Episode 27: Entrepreneurship + Chronic Illness
Allison Puryear has a lot on her plate. She's a mom to a toddler and a kindergartener and a partner to a man she assures me is the best on the planet. Her private practice consulting firm, Abundance Practice-Building, has helped tens of thousands of people in over 30 countries. Allison also owns a thriving therapy practice.
In the midst of building this life, or as she says, maybe because of building this life, she was diagnosed with Hashimoto's Thyroiditis last year. She's new to this diagnosis and, as we discuss, learning to balance the necessary rest with her natural drive, playing with a shifting identity, and truly prioritizing the important relationships in her life.
“I want to seem like I have it all together but this is a space where I’m frequently saying, ‘I don’t know.’” — ALLISON PURYEAR
- What Allison learned from her Hashimoto’s diagnosis after years of “hustling” as an entrepreneur
- How she had to shift her understanding of success
- How her condition helped her face her feelings of not being enough
- Allison’s desire to show “newly diagnosed” NWIO’ers what it’s like to not have it all figured out
- The power of doing things just to do them
- An honest look at feeling lazy when health challenges affect motivation and energy
- Brain fog humor
