    EP040 - 4-steps to Ditch all the overwhelm 

    EP040 - 4-steps to Ditch all the overwhelm 

    So much to do😱 so little time 😩 How to enjoy your nights & weekends without feeling behind 🤯
    (Fast track to all the free resources in our Bosslife Cafe -> https://bit.ly/productive-week-access)
    .
    Try this technique to empty your psychic ram (all those thoughts that don't let you think?!) so that you can enjoy life, no guilt, and boosted productivity for Monday!
    ++++
    Here's the thing overwhelm comes from:
    (1) Constantly multitasking - our brain does not take a break b/c it’s constantly trying to make a decision
    (2) Indecision - when you doubt yourself the brain enters into a loophole.
    Many times we are indecisive due to lack of direction ….
    .
    For today, I challenge you to stop-multitasking and overworking yourself..
    .
    B/c the reality is that unmanaged overwhelmed can lead to anxiety and that it's a problem... a box of Pandora that you don't want to open.
    Just google anxiety and health, and you'll start taking relaxing and having fun way more seriously 😉
    .
    For now, explore these
    1) Work in 90 min time block and take 15 min breaks
    2) Make a list of things pending, aka "the parking lot," every time you need to stop, it will help you resume way faster.
    3) At the end of the day, make a list of everything that you wanted to complete that day and circle the top 3.
    4) Start with the top 3 the next day.
    .
    People who are overwhelmed not only spread themselves too thin, but their energy gets diluted. Don't be afraid of disappointing others for saying "no," we get one life to live and they may be as scared when it's their turn ;-)

    EP038 - How to re-discover your thing With Karem Mieses

    EP038 - How to re-discover your thing With Karem Mieses

    In a world full of noise when it comes to pivoting your business and even re-inventing yourself, it is of utmost importance to assess (or reassess) what the heck is it that we really want to do.

    As business owners, entrepreneurs, visionaries & leaders, it’s time to stop randomly putting offers together to hustle for income on a month-by-month basis. The times that we are living now are calling for us to be intentional and strategic not only about how we are going to make ends meet in 4 to 8 weeks but how we are going to thrive in the next 6 months and get momentum for the next 3 years.

    In this episode, I want to guide you through a 3-steps process that I’ve used every time that I’ve had to re-invent myself. No surprise that 4 weeks ago I had to go through it again to decide on my  "ONE THING" now, aka the right product or service.

    Let’s figure out together now what YOUR ONE THING.

    𝐇𝐨𝐰 𝐭𝐨 𝐤𝐧𝐨𝐰 𝐢𝐟 𝐭𝐡𝐢𝐬 𝐢𝐬 𝐟𝐨𝐫 𝐲𝐨𝐮? If you answer YES to at least 2 of these, listen to this episode:

    - Are you a small business owner & service provider in need of clarity about what to do next?

    - Do you feel that you need to pivot?

    - Are you unsure about your message right now?

    -Do you need to generate income from zero and pronto?

    Or

    - Do you have so many ideas right now that you don’t know where to start?

    Let's dive in!

    Whether it be zeroing in on your profitability or moving forward with confidence in your purpose, this Fearless Clarity Episode will help move you out of the space of inaction and indecisiveness.

    Or

    - Do you have so many ideas right now that you don’t know where to start?

    If you answered ‘YES’ to any of the above, join me tomorrow for a dose of FEARLESS CLARITY!

    Lack of clarity is tied not only to procrastination but to anxiety, which leads not only lead to poor results, but anxiety can adversely affect your immune system.
