We recently took a trip to New Orleans—just the two of us—and decided to record an episode on self care because if you don’t take care of yourself, then how can you expect to be boss? We’re talking about building a healthy foundation, fitness, food, beauty, boundaries, and investing in yourself as much (or even more) as you do your business.
