    3. Building Your Business Intuitively with Angelyn Toth

    3. Building Your Business Intuitively with Angelyn Toth

    Have you ever found yourself in a job that feels soul-sucking?

    Do you have a dream or a vision that has been following you around, yet to be manifested? 

    Are you interested in building your business intuitively, rather than purely from a place of logic and strategy? 

    Then you are going to LOVE this episode!

    My guest, Angelyn Toth, is one of my business mentors, the Founder of Xenia Creative Development Centre on Bowen Island, and one of the top leaders in our company. She has received numerous leadership awards in Univera including the Associate of the Year and the YunHo Lee Servant Leadership award. 

    Angelyn spent years in the corporate world, but knew it wasn’t her calling. She was mentored through her own journey of personal development and eventually became “unemployable.” She had a vision (for her retreat centre) that followed her around for about ten years before it manifested into reality. 

    Ten years into her retreat centre, things were not going very well… in her words, “she wasn’t a very good business woman.” After a complete spiritual surrender, Univera came into her life. She wasn’t looking for anything else and she was NOT interested in network marketing. 

    Listen in to hear about the pivotal moment when her soul was activated and she felt a resonance to build a business with Univera. 

    You’ll also learn: 

    • How her objections to the business model were overcome
    • How she built her business quickly 
    • The two personal growth tools that have helped her the most
    • The most important thing to handle and overcome to create success
    • How she feels about ‘hustling’ in her business, and what she does instead

    I know you’re going to love this conversation, like I did. 

    You can find Angelyn’s work at www.angelyntoth.com

    < EPISODE 01: SHOW NOTES >

    To start off the podcast, I might as well introduce myself! 

    You’ll hear a little about the struggles I faced early in life and how those shaped me into the person I am today, with the desire to live a healthy, wealthy and happy life and help others do the same.

    You’ll  also hear about some of the twists and turns that led me to being a University drop-out, a College Honour Roll student, a snowboard instructor, and eventually finding my way into network marketing and saying ‘f*uck it’ to any kind of conventional life. 

    Yep, I might as well get the swearing out of the way right off the hop!

    The superfood you need to know about if you’ve ever had digestive challenges

    The superfood you need to know about if you’ve ever had digestive challenges

    If you’ve ever struggled with digestive issues, you know how uncomfortable and disruptive they are.

    Fun, work, relationships, family – everything suffers. Lame! Being free includes being free of health challenges and feeling awesome every day. Everyone wants to be happy, right? I believe the foundation of happiness is feeling good.

    The sad thing is, digestive issues are on the rise. I’m amazed at how many people struggle with digestion. It’s not that hard to figure out why: everyday we eat and drink things that aren’t good for us… while it’s a great goal to eventually eliminate these problematic foods from our diets, instead of constantly stressing over what we should and shouldn’t eat (stress makes everything worse), what if there was one powerful superfood that you could consume daily to promote repair, healing, and restore balance in your digestive system?

     

    I’m a big fan of simplicity, and implementing small positive changes on the road to bigger changes.

     

    I hope that if you’re reading this blog, you have intentions of assessing your diet and making changes to support better digestion, but for now… start with understanding the top 15 health benefits of this wonder plant and find out how you can get your hands on the best of the best.

     

    I’d never heard of drinking aloe vera until…

    aloe juice drop close up

    …several years ago when my mom was introduced to an aloe drink by her friend. She’d been dealing with some acid (indigestion) issues which she realized were limiting her vocal range (she sings in a jazz choir). After drinking a high quality, potent aloe vera product over several weeks, she noticed improvements in her vocal range and has been singing without issues ever since.

    Fortunately, I’ve been blessed when it comes to digestion, BUT, I used to deal with a lot of mucus/ phlegm, especially in the mornings. I know… gross! Since drinking aloe I have noticed a huge improvement AND the more I learn about this plant, the more I want to consume it every. single. day. forever.

     

    15 benefits of Aloe Vera

    1. strengthens the immune system (about 80% of your immune system is found in your gut!)
    2. assists with almost all types of digestive illnesses/disorders
    3. kills yeast (candida) and provides prebiotic benefits (creates a good environment for beneficial bacteria: probiotics, to thrive)
    4. improves digestion and absorption of nutrients (it pretty important to absorb the food you’re eating, right?)
    5. balances pH levels in the GI tract
    6. balances blood sugar levels
    7. increases bioavailability of naturally occurring antioxidants in foods and supplements
    8. provides antibacterial, antifungal, antiviral and antiparasitic activity
    9. reduces inflammation
    10. activates the liver to produce glutathione (a powerful antioxidant with many functions)
    11. contributes to kidney health
    12. stimulates collagen production and lubricates joints, brain, and nervous system
    13. improves the health of skin and nails (more youthful skin, anyone?)
    14. naturally detoxifies, including facilitating the removal of mercury through the urine and GI tract
    15. helps with weight loss and muscle gain

    Now, if this list is a bit too lengthy for you, you can just remember this simple acronym: MAGIC.

    M = supports the Microbiome

    A = enhances Absorption of nutrients through the gut lining

    G = helps stablize blood Glucose levels

    I = enhances Immunity

    C = stimulates Collagen production

     

    By now you’ve probably read enough to know whether you want to experience these benefits for yourself. If you are sick and tired of feeling crappy and if you want your life back from the unpredictability of a digestive system that is out of whack, then its time to take action. But…

    …not all aloe drinks are created equal.

    Most aloe products on the market contain a 200:1 ratio of water to aloe. In fact, something can be labeled “pure aloe” even if it’s 95% water and 5% aloe! The product I use is more like 200:1, aloe to water; highly concentrated, potent, and pure. I also discovered that this aloe is harvested and processed within six hours to ensure bioactivity in the end product.

    My favourite aloe drink is called Aloe Select Mango and can be purchased here.

    {Full disclosure, I receive a commission from sales on this site. I aligned myself with Univera because I believe in the quality of their products and I am eager to share the health benefits I’ve experienced with others. Read more about how you, too, can align with Univera if you feel the same way.}

    Or, for more information + a short video, go here to learn what makes Univera’s Aloe product uniquely effective.
