Sounds like you have brain fog - an ailment that troubles a lot of entrepreneurs. Now you might blame this issue on a ton of other things, but your brain fog has a lot to do with your sleep - or lack thereof.


What are some of the habits that lead to brain fog? How can we clear it up for good? How do we stop stealing tomorrow’s productivity from ourselves?


In this episode, we’re joined by health consultant, Tanessa Shears. She shares how we can get the best ROI from our health, how to make educated personalized decisions and how to create clear, more focused thinking.
