Ep #161: Your Job Is NOT Your Life

As a corporate badass woman, you know your job is not your life.

You may even work with leaders who prioritize their job above all else…but I would bet a significant amount of 💸💸💸 that this isn’t the kind of leader you want to be.

I know you value time with your family, your friends, and you want to make an impact in this world that is beyond your current title, beyond the projects you’re working on, and beyond the meetings you attend every week.

But let’s face it. We spend a lot of time at work.

(Probably way more than 40 hours a week, if we’re being honest.)

And because our work occupies so much of our time, so much of our mind and the energy we are putting out into the world, it’s easy for us to forget that it’s actually pretty meaningless in the grand scheme of things.

And this hit me hard recently. And I want to share my thoughts with you today.

So in this episode of Women Changing Leadership, I’m sharing how you can step into your power at work so you can put more of your time, energy, and effort into the areas of your life that DO matter a lot – all while still going for the promotions that allow you to have the impact you are here to make.

This episode is raw and vulnerable – and I think you’re really going to enjoy it.

Let’s get started.

Want to receive the recognition you deserve, step into a higher leadership position, get paid for your ideas instead of the hours you put in at work, and enjoy more time, freedom, energy, and joy? Then you need to get your hands on a copy of Promotions Made Easy. Get your copy here.
