Growing Your Lactation Practice by Hiring Help [PODCAST]

Many lactation consultants are used to working solo, and it can be hard to surrender certain aspects of your private practice to others. When you wear many hats, like most private practitioners, it can be hard to recognize when you need to delegate a task to someone else who has more time or expertise in the area.

Ask the Expert: Intentional Time Off with Brandie Mitchell RN, NC-BC [PODCAST]

On a scale of 1 to 10, how balanced is your lifestyle?

Holistic Nurse Coach Brandie Mitchell is back on the show to chat about something that affects all business owners — the need for intentional rest.

Small business owners are at especially high risk for burnout, as we often take on multiple roles and feel we need to be driving our businesses forward all the time. But constant productivity actually hurts us in the long run. When we reach the point of burnout, we no longer perform at our best, and it can take weeks (or longer!) to fully recover.
