The Importance of Self-Care: Guest – Christina Rivera

In this audio interview I’m being interviewed by my friend James Miller (of https://www.jamesmillerlifeology.com/), we discuss: “The Importance of Self-Care”

We all have daily responsibilities and people who rely on us. How do you reset to make sure that you have enough energy not only to give to them but to give to yourself? Self-care is one of the most important gifts you can give yourself. Think of a glass of water, if you continue to give water to others then what’s left for you? Learning how to quickly replenish your water (your energy) allows you to be more productive than before.

Christina Rivera is a highly sought after consultant, speaker, and host of Savvy Broadcasting’s Life Unscripted Radio show. Christina took some time to reflect on the strengths of her business, and also areas in which it could be improved. She took six months off for self-care and found that her business was even more successful than before. She shares her wisdom in what to do when your business goes stale and you aren’t sure what to do next.

Mary Shenouda is a highly sought-after private chef to A-list actors, professional athletes, and high-octane entrepreneurs. Mary burst on the scene in 2013 under the nom de cuisine, The Paleo Chef, after leaving a successful career in the start-up world to pursue her passion for the transformative power of clean-eating—a passion sparked by her own transformational experience.

Her focus on eating clean has found a worldwide audience in those few short years and led to the creation of a fine-dining menu consultancy and a performance food line called Phat Fudge that sells out as fast as she can make it.

Mary consults with various organizations including Nike and is the chef behind the show Man Enough (www.wearemanenough.com). She has cooked for people like Adam Rodriguez, Brandon Routh, Courtney Ford, Justin Baldoni, Tim Ferriss, Chef Michael Mina (2 event collaborations, including 1,000 people at Niner Stadium).
