“Today’s guest is a Naturopathic doctor who practices here in Ontario. What is so fundamentally unique about what she has built is that her business is founded upon the notion of intention and female empowerment. Dr. Michelle Peris, ND leads her business initiatives and entrepreneurial spirit from intent, her spirit, and what feels right — in a way and with a bravery that I wish more people would look at and embrace. With her, it is not about putting out something perfect, but instead, putting out something meaningful into the world. As a result, she has built a clinic and a tribe of women who follow her — as they should!

Today’s interview was about health and how to create a vision and intention for our business — and the actual exercises we need to go through to make that happen. We take a look at balancing the need to have a vision for where we’re going while maintaining a plan for execution that keeps us grounded and moving forward. We also talked vision boards, health practices, and daily routines. This is a gem for anyone who knows and feels and wants to infuse those elements into their business!” Dr. Meghan Walker – The Entrepology Podcast
