That's K L A V I Y O.com/holiday. Haley say what's up to fire nation and share something interesting about yourself that most people don't know.
1 (1m 43s):
Hello, fire nation. I'm so excited to be here with you guys. All right. Something that some people don't most people don't know about myself while I'm, I'm actually sure that there's a lot of things that most people don't know, but some interesting fact would be. I went from lawyer to pilates teacher to snowboard instructor before I started my business online.
0 (2m 10s):
That is something that I think a lot of people wouldn't know. It's a pretty interesting journey. And I think fire nation is going to start to make sense as we start to unravel some of Hailey's life here, which is actually where I want to segue to Haley, because you know, you have had quite the interesting journey. You didn't wake up one morning and just say like, Hey, I'm an entrepreneur. Like you took this journey to get there. And you know, you got to start as an entrepreneur in the health and holistic space in the wellness space. Talk to us about that journey. What did that look like?
1 (2m 44s):
I mean, honestly, John, it goes really far back to when I was a child. I remember actually like, this is probably like TMI, but I was with my mom and dad threw me onto the swim team when I was like five years old. And I remember like competing in my first meet. I was like five years old, literally. And I was like sitting on the toilet. Like I couldn't get it out, you know? And I was like dealing with back then, what we know is, you know, irritable bowel and all of those anxious nerves. And that's kind of how I grew up. I'm a, I'm a type, a personality. I'm a three on the Enneagram. I'm a red when it comes to colors. And so I know that I grew up as sort of like an anxious ball of nerves with an energy that I, I wanted to get out, but didn't know how to get out.
1 (3m 27s):
And I was, and I worried a lot. So my whole life, like when I go back, like 40 years ago, my whole life I was dealing with let's call it like digestive distress or uncover just to be compliant because the FDA is listening to us. And I, I played with that. My whole life, like doctors told me I couldn't eat fried food or drink caffeine or drink sugar or eat sugar or no seeds, no nuts, no corn, no bread, no wheat, no. You know, I was literally almost vegan by the age of 12 and then taking everything out of my diet where I became really malnourished, skinny, skinny, skinny, and catching every single cold flu germ allergy.
1 (4m 12s):
Because when your digestive system is a mess, then your immune system is a mess. Now I didn't know any of this back then. This is just like what was happening. But if I can tell you a story about a decade ago, I was, I had just driven back from spending the Christmas holiday with my inlet. So like, this is literally to the date almost, let's say nine years ago because my daughter is 11 now and she was two. And I know everybody takes that week off. You know, it's dead around Christmas and new year's nothing's really opening, but here's what was happening. I had just been, I had just driven back and I was sick by the way. It's a nine and a half hour drive from Boulder, Colorado to Kansas city.
1 (4m 52s):
So I was, we live in Boulder, Colorado, and they live in Kansas city. I was throwing up the entire drive home. I couldn't, yeah, it was nasty. I couldn't keep anything down. And so I picked up the phone. I had been in to the urgent care. They do the IV bags. You're dehydrated. You have a gastrointestinal virus, all the BS that I had literally been hearing for 40 years. And I picked up the phone and I called a holistic doctor. And at that moment, before I called, I found myself sitting in the middle of my stairway in my home. And I literally couldn't make it up or down. Like that's how weak I was.
1 (5m 33s):
And I had been holding my daughter. She was two at the time. And I felt like I had failed her as a mom. I was so weak. I couldn't comfort her. She was crying. She was scared. She was freaking out. And to be honest, I was crying too. I was scared. So as I said, I'd been, I had grown up with a lot of these digestive disorders. And for 40 years I had a stomach ache. I'm telling you every single, I thought it was normal. Every single day of my life. I had some type of stomach ache, gas, bloating, nausea, whatever. In my, in my, in my belly every day. The funny thing is, is my dad was a doctor. And so, you know how most people have a medicine cabinet in their house.
1 (6m 13s):
Ours was like a walk in class. We had an in the home pharmacy and like a VIP ticket into urgent care with whatever prescription we, we, we, we need it. You need a value. You need of this. I mean, it was like, and not that we were, you know, abusing it. I'm just saying we could get whatever we wanted, but I knew that a pill wasn't going to cut it this time. And I could feel in my body, my symptoms were deeper and more intense, way more intense. And then I had literally hit a breaking point. Like I said, I felt like I was failing as a mom, as a wife. I couldn't work.
1 (6m 53s):
And in the past those 40 years I was talking about my symptoms were, as I mentioned, stress-related I had, I literally had insomnia for 15 years and was taking 15 years. I was on sleep medication. I had headaches, but that's kind of manageable stuff. When you think about all right, I can take a pill and I can get rid of it. Right? So this time, this specific new year's holiday was totally different. My, my skin had started turning gray. I was exhausted to the bone and I had lost almost 20 pounds. Yeah. And if you look at my body, like I don't have 20 pounds down and worst of all, I couldn't even lift my child.
1 (7m 37s):
So I decided to get creative and I did what probably any mom would do. I went to Google, Google for the win. So I found this holistic doctor who was six miles up. He's the guy who lives six miles up this windy Boulder Canyon road, like six 30 miles to go six miles, right? I mean, 30 minutes to go six miles. He works, you know, he works two days a week, nine to one book, six months out. And this, I can't even believe he answered. And I said, I pleaded you have to see me. And I guess he heard it in my voice.
1 (8m 18s):
And two days later I was in his office and here's the moment I laid down on his table. And he checks my pulse and his tongue and my tongue, that's it. Like I literally stick out my tongue and he puts his hand on my pulse. And he says, to me, here's his medical diagnosis. Your body is in a state of constant flight or fight. And if you don't change your life right now, you're not going to make it. No funny thing is I had heard the terms fight or flight fight or flight, you know, like we all hear that, but I heard it from my mom. You're pushing too hard for my husband. You're doing too much, but I never really internalized it until that moment.
1 (8m 58s):
When I realized my whole rhythm was off, like I had no homeostasis in my body, my organs were failing me. And so I started crying really just tears of, ah, this is a good reality that I'm hearing. Cause now I can wake up. Hello, think about it. So I walked out of his office with a kitchen counter full of Chinese herbs, Chinese medicine. And I began to follow his protocol along with weekly acupuncture visits. And I started to see improvement, but it wasn't working fast enough in my opinion. And I told my person, I told you about my personality. So I began this massive journey into other modalities and boom, I enrolled in the Institute of integrative nutrition, got a health coaching certification within the year, spent a week in Massachusetts getting certified in raw food.
1 (9m 53s):
I began juicing before anyone drank any other juices other than Tropicana OJ, I began a supplementation protocol. I mean, I, wasn't a huge believer in supplements back then, but I just learned that this, this all fills your cells with more vitality. I found essential oils and finally my body started to heal and all it took, John was real food nourishment and simple lifestyle hacks.
0 (10m 25s):
I mean fire nation. I know a lot of you're listening right now and you're like, I can resonate with Haley right now. You know, maybe not on the scale of 10 to 10 where she was, maybe you're to attend. Maybe you're eight of 10, maybe you're five of 10, but you're feeling that on some level, because this world that we live in is just so fast paced. So go, go, go. And of course, a lot of people were like, well, things are slower now because of COVID. But now, you know, there's different kinds of stressors. Now there's different types of anxiety that's happening. So it's the world that we live in right here. And, you know, for Hailey to walk in to this functional medicine doctor to stick out her tongue and haven't taken the pulse and say, you're always in a state of fight or flight, your organs are failing.
0 (11m 6s):
You're not going to make it much longer. Like that was the reality slap in the face. She needed to say, okay, there's things that are more important than what I've been prioritizing in my life now. And I need to get back into focus. So one thing that I love Haley is that you've created three very specific ways that people can start building out a more balanced life. So let's break down those three things.
1 (11m 29s):
Yeah, you're right. And you guys, you may not be exhausted or stressed to the max or overwhelmed with all the things. But I do believe that every one of us does have a breaking point at some point. And I do know, I do know from speaking to so many people that most people are looking for a better, easier, and quicker way to fear feel better, nourish and happy. So basically focus on three ways that worked for me. And I've seen them work for others where you can hack your own health holistically and find what I call more balanced happiness. And I'll, you know, going back to the COVID thing. I don't know if people are actually slowed down because maybe the first six weeks, maybe the circuit first six weeks when people didn't know, Oh my gosh, what is going on?
1 (12m 15s):
But I don't know you, but I used to travel the globe. I was literally only home, about 10 days to two weeks a year. I'm not traveling at all now, but I'm busier than ever. I'm actually busier than I was pre COVID. So I don't know about the world slowing down with COVID. I think these are hacks that we can all use all the time COVID or not. So the three things that I focus on that I teach are your nutrition, your PR, I call it progressive relaxation. You probably like what's that? Can I just take a nap? I'll talk about that. And the third is your productivity.
1 (12m 56s):
And what I've seen is people want to be productive. They want to get shit done, but people are massively on the productive for so many different reasons. So that's what I'd like to focus on today.
0 (13m 7s):
I'm excited to talk about all three of these things. I mean, I've personally seen the benefits of really improving every one of these three steps, and there's just always ways to continue to up your game in these different three things. So Haley, why don't you take it away with nutrition?
1 (13m 23s):
Yeah, let's talk about that. So with nutrition, I'm not by the way, talking about the basics, like making sure you're getting your fair share of comp complex carbohydrates or healthy fats or proteins into your body, or making sure that you're adding something green to your plate. You guys already know that like that's basic common knowledge. I'm talking about pro tips above me, but they're easy pro tips above and beyond. Let's say that half roasted Turkey and caramelized kale panini that you order at Panera bread. Okay. And you're probably hearing that and going, but Haley, I heard the word kale and I thought I was good to go for at least a week, but here's the deal caramelized means sugar, sugar means inflammation and inflammation means if not now, then eventually soon.
1 (14m 18s):
And I think, you know, that prepared at home with love is more nourishing. So I'm going to give you guys three easy tips to not just get more nourishment to your body, but that will actually save you time. And this is in the nourishment piece, three tips in the nourishment piece or the nutrition piece. Number one is ditch the bagel and cream cheese that you're grabbing at Einstein's and make yourself either a killer avocado toast or a powerhouse smoothie with antioxidants and super foods in it. And I have an agreement. I have ingredients and recipes for you. I have a download for you. So I'm going to give you guys that. So don't worry about jotting down anything I'll, I'll hand that over the second is, and that's easy.
1 (15m 3s):
Like I can make this avocado toast or power powerhouse movie, literally in five minutes. It's not like you have to like, get the stove going and do this beautiful omelet or clean pans after like, this is just easy. The simple five minute stuff. The second is please, please, please supplement your diet with additional vitamins minerals, Omega fatty acids and antioxidants. I can promise you that you're not getting enough from your food organic or not. Our soil these days is simply not rich or dense enough in the nutrients that you need to support your body's needs.
1 (15m 44s):
And honestly, unless you've been in a finalist and unless you've been a finalist in a competitive eating contest, but your food of choice is like all plant-based life food, rather than hotdogs, there is no way you can possibly eat enough to receive all the nutrition that your body's needs. There's no way, no matter how much you eat that you can receive enough nutrition these days. And that was what was happening to me. I wasn't literally receiving renewed nutrition. So my body wasn't thriving anymore. It's as simple as getting nutrition into your body because the cells in our body are the basic building blocks of all life in our body, healthy tissues, organs, and ultimately organisms depend on cellular reproduction and energy production, but in today's world due to many environmental issues, including lack of sleep and overdose of technology, hello, zoom ruins every hour, right?
1 (16m 49s):
Pollution. Now with pollution, I mean, you can just talk about the four fires that we just had over the last couple of weeks here in Northern Colorado, our whole state was burning down and it causes pollution, toxic load in the environment. And on top of that, not the best nutrition. So our cells are not functioning at optimal levels. And as we age that cellular function deteriorates. So we can be, we begin to experience a decrease in our energy and here's the clincher because some people are like, eh, I'm tired and they don't really care, but it's also our performance and our mood or our mental health.
1 (17m 29s):
So if you need the nutrition for dummies cliff notes, all this means is you want your cells to live. Plus it will help you have your skin look younger,
2 (17m 43s):
Not a bad byproduct, right? Right.
1 (17m 45s):
We need a boost of nutrition that will provide us not only with energy, but that will disrupt. They call it disrupting the damage caused by free radicals, which will ultimately destroy ourselves. So simply put, just make sure that you give yourself a daily dose of polyphenols that will support healthy cell function.
0 (18m 5s):
Just give us an example of polyphenols. Okay.
1 (18m 7s):
So like by a cell in rust era, tall pomegranate seed extract, grape seed extract, the curcumin from tumeric root silymarin from milk thistle root. I've got a list. Listen, I'll give you a download. So I'll, I'll, I'll spell it all out for you, but you've got to have selfie, selfie, healthy. You've got to let us support healthy. One thing about me Gianna, sometimes I talk too fast and I literally starts telling you the second word that comes out of my mouth before I've actually released the first
0 (18m 38s):
Version of Ebonics. Just keep rolling. Yeah,
1 (18m 40s):
Exactly. Exactly. So you want to support healthy cell function to provide that antioxidant protection to your cellular DNA. And again, I'll give you all that. So anyway, that was number one. Number two was you want to have better food in your diet. You want to ditch the crappy food and you want to get some easy recipes in too. You want to make sure that you're getting supplements in your diet. And the third one in the nutrition piece is to keep your GI track and your liver clean. Now I want to ask you if you know this, did you know, do you know how much, how much of your immune system lives in your gut? Like what percent of your immune system lives in your gut?
1 (19m 19s):
87%, almost 70%, 70% of your immune system lives in your gut. Which means if you're eating the right foods, if you're drinking plenty of water, if you're sweating out the toxins, if you're proactively flushing the bacteria and inflammation from your organs, then you're going to increase productivity of your immune system, which is really crucial right now when you think big time. Yeah. So there's, I've got a couple of ways that you can do that easily. One of them, like I said is just eating better, but the sec that that's the, that's the bonus one we already talked about. The three new ones are when you wake up in the morning, instead of grabbing a coffee, take some warm water, hot water, seep, some ginger in it add a little lemon.
1 (20m 4s):
Lemon is super cleansing and clarifying. And ginger is very powerful and aiding with digestion. You need your body to digest your food. So
0 (20m 13s):
How do you put the ginger in the water? So
1 (20m 16s):
What I do is I boil a hot pot of water and then I just literally put the ginger ginger in there and let it seep. Then I just squeeze the lemon in it. And then I pour it in a pitcher and I just keep that in my fridge. And then I can warm it up daily if I want to, you can even drink it cold if you want, but you can do that. And then what I do cause I'm an essential oil freak is I add one drop of lemon, essential oil and one drop of ginger. On top of that, the, the essential oil has, it includes everything, including the rind. It's not just the juice. So it's really, really cleansing and detoxifying, but can make it once a week. Just make a big picture for yourself. Even if you just have a shot of it. It's you know, when you go to a juice bar and you're like, Oh, let me do the shots.
1 (20m 56s):
0 (20m 58s):
So Haley, we have a lot to cover. Let's wrap up nutrition there. We're going to take a quick break and come back for number two and number three.
1 (21m 5s):
All right, cool. Then the other things for nutrition is just adding tumeric to your diet, to reduce inflammation and try intermittent fasting, which gives your body a chance to properly digest your food.
0 (21m 13s):
You just don't always have to be digesting fire nation. Like we're not cows. Like we don't need to always be chewing on Cod, like give your digestive track a break and we're coming back.

0 (23m 29s):
So Haley we're back, let's talk progressive relaxation. Number two, on these three ways that we can start building out a more balanced life, take it away.
1 (23m 39s):
You guys are probably wondering what, what progressive relaxation is. It's like, can I just take a nap? No. And the trip to the spa is not going to do the trick either or even a Mai Tai on the sand. If you're out there in Puerto Rico, the thing is our brains are cranking and our nervous systems are constantly in overdrive. So yeah, the sun and the mango COE scrub, it can all be an added benefit, but I'd like to give you a couple of hacks that you can walk out of this, this podcast with right now and, and, and get your body to progressive or relax. And the first one is teach your body to wind down like a good 90 minutes before you plan to go to bed so you can sleep.
1 (24m 24s):
Now, John, I remember I told you I was on an, a sleep medication for 15 years. I don't take anything. I take nothing right now and I sleep. I've got one of those aura rings where it tracks my sleep. I sleep eight hours in a row. Quality REM deep sleep at night. Now with these hacks. So you guys, these are solid. All right, wind down, turn off the computer, get away from the blue lights. Get away from the blue screens. Turn off the TV. Don't look at your phone. If you want to know what time it is in the middle of the night, use an old school clock wind down before you go to sleep and you can do this with things like weighted blankets. I do this even in the summer, I've got this big 15 pound blanket.
1 (25m 6s):
It's super warming and snugly. And then I use essential oils. A some people love sound machines. I don't, I don't, but some people do. And then humidifier, I love the humidifier. My room, the more humid the room is the better, the deeper I sleep.
0 (25m 20s):
Well, here's a quick hack to you for people that are listening. And they're saying, but I can never sleep under heavy blankets because I would like sweat my butt off. I was the same way, especially here in Puerto Rico, but I've recently invested in the Uhler O O L E R, which is like the chili pad. And it literally is a pad under your sheet that just runs whatever temperature water you want it to run. And this thing keeps my body. I found that my perfect is 64 degrees is what I run that at. And so I can now have these heavy blankets over me, which I love for that comfort like level, but I don't wake up just like covered in sweat in the middle of the night. I sleep through the entire night. So that's a hack for all those hot sleepers.
1 (26m 1s):
I love that. And you know what the other thing is just knowing when during the night you are, your body temperature is warmer or cooler. So what I've noticed is I need it when I first go to sleep. And then sometimes if I get too warm, I can take it off around midnight or 1:00 AM. But then I want it back on again at like four.
0 (26m 16s):
So competitive that messes with my sleep score because I wear the ordering. And like, when you get up at midnight and you get up again at two or 3:00 AM, like, you're waking up, that's messing with your wrestling and score. And like, I'm like, how do I just sleep through the night?
1 (26m 29s):
Yeah, no. I mean, I, if you can do the ChiliPad pad, do it. I agree with you. But if you just want to push the blanket over, when you walk up, that's the cheap wind. All right. All right. Second one is meditation. And if the thought of meditating sends any of you guys into a higher state of panic than you were before I mentioned the word, try it, try honestly, try a guided app, try that, guided it up. Just listening to somebody else's voice can really help. You got to find somebody who you resonate with an, a voice that doesn't totally annoy you, but I go pro I don't know if you have this too, John, I have this device, it's a headset it's equipped with ISO chronic sound tones and blue light therapy, like a little visor over it, which helps affect the unconscious thought patterns and serotonin levels while I'm tuning in.
1 (27m 18s):
So I can hear different beats coming in from different ears. There's guided with voice guided with music and then the light. And I put that on before I go to bed and I fall asleep before it's over.
0 (27m 29s):
Hm. That's really kind of interesting to me actually, because everything I've always been hearing is like blue light is a big negative anytime.
1 (27m 36s):
Well, it's not the same blue light. It's not the same blue light that you're talking about from a screen. Okay. Yeah. And I use it in the morning too, as a way to focus in and get my creativity and productivity and motivation running as well. So I usually do two sessions a day, like a 10 minute to 12 minute in the morning. Some people love to do it in the afternoon to just re generate and get more focused. But I do like a morning and an evening one, and I was like, so not a meditator before. And the clarity it brings me in the morning is amazing. And what's the name of that? The one I use is called brain tap. I can send you a link to it if you want brain tap. Okay. Yeah. Brain tap. Okay. So the third one is the third hack that I've got for progressive relaxation is to add cow into your diet.
1 (28m 22s):
Ooh, I like chocolate. I don't mean cocoa though. Nebraska's chocolate. I mean, cacao and medicinal mushrooms like reishi mushrooms. So like when I go out in town and I order my gourmet, you know, coffee beverage, it's not a coffee anymore. It's a cacao with reishi mushrooms. And yeah. Have you
0 (28m 43s):
Heard of the company four Sigmatic?
1 (28m 45s):
I haven't, I've been using something called mud water to get the mushrooms,
0 (28m 49s):
Mud water. Cool. Yeah. Four Sigmatic used to be a sponsor of the show. I got kinda hooked on them that, and they have the Rishi in lion's mane mushrooms in the it's like an instant coffee mix, but it's all mushrooms.
1 (29m 2s):
Yeah. That's exactly what this is. It's mud, but like w T R is how they spell it. And then I also add a little brain octane fuel in there. So anyway, these are examples of superfoods and adaptogens. Superfoods are well super foods that have significantly higher levels of vitamins and minerals and antioxidants and adaptogens are plants that help your body reduce stressors of all kinds. They adapt to stress. So cacao is a super food that helps reduce stressors and reishi mushrooms. Aren't adaptogens. So things like I literally changed. So I do the, I do the intermittent. I don't wake up and have a coffee beverage anymore.
1 (29m 43s):
I wait, I just drink waters and fluids until about noon. And then I make a hot cacau latte that I add this stuff into. And that's my first kind of break, the fast super food drink in the morning. And the it's made a world of difference. These plants, they interact with your hypothalamic, pituitary, adrenal access and to the both the sympathetic adrenal system, both are, which involved, both are involved in the body's response to stress. And they can also adaptogens can tweak hormone production and physiological responses to stress to ensure that your body is moving towards homeostasis. So homeostasis, I want you guys to understand, like your body is supposed to be out of control at certain points.
1 (30m 26s):
Like, you know, you, you, you drive to a stoplight and somebody gives you the finger or something. I mean, our bodies are always going to get pissed off. And Mo like, you know, your dog runs out in the middle of the street or your daughter comes home crying, or you do a long run and you're in your, in your body is it's adapting to stress. Right. But it's a post to come back to homeostasis. And a lot of us are not, I wasn't coming back anymore. So that's anyway, that's all I have to say about progressive relaxation.
0 (30m 55s):
That was a lot. So that's cool. And just to kind of recap real quick, you're intermittent fasting until noon. And what is this noon cocktail look like that you were talking?
1 (31m 4s):
So by the way, the news is just because I usually don't stop eating until about seven or eight. So if you like to stop eating earlier, you could start eating earlier. If you want to do the intermittent fasting, some people choose 12 hours. Yeah. Some choose fourteens. I do. 16 people are extreme and more extreme and they do 18 or 2016 is the perfect for me. Cause I, I'm not really hungry after seven or eight and I can wait until noon after that. You know, it's like a lot, but the cocktail that I make and I'll give you the recipe is I do. I warm up coconut milk. Sometimes that she's Aman, but usually coconut, I put some cacao powder in it and some cacao butter. And I add the reishi mushroom mix sometimes when I'm really feeling like I want to get a little more jacked up, I do add a shot of espresso.
1 (31m 49s):
Let's be honest. Let's be honest. I do a little natural sugar in there. And then I add some cayenne pepper and cinnamon on top.
0 (31m 58s):
Yikes. And that's not cinnamon and sugar fire nation. That's just cinnamon,
1 (32m 3s):
Cinnamon. And then the brain octane fuel when I'm in the mood to let's talk productivity, I think that there are ways to hack your productivity. And the biggest excuse that I hear from people is they don't have time, which is a lie. Every single one of us has the same amount of time, but the way that some people manage their time is frigging sloppy. So what I want to do is I want to give you a very simple three part system that I use, that I created to help you get everything done without the massive to-do lists, because that's what I think happens is like people make this massive to do list. And most of the time it's in their head and especially ways when we just so overwhelmed with it. So when somebody tells me something like on a boxer message or an email, I'm like task it to me in a song.
3 (32m 48s):
Yes. What in my calendar like this?
1 (32m 52s):
So the first thing is you do make a list. You make a list of everything that you would like to do or believe you need to do. And I I'm teaching a lot of women entrepreneurs. It's like, there are different buckets of lists. There's like the family list that might be, you know, getting the supplies for the birthday party or doing grocery shopping or paying bills. There could be like the, the meat list. Like I want to give myself a facial in the morning or get in my massage chair or sit out and read a book. There could be the work list, like all the things that you need to do for work. Some people have different tasks in their business. There could be the social list. Like, I mean, there's lots of diff the Erin Dulles. There's, there's lots of different lists that we can create house lists.
1 (33m 36s):
So just write every single thing down and actually write down whether it's daily, whether it's weekly, whether it's monthly, whether it's quarterly and then assign even some time to it. Some things take five minutes, but we still never do them. And then some things are a project and we never get to them because of their like, Oh my God, it's got to exalt. All right. But if you just assign yourself like a two hour block, you'd probably just knock it out then everything. This is where everybody gets messed up. They've got this list and they don't know where it belongs. So they just say they can't get anything done. But if you actually assign a due date to every task, and I know you get this because you probably have your own a sauna or whatever, you're using less. But me and my team, we use this, this, this project management thing called platform called a sauna.
1 (34m 22s):
Everyone has their own tasks and I can assign tasks to others. If you don't want to go, you know, high-tech and use something digital, you can assign it to yourself in your own calendar. So for instance, John, you and I showed up for this, this podcast together, we probably both had in our calendar with the link in the calendar. So we could just get you messaged me. Or like, I'm like, yup. Because it was assigned and it was ready and it was right. So if this is calendar for, let's say 30 minutes, then in 30 minutes, we both get off. Right? If there needs to be a follow-up that we calendar it for later.
1 (35m 3s):
So that's the fourth thing. That's the third, third part of it is one is make the list. Two is task due date, and three is calendar it. And so for me, if I want to book something like a hair appointment, which I desperately need right now,
3 (35m 16s):
1 (35m 17s):
Which will take like three hours, but it's not an absolute priority. Like pick my daughter up from the bus stop or she's standing up there on the corner. Then I can calendar it out. I can look at my calendar next week, the week after the week after. And I can look at what is our chunk there, and I can put it on my calendar. And since I'm sitting in the chair for three hours, I can bring my laptop. I can double block that time. I could write my own social media posts for the week or podcast episode or clean out my inbox or whatever during that appointment. So I just, I get frustrated is, is where that sounds bad. But I get frustrated with people because I'm like, I'm just like you, I have a family and a dog and a home and a business and employees and all of these people I'm managing, but I can still get all my social posts done, run to the post office, record my own podcasts, meet with my assistant, drop a new draft, a new chapter for my book, play a game with my daughter, do Tik TOK videos with her.
1 (36m 21s):
She's teaching me that now, you know, chaperoned a school trip when we get back to them because I'm just simply calendaring things. And I follow my calendar to a T. So it's called scheduling your success. And I get it, that things come up, emergencies happen. But all you do is drag that one block to a new time or day. And then you follow the calendar again. And if your time management is sloppy, you won't get anything done. But if you're managing your time, well, you'll, you'll stay super productive
0 (37m 2s):
Fire nation. You know that you're on the right path when you do something that I do most days. I know I do it usually the early part of the week is I pull up my Google calendar and I look at it and I just smile because everything that's in that calendar is things that I'm going to do. And nothing that is not in that calendar. Am I going to do, like, I am literally only going to do the things that are in that calendar for that week. That's it? That is my schedule. It is locked in stone and it brings a big smile to my face because I know that this is going to be an incredibly productive week because I'm going to be producing the right things because of the scheduling.
0 (37m 44s):
So take this part home Hayley.
1 (37m 46s):
Yeah. And it's like, you know, people always ask me like, Haley, how do you get so much done? Cause I screenshot my calendar often when I'm doing lives or I just am literally hosting a seven day reclaim your time challenge right now. So I'm showing people and I'm like, how do you get so much done? I'm like, what are you talking about? I have X amount of hours of my day and I put the things in it and I just follow it. Like, that's all I do right now. I mean, I'm lucky. I have an 11 year old who knows how to tie her shoes herself and heat up something in the microwave. And she's in school. I'm lucky. She's in school. She leaves at seven 15 in the morning. She doesn't go back till four 15, but I just follow the calendar like you do. I met a guy last weekend. I was in Vegas and he's like a billionaire. And he, he, he schedules three years out.
1 (38m 32s):
He scheduled three years out. People that were, were freaking out. We had a whole room of high, six and seven figure, multiple seven figure earners in there and people were freaking out and he's like, I just schedule my success.
0 (38m 44s):
Yeah. So I just sent you a screenshot. I think you, you can take out of it if you look up. So that's literally my Thursday and like, people wouldn't be able to do that in, in a month if you gave that to them, like, you're like, you're like, you've got to get on 40 calls. Like they wouldn't be able to schedule that over the course of a month. But you know, I, I do these different promotions and these different launches. And one of the things that I do is I give away eight minute phone calls with me and where we can talk about your one biggest problem and do our best to, to, you know, get to some resolution or those eight minutes. And this Thursday, I just have back to back for like seven or eight hours. And it's all scheduled. I'm going to get to every one of those calls right on time.
0 (39m 25s):
I'm going to end every one of those calls right on time. Everybody knows very clearly that this is it. And I don't have this type of a day every week or every month. Like this is an insane days. One of my more insane days I've done in 2020, for sure. But instead of taking what is on this one day and spreading it out over 15 days or 30 days, which most people would do, which should make them unbelievably unproductive, I'm smashing it into one day. I'm going to wake up. I'm going to crush it. And therefore it's going to, it's freeing up all of the rest of my days. Like if you looked at my schedule today and this day, this week are very busy. I've done seven interviews for entrepreneurs on fire.
0 (40m 5s):
And then this Thursday, I'm doing all these interviews for these different calls. But my Monday, Wednesday, and Friday have nothing. I am not because it's all creative. I have nothing scheduled there except my creative time zone.
1 (40m 19s):
I love that. You said that because you know, some people say to me, they see me on the weekends, just doing nothing, playing with my kids and going downtown, being on the beach. Cause we have a house in San Diego too. And I'm like, well, I just get it done during the week. Everybody else has these things hanging over their head on the evening. I'm like, I turned my computer off at six o'clock at night. I turn it off. Like I have it, my phone, if something comes up. But my Saturdays and Sundays are like me time, family time, because I schedule it in Monday through Friday. And I had a day like you yesterday, where I had 20 appointments on my calendar. And one of the appointments was to go work out. But one of them was to get my eyelashes up, but still 20 appointments. Right?
0 (41m 1s):
They lined it up. You knocked it down and you know, to stick to our schedule that you and I both agreed to today, we are going to bring this conversation to an end here because I want to talk about your new course. You have, it's called your whole biz from overwhelm to online. So talk to us about this course, break it down for fire nation.
1 (41m 25s):
What I saw as COVID hit was that there were many people that were struggling losing their jobs or they weren't getting the business that they normally would get because their brick and mortar, I have so many friends who own restaurants, who are personal trainers, who are eyelash experts, hairstylists, whatever they were, or they had just brick and mortar clothing stores. And they had no income coming in. And I thought to myself, everybody needs to have, even if they're not building an online business, they need to have an online stream of income. Like that's what has to happen with the day and age that we're in right now, it's inevitable that everything is going to shift into online or almost everything.
1 (42m 9s):
And you have to figure out a way to on cap your income. And I think the world has shown us all of us over the last, almost year. Now why we need a safety net and why going online is vital to the longevity of your business and your income. So I decided to create a course to people who felt like online marketing could be daunting and they literally don't know where to start. And so what I do in this course is I have nine different modules. And this is specifically designed to people who have, like I said, any type of brick and mortar business where they're not yet online or somebody who is online, but doesn't have it all dialed in.
1 (42m 51s):
Like I took my passion as you guys heard my story, I took my passion. By the way. I don't know if I told you, I did tell you this. In the very beginning I went to law school. I taught, I practiced law for five years and I, upon graduation, I thought I had it all dialed in you guys. And I had this killer office on the 47th floor of century, city, Los Angeles. I'm walking in one day feeling like the hot shot. I look outside, look at the view and I realize I didn't want to be there anymore. This is like 26, 27 years old, like making six figures at the time, which back then was a lot of money.
1 (43m 38s):
Okay. And I just realized, I didn't want to be there anymore. This isn't what it felt like to me in my blood and my spirit, my body. And I think that, you know, what I did is I took that leap of faith and I, I decided I wanted to be a Pilates and yoga teacher back then. I, my parents, by the way, were super pleased about that. Like they paid for my law school. They pay for college. I went to Brandeis university outside of Boston. It was a private school anyway. So I left the practice of law and I started my own business again, brick and mortar seeing clients by the hour. And after 15 years of that, again, I was like, my income is capped now, thank God I had the break down that I had because that's what allowed me to stop and re literally re-examine my whole life and decide what I wanted to do.
1 (44m 33s):
And I built an online multiple seven figure business now, and you can have this too. There's nothing special about me. I'm just a regular person. I'm not some weird, crazy superhuman. If I can do this, anybody can do this. So this is for people who want a business, they can grow beyond their physical location, whatever that may be without sucking up their, their, their time. This is for people who need a simple way to understand how to take their business or part of their business into an online space. And they want a clear step by step process.
1 (45m 14s):
Now, during the COVID, I was working out one day and one of my trainers with her and I said, she's struggling like her clients aren't coming. And they finally, when the place is reopened and they have to wear masks and you can only let three people come in or four people come in and set at 12 or 16 or whatever. And I said to her, why don't you create a course? Why don't you take your workouts online? Why don't you get out there to this online space? And I, I got so excited because I'm actually into fitness. Like part of my story is I told you, I swam from the years of five until through college. And then I did triathlon. I was highly competitive podium age group, or I ran competitively. I did the Pilates thing. So I got super excited.
1 (45m 54s):
I literally delivered in five minutes, like an online funnel that you could have first, you got to do this and you create this workouts in a binder and it's water proof that it's got spirals on it. And then you, you know, you said Facebook ads do it. The whole thing, I started delivering it to her. And then the next thing is, is you have a course and you teach people how to build an online gym out of their garage and you become an affiliate for all these. And I literally gave her and she looked at me in her. Her eyes are huge. And she said, what's an ebook. And I realized at that moment that I needed to help people who were still living in the eighties. And the funny thing is that she's only like 29 years old, but if you guys are like her or like me, obviously you've checked into the online business things.
1 (46m 43s):
But to some people still overwhelming and you're spending thousands and thousands and thousands of dollars trying to figure out everybody's secrets. So I wanted to help people create, let's just even call it a division of their business. So they've got the foundation and then they've got a new systematic approach to take it online. So that is what I created. And I have to tell you, I have many online courses that I, that I, that I teach that I sell. I've got some in the holistic wellness space. I've got a course card called Euro, your whole, you six weeks to healthy habits and holistic happiness. I have a course specifically designed for network marketers to take their business online. But this is like, I am in love with this course.
1 (47m 25s):
Like this course is so good. When I was writing it, I was like jumping around the room every day when I was writing and putting it together and filming it. It was so much fun to create. I literally help any. I gave seven different funnels to people and most different business models and literally create it. And if they can't create an online business by the end of taking my funnels and turning them into their own, I don't know,
0 (47m 49s):
