    Suzy Holman on Finding Your Zone of Genius & the Freedom You Unlock When You Allow Yourself to be...YOU!

    Suzy Holman on Finding Your Zone of Genius & the Freedom You Unlock When You Allow Yourself to be...YOU!

    I’m going to guess that if you are a woman who uses instagram and you’re even the slightest bit entrepreneurial minded or interested in brand building, you most likely follow or at least have heard of Suzy Holman!


     


    Suzy is one of my personal favorite people to follow on Instagram because of her business and marketing strategy that she shares about for free but also because her personality is truly contagious and inspirational. I’m so excited and honored to be interviewing her today and having her share her heart, wisdom, strategy and that fun personality with you!


     


    Suzy is a multi passionate entrepreneur. She’s built multiple 6 and now 7 figure businesses, teaches and coaches other women how to grow their businesses, and most recently Suzy has been shaking up the women's wellness space with the revolutionary product, Jovi, which is a medical device that takes away menstrual cramps and other severe pain (see what I mean about multi passionate entrepreneur?!)






    Suzy is here today to help us uncover what’s deep inside: our truest selves and zone of genius! 






    Suzy has this magical power (or some might say, strength) where she is so in alignment with and confident in who she is and what she does that it makes you want nothing more than to be exactly who you were meant to be and no one else!


     


    Today Suzy will be sharing with us and teaching us:


     


    How our younger self can teach us a lot about our purpose and giftsThe importance of celebrating our true selves and how to find our “zone of genius”Her motto, “If you can envision it you can create it!”Freeing ourselves from pain and the thoughts that hold us backAnnnd more!

    Beyond Bubble Baths & Netflix: What is True Self-Care and How to Implement it into Your Daily Life

    Beyond Bubble Baths & Netflix: What is True Self-Care and How to Implement it into Your Daily Life

    You might remember a few months ago when registered nurse and Certified Aromatherapist, Holly Brandenberger (or @scienceofessentials as many of you may know her as over on Instagram), was on the show talking with us all about stress: the stress cycle, what stress actually is, how essential oils can help reduce stress and so much more. To this day it’s still one of our top most downloaded episodes, you can listen to it HERE!






    Now, 5 months later, Holly is back for a second interview with us;  this time unpacking and redefining the popular and oftentimes cringeworthy buzzword, “self-care”.






    In 2020 “self-care” rose to become a 450 billion dollar industry and with the popularity and heavy bubble bath, chocolate, and netflix binging marketing that has come along with it, the true definition of self-care has become muddy and a bit lost. Holly is here to get us back on track with true self care so we can take care of ourselves far beyond spa days and Netflix.






    In this episode, Holly...


    Unpacks the buzzword of “self-care” and all the common misconceptionsDefines what self-care really is (and what it’s not)Explains the absolute necessity of self-care and how it’s not a reward or something you need to earnShares 5 areas we can all (simply!) implement self care into every aspect of our livesPhysicalSocialMentalSpiritualEmotionalAnd more!





    If you’ve ever cringed and rolled your eyes at “self-care” or wondered what self care actually is, this episode is for you!
