Ep 62: “Balance. Be Self Aware. Be EmPowered!”



In this episode, I talk about balance. We all struggle with balance. Whether it’s balancing our professional careers with family time, or trying to balance our business with time for ourselves. Balance isn’t easy, but there are ways to make sure that we are self-aware enough to know when the areas of our lives and businesses are not in alignment. Consider balance as you juggle your business and family life.
