Today I sat down with Samantha Gladish. Samantha is a nutritionist by background, health crusader and a renowned online entrepreneur. While I thought we were actually going to talk about health, where we went with this conversation was really getting to know the fundamentals that entrepreneurs require to be effective in this world. We broke through some of the commonly-held beliefs that hold people back in terms of being able to achieve what they want to achieve, and then we got into health from an unexpected angle, where we started to explore the connection between hormones, the birth control pill, and their collective incapacity to enable us to be our best selves.

Mentioned in This Episode:
“We have it so backward. It should be ‘be, do, have,” not, ‘have, do, be.’”
“The journey [to entrepreneurship] has been long.”
“I can only take people [whom I coach] as far as I’ve gone myself.”
“You can always choose the mindset that things aren’t going to work out, and you’ll be right.”
“I want my business to revolve around my life, not my life to revolve around my business.”
“Tracking your cycle is just as effective as going on the birth control pill.”
" You really need to have skin in the game."
