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.

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!

BADASS FUEL — Fuel for Badass Women
Scientifically Supported Ingredients | Support, Not Replacement | Non-GMO
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. Learn more or order the products yourself by visiting BadassFuel.com!
CALL TO ACTION
It is so, so crucial to listen to your body! Especially when it comes to burnout. You’ve got to listen in and really feel what’s going on. My challenge to you this week is to not only listen to your body but to take action on it! Because it’s so difficult to expand as an entrepreneur if you are caught up and closed off from the messages your body is sending you. And be sure to follow-up with us on The Entrepology Podcast Facebook page — because when you’re accountable, you’re helpable!
