How do you optimize your work hours?

How do you work less, but get more done?
How do you create an intentional plan for your time, but also make room for flexibility as a mom?
How can you make decisions that allow your work to remain (mostly!) a joy and not a drain?
We're answering these questions and more on this episode of BEYOND.
Designing your ideal work schedule starts with imagining how you want to spend your time outside of work.
My schedule and weekly workflow is always open for negotiation, but over the last handful of years I’ve really found what works well for me and our family, and I wanted to share it in more detail than I have before because I know how that can be really helpful.
What works for my business model and schedule may not translate exactly for you, but when you hear WHY I’ve chosen to set my weeks up this way, it may give you some things to consider or try when planning out your own schedule. So I’m going to take you through my week, day by day, and share how I’ve designed those days and again, WHY it works well for me.

On this episode of BEYOND, you'll learn:

• My philosophy about weekend work
• Why I call Mondays my "get it done" days
• How I frontload my week for simplicity and ease
• Why I've chosen to have just two days each week that I work with clients
• How I "bookend" my weeks to protect my energy, give my weekends plenty of margin and leave room for "catch up" time
• How I build in both intention AND flexibility into my schedule
• How I prevent "client days" from looking like draining, back-to-back-to-back Zoom calls
• What it looks like to accomplish full-time productivity on a part-time schedule
• Why I LOVE taking Fridays off, and how you can do it, too

If you’re tired of spinning your wheels and you’re ready for mindset and business support that will help you simplify and create the kind of life and business you’re excited to wake up to, the kind that serves not only your clients but you and your family well, I want to invite you to apply for SIMPLIFIED. This 6-month intensive is for moms building businesses as creatives and coaches, and I'm showing you how to leverage the two most valuable assets you have: your mindset and your messaging, for peace and profit.

Working with me privately is kind of like having a business therapist, marketing strategist and personal trainer for your brain all-in-one.
