So, it’s kind of cool when I have the opportunity to interview a guest who really is the confluence of the three things we focus on in this podcast; your business, your health, and the mindset that enables you to have a progressive impact.
My guest today, Andrea Donsky, is the founder of Naturally Savvy and has been an entrepreneur in the health space for over 20 years. She is a respected Health Expert and has appeared as a Healthy Living Expert on TV and radio across North America. She also co-hosts Naturally Savvy Radio, a weekly podcast, on RadioMD. Her newest venture, Morphus, is a movement that empowers women to move through perimenopause and menopause with grace, grit, and spark.
Today, we have what I can only describe as an eclectic interview; We talk partnerships, menopause, and bio-individuality as it pertains to our diets and healthcare regimes. Most importantly however, we integrate all of these pieces together to really paint a clear picture as to why your health, your mindset, and your business ultimately are the perfect coming together of your capacity for contribution in this world.

BADASS FUEL — Fuel for Badass Women
Scientifically Supported Ingredients | Support, Not Replacement | Non-GMO
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 to 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 BadassFuel.com!
CALL TO ACTION
What are you doing to take ownership of your age? Let us know by following up with us on The Entrepology Collective — because when you’re accountable, you’re helpable!
“A long time leading up to it, I was very embarrassed about being 50. … It took me a while to get there, but once I … heard a quote from Oprah saying that any woman that hides her age … is hiding all of their experiences. And I was like, aha! … I’m done. I’m going to own it! And now I tell everyone that I’m 50!” — Andrea Donsky
“I’ve learned that I can’t do it all. I’ve also learned that I’m really good at some things and really awful at other things — and I’ve learned to accept that and have people help me to fill in those gaps.” — Andrea Donsky
“I listen to a lot of podcasts and a lot of experts who say you should have your entire day planned out but I’m going to tell you: I actually don’t.” — Andrea Donsky
“We all feel like when we’re going through certain things we think that we’re alone, but we’re not alone — and I think that’s the most important thing for us; knowing that there is a community of us who are going through the same things.” — Andrea Donsky
“I don’t want anybody anymore — women, men, whether it’s our partner, whether it’s us going through it — to be embarrassed. I am so done with the embarrassment of going through menopause. …I want us all to understand that we can talk about it freely when we embrace it.” — Andrea Donsky
“No one diet suits everyone.” — Andrea Donsky
