Four steps to take your life back

Ep. 147 – Four Steps to Take Back Your Life

June 18, 2024

(This podcast was inspired by an article from E-myth)

One of my deepest held core values is ‘life before business’.  As I’ve moved to the farm, my life has changed and so has my business to be in alignment with my desired life.

In this episode, I share 4 actions you can take to build a business that supports your desired life!

I also share the story of the Donkey & the Lion – how and why we sometimes have to walk away from those who drain our energy!

I hope you enjoy it!
