#37 Intimate Encounter: A Mid-Life Awakening & A Big Announcement

Enjoyed this Encounter? Be sure to Subscribe on Itunes or Google.

Sometimes, you get so caught up in the grind that you don’t realize you’re working 24/7. Especially, when you love what you do.

When you keep going, and going, and going, without a break, it’s easy to burn out.

The lesson I’m currently learning is, it’s okay to hit the pause button, and it’s okay to take time to re-group.

In today’s Encounter, I tell you what’s been going on behind the scenes, and I also share a big announcement.

I can’t wait to hear what you think about today’s Encounter! Please share your thoughts in the comment section below.

Also, if you found this Encounter inspiring, moving, and just straight up awesome, please share it.

Your support is greatly appreciated!

#35: 5 Things I Learned From My Nightmare Virtual Assistant Experience

Enjoyed this Encounter? Be sure to Subscribe on Itunes or Google.

It’s true. I recently had a horrible experience with a virtual assistant that I hired.

And yes, I wasn’t completely comfortable with hiring someone in the first place.

Maybe you’re struggling with the same thing and you’re scared to hand over all of your tasks, login details, and personal information to someone else. After all, no one can get the work done like you, right?

If you’re feeling or thinking anything I just stated, then this Encounter is for you!

#32 How To Balance It All With Jessica Pierce

Enjoyed this Encounter? Be sure to Subscribe on Itunes or Google.

Have you ever thought to yourself, “How does she do it?  She’s a successful business owner, her marriage seems perfect, and she’s got two kids??”

I find myself thinking those thoughts often. And not in an envious, jealous kind of a way (I ain’t that kinda girl). I really just genuinely want to know her secrets.

In today’s Encounter, we get to hear how salon owner Jessica Pierce, balances being a wife and a mom, while being a successful entrepreneur.

Whether you think you’ve got it all together, or you feel like you’re struggling to figure it out, I think we all could benefit from some awesome busy mom/driven woman/I want to do it all life hacks.

Especially if it saves you time, money, heartache, stress, anxiety, tears of frustration, late night donut binges, (fill in the blank).

I can’t wait to hear what you think about today’s encounter. So, be sure to share any “aha’s” in the comment section below.

Also, if you found this Encounter inspiring, moving, and just straight up awesome, please share it.
