If we do our job today… you will fall asleep! Today, I am joined by my colleague and very dear friend, Dr. Leigha Saunders. Dr. Leigha is a naturopathic doctor with a particular focus in her practice around women’s hormonal health and how it influences their sleep. 

In this episode, Dr. Leigha is going to get into the specifics of how balancing our hormones and balancing our lifestyle will have a direct impact on our ability to fall asleep. And trust me when I say this episode will be anything but a snooze — you will learn the key pieces that we need to put in place for better sleep, the things we’re doing right now that are disrupting our ability to get a good night’s rest, and the steps you can take to begin putting everything in place for the best sleep of your life! And, most importantly, you’ll learn about why sleep is actually the single most important secret weapon in optimizing all areas of our life. As an entrepreneur or go-getter, you’re not going to want to miss this one!

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! 


So many of us are simply okay with having poor sleep and pushing through it. But when we’re working from a foundation of poor sleep, we’re never going to be able to achieve our optimal state of performance in life. Our health and overall happiness actually start with sleep. 

After listening to this episode with Dr. Leigha Saunders, how are you going to make the commitment toward better sleep? Are you going to make sure your bedroom is a sanctuary for decompressing and relaxing? Try putting your phone on airplane mode? Have less screen-time two hours before bed? Let us know by following up on The Entrepology Collective! 


“My mission is to really help women sleep better at night so that they can do what sets their soul on fire during the day.” — Dr. Leigha Saunders 

“Sleep is the ultimate gauge for how our nervous system is functioning and responding to our environment and our internal stresses. Typically, if things are well-managed in all aspects, then we sleep easily.” — Dr. Leigha Saunders 

“We actually have way more control over our sleep than we give ourselves credit for.” — Dr. Leigha Saunders 

“We’re led to believe that if we sacrifice our sleep we can be more productive during the day. … But there is no other productivity hack … compared to sleep. There is nothing that can do what sleep can do to restore … all aspects of health.” — Dr. Leigha Saunders
