I just can’t. I’m too excited about this episode. Sarah is one of the first three bloggers I ever started following online so MAJOR fangirling moment going on over here!

As a business owner who loves geeking out about all things entrepreneurial, it’s so easy to fall into being ON all the time. You get into the habit of only consuming things for business reasons which, to be quite honest, is a one way ticket to burnout.

That’s what I love so much about Sarah’s stuff – she’s all about the happy life (as well as the thriving business). If you want to know more about spending your time, money and energy on purpose, start by listening to this show and then definitely go check out her stuff.

The key takeaways:

💛 It’s hard to be good at your business if you don’t have a life.

💛  One of the things that is really important is for us to be intentional about the things that we let into our life, whether that’s the TV shows we watch, the friendships that we have, the Instagram accounts that we follow. All of those things affect us in ways that we don’t necessarily immediately realise. When someone’s Instagram account makes you feel less than, unfollow them. Instead, actively seek out the things that bring you joy or inspiration.

💛  We are worth looking nice just to look in the mirror. We are worth a nice meal that takes 30 seconds to plate. We are worth the bed that has been made that makes our whole room feel nicer. We don’t just have to save those things for when other people are around. It makes us feel better, and when we feel better, we’re better employees, we’re better entrepreneurs, we’re better partners.

💛  Ask for what you want!

💛  You are the only one who can decide to change your habit. If you are trying to change a habit out of obligation, or shame, or because you’re trying to keep up with other people in your life, it’s not going to work.
