Suzy Batiz is a serial creator and expert in entrepreneurial intuition who has built an empire by tackling taboo topics and shaping culture by challenging societal norms. She doesn’t recognize conventional boundaries and operates on an expansive plane of “anything is possible.” Today, Suzy teaches other entrepreneurs the feminine approach to business—how to tune into intuition, turn on your body intelligence and dive into creative energy to achieve a naturally abundant flow state. After rising from some of life’s lowest lows, Suzy embarked on a spiritual sabbatical where she developed internal happiness and abundance. Then, Suzy unexpectedly had an idea that she described as “alive” and developed it into an exponentially growing, debt-free enterprise worth $500 million without borrowing a cent or enlisting a single investor. Suzy is now best known as the inventor, founder and CEO of Poo~Pourri, the cult-favorite, all natural before-you-go toilet spray and genius behind supernatural, a new line of game-changing, natural household cleaning products.

This episode is a celebration of listeners. I’ve learned so much from this show about all the topics we’ve covered and I’ve learned so much about myself.

My favorite part of this podcast is the community and the enduring sense that we’re not alone.

In addition to celebrating joy and a life well lived, this show also celebrates curiosity. My hope is that after listening to these four unique conversations you’ll be inspired to have chats like this for yourself.

that’s why I created a PDF with all the questions I ask today and if you want a copy so you can use them for journaling prompts or conversations starters with your friends just email me georgie@init4thelongrun.com or you can DM me on instagram

This week’s episode is a Q&A. I asked you to ask me your questions and with the help of my friend Engrid Latina I/we answer them. Like with everything, it’s so important that you listen to your gut first and foremost. Take what you like and leave the rest!

 

Questions:

  • What are your most and least favorite parts of the wellness world? I know you want to stray from the term but what keeps you with it? I personally love your approach to wellness; not just green juice and positivity but realness, finance, ups & downs, taking it slow and working hard. Idk I guess I just would like to hear you talk on this topic!
  • What’s your fave way to get into alignment? (Aka what do you do when you just feel bleh)
  • What do you do when you can’t find a job? How do you keep your head up?
  • How do you deal when frustrating things happen, that are not in your control?
  • Do you rent or own your home? I want to put down roots but the idea of being tied down is scary.
  • How to stay consistent with posting while staying creative. Where do you get inspiration from?
  • How hard and scary was it to leave your full-time job and start your blogging full time?
  • Do you have any practical tips for reducing student debt while in college?
  • What tips do you have for starting the journey of intuitive eating?
  • How do you know whether to make a career change you're attracted to when it requires investing significant money?
  • With work and life being so intertwined - how do you answer the question of what your hobbies are without talking about work too much
  • Why did you decide to focus on joy for your podcast?
  • Love the thought of moving to a small place like Nantucket but afraid of the lack of social life
  • Hypothalamic amenorrhea and the fear of gaining weight when your BMI is already normal
  • How to intuitively find what workouts are best for you?
  • Can you speak on doing photography for local businesses?
