“I always like a good hack. As a busy mom and a business owner, hacks are where it’s at.”
— Leah Jolly
For IBCLCs, being able to do things faster and with less stress translates to a better job done. That’s why we’ve dedicated this entire episode to discussing life hacks designed to introduce more ease into your private practice.
Through our time building and growing our private practices, we’ve identified a number of areas where we’ve been slowed down, distracted, disrupted, or ignored our physical needs… but we’ve also come up with simple daily solutions that keep us on track and working at our best (many of which take under five minutes).
As an IBCLC, there are several key aspects where life hacks shine—from taking care of your body, to managing your business logistics, to nurturing your emotional and spiritual needs, there are small, powerful ways to get around the overwhelm while still making sure you tick off everything on your To-Do list.
In this episode, you’ll discover:
Life hacks for meeting your physical needs
Life hacks for meeting your logistical needs
Life hacks for meeting your emotional & spiritual needs
“Try to have focus outside of just business-related things because there is so much that fills our lives that isn’t business-related, and I think we get burned out faster when that is our sole focus.”
