Every now and then, radio shows seem to form subconsciously in my mind and appear precisely when I need to hear them myself. Last week’s health scare really rattled me and forced me to examine all the ways in which I wasn’t taking my own advice about work/life balance. Not only was I weighing myself down with fears about future deadlines and commitments, but I was also forgetting to enjoy the day-to-day parts of my job that I absolute loved and missed.
Inspired by a wonderful book I’m reading right now, I decided to devote today’s solo show to a topic that I think is helpful to everyone, business owners and non-business owners alike: Being Present. I’ve learned so much lately about the importance of really focusing, being present and appreciating what you have, and it’s slowly but surely started to affect my happiness, productivity and ability to be a good team leader. Whether you’re just starting out or are in the home stretch of business ownership, this topic is valuable at any stage. Focusing on truly being present with your work (and life) not only improves the quality of your work and business, but also ensures you’ll have them for years to come. Thanks so much to everyone for listening, and to everyone who inspired me to produce this episode. xo, grace
