Episode 59: What we all need is a little bit of energy with Keziah Robinson

Episode 59: What we all need is a little bit of energy with Keziah Robinson

July 16, 2020

You shouldn’t have to do everything and now you don’t. Running a business is an exhausting task. There is so much you have to do when you’re the Chief Cook and Bottle Washer. There are bound to be things that fall through the cracks. When you’ve got a chronic challenge, it makes it all that much more difficult. So what do you do?

First, you need to understand that you don’t always have the same levels of energy and making sure your body is at it’s best is important. How do you do that? A tip for starting on this journey is to actually see what you do with your energy and see how you feel doing it. Then you can sort of match what takes the most energy. For me, I know I'm, I could get up and go from five o'clock in the morning, until about one o'clock in the afternoon. And then I'm toast, and there's nothing I can do that's gonna be worthy of letting anybody else see, you know, from like, one to four, and I'll take a nap or I'll sit back and watch some television and I'll do some, then about four o'clock, I've got some more energy and I can work again for another couple of hours. But if I try to push through from that one to four, and there are times like today I have to do that. My brain gets foggy. I go, I'm not remembering this. I'm not using the right words. And so I've learned to try if there's something that's very important to do it early in the morning.

We will spend the next half hour or so talking with Keziah Robinson about all things energy and how to maintain ours while keeping up with our business success. Take a listen!

Episode 60: Ways to Change Eating Habits Even When We Resist with Suz Carpenter

Episode 60: Ways to Change Eating Habits Even When We Resist with Suz Carpenter

July 2, 2020

Three things in life – your health, your mission, and the people you love. That’s it. Naval Ravikant

If you’re like me (even though my health is not very good), you become resistant at the mention of healthy eating. Bean sprouts and radishes – yuck. Give me a good ole hamburger any day. Right? Yet, the more I learn about healthy lifestyles and chronic illness, the more I hear about eating the right way. Like a carrot dangling in front of the horse to get him to move, health and feeling good is my carrot. 

Of course, when we don’t feel good, our business suffers as well. That’s #2 of the quote above. Our mission is wanting to have the best business and doing the most to help others that we can. Without being healthy ourselves, that makes it harder to complete #2.

Finally, I want to be around for the people I love. I want to be able to do things with and for them – not just having them wait on me endlessly because I can’t do anything for myself. That’s #3.

In today’s conversation with Suz Carpenter, I had (and hope you will too) an AHA moment. You don’t have to stop eating everything you love, just start one step at a time by adding in one good thing and maybe not eating as much of one bad thing. She was a down-to-earth proponent of living a healthy lifestyle and also shared with us how these changes can help our business. As well, we talked about some of the things she herself (also a chronic illness warrior) has done to help her business, when perhaps all she really wanted to do was Take.A.Nap. This is a great show today.

Episode 58: The systems that help you grow from stagnant to success with Sandee Rodriguez

June 4, 2020

Even on a good day, life can be overwhelming – especially if you have some form of chronic illness. And when you are the chief, cook and bottle washer for your small business, balancing all those hats can send you right to the corner screaming. Going through your mind is probably something like “I have to do this and this and this. How am I going to do it all?” Guess what, nothing gets done.

That’s when having processes and strategies in place to help you through that panicky feeling of bouncing off the walls. Join us today as Sandee Rodriquez and Nancy talk about how you can go from barely breathing to getting the most out of your day.

Episode 42: Disabled to ENabled with Jessie Ace

Episode 42: Disabled to ENabled with Jessie Ace

May 28, 2020

“Start by doing what’s necessary; then do what’s possible; and suddenly you are doing the impossible.” -Francis of Assisi

According to Business.com, self-employment is a very popular choice among people with disabilities. The Small Business Administration reported that 12.2 percent of the general population chose self-employment, and 14.3 percent of people with disabilities started businesses recently. Most of them have not lived their entire lives with their illness, but somewhere along the line they have been injured or received a diagnosis for something that has made their life different. More difficult. Something extra that they have had to learn to deal with along the way. And when you add owning and running a business life can become much more than just challenging. 

Just like not being a successful business owner out of the gate, managing a disability or chronic illness takes time to figure out and to get a grip on. And for some, that never happens. But for those who have the determination and the will power to accomplish what they truly want, these women business owners not only survive but thrive!

Today’s guest, Jessie Ace, is one of those that has it figured out. Listen in as she talks about the challenges and the accomplishments she has had throughout her years with multiple sclerosis.

Okay, um, so, okay, so I've kind of mastered this this thing because sometimes so having multiple sclerosis is really unpredictable. Sometimes you can wake up and feel like you’ve run three marathons in your sleep, and sometimes you can feel kind of okay, but it's never like, Oh, I feel amazing today. - Jessie Ace

Episode 57: Just because you have a Chronic Illness doesn’t mean you can’t be active with Lyn Lindbergh

Episode 57: Just because you have a Chronic Illness doesn’t mean you can’t be active with Lyn Lindbergh

May 14, 2020

Sometimes monsters are invisible, and
sometimes demons attack you from the inside.
Just because you cannot see the claws and the teeth
does not mean they aren’t ripping through me.
Pain does not need to be seen to be felt.

For someone with one of the “hidden” chronic illnesses, you certainly have heard at least a few times in your life “You don’t look like there’s anything wrong with you.” Or, “All you have to do is take this magic elixir and you be 100% well and feel like you did when you were in your 20s.” Am I right? So often those of us who have some sort of medical challenge run into people in the health and wellness field that sell programs, powders, solutions that are “guaranteed” to make you well again. They quote statistics and recommendations by well known sports stars or doctors in a field (usually ones that have some vested interest in what is being sold). They very well may believe totally in what they are selling, but when dealing with people who have medical issues, those tools and strategies may not work in the way they are supposed to.

According to today’s guest, Lyn Lindbergh, the owner of the health organization and book from Couch to Active, there is still hope for those who have the daily battle of pain.

You're not alone but it feels alone and how do you do all that? And really, we could only do what we can do today, right? We really only have each moment of each day. Your biggest work is kind of figuring out like, what kind of mental and emotional energy do you have in this moment to do what you can with the resources you have today? And then leaving the rest of that mental emotional energy if there's any left to what can I do to show compassion to myself? To not fight against my reality, not think of myself as a mistake or think of myself as a failure or think of myself as less than. 

Listen in to this fascinating chat on health, wellness, personal and business. Then see if there might be, just might be a light at the end of the tunnel.
