Today I am joined by Racheal Cook! Racheal is a serial entrepreneur, the host of the popular Promote Yourself to CEO Podcast, a best-selling author, and a mother of three. Over the last 10 years, she has helped thousands of female entrepreneurs design predictably profitable businesses without the hustle and burnout of doing “all the things.” She is incredibly passionate about helping women entrepreneurs break through the feast-or-famine cycle to create predictably profitable businesses.
In this episode, we have a super compelling conversation around what it takes to actually build a significant business (a business in the upper six or seven figures) while working only 25 hours a week! What Racheal has discovered about this topic is that there is one, single decision you need to make — and she has broken it all down for us today! These are the sustainable success strategies you need to be aware of as the CEO of your business.
I am so excited for you all to have the opportunity to hear from Racheal. She knows her stuff and she gets straight to the point in this episode! I promise you: your life will not be the same on the other side of this conversation!

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 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 BadassFuel.com!

Let us know over on The Entrepology Collective and on Instagram @DrMeghanWalker! We’re going to be running a poll and posing some interesting questions so don’t miss out!
“We’re seeing a huge rise of burnout for women entrepreneurs. In fact, I would say it’s the #1 reason why women quit their business.” — Racheal Cook
“Being the CEO isn’t just about doing the work that you love to do. It’s about being able to steer the ship of your business forward so that you can help more people without burning yourself out.” — Racheal Cook
“We know — especially when it comes to healing, to helping, to coaching — that results don’t happen in a singular session. They happen when there’s commitment and … consistency.” — Racheal Cook
“This is bigger than me and it’s bigger than just my clients. It’s about redefining the way that we work and the way that companies are built from the ground up so that we can all create the companies that we wish we had jobs in when we were starting out.” — Racheal Cook
“I drive a five-year-old minivan. … I really don’t care about having a flashy car. … What I care about is … that I now have 12 women who work on my team and they make incredible money and none of them work more than 30 years a week. … And that’s impact.” — Racheal Cook
“I try to stay out of those lower-level tasks as much as possible because the only way I can move this ship forward is if I’m staying focused on the things that I am the best at and that drive value for my business.” — Racheal Cook
