Love the Life You’re Living with Michelle Wood

by | Last updated: Apr 10, 2022 | Podcast

Has 2020 left you feeling like there are too many tabs open in your brain?

I see entrepreneurs in this position all the time – trying to do too many things at once and ending up overwhelmed and frustrated with themselves for not being able to do it all.

Remember, we are human beings, NOT computers! We need to simplify and streamline in order to feel good about our lives and our businesses.

It’s time for a reboot.

We have to create our next normal to figure out a life that isn’t so stressful, difficult, and challenging so that we can feel excited and motivated again.

I’m thrilled to welcome Michelle Wood of Live Colorfully and Well to the show to share her experience helping high achieving women bring more joy, happiness, and color into their lives as they courageously take a stand for living an intentional and fulfilled life.

We talk about strategies and methods to live better and more colorfully – take a listen!
