’s key performance indicators!

[35:12] Where to learn more about the work Dr. Alison Danby is doing!

More About Dr. Alison Danby

Dr. Alison Danby earned her Bachelor of Science, Honors, in Biological Science degree from the University of Guelph with a major in Human Kinetics and Sports Injury Management. Before her journey led her to naturopathic medicine, she received a Bachelor of Education in secondary school mathematics and health education at the University of Exeter, UK, teaching in England and Canada for two and a half years. Dr. Danby knew she wanted something different, though, and so she returned to Canada to attend medical school but not your regular medical school. She wanted to learn proactive medicine so she completed a four-year program in Naturopathic Medicine at the Canadian College of Naturopathic Medicine (CCNM) in Toronto, Ontario.

 

Dr. Alison Danby always knew there was more to learn and more to offer her future patients, so to further her education and compliment her background in Naturopathic medicine, she delved into the world of integrative and evidence-based medicine. She completed Advanced Training in Applied Functional Medicine at the Institute of Functional Medicine. Dr. Danby believes in the life-changing effects of Naturopathic Medicine, and so for the last half-decade, she has also been a representative on the Provincial and National Associations of Naturopathic Doctors.

Sometimes when we get into the zone, where we’re feeling like a badass and working on being “successful,” we resort to this technique that for most of us, got us to where we are today which is this capacity to put our heads down and actually do the work. And while that is extremely important, I guarantee you this: no one can take it to the next level by continuing with that technique. Everyone reaches a point whether that be in their career or life where they truly need to listen to their body. And your body is going to be the one that’s going to tell you that it’s time to level up. And by ‘level up’ I mean really level up and discover that opportunity that’s out there for you to achieve with a whole new understanding of elegance and simplicity.

 

And we’ll be learning all about this from my incredible guest today, Susi Hately. Susi has a background not only as a high achiever but as a kinesiologist as well as a yoga therapist. She works with high-achieving individuals and teaches them how to really listen to their bodies and, in turn, expand past a level they never thought possible. She knows that the secret to ‘ease’ (within both our careers and life) actually exists within our own physiology.

 

What you’re going to learn today from Susi is seriously game-changing! You’re going to learn all about burn-out, leveling-up, and achieving that leveling-up through ease and simplicity. So, if you’re not finding that your journey is becoming easier as you get further along in your career, and you’re starting to feel some of that fatigue from pushing yourself day after day, then I want you to listen in to today’s episode. There’s an opportunity for all of us to make everything just a little bit easier while still achieving more.

 

Key Takeaways:

[1:17] About today’s episode and incredible guest!

[4:17] Welcoming Susi to the podcast.

[4:55] Susi provides some background on who she is and how she ended up where she is today!

[7:18] Susi unpacks the pain of burnout.

[10:53] Why burnout is not a sign of weakness, but actually a sign for opportunity.

[16:57] The concept of the elegance of achievement.

[18:47] What is literally happening from a physical perspective when Susi sees the pain of burnout in her clients?

[22:45] Reiterating some of the key pieces of wisdom that Susi has shared so far.

[24:59] Susi highlights some of the important movement patterns that are helpful in reorienting to expansion as opposed to this contracting/pounding away state we often find ourselves in.

[28:47] Susi shares how she creates balance in her day.

[33:19] How we can say ‘no’ in an elegant way and be assertive with your needs.

[37:25] Susi’s methodology for addressing burnout with her clients.

[45:22] Taking a break in order to recover will not slow you down. In reality, it accelerates you!

[49:40] Susi’s KPIs.

[53:30] Where to find Susi online.

[54:05] My challenge to you all this week.

More About Susi Hately

Susi helps successful executives and entrepreneurs recover and get back on their game, regain clarity of mind, get better rest, and to finally feel like themselves again!

 

She is a best-selling author and has created two programs that were studied at the University of Calgary — Cancer Recovery and Idiopathic Pulmonary Fibrosis. She has also published and produced ten best-selling books and video series to support individuals with their healing recovery.

 

Susi’s work with entrepreneurs and executives began with referrals from medical doctors and sleep specialists. All of her clients were hard drivers who pushed symptoms down thinking they were getting in the way of their success. Her specialty is working with these clients — who are some of the most deeply logical, non-feeling type of people — learn to feel and understand that their symptoms are their body’s communication system; that they aren’t a sign that they are getting old or breaking down. She teaches her clients that you can learn to decode the symptoms — and through that, you will regain your focus, your sense of mental clarity, your power, and your leadership!
