You started your business because you were fed up with your j.o.b.
You were tired of –
- Not being there for your spouse/kids.
- Working specific hours so someone else could pull in the big bucks.
- Being available 24/7 for someone else.
- Being dependent on someone else to make money.
- Having to share a bathroom with other people.
Your dream for having your own business may have looked something like –
- Working only the hours you want to
- Spending uninterrupted time with your family
- Taking real vacations
- Having time for yourself
- Being able to eat bon-bons and watch your shows whenever you wanted to
Only the reality after starting your business looks like –
- Feeling guilty when you don’t spend time with family (but also when you do because you should be working on your business)
- Being busy all.the.time
- You haven’t had a vacation since you started
- You forgot what ‘me’ time is
- You only enjoy your show with chocolate melting on your hands and eyes so heavy because you are so wore out at the end of the day.
What would your life look like if you had
more ‘me’ time while being more focused
and taking decisive action in your business?
It wasn’t until I started to BE the leader of my business that I began to see results and enjoy what I was doing. Now I help other business owners BE in control of their business using my background as a psychologist, marketer and my fabulous no nonsense personality.
On the personal side, I enjoy anything chocolate and caramel, raising two young humans (most days I enjoy them) and having conversations on the patio with my husband along with a glass of red wine.

If you would only look on the bright side of things and put your rose colored glasses on, you life would be all sunshine and unicorns. Is this really how optimism works? This week we explore what optimism really is and how you can change the way you look at good and bad events to be more optimistic.
This week I chat with Mark Struczewski, AKA Mister Productivity, about all things distractions, multitasking, and giving yourself a ‘notification cleanse’.
Change can be difficult in even the best of circumstances. This is in part because our brains like it to live on easy street. In this episode we discuss how our brains can hinder our efforts to change and how we can beat our brain to make changes.
