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 into 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!

What do entrepreneurship, organ meat, and George Clooney all have in common? If you’re stumped on this, I’m here to help you out! Would you believe that the common thread is my next guest?

 

James Barry is an Executive Chef to some of the largest celebrities in the world such as George Clooney, Tom Cruise, Barbra Streisand, Gerard Butler, and many more. He has had a seriously incredible career and his journey reads like an incredibly compelling memoir.

 

In our conversion together, we talk about limiting beliefs, the road less traveled, how to get skin in the game, and why all of these pieces are so relevant to our journeys as entrepreneurs. James shares how he made a shift in his career from being a chef to celebrities to creating a product that he really believes can revolutionize our health.

 

We had a truly fascinating conversation about James’ career evolution, how he created an innovative, first-of-its-kind product; how he found his true purpose and passion in life; and what it looks like to navigate this intersection of health and entrepreneurship.

More About James Barry

James Barry began his sixteen-plus years in the culinary field as a private chef. His inauguration into restaurant-style cooking came later when he was the vegan/vegetarian chef on the Vans Warped Tour, which traveled to 50 North American cities in 60 days. Upon returning to Los Angeles, James continued to be a private chef and had the fortune of cooking for celebrities such as Tom Cruise, Mariska Hargitay, George Clooney, Gerard Butler, Sean “Puffy” Combs, Barbra Streisand, and John Cusack. Not wanting to limit the audience of his healthy and tasty style of cooking, James started Wholesome2Go, a healthy, high-quality food delivery company that served under his leadership in the Los Angeles area for eight years.

 

Most recently, James launched my first functional food product, Pluck; an organ-based, all-purpose seasoning. This seasoning is the first of its kind and an amazingly easy and delicious way for people to get organ meats into their diet.

 

James also co-authored the recipes in Margaret Floyd’s book, Eat Naked, and co-authored the follow-up cookbook, The Naked Foods Cookbook. He also recently co-authored the recipes in Dr. Alejandro Junger’s book, Clean 7.

Jul 13, 2021

There are certain things that I’ve made the decision about a long time ago that I would never talk about online. One of these topics that I said I would never discuss publicly was vaccines. Can you think of a more controversial topic? I’ve done podcasts on sex, politics, and money — all of which can be fairly taboo  — but vaccines take the cake.


But today, we’re going to go there.

 

We’re going to not just discuss the current landscape of vaccines, but the idea of informed consent. How do we, as individuals, take radical responsibility for our own health? How do we make an informed decision when we’re only hearing one side of the message? This whole conversation is about informing a new way for you to think; it is not about informing what I want you to do.

 

I hope you’ll join me in pulling back the curtain on this entire discussion around vaccines.

 

Key Takeaways:

[:42] About today’s controversial topic.

[2:24] Why the discussion of vaccinations is not black and white, but in fact, grey.

[2:54] Why it is important for us to be able to have nuanced conversations around vaccines.

[4:00] Why I named this episode, “Why I got the jab and also why that’s not your business.”

[5:40] The current landscape of COVID-19 vaccinations and why I made the decision to get the jab.

[7:54] How we are alienating others in making a different type of informed consent.

[9:13] This conversation is really about: what types of questions could or should you be asking as someone willing and able to take responsibility for their own health?

[10:25] What I’ve learned as a clinician about the hesitation around getting the vaccine.

[13:11] The 30-thousand-foot view of vaccines.

[14:05] Why we ultimately need to make the best choice for ourselves on an individual level.

[15:40] What the normal vaccine development process looks like vs. the COVID-19 vaccine development process.

[16:36] Why deciding whether or not you’re going to get the vaccine is, in fact, a very nuanced perspective when you get to the ground level.

[17:31] This is a situation that requires that we have the opportunity to move forward in our decision-making from a place of informed consent.

[18:32] How to provide informed consent to patients.

[20:09] The information that we are entitled to receive in order to make an informed, consensual decision around our health.

[25:48] The most important pieces we need to clear about when it comes to vaccines.

[26:38] We need to be aware of peer pressure so that we can make autonomous decisions with respect to our health.

[27:22] Why it is imperative that we approach this situation as critical thinkers during this time.

[29:40] Most importantly: we need to stop judging others’ decisions.

[30:18] Why I felt it was important to open the door on this conversation.

24:54 Jordan Robertson — confirmation bias; making informed choices as a health consumer, headlines

My guest today, Leslie Hsu, is an entrepreneur by background and happenstance through much of her career!

What I loved about Leslie’s story is her obsession with the detail of the product she was creating and releasing into the world. It wasn’t an idea that she was rushing to market. Rather, she was being as innovative and intentional as she could with the product she was creating.

 

As entrepreneurs, there’s a time and place to move quickly and to step back and know when to take our time. The details help distinguish us in the marketplace; be sure to slow down and be intentional.

 

If you are creating something that you want to put out into the world that is going to stand the test of time, join the conversation over on The Entrepology Collective and Instagram @DrMeghanWalker to learn how you can take this vision and mission to the next level!
