1. Episode 17 - Dr. Christy Matusiak - Face It Until You Ace It! Drew Deraney 35:49

In 2019 was when I feel like I hit my financial and business entrepreneurial, a rock bottom, so to speak. So almost exactly four years ago. I had plenty of self-limiting belief systems in my head that I could not be a successful businesswoman. Run a practice and be a successful mom at the same time. We were just talking about this before we jumped on right it was this idea that there was this work life balance idea, it’s all an illusion, like very strongly had in my head that I couldn’t do both and 2019 and really all came to a head where every single account that we had was down to zero. I business checking account, our personal savings, our personal checking, zero and my phone bill was due, and I had to swallow my pride and ego and call a friend and say hey, this is a situation that can I please borrow some money just to pay our phone bill? because I had three kids. I can’t risk not having, you know, a phone that’s functional and for a couple days. So, it was really, it was embarrassing it was an, and I remember feeling in that moment just I never want to do this again I’m so over this. I’m definitely, I’m just so tired of not feeling like I can cope with life optimal financial aspect of things.
