So, there are a few different topics that I get jazzed up around, and until today, I wasn’t exactly sure how they were related. Firstly, the notion of conscious parenting and bringing a level of awareness to how I parent and the environment I can create for my children. And secondly, when looking at my own personal development and my clinical work, this concept of bio-hacking. These, I thought, were two different ideas and two different podcast topics — until today.
My amazing guest today, Pamela Gold, and I have a fascinating conversation around conscious parenting which soon morphed into a great conversation around balance, bio-hacking, and incorporating all of these pieces into our consciousness — both as parents and as leader-entrepreneurs.
As a parent herself, Pam has developed a program in accordance with that, but on the other end of the spectrum, she’s also the owner of HACKD Fitness, a bio-hacking gym in New York City. She’s a recovering type A workaholic who has now found peace and balance in her lifestyle. In this episode, she shares the techniques, tools, and ideas that have helped her find the perfect balance between entrepreneur and parent.
