    [BUSINESS] Values-Driven Work-Life Integration

    [BUSINESS] Values-Driven Work-Life Integration

    I’m willing to bet that at some point in your career, you’ve googled the term “work life balance.” The elusive perfect balance between the time and energy we spend on our work and the time and energy we put into our personal lives feels like that rare unicorn that we all chase, yet no one seems to catch. 

    For good reason, this balance is even more difficult to achieve for entrepreneurs and business owners. This is why we’re diving into the topic of values-driven work-life integration in this episode.  

    My dad died of cancer when I was 11. Years later, I asked myself, “What would my dad give for the opportunities I’m wasting right now?” My life changed that day. I became more intentional. I want the same for you.

    [LIFE] The Brain Science of Personal Empowerment

    [LIFE] The Brain Science of Personal Empowerment

    Have you ever wanted to change your behavior or go after a goal, yet you found it so difficult to do it? So many times, we get down on ourselves when this happens, yet brain science shows us that habits or patterns our mind formed over time are at the core of the difficulty we have in changing our own behavior. 
    This week on the podcast, we’re speaking with Adele Spraggon, international speaker, behavior change expert, and author of the book “Shift: 4 Steps to Personal Empowerment.” In our conversation, we talk about what brain patterns are and the powerful role they play in our behavior. Adele gives us a step-by-step process for beginning to make changes in our own brain patterns in order to move in the direction we want to go in life. 
    We end with a deep discussion on the importance of distancing ourselves from our own automatic thoughts and learning to bore into our emotions for the sake of gaining personal insight. You won’t want to miss it.

    [BUSINESS] Creating Values-Based Client Boundaries

    [BUSINESS] Creating Values-Based Client Boundaries

    Get a pen. Write this down. “Resentment grows where a boundary needs to be planted.” We all have “that” person in our lives who over-steps, asks too much, and doesn’t give in return. But, what if “that” person is a client? 

    This episode is Part #2 of a 3-part series exploring the importance of having clear values to guide you in business. In this episode, we’re exploring the importance of setting values-based boundaries with your clients. 

    Not only will values-based boundaries keep you sane, but they’ll help you provide a better experience to your customers. I hope you’ll join me for this important conversation.

Self-care that Gets Me Out of My Own Way

I love a podcast where the conversation is less prescribed, more free flowing, where the host and guest seem to truly be engaged and learning new things from each other. April breaks down psychology and behavior in a way that helps me get out of my own way! Several episodes (including KC Davis!) have been game changers and setting realistic expectations for myself. P.s. I will never not make coffee the night before ☕️ Thank you! 🙏🏽🦋 — Jen G

Awesome!

April does an amazing job of extracting the best of the best out of her guests allowing me as the listener to take the insights and put them into actionable items in my own life. I particularly enjoyed episode 189 with Will Moore of Moore Momentum. Keep it up!

Thank you

The first podcast I heard from April was with Cheryl. I decided to listen during a long run and realized I was smiling the entire time. I got home so excited to integrate writings down things that I’m grateful for and what were my fave moments from the day before. Not only am I starting this, I’m starting this with my kids (however we will do it in the evening). I’m also purchasing the music!
I also started listening to the coaching episode and can not wait to share with my peer leaders on Monday!! Thank you for the great experience and I look forward to listening to more.
