Why do women do so much?

Why don't our egalitarian values match our lived experiences?

Are you ready to ditch overwhelm and grow your life and business without stress?

After overcoming cancer at 25, my guest today made it her mission to show busy women how to ditch the overwhelm, grow their business without the stress, and find inner peace in all areas of their life.

Are you ready?

Sitting in the doctor’s office when she found out she had cancer was her wake-up call.

It’s when she decided something had to change.

The way she was living - stressed, overwhelmed, overworked, and exhausted - was (literally) killing her.

So if you’ve ever felt:

  • Frustrated, stuck, and like you’re spinning your wheels

  • Unsure of what to focus on because everything feels urgent

  • Busy all the time, yet not reaching your goals

  • Overwhelmed and anxious about how you’re going to get it all done

Then you will love this episode. Because she’s been there. And she has figured out how to have success without the stress.

This episode could change your life your life.

If you are craving calm, wanting to let go of stress, desiring to be more mindful in your day, listen in.

I share a new approach, that’s actually quite old, on how to do life and motherhood.

This year, I have started to delve into a deeper understanding and practice.

You might not realize but there are many different types of meditation.

You can meditate with mantras, or envisioning a journey or anchoring around a sound.

Right now, I have been studying zen meditation.

Zen meditation is simply seated. upright in good posture, paying careful attention to breathing in your belly until you are fully alert and present.

There are no steps, no frills.

In fact, meditating with a goal such as quieting your mind is very un-zen.

It’s a state of mind of just being present in the moment.

But today's podcast isn’t about zen meditation.

It’s the zen part that I want to share with you.

The more I read, the more I am feeling like there are ancient foundations...
