“When I originally met Linda for a one on one consult, I was feeling overwhelmed with the activity happening all around me (two small children at home, a new and quickly growing businesses, a husband who was frequently traveling for his own job.) I felt pulled between so many people/things needing support and with no peer to shoulder the burden.
Linda suggested I start out with an upcoming retreat she was hosting that was focused on helping entrepreneurs and small business owners achieve balance in their business and personal life and to learn how to make those things give back to you. It sounded perfect!
During the retreat we were coached to organize our thoughts, goals, obstacles and visions and we did all of this together over the course of a day and in a setting with our peers. Things that seem so obvious when you are asked to verbalize seem to take on a very different shape when written down in a specific format. A clear path appears before you.
The retreat was a catalyst for some changes that I was already contemplating making, but haven’t had the focus to give attention to. Since the retreat I scheduled time away for myself, time away with my husband, family, and my husband's mom. We took a careful look at our finances and know what we can afford to pay someone to help with the business, cut my work hours, and started exercising. I've taken back control, am finding passion for the business again, can see more clearly, and have identified next steps.”
Things are moving! Thanks Linda
