“Let’s not think about buying into some dream of a future that may never come true but how can I scale what I’m doing or manage what I’m doing right now so that I am building in that intentional rest because I only have right now. I don’t have that future I just have right now.”
— Annie Frisbie
Why do we feel the pressure to do it all?
You hear the word hustle a lot in the entrepreneur space.
But does the hustle actually help us as private practice lactation consultants?
In this episode, we’re talking about the messages about hustle we’re hearing from business gurus and on social media and whether they’re helpful for having a healthy and thriving private practice.
(Spoiler alert: we think naps might help us reach our goals, too.)
Listen now to discover:
- The internal pressure to do it all (4:11)
- The curse of social media (11:38)
- The importance of releasing what is no longer serving you (17:37)
- What you can cultivate in your life to take some of the pressure off (20:43)
“You can’t do everything, there’s no way to do it all. When you do try to do it all, you’re going to be doing a whole bunch of things, but not really well.”
— Leah Jolly
