I’ve got a really exciting podcast to share with you today! I’m chatting with the accomplished Dr. Sheila Farhang. Dr. Sheila is a board-certified dermatologist and cosmetic surgeon whose focus spans millennial skincare, integrative skincare and cutting-edge procedures. In addition to her work in the field of dermatology, Dr. Sheila is also a popular social media influencer (you’ll definitely want to check out her Instagram account!) and entrepreneur.

 

Dr. Sheila and I chatted about so many different topics — from integrative dermatology and entrepreneurship, to learning to trust your gut and building a strong social media presence — but here are some of my favorite takeaways:

  • The mind-body connection is so strong that what’s happening on the inside is often manifested on the outside.
  • Hard work makes life as an entrepreneur possible and fulfilling; when you find yourself struggling, remember your why and let that energize you.
  • If you focus on the past — in particular its mistakes — you’re not moving forward.
  • Healthy living means living with intention and constantly revisiting and reevaluating what is important.
