A lawyer and self-care — you’ve probably never put these two concepts together but they are the exact two concepts that we are bringing together today in my conversation with Andrea Henry!
Andrea Henry is a lawyer and an entrepreneur who leads her own firm. Andrea is approachable, knowledgeable, and someone I have often turned to for years and send my clients to consistently.

We also talk about how to scale your business and make more money with less time, as well as all of the biggest mistakes that we see small business owners make and what they can do to avoid these major mistakes that lead to heartache and stress down the road.

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.
