BADASS FUEL — Fuel for Badass Women

Two years ago, someone asked me what supplements I take to maintain my health, energy, and edge — and they were surprised that I only took four things consistently. For myself and my patients, there are four basics that support — at a foundational level — nearly every system in our bodies. In my quest for the highest quality ingredients and the easiest system for consistently incorporating supplementation into my routine, I formulated and manufactured my own line of foundational supplements. Trusted for myself and my patients, and under the guidance of your own healthcare provider, I’m excited to invite you to check out our foundational product line: Badass Basics. Learn more or order the products yourself by visiting!

“Even if you own your own business; even if you self-identify as an entrepreneur, if you are in a model where you are selling your time for money, you actually just own the company that employs you, yourselfYou are in a job.” — Meghan Walker 

“Stop selling your time! Start packaging and selling your strategy so you can move out of being employed by yourself.” — Meghan Walker 

“Becoming a CEO is only a choice you can make. Choosing to invest in yourself as that CEO is a choice only you can make.” — Meghan Walker 

“The truth is: money is something that can come and go. We can build more of it. Time doesn’t work the same way. … Time is our most limited and precious resource.” — Meghan Walker 

“[Invest] in expanding your network so that you can easily and readily ask who is going to help me move to this next stage, who can I delegate this task to, [and] who can I delegate an old set of tasks to so we can move into that next stage of our evolution?” — Meghan Walker
