You deserve to

love your life


The Push & Pull of Loving What You Do

When I tap into the collective right now, people are exhausted. 

I’m having conversations with my clients and close friends, and I see that there is a desire for deep rest and recovery from a very full year. 

And it makes sense because we were so excited to gather with our loved ones again. But that also made for an extra social, overly committed season with a lot of activities.

We rallied to show up for our businesses; we rallied to show up for our families. But most likely, we didn’t rally to show up for ourselves.

Or maybe you got sick and it was forced rest, not intentional, guilt-free rest. So now, you need a vacation from your vacation.

I invite you to release any guilt if you’re in this season of exhaustion and overwhelm. What I know is building an anti-hustle business and life is a practice, not a quick fix.

It’s typical for us to have push seasons, but that also means we need rest seasons. I cover these topics in my book She Builds in chapter 11 “Refill Your Well” and chapter 12, “Embrace Your Pace.” 

That’s why I’m excited for you to meet Andrea who is juggling motherhood and being her own boss as a seasoned entrepreneur and author. 

If you’ve ever found yourself juggling motherhood as an entrepreneur, you’ll feel less alone in episode 199 of the Lead with Love podcast.

In this episode, I talk to published author and life coach, Andrea Owen, who shares her own journey of what it has looked like to balance being a parent, building a business, and writing books.

We explore the push and pull between loving what you do while also navigating being a caregiver in your home.
