In this episode…

No one works harder than an entrepreneur, but that is a blessing and curse. So many entrepreneurs work hard to keep their businesses thriving but forget to take care of themselves. Yuri Elkaim, Founder and CEO of Healthpreneur, says that’s a big mistake.

But that’s not the only mistake entrepreneurs are making. For example, many health professionals outsource their marketing way too early without learning the ropes. This is just one reason why many of them struggle in business — they don’t understand how to market and position themselves and think someone else can do it for them. What other mistakes should you avoid in order to lead a healthier business (and life)?

In this Inspired Insider Podcast episode, Dr. Jeremy Weisz sits down with the Founder and CEO of Healthpreneur, Yuri Elkaim. They discuss improving your health while growing your business, the best supplements to consider, business mistakes many health professionals make, and more insights and stories.

I always like to mention other guests that have been on inspired Insider. And since you are I don’t you know, I don’t know you don’t love the term guru but like a health expert. Some of the other past guests a Wim Hof. On that’s a great, great episode The Iceman has over 20 World Records for cold exposure. I think it was like a two hour interview, we had Dr. Loren Cordain, author of the Paleo diet, maybe we’ll talk about mid this some of the things that URI agrees with and maybe disagrees with with Dr. Cordains book and p90x founder, Tony Horton talks about how he started off as a street mine, actually before they sold millions and millions of p90x and you know, you’re he is a big fan of this is not easy. Building a business is not easy. And let’s not pretend it’s easy, and that he made his food and rent money as a street mine before he made it, you know, which took years. And Ben Greenfield, there’s some great videos of Yuri talking to Ben Greenfield actually out there. And Ben talks about how he built a cult following in the health and fitness space. So that many more and this is episode is brought to you by Rise25. At Rise25 we help businesses give to and connect to your dream 100 relationships and how do we do that? We help you run your podcast. You know, for me, you’re the number one thing in my life is relationships. I’m always looking at ways to give to my best relationships, I found no better way to do that over the past decade than the profile the people and the companies I most admire on this planet and let them share with the world what they’re working on. So if you thought about podcasting, you should. If you have questions, go to Email us we’re happy to answer anything that you can throw at us. I’ve been doing it for over a decade. And so as my business partner, John, so without further ado, Yuri Elkaim is a New York Times best selling author, former professional athlete, business strategist, and founder and CEO of Healthpreneur, like I was mentioning, and Yuri’s, his journey in health and business combined perfectly unfortunately, because I know you’re you had a lot of health issues as a teenager, and you lost all your hair at 17 due to an autoimmune condition. And, you know, when you’re in your teenage years, you know, fingerprick can seem like a big deal. And so when that happens, it’s can be traumatizing for someone who just wants to fit in and, you know, just be amongst the people. But he played professional soccer in his early 20s. And that propelled him into health and fitness. And, you know, he carried that approach and built a successful online health empire. And I heard about Yuri years and years ago, like I was watching some of your health videos, because I geek out on health related stuff must be over a decade ago. And he had a following of over 500,000 people to better their health. He had a platform he wrote best selling books, he was on Dr. Oz and the doctors in 2018. He sold that business. And he runs Healthpreneur, which is a world class team of coaches helping health professionals in and you know, kind of get to the high six and seven figure their virtual practices and create transformative results. And listen, I experienced that. As a chiropractor to hear. It’s like if you’re a naturopathic doctor or a chiropractor, if you are trading time for dollars, and you just want to make a bigger impact. One on one with people is a great way but one to many in the stuff that URI helps teach people can help you transform even more live so you can check out Yuri. Thanks for joining me.
