This week’s podcast is sponsored by Somnifix! Somnifix is a mouth strip that optimizes breathing patterns and reduces snores by directing airflow through the nose. Somnifix ensures that you breathe through your nose during the night, which allows you to sleep much more soundly all night long and can eliminate needing to wake up, snoring, drooling, restless nights, and more. This has TRANSFORMED the way I sleep! The strip is hypoallergenic and contains a small vent to allow some air to pass through! You can get Somnifix on Amazon, and use the code “CRWSLEEP” at checkout for 15% off!

In this episode I chat with Lisa Bilyeu of Quest Nutrition, Impact Theory, and the Sheroic Podcast! From film student to full-time housewife to world-class entrepreneur, Lisa is a master of adaptation and personal growth. As a founding team member of the billion dollar company Quest Nutrition, she built the company’s revolutionary in-house media department, that not only made cutting-edge social marketing materials, but also helped facilitate the company’s meteoric rise to #2 on the Inc. 500 list of the fastest growing private companies. It was at this time – the peak of Quest’s success – that Lisa began suffering from debilitating gut issues. Things were so bad that she could only stomach 4 ingredients for 6 months! Though she’s still working through some problems, it was keto that absolutely saved her life! Now as co-founder and president of Impact Theory, her mission is to create impact in the world and empower women of all ages to see and believe that they can be anything they set their minds to.

In this episode, Lisa shares how Quest Nutrition got started and the trial and error that eventually led to the success of a billion dollar company. She gives advice on how to know when to give up on something and how to know when to keep pushing through. Lisa shares her top tips for going into business with a significant other, friend, or family member, and the importance of agreeing on roles and setting boundaries. Lisa also talks about her health journey with severe gut issues, how she eventually found out she had SIBO, and how a ketogenic diet allowed her to begin healing. We talk about how to balance health struggles with pursuing your passions, how it can impact our relationships, and how it can change your relationship with your body. We talk about having to choose between health and aesthetics, her experience with elimination diets, and much more!
