Energy. It’s something that entrepreneurs can never get enough of…well that, and more hours in the day.
Today’s Deviant Expert Interview is with friend and co-collaborator, Natalie Kling. This is not your run-of-the-mill interview with a detox and nutrition expert. Nope. That’s not how we roll. Natalie debunks myths about metabolism and shares the real key to unlocking more creativity, energy and productive results than you can imagine.
Dig into this video where Natalie and I talk about:
- what gives us energy
- how to maintain it
- the myth of metabolism
- the real key to high vibration creativity and health
So, did you learn anything new from Nat? If so, share in the comments.

Born an illegitimate female with no rights into poverty, María Eva Duarte de Perón, overcame insurmountable odds to lead a nation by her husband’s side because she allowed herself to want…to desire.
She is a controversial character because she wasn’t a saint. She was a woman of the people. That, in essence, became her strength because it enabled her to radically influence and reform the rights of the poor.
In addition, she eventually changed the rights of illegitimate children in Argentina forever by getting the term abolished from birth certificates and replaced by “natural.”
Revered by the common people, who affectionately called her “Evita,” she was also committed to women’s suffrage. She said, “The nation’s government has just handed me the bill that grants us our civil rights. I am receiving it before you, certain that I am accepting this on behalf of all Argentinean women, and I can feel my hands tremble with joy as they grasp the laurel proclaiming victory.”
She was human in her flaws and mortality, but she was transcendant in her fight, spirit, devotion to the people and love of her nation. Hers is a legacy worthy of celebration and study.

I have a three-year old son. He likes to destroy stuff. He collides bad guys into good guys and knocks over towers. It must be innately ingrained in boys this desire to crash and bash things. Watching him though, it got me thinking about why it can be good and even healthy to embrace destruction.
Trying to build on top of a bad foundation is dangerous and a dreadful long-term solution…because it isn’t a long term solution. You’re forever trying to hide the dents, the leaks the weaknesses. You are polishing rust. It may seem like it’s the cost-effective and most productive idea at the time, but consider how much more it costs to bring in a repair person every month or how much time is wasted regularly with the quick fix.
Even in a controlled environment, destruction is loud and messy. It attracts attention and can inconvenience both the destroyer, the consumer and the casual passers by. It takes patience, timing and a plan for what will replace it.
Embracing destruction, however, clears the way for a new foundation, a new opportunity, new materials and new life to be born into the world of your business, your marketing and your strategy. It takes commitment and it shows your market that you care enough to start fresh with new eyes, new usefulness for them and are not willing to cut corners to do so.
The next time you have a problem in your business or marketing, step back and think about whether this is something that needs a Band-Aid, a new perspective or just downright needs a wrecking ball taken to it in order to be re-built anew. I find it usually helps to have Hot Wheels, Megatron and The Green Lantern nearby in case you’re stumped.
