Melissa Houston / Janis Isaman

“They’re often linked together, pain in our body and pain in our life.”

— Janis Isaman

How you work impacts not only your business, but your health. Are you focusing on the right things?

My guest, Janis Isaman, is the founder of My Body Couture, a one-on-one private studio where she offers customized movement and nutrition coaching. Certified in both business and nutrition, Janis has been featured in Reader’s Digest, Prevention, and Women’s Health.

As an entrepreneur and solo parent, Janis has a wealth of knowledge to share about assessing risks, managing burnout, and prioritizing what really matters.

Janis’s earliest entrepreneurial lessons came from her parents, who were farmers. In addition to modelling hard work and dedication, they taught her to always lay a foundation of savings to use for years when the metaphorical (or literal) crop is hailed out. She also learned to invest in herself, and has done so through her many trainings and certifications. 

And some of her most challenging lessons have come from her position as a lone parent who is also an entrepreneur. 

Managing burnout is a key consideration — something that Janis has learned firsthand. Burnout is mental and physical, and can take you out of the game completely if you ignore it for too long. “It’s easier to stop for three weeks than it is to have to recover for three years,” Janis advises.

Her most fruitful lesson, and the one she’s most excited to share, is the importance of prioritization. Janis’s incredible ‘abundance audit’ exercise has helped her to pare down the things in her life that offer zero or negative value, and focus instead on maximizing emotional return.

Listen to the episode and learn how to perform your own abundance audit!
