Business, Birth Control + Fertility Tips w/ Functional Nutrition Therapist English Goldsborough
Show Notes Chapter Markers

English Goldsborough is a Functional Nutritional Therapy Practitioner who specializes in helping couples conceive through natural methods. She started her business with the assumption that if you just open your doors people will come - and quickly realized she’d have to market her services more effectively if she wanted to sign clients.

In this interview, English shares what worked - and what didn’t work - to get her business off the ground, and we also have a great conversation around birth control. As someone who recently got off the pill after 9 years, I was curious to hear her thoughts on hormonal contraceptives and how they affect our body and our fertility.

It’s your weekly dose of business inspo + fertility tips all in one!

Join us as we discuss:

(1) What went wrong & why English heard crickets when she first launched her business

(2) The “switch” that finally allowed her to sign on clients & see business growth

(3) How to stay motivated through the highs & lows of entrepreneurship, and constantly hearing “no”

(4) How to balance wanting to offer multiple programs in your business without confusing your audience

(5) What is Functional Nutrition Therapy & how different foods can affect your fertility

(6) My journey of getting off hormonal birth control + what to expect

(7) Does being on hormonal birth control affect your fertility?

(8) The lack of education we receive as women about our cycles and our fertility (spoiler alert: you can’t get pregnant every day of your cycle)

(9) What I’m now using for non-hormonal birth control after getting off the pill
