Today we are talking about a subject matter that is particularly important to me personally and that is the idea and notion of leadership. I believe that there is a significant deficit of leadership in our world, our country, and our communities right now — and I believe that entrepreneurs are in a very unique position to step into that role.

 

Joining me in this conversation is the incredible Dani Kagan. Dani is co-founder of City MOGULS, a platform that celebrates, educates, and connects innovative entrepreneurs to inspire great leaders. She is also someone who has helped pull me outside of my own comfort zone when she invited me to walk down the runway at one of her events!

 

In this episode, Dani and I have an amazing conversation! We talk about the essence of leadership, the role of entrepreneurs, how leadership and entrepreneurship come together, and Dani’s personal journey as an entrepreneur with City MOGULS; from how they got started as an events company to curating an incredible community and launching a membership on the other side.


There are so many gems of wisdom jammed into this episode and I’m so excited for you to join this conversation with Dani Kagan!

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.

As women, we are sitting on a goldmine of capacity but we never have the conversations that unlock our inner goddess. This conversation kick starts the unlocking process by identifying the blocks we women face and puts forth strategies that enable us to embrace our divine feminine.

 

This is the third time I have invited Dr. Stephanie Estima to be a guest on the show. I continue to ask her because she has a wealth of knowledge regarding women’s health and wellness. Dr. Stephanie shares the essential points from her new book, The Betty Body: A Geeky Goddess' Guide to Intuitive Eating, Balanced Hormones, and Transformative Sex. Her unique perspective is supported by all aspects of being female including how women are affected by the stark contrast of attempting to negotiate our way through the patriarchal, male-based systems in place today.

 

Be sure to tune in for this episode as we dive deep into how women can take control of their physical, mental, emotional, and spiritual health. We discuss intuitive eating, how to listen to our bodies on a cellular level to feed them to contribute to our divine state, and navigating through our multidimensional operating system that we are only on the brink of understanding how to utilize.

 

Key Takeaways:

[3:48] Stephanie was driven to disseminate her information in a way a brick and mortar clinic couldn’t, so she went online.

[6:04] After transitioning from a physical practice, Stephanie had to grieve for a little while.

[7:05] Stephanie started the Better! podcast and is ready to “birth her book baby.”

[8:50] The premise of The Betty Body book is you are already a dream girl who is on the road to self-actualization.

[11:52] For females, a ketogenic diet can be an effective tool against brain fog or chronic low-grade inflammation.

[15:15] What is intuitive eating and how does it play into daily health at a cellular level?

[20:08] Women who try to fit into a patriarchal, male-based system do so to their detriment.

[23:43] The importance of a female-based morning routine.

[26:56] Women have more anxiety during the twilight hours. An evening ritual can alleviate stress and increase longevity.

[29:55] Advice about orgasms on popular media often excludes female needs.

[32:39] Being a woman is not a curse!

[35:50] Stephanie shares the best time for women to ponder critical decisions.

[39:00] Three tips for women to heighten intuition with self and care for their bodies in a whole new way.

[42:23] Negative self-talk is dangerous.

[43:51] Stephanie’s book pick, Breath is a must-read.

[45:18] Stephanie’s favorite health hack.

[46:45] Stephanie’s purpose is to help women heal their feminine energy.

[47:55] The genetic and environmental aspects of being an entrepreneur.

Feb 9, 2021

Today we are discussing a subject matter we have never discussed on The Entrepology Podcast before and I’ve got to say, I think we covered it super well and really thoroughly!

 

My guest, Stephanie Massey, is a cancer survivor, a mother, a wife, a writer, and the daughter of a breast cancer survivor. She is also a certified cannabis educator. And what we’re talking about today is all things cannabis! How do we use it medicinally? What has been the evolution of it becoming regulated in a Canadian market? How can we leverage it in our every day lives? And how do we move beyond the stigma surrounding it from the war on drugs, and instead, into the mindset of using it as a purposeful tool?

 

Be sure to tune in for this episode as we unpack cannabis; from the ins and outs of getting started with it, its role on our health and our endocannabinoid system, to how we can incorporate in a greater wellness plan, and the physiology behind how it can impact our mental, physical, and psychosocial health.

 

Key Takeaways:

[24:00] The spectrum of influence that cannabis can have in the areas of health and wellness.

[28:05] Not a quick fix: why you need to have patience (and curiosity) when it comes to exploring cannabis.

[31:49] Cannabis is not the end-all-be-all solution: why you need to incorporate cannabis as part of a greater wellness plan and not only use cannabis.

[33:40] The non-medical side of cannabis: why you may want to try it recreationally and how you can navigate this space.

[38:02] What makes a more “chilled out” cannabis product vs. a more “energetic” one? How do you find out what works for you?
