Does your business consume you?
If you’re like me, you probably love what you do. I mean, we didn’t take the leap of working for ourselves in order to do something we didn’t love right? Work and hustle — those aren’t bad things. It’s great if you love what you do! The problem comes when we allow our business to consume us.
If you are one of my students or clients, you KNOW that I am a huge Ashlyn Carter fan girl. It’s probably not cool to admit things like that out loud, but I don’t even care. I’m an Ashlyn Carter fangirl. She’s smart, kind, and classy, and learning from her has been pivotal in my business. And today I am over the moon excited to share her with you.
That’s right, Ashlyn joined me to talk about how a search for control led to a struggle with an eating disorder, depression, generalized anxiety and a partial hospitalization. We chat about how we can run a business we love, and love working, while finding our way to a healthy balance of loving it and not overworking. She shares her take on boundaries and workflows, and how her boundaries have changed from pre-motherhood to motherhood.
And if you’ve been living under a rock and don’t know who Ashlyn is, she’s a conversion copywriter and marketing strategist specializing in wedding & creative industries. She traded Fortune 500 clients in corporate marketing to bring in more than seven-figures in her business writing for creatives, now helping women write words that sell, so they can work from a place of rest—not hustle.
This might be my favorite interview of all time, and I’m so glad you’re here for it. You’re listening to episode 035 of Chasing Simple, and you’re about to hear some serious truth. Let’s do this.
