No one could honestly not be more qualified in the themes of The Entrepology Podcast than today’s guest, Anne Matthews.

Anne is a mother of four, a badass business owner, and a Chinese Medicine Practitioner with credentials out the wazoo! She has a clinic here, in the GTA, called Energy Tree Studios, with a particular focus on fertility.

In today’s episode, we got down on a variety of topics, including how old you need to actually be to have a baby, how to balance children and entrepreneurship, and whether or not we should be freezing our eggs as entrepreneurs or just working to preserve egg quality.

This interview was so incredibly fascinating and it crossed the entire spectrum of having kids and running a business from preconception to literally having four of them running around! We covered all sorts of topics and got into all of the juicy details between — so be sure to join Anne and me as we dive in deep!
