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.

Feb 18, 2020

I feel like we hear a lot about the word ‘intention,’ especially as we get into the new year. Everyone’s talking resolutions and then the evolution of the resolution and the intentions behind that… But honestly, it’s all just vernacular until you actually put it into practice.

 

My guest today, Adrienne Enns, is an author and the Chief Joy Curator at May You Know Joy. Her area of expertise and her passion in life is helping individuals actually live a life filled with intention. It doesn’t matter how busy you are, how many kids you have, or how many companies you are running, being able to walk into any given moment with a level of intentionality doesn’t take time — it simply takes practice. And this is what Adrienne’s mission in life is all about; to teach us how to engage in any given moment with intentionality as we move toward being able to live a life of joy!

 

In today’s episode, we talk about the concept of living in the moment, how to bring your day-to-day intentions and big-picture intentions together, how to build a routine to help you get into a state of living with intentionality, and some of the key steps to take when you’re trying to reconnect with your purpose and live with more intention. Her advice is a balance between practicality and inspirational, and I know you’re going to love her as much as I do!

About a year ago I had an opportunity to attend an event along with twenty members of our Mastermind Group. We were in Florida and had an incredible three-day transformational experience otherwise known as the Powerful Living Experience! This three-day event allowed us to truly unpack and explore the mindset pieces that were holding us back as entrepreneurs, to help us envision where we wanted to go, and to create tangible steps to fill in the gaps in-between.

 

This incredible event was created and hosted by my dear friend and our guest for the podcast, David Bayer! And I cannot think of anyone better than him to lead us through a conversation around consciousness, mindset, and the limiting beliefs that are holding us back. David is an accomplished entrepreneur and has so many powerful nuggets of wisdom around how we, as entrepreneurs, can start to apply our mindset and leverage the technology of our brains to be even bigger and better in this world!

If I asked you, ‘What brings pleasure to your life?’ how would you answer? Would you have a series of answers ready to go or would you just look at me with a blank stare? Wherever you are on this spectrum, my guest today is speaking to you!

 

Dr. Jordin Wiggins a naturopathic doctor, a very dear colleague of mine, and someone who is immensely passionate about bringing pleasure back into the lives of women! And we’re not just talking women’s health today, we’re talking about the passionate side of women’s health — the side we rarely have the opportunity to speak openly about. On top of that, we also discuss how neither of those things can be possible without first having the fundamentals of pleasure in place in our lives. These fundamentals can sometimes mean having a glass of wine or someone offering to do the dishes. But, in either case, if having a different type of year is what you want in 2020, I guarantee that listening to the wisdom of Dr. Jordin Wiggins is going to make all the difference for you!
