EP 44: Prioritizing Your Health Over Your Business with Sheley Brien

Jul 18, 2023
EP 44- -School for Small Business Podcast


We are so excited to be joined by the multi-talented Sheley Brien. 

Sheley Brien is a powerhouse entrepreneur, wellness expert, and devoted wife and mother of two. With 18+ years of experience in the medical industry and a successful climb up the corporate ladder, she's now a construction business owner and media mogul. 

As the host of the Business of Being Healthy podcast, Sheley shares personal experiences and those of her guests to help others accelerate their career and health while saving time, money, and heartache. Her entrepreneurial spirit kicked off with a side hustle in 2012, which has since morphed into a thriving media company that reached over 3.2 million in 2022. Sheley's expertise and experience make her the ultimate authority on mindset, career acceleration, and health.

With the busyness of running a small business on top of all of our other responsibilities, our health can often be an afterthought. This should not be the case. When we utilize our nutrition and exercise, we can improve our energy and overall well being. These small improvements will reflect in our business and not only will we feel better, but our businesses will run smoother. 


Topics we cover: 

2:35 - Sheley shares her beliefs about the importance of health and taking care of ourselves.

7:32 - There are three main starting blocks to improving your health. These are acknowledging that you are worth the time to invest in your health, starting small, and eating.

18:24 - It’s important to know when to step away from a business and to do what you want to do, even if it means taking a pay cut. You should not need to negotiate your core values.

23:59 - What is it like to work with your spouse and how can you make it work? 


Watching our health and making sure that our core values are met in our work are very important. Quite a few health problems that we may encounter in the future are preventable, but we need to be keeping an active watch on our bodies to insure that we are the healthiest that we can be. You will be happier and more productive when you put your health first in your life.
