In this episode, Joel sits down with Carla Reeves who is a coach and mentor that helps hyper achievers who want to build a business without negatively impacting their personal lives. She helps them to find and maintain balance. Carla explains how her own experience led to her pursuing this passion.
During the podcast, she shares valuable strategies and tips that anyone can use to help them to live a bold, authentic life that is aligned with their values. Something that automatically leads to success in both their personal and business lives. She explains how to be the entrepreneur of your own life (life-preneurship), which includes learning to use the skills that make you successful at work to achieve success in your personal life.
Often, friction within relationships goes hand in hand with success. But it does not need to be this way. In the podcast, Carla explains how to avoid this situation.
Many people keep bumping up against the same barriers in life, repeating the same mistakes.
Most people have a survival model they developed in crisis, which is OK. But it is not healthy to keep using that model when you are not in crisis.
Everyone has habits. How you treat people, use money, what you eat etc. That´s not always bad. But as life changes your habits also need to change.
Journalling enables you to be honest about what you think and feel. The more you write freely the easier it is to also be your true self in life.
Journalling empties the trash. It gets rid of the noise, which builds up in your head.
Writing down what you want to achieve from a conversation, meeting or activity is incredibly powerful.
Putting your thoughts down on paper slows you down enough to see what is really important.
Play, adventure and relaxation all create fuel to help you to work better, so make time for them.
Before you do something, ask yourself – Does this align with the life I want to create? Doing this acts as a filter which keeps your personal life aligned with your values and you on track.
When you get your thinking, your behaviour and your actions all working in the same direction with your values, amazing things start to happen.
‘I had become a master of making everything look good on the outside. But I didn´t know how to take care of the inside. ´
‘The first piece of work I do with people is to uncover what I call their survival model.’
‘The secret to confidence is kind of realising that nobody has it. Everybody´s brain is trying to protect them.’

ABOUT THE GUEST
For years, Carla felt at the mercy of her circumstances. She was a master at making everything look good on the outside but inside felt empty. Carla was consumed by work that she loved.
In short, she was out of balance but didn’t understand why or how to change. Carla knew there had to be a better way of doing life. So, she took a deep look into what was running her life. The choices she made after that point changed everything in the most amazing way.
She made it a mission to clean her life up from the insid
