38. Body Burnout After Soul-Sucking Relationships with Jeannie Savage

Filly & Chris are joined with Jeannie Savage, founder & author of The Strategic Bookkeeper and Cloud9 Strategic Bookkeeping. We first met Jeannie back in 2021 when we did a business program together. She is a fire-cracker, power-house entrepreneur, and has a pretty extraordinary body burnout story (severe allergies, asthma, fatigue and myriad of other symptoms) & recovery journey. She also has a special interest in helping successful entrepreneurs overcome & prevent burnout, by championing self-care and work-life-balance. 


About Jeannie Savage 


Jeannie is an award-winning Strategic Bookkeeper, author, certified trainer and speaker.

She’s the CEO and brainchild behind The Strategic Bookkeeper which exists to help Bookkeepers build and sustain a thriving practice. She’s also the CEO of Cloud9 Strategic, and bookkeeping service in Australia.

She’s been in practice for 13 years and she scaled into a lifestyle business after just 5 years – so she could live her dream on her terms – and it has been awesome! 

During her time in practice, she’s perfected everything from building a brand, attracting and retaining high value clients, selling succession products, systemising and - building, leading and managing productive teams. 

Her vision for you is ultimately to help you live your dream on your terms – through her book, podcast, booking keeping service and her mentoring program. 


In today’s episode, Jeannie talks to Chris & Filly about:


  • Her body burnout story, starting right back as a “sick” kid with asthma and allergies (she died once as a kid!), and how things got worse later in life when she was suffocating in a marriage that was not working for her.
  • How her sister’s death (dropped dead of a heart-attack) shook Jeannie to find happiness in her life. 
  • How she overcame her health issues when she began prioritising herself, and filling up her physical, mental and spiritual cups.
  • We dive deeper into her upbringing - how she was always in “survival” mode with her health and her place in her family, even “saving” the family business and growing it from 10 million to 100 million dollars a year as a teen. 
  • How she helps other business owners prioritise their health, while growing profitable businesses.
