Amber Hawley is a licensed therapist and lifestyle strategist who works with entrepreneurial individuals and couples with the emotional side of business. She is the owner of a therapy practice in Silicon Valley, host of The Easily Distracted Entrepreneur and Couples Fix podcasts, wife, mom of three kids, and Marvel movie super fan. Amber originally worked in the tech industry but her love for people led her to pursue a career where meaningful relationships are at the center of everything she does.
In today’s episode of The Lean Out Your Business Podcast, Amber shares how you can shift from being distracted to focused in your life and your business. Amber works a lot with clients who have ADHD but the truth is, modern entrepreneurship leaves us all feeling distracted, as FOMO, shiny pennies and social media vie for our attention daily. In this conversation with Crista, Amber shares reasons why entrepreneurs may subconsciously be self-sabotaging their business, why we say yes to too many things and how you can determine if your next “yes” is really something you should commit to or if it’s just a distraction.
