    Are you a Highly Sensitive Entrepreneur? With Heather Dominick

    Are you a Highly Sensitive Entrepreneur? With Heather Dominick

    Welcome to the Catalyst Conversations podcast, I’m your host Jennifer Maggiore. 
    For some of us, being in business is like eating glass every day, but that’s what it’s like being in business, right? Have you ever felt like maybe you just aren’t cut out to cope with the emotional demands of being an entrepreneur? Or if you can be successful AND spiritual? Or maybe you’ve been told that you’re “too sensitive” to hack it in business. 
    Well get ready, because you’re probably actually “highly sensitive” – a highly sensitive entrepreneur that is! 
    In this episode I talk with Heather Dominick - a woman who is impressively successful, and highly spiritual I might add. 
    She’s appeared on Lifetime Television and was published in several books including Stepping Stones to Success alongside Deepak Chopra. She’s been recognized with the 2015 Best of Manhattan Coaching Award and she's the creator of the 2014 Stevie Award winning virtual event A Course In Business Miracles®: 21-Day Discovery Series that attracted close to 6,000 registrants from around the world.
    Heather is also the founder and leader of the Highly Sensitive Entrepreneur® movement. She helps the 20% of us who are born “highly sensitive” to make sense of our feelings, strong intuition, empathy, and deep thoughts, and feelings when it comes to self-employment. She has helped thousands of clients create solid, sustainable, high level financial success building on the personality traits they once thought of as weaknesses. 
    She tells us about the coping mechanisms HSEs use – a cycle or fear, pushing and or hiding, and soothing that leaves us mentally, physically, spiritually, and financially drained. She also explains some of the strengths HSEs have, and how they’re different from entrepreneurs who are not highly sensitive. If any of this resonates listen in because you, like me, may be a Highly Sensitive Entrepreneur.

    Caring for a Community and The Challenges and Gifts in Our Traumas

    Caring for a Community and The Challenges and Gifts in Our Traumas

    Lanette Veres is truly one of my greatest inspirations. She was a top-performing banking relationship manager before she was diagnosed with a brain tumor in 1998 after months of headaches and fatigue. Despite going on to have 5 brain surgeries she founded the Gray Matters Foundation, which serves to bring a smile and hope to patients diagnosed with brain tumors around the world.
     
    We talk about:
    + the important of knowing you aren’t alone and the gifts that can come from trauma
    + the challenges she faces in caring for the brain tumor community
    + how she overcomes deficits caused by her surgeries – that aren’t the same that many of us founders experience - and doesn’t let them hold her back

    Katherine Metzalaar is a registered dietician and nutrition therapist, and founder of Brave Space Nutrition and the Body Image Badass Group. She works with clients, many of them burnt out women entrepreneurs who sacrifice themselves and their health for their businesses.

    We talk about:
    + ditching the diet mentality and unlearning years of unhealthy eating habits from childhood and messages in the media
    + what intuitive eating is and why it’s so important.
    + decreasing the stress and anxiety around our food choices
    + how healing our relationships with our bodies starts with no  longer using weight as a parameter for defining success or failure
