The Nourished Nervous System Podcast

Episode 33 - Prioritizing Self Care for Parents and Entrepreneurs with Heidi Schalk Hosted by Kristen Timchak          

Show Notes

What do parenting and being an entrepreneur have in common?  Both can have fuzzy boundaries around when you are truly on and off.  Both can be all consuming endeavors that make it difficult to easily take time for yourself. 

The thing is, in order to show up fully as a parent or an entrepreneur, self care needs to be a non-negotiable.   In order to avoid burn out, you need to find that time for yourself even if it feels like it doesn't exist. 

In this week's episode I talk with Heidi Schalk about this.  Heidi is  a business strategy and leadership coach, author, speaker, and host of the Be S.H.E Podcast (Be Seen. Be Heard. Be Empowered.).  She has been featured on FOX,  ABC, NBC, CBS and The Daily Herald and has been named One of the Top 30 Inspiring Entrepreneurs to Look Out for in 2024 by The NYC Journal.  She has spent the past 5 years helping women achieve their goals and build 6 figure businesses they love through her M.O.N.E.Y Mastery System.

Heidi works with female entrepreneurs and gives them the tools and strategies to confidently build successful, online businesses, on their own terms, so they can create their dream life for themselves and loved ones.  She empowers women to be seen and heard so they can make a lasting impact on others in the world with their message and their story.

Heidi has two children ages 14 & 13 who were the reason and catalyst behind starting her entrepreneurial journey.
