13. Energy and How You Can Increase Yours with Maddie Penko

13. Energy and How You Can Increase Yours with Maddie Penko

About this episode
In this episode of The Notable Woman Podcast, I chat with Health Coach Maddie Penko about energy stealers and how you can increase your energy. Maddie is a gem of a health coach, and I met her in Jenn Scalia’s Little Black Business Book, an excellent online resource for women in business. Maddie’s light and sense of fun shine through in every post, and we started chatting outside the group. I’ve done several of her free challenges and am in her free health group. I like Maddie because she isn’t afraid to tell you where you could be improving your health with some of her signature sass, but at the same time, you feel loved and supported. She’s like that older sister (although obviously, she’s younger than me!) who has caught you borrowing her killer heels for the last time.

When Maddie and I first chatted about the focus of this episode, I was so excited to hear she was focusing on energy. I know as a professional boss woman who also is mama to a tiny mischief maker, energy is a huge problem for me. Having avenues to increase my energy without bathing in Red Bull is much more the way I want to go. Listen in to get Maddie’s insight in this interview and definitely download her free guide on energy stealers!

10. Let’s Talk About Burnout with Mikayla Colthirst-Reid

About this episode
When Mikayla Colthirst-Reid first reached out to me and said she wanted to talk about burnout, I couldn’t have been happier. I know that burnout is a huge problem for me, and in fact, when Mikayla and I did this interview, I was just going into my biggest burnout of the year. I had been burning the candle at both ends so much that I just burned right out. I could barely do anything for a month and just got back into it. I think you’ll enjoy Mikayla’s laid back nature and great conversation on a topic that I think affects all notable women. Enjoy!

When a situation comes up where that boundary is being pushed, you’ve got to stand up for yourself because at the end of the day, if you’re burned out, you’re of no use to anybody you wanted to be really useful for.
