    Working with your creative cycles {261}

    Working with your creative cycles {261}

    What if you could work with your natural creative cycles to help your life & work feel easier? I've noticed sometimes I'm hugely creative, and other times I'm more suited for admin work or doing something less creatively intense. What if instead of beating yourself up over not being "creative enough" and forcing yourself to produce, you could work with these natural cycles?

    Letting go of business clutter {259}

    Autumn is a time of letting go, and this week we're exploring letting go of excess clutter in your business. Over time we accumulate habits, recurring payments, marketing activities, products and services, and clients that don't add a lot to our business joy or bottom line. This is the season to streamline and let go of that which doesn't bring you joy, or profit! We'll look at letting go of subscriptions, marketing activities, needy clients, products or services that aren't profitable or you're no longer excited about, appointments, groups, obligations and more! Join me to create some more space in your business to create the life & work you really want.

    Have you outgrown your business? {258}

    Have you outgrown your business? {258}

    Have you ever felt like you've outgrown your business? That it just doesn't light you up or excite you the way it used to? As an entrepreneur who was likely really excited and motivated about your business for a long time - this can be concerning! What happens if you never want to work again? What if you can't find the motivation to consistently work on or grow your business? Is it just going to start feeling like a JOB? 
    In this episode, we talk about the feeling of outgrowing your business. We'll discuss how to know if you're really outgrowing your business, or if you're just hitting a limiting belief or fear. Then we'll discuss multiple strategies to move forward (it doesn't mean you have to shut down your business!) including how to pivot your business to broaden its topic or shift the topic alltogether.

    Slowing Down & High Achievers {256}

    Slowing Down & High Achievers {256}

    When you hear the idea of slowing down, do you feel like "I wish I could do that" or "that's a nice idea but really not for me"? Today we're talking about slowing down - living and working at a slower pace. I personally discovered that by slowing down my own work gained more depth and richness, in spite of the fact that the "old me" from 10-20 years ago would never even think about pacing down as something positive and productive. I want to talk today about high achievers as I consider myself of being one and is it really possible for us to slow down.

Thinking outside of the box!

I LOVE the Wellpreneur podcast! One of my favorite episodes was the Want to work with moms and self care episode. As an empty nester mom and retreat leader for women, I’m always trying to dive deeper on what it means to take care of myself as a woman and discover who I am in this new phase of being an empty nester mom. I relate to the societal pressures of being a mom, but this episode helped me think outside the box of finding my own value and sitting with the ideas of what it means to be a mom that society creates for us. Thank you for this insight. I can’t wait to listen more!

A powerful model for being

I discovered Jo Tucker through this show, and now I’m a huge fan! Amanda and Jo’s conversation was fantastic — I learned so much. I love Amanda’s emphasis on flow rather than forcefulness. I’ve been unlearning the idea that I need to “force” things to happen in my business and life, rather than letting them happen. I don’t see a lot of models for flow thinking, and it’s something I’m working on this year. I’m grateful Amanda’s available and this show are available as a resource!
