Explore Other Episodes

Have you ever tried unsuccessfully to live a “balanced” life? You’re busy trying to juggle all of the things (your business, health, family, friends, hobbies) and no matter how hard you try, how well you plan, it seems like you fall short of the goal; in your attempt to feel balanced you’ve somehow ended up feeling more chaotic, less fulfilled and more overwhelmed?

This week's guest on the #LOYBPodcast knows exactly how hard it is to juggle #allthethings while still maintaining your own sense of self and purpose and you are going to love the practical tips and strategies she shares.

This week I am joined by Megan Sumrell, a time management and productivity coach for women seeking work + life harmony. She teaches specific strategies to help women get on top of their time, calendar, and goals while getting rid of stress, overwhelm, and exhaustion.

In our conversation, Megan shares why traditional planning approaches don’t often work for women and offers suggestions on ways we can approach planning in a way that better aligns with the feminine energy and lifestyle.

If you want to step into the new year with greater work+life harmony and feel like you can reclaim your time, you won’t want to miss Episode 52 of The Lean Out Your Business Podcast.

In this episode, we dive into:

  • The number one way to “have it all”
  • The two things you need to get crystal clear on to reach your goals
  • Why we should focus on work + life harmony rather than work/life balance
  • What to do when you realize something in your life isn’t working

  • A bottom-up approach to planning vs. a top-down approach
  • What it looks like to have a weekly success tracker
  • The secret to lean
