Today we chat about what that means, how you can tell, and how to choose more wisely. Get on the waitlist for the Elegant Excellence Jour…
 
If you feel behind, I’m with you. Honestly. Being “behind” is SO arbitrary. I’m “ahead” of 98% of my colleagues yet still struggle with it.

Enrollment for my busi…

In a culture permeated with so much productivity guilt, hustle narrative, so many options, ideas, and opportunities… My constant undercurrent is to feel guilty that I’m perhaps not working hard enough.
