    209 | Talk About Single Parenting + Entrepreneurship with Heidi Schalk

    209 | Talk About Single Parenting + Entrepreneurship with Heidi Schalk

    As the product of a single-parent home, I cannot believe we’ve never touched on this topic in almost four years of the podcast! Since I am child-free by choice, I invited my new friend Heidi Schalk on the show to chat all about it – and chat we did! We covered this topic and many others in this week’s episode.
    Heidi believes children should actively participate in their parents’ goals and aspirations. She sees this as an opportunity to teach them about goal-setting, teamwork, and responsibility. By including them in the family’s journey towards success, children learn valuable skills and how to contribute positively to society.
    Today’s guest is Heidi Schalk, a single parent and entrepreneur who has navigated the challenges of running a business while raising her children. She transitioned from being a stay-at-home mom to building a successful business, overcoming her fears and mindset obstacles. With a background in health and wellness, including personal training and bodybuilding, Heidi’s journey into entrepreneurship was driven by a desire to create a sustainable income while being present for her family. Her experience in balancing work and family life offers valuable insights and practical advice for single parents seeking personal and professional growth. As a business coach, Heidi brings a unique perspective to the conversation, sharing her wisdom and experiences to inspire others on their own journeys.

    206 | Talk About Rest and Reset for 2024

    206 | Talk About Rest and Reset for 2024

    Do you feel like you need a reset after this past year? I get it - 2023 was a wild ride for me too. In this week's episode of Talk with Renee Dalo, I share my best tips for resting, reflecting, and resetting during the holiday season so you start 2024 feeling refreshed.
    In a truly hot take, I suggest putting goal-setting on hold and instead using December to recharge through meditation, journaling, gentle walks in nature, and even *gasp* doing nothing. I know, the overachiever in us hates that idea! But rushing into ambitious New Years plans without slowing down first often backfires. January is soon enough to dream big dreams for the year ahead.
    To help with that, inside my "Better" membership we devote the entire month to intentional, thoughtful goal-setting and vision boarding. Then we check in monthly so you stay on track through 2024! The point is that hurriedly forcing goals right now may not serve your future self. So be "selfish" and make time for self-care this season!  You deserve this gift. Wishing you rest and renewal during the remainder of 2023, my friend!
