Never sacrifice self care in pursuit of your mission, because if we don’t take care of ourselves, you won’t have the energy you need to give.
On this episode of the Circuit of Success, Brett Gilliland welcomes entrepreneur, Vector Marketing Division Manager, and Co-founder of Elevated Fitness + Nutrition Cathy Christen.
Brett and Cathy sit down to talk about her experiences as an entrepreneur and her philosophies on business, health and giving back to others.
Bio courtesy of Facebook:
I have been a sales & entrepreneurship coach for over 15yrs. When I started my first business, I ignored taking care of myself in order to put in the hours “I needed to” in order to build the business, and saw my health and energy quickly spiral downward. I wanted to have something of my own in order to have the time and means to travel and be with my family. Instead I experienced the opposite. I was a slave to my business, I wasn't happy, and was very discouraged as to how I would create the life I wanted.
About 10 yrs ago, I made a decision to focus on improving my energy levels beginning with my health. I learned how to make better versions of the foods I enjoyed eating (found easier ways to incorporate more of the right nutrients in my diet), and made it a priority to stay active. Just that change made a dramatic impact on my confidence and self-fulfillment. As soon as that happened, everything around me felt the impact.
I became very intentional about protecting my energy: physical, emotional, mental and spiritual. My business soared and my personal life began to thrive! It's been an incredible journey. I have now produced over $40million dollars direct sales, and was able to create 6 figure earnings annually for over a decade while traveling 6-8 months out of the year.
Whether someone's goal is to travel the world, stay home with their kids, or just have the energy to really pursue their mission in their profession or in their community, my goal is to equip others with the tools they need to have the energy to live the life of their dreams!
