    [Strategy Call] Balancing Family and Business with Roxanne Ferber

    As a busy mom balancing family and business life is challenging enough, but when you don’t have a workspace that promotes productivity, it’s even more difficult. That’s why episode 51 of The Positively Living Podcast is about optimizing life and business through the lens of a Productivity Boost session! 
    In this episode of The Positively Living Podcast, you are listening in on a coaching session with mom blogger Roxanne Ferber. We identify the hurdles of combining mom and biz life with working from home, discuss the importance of working in a flow state, and I provide actionable steps to create a designated zone that works.  
    Do you find yourself procrastinating? Feeling stuck or utterly overwhelmed? Want to make a change, but not even sure where to start?

    Creating a space in your home to get into that flow state of productivity. How Roxanne strives for inclusivity within her The Whatever Mom community and how a creative workspace will allow her to do just that. Setting boundaries around the times that are vital for you to focus on your work without distractions. Inventorying the types of tasks you do on a day to day basis and breaking them down into what type of energy and environment you need to complete these tasks.  I’m so grateful for all that Roxanne does to create a supportive mom community and that she willingly shared a bit of her own chaos with us today.
