We have all been sick or experiencing some health concern that we pushed off to the side because we are too busy, have a million things on our to-do list, the kids’ activities come first, etc. But are we doing ourselves any favors by pushing it off? No!
Today, Susan Salenger, author and famously known as @grandama.gains on TikTok, joined me to discuss her book SIDELINED: How Women Can Navigate A Broken Healthcare System. Her book details the ins and outs of finding the right doctor, how to conduct appointments as the patient, and so much more!
About the Guest:
Susan Salenger is the author and researcher behind SIDELINED: How Women Can Navigate A Broken Healthcare System. Sidelined examines the many ways in which some women manage and sometimes mismanage their healthcare. (Release date: April 2022) Susan explores how women, typically the medical gatekeepers for their families, tend to be extremely conscientious about taking care of themselves, yet at the same time, inadvertently undermine their own care. They often hesitate to call the doctor when they don’t feel well and worry that their doctor’s visit will take time away from their families or work. They may hesitate to ask doctors the necessary questions and don’t always comply with the doctor’s instructions. Salenger’s research reveals how conflicted many women are about the medical decisions they ultimately make. Born and raised in Los Angeles, Susan attended UCLA to study English. After graduation, she worked alongside her husband Fred for 25 years at their production company, Salenger Films, which produced corporate training and development films distributed worldwide. Today, at age 80, Susan lives in Northern California near her incredible family, including her two daughters, four grandchildren, a cat named Max, and a dog named JD (Salenger). When she is not speaking about her book or spending time with family and friends, you will find Susan power-lifting to stay in shape.
About the Host:
Following the crumbs in the chaos is a full-time job as a Productivity Coach. As a busy mom of three and the founder of Chaos N’ Cookies, keeping moms from crumbling is my main objective. After gaining 10+ years of experience as a Director of Marketing helping build multiple 6 & 7-figure businesses for other women I’ve created the Chaos Control System to equip moms to overcome their own objections so they can live the life they want to live and start that business they have always wanted. The Family Playbook, or standard operating procedure, is the tool every mama needs to save time and stress-less when chaos ensues at home.
For new biz owners, I also help simplify systems on social media and other business platforms to automate processes to get their business up and running quickly and efficiently with how-tos and hands-on coaching. I have helped hundreds of women to be more productive and self-sufficient in their homes and businesses allowing them to reclaim control of the chaos.
