Today I am taking you through a framework that I have been working on for the better part of the last five years. This framework encompasses and represents what Entrepology truly is all about — the investigation and study of what it takes to be a high-performing entrepreneur — where I’ve found that the confluence for this existing is in understanding and breaking apart the mindset of what drives people to create, their capacity to take risks, their health, and of course their inherent entrepreneurial skills that bring it all together. 

 

What I am taking you all through today is a list of eight categories of things that, together, encompass the “Entrepology Life System” (or ELS for short). All of these pieces are important considerations that we need to be aware of and have in balance that will help enable us to live a successful, fulfilling life. 

 

Key Takeaways:

[5:20] I’m interested in hearing from you! Let me know your thoughts on these eight categories or if you think there are more categories to add over on my Instagram @DrMeghanWalker! 

[5:40] Element #1: Knowing your purpose or having a sense of purpose.

“Having a fulfilling life [or] winning at life is about more than just how much money you make.” — Meghan Walker 

 

“Purpose, in my mind, is the confluence of things we’re good at, things we’re passionate about, and things that enable us to have a contribution.” — Meghan Walker 

 

“Impact is different from your purpose. You can get up every single day and live your purpose, but then the question is: What type of impact do you want to have? Are you having the impact that you want to be having?” — Meghan Walker 

 

“Impact is where our purpose gets to come to life. It’s the tangible results of that purpose.” — Meghan Walker 

 

“When you’re clear on the things that you want in each of these categories, you’re also clear on the things you’re willing to cut out. … This is your life. This is your opportunity to build things with intention.” — Meghan Walker 

 

“There isn’t one particular area that is necessarily more important but there also isn’t one particular area that we can do without.” — Meghan Walker

Description: 

Today I am joined by an incredible naturopathic doctor, Lori Bouchard! Lori has dedicated most of her career over the last 12 years to working with patients with cancer. But she doesn’t help simply manage their care; she helps them build a life that enables them to thrive and co-exist with cancer. 

 

A large portion of Lori’s work is to change her patients’ perspectives on what it means to have cancer, live in a meaningful way, and add health despite simultaneously managing a disease. Lori truly has an incredible approach and holistic capacity to look at health in the face of a disease that is going to touch all of us in some capacity throughout our lives. 

 

In this episode, Lori shares how to live your best life with cancer, what you can do today to take measures toward preventing cancer (especially if it runs in your family), how she helps her patients co-exist and thrive alongside cancer, her philosophy around taking an integrative approach with the management of cancer, and how epigenetics play a massive role in this entire conversation.

My underlying core belief in life and all that I do as an entrepreneur is that when people have their health, they can change the world. 

 

The conversation that we had today with Dr. Lori Bouchard was incredibly enlightening and important. What were your key takeaways from this episode? Let us know over on my Instagram @DrMeghanWalker! 

 

Tweetables: 

 

“Your destiny [isn’t cancer.] There are so many things that you can do to take a hold of how the environment is playing a role in turning [certain] genes on and off.” — Lori Bouchard 

 

“[Cancer] is 5-10% genetic ... but then really 90% of it is the epigenetic part to the story – what we choose to eat every day, what toxicities we are around, even the people that we hang out with. If we are around really toxic, negative people, that is just as bad for our health vs someone who eats Big Macs every day.” — Lori Bouchard 

 

“We all have cancer cells. That’s the reality of it. … So we have to look at how our immune system is focusing and getting rid of these abnormal cells every single day.” — Lori Bouchard 

 

“[My] mission [is] to help people realize our [bodies are] phenomenal and amazing. My purpose is really spreading that message and helping people realize how powerful they are.” — Lori Bouchard

Today we are talking about one of my most favorite things to discuss how to be an audacious woman! One of the key qualities that I’ve noticed that distinguish entrepreneurs who are absolutely killing it from those who say they’ve “already tried everything” is the willingness to step outside the norm, a willingness to be uncomfortable, and the ability to take bold risks.

 

My guest today, Chana Ross, is someone whom I deeply respect for her audaciousness, risk-taking personality, and level-headedness. She is definitely no stranger to making bold decisions, stepping into discomfort, and saying, “Hell yes!” when an opportunity comes her way. She is a pelvic health physiotherapist, clinic owner, business coach, podcast host, mother of four, and a pioneer of the virtual practice space.

 

In this episode, we unpack every aspect of what it takes to be an audacious woman. Chana shares her personal story and career journey, how to know when it is the right time to make an uncomfortable choice, how to live life on your own terms, how to become more decisive and trust yourself, and the key pieces you need to put in place to become more confident, bold, and audacious!

CALL TO ACTION

Confidence is not a quality that you are simply given; it is always something that is earned. It is a byproduct of two steps: 1) Making the decision to be courageous; 2) As a result of that courageousness, you develop competence. Competence is what gives us that confidence.
