EP 256: Discovering What You Need From Your Business With BrainSpace Optimized Founder Hailey Thomas

Today’s guest mentioned early on in our conversation that she found herself taking the work that came to her, growing her capacity to be able to bring in *more* work, and never really stopping to ask herself how she was designing her business.

Ep 219: Prioritizing Time Off With Calibrate Your Year Creator Kelly Higdon

Kelly Higdon is a business and lifestyle coach who prioritizes her time off so much…

…that’s she’s worked up to taking a full 3 months off from her business every year.

Kelly shares that story and her process for planning that much time off. She walks me through how she plans for life first and then makes her business fit in the space that’s left, as opposed to the other way around. She also shares how her business is different—and how it’s growing differently—than when she was working all hours of the day & night.
