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

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.

Her name is Hailey Thomas and she’s the founder of BrainSpace Optimized, where she helps entrepreneurs plan, execute, and complete projects in 90 days or less.

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…
