How does self-care even relate to our business? In this episode, I share the 5 key benefits when you focus on you in your business. We’re going to dive deep into this really short but really impactful conversation. Too often we’re focused so much on strategy, which is important. Don’t get me wrong because I’m all about strategic thinking and strategy and tactics, but I think we do ourselves a disservice, especially as business owners and leaders when we fail to recognize that we are human beings too.

Biggest Takeaways:

  • When you are consistently and constantly taking care of others, and getting burnt out, you’re no use to anybody because you’re not giving your highest self.
  • When you’re pulled in a million directions, when you don’t have the time and the energy and just the space, the margin to be able to sit and breathe, have a cup of tea, just ponder and think, and really just allow yourself time to just be, it is much harder to make decisions.
  • The best leaders take care of themselves. The best leaders do take the time to put their oxygen mask on because without it, they can’t lead.
