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!

“Even though [the podcasting landscape] seems like it is saturated, it’s just starting to blossom.” — David Pérez
“Think of the long-term gain because a podcast is not like a Facebook ad. … You’re [not] going to be getting conversions after a week or two weeks or a month. This is going to take you at least a year to start seeing results.” — David Pérez
“Creating content is not an ‘end,’ it is a means to an end. … You should constantly be adding value to your audience.” — David Pérez
“Your audience is always changing. The type of clients you had a year ago are not the same people that you have now. They don’t have the same problems [or] the same needs. So, … you’re going to be constantly updating what you know and what you’re offering.” — David Pérez
“Creating a podcast is a way to self-reflect. It’s a way to reflect on your own practice because you have to be constantly analyzing what you’re doing, what you’re thinking, the approaches you have, and the changes in the market.” — David Pérez
“It takes time, 1) to build an audience, and 2) to develop the skills you need to run a podcast show.” — David Pérez
“Start earlier.” — David Pérez
“Let yourself be yourself. Allow yourself to make mistakes. There’s no other way to improve.” — David Pérez
