13: Can An Entrepreneur Run a Business, Stay Sane, and Be Fit at the Same Time?

July 6th, 2017

Episode description

Today Toni Carey and I talk about staying sane while also running a business and the common denominator is some kind of movement. Although we talk primarily about running (and yoga), it doesn’t have to be about running specifically. Toni is the founder of Black Girls Run - a hugely popular movement with running groups all over the nation. She shares with us how she started and built a community, the importance of social exercise and we both talk about the the dips (periods of destruction or crises) and the highs, (growth stages) of life in general. Toni has some tips for those of you who want to run but can’t seem to fall in love with it. Hint it doesn’t mean you have to run: but she has ideas for both sides. 


I also want to thank Ralph Rivera  - a friend, an owner of three businesses, and the co-host of the podcast Carbon Based Units  - this is a great podcast for entrepreneurs and marketers - they talk about everything. The reason I want to thank him is that when I started recording this particular interview, I had a feeling something was awry but what did I do? I carried on with it and did nothing. At the end, I discovered the input wasn’t set properly and the audio was horrible. Ralph to the rescue. Thank you Ralph. It’s good having friends who want to help. and the lesson? be a better listener of your gut. Always.
