Jules Galloway - Business Without Burnout: The 3 Sneak Things Zapping Your Energy
In this episode we have a very candid reveal about the sneaky parts of business that have practitioners well on the way to burnout, and its things you may not even notice. Jules Galloway is a passionate naturopath, speaker, and podcaster. Health wasn’t always Jules’ priority. She lived a party lifestyle for over a decade, and later threw herself into her career to the point of burnout.. But when it began to take its toll on her mind and body, she ditched the busy inner city life for a fresh start in the Byron Bay hinterland. Diagnosed with pyrrole disorder, adrenal issues and a couple of pesky gene mutations thrown in for good measure, Jules had to learn the importance of nourishing herself - using wholefoods, supplements, happiness, gratitude and a good dose of humour. With over 10 years of clinical experience and an interest in complex cases and functional medicine, Jules has made it her mission to help exhausted, busy women find their shine again. She’s guided hundreds of people through her eCourses, and also sees clients individually - mostly online. Her podcast gets thousands of downloads every month and has been in the top 10 in the iTunes charts. Jules is also the Fiji Nutrition Coordinator for Involvement Volunteers International, and runs a public health and diabetes prevention program, taking teams of medical and nutrition volunteers to both the mainland and remote areas of Fiji 4 times per year. When she’s not helping her tribe to become healthier, Jules can be found surfing, hanging out with her husband, adopting (yet more) rescue dogs, doing yoga and pilates, or walking the famous Byron Bay lighthouse track. You can find Jules at http://julesgalloway.com Jules will be gracing our NatEx 2020 stage sharing her wisdom too https://www.tammyguest.com/natupreneur-experience/

Michelle Whitehead - The Biggest Mistakes Natupreneurs Make with their Legals
Michelle Whitehead is an Australian lawyer and accredited mediator who provides creative entrepreneurs with the ultimate tools for business self-care. Michelle believes wholeheartedly in the need for education around legal concepts, particularly for creative entrepreneurs who – when faced with paying a lawyer to bore them to death - would rather run the risk of not knowing. She is enchanted by the fascinating challenge of reinventing traditional legal constructs for the needs of a new paradigm of business, basing them on principles of connection and caring rather than fear and avoidance. She creates contracts that care, demystifies intellectual property, advises on setting brave boundaries, handles conflict with empathy, and provides risk management with a woo woo twist. She is also an unschooler who can't resist any story that begins "once upon a time."
