Life can be just... a lot sometimes. We have so many things we want to accomplish, so many things we feel we need to accomplish that it can often feel like we are drowning.
Do you feel like you are not reaching your full potential? Are you frustrated at your lack of motivation and just don't know where to begin?
In this podcast I share the ONE thing that always gives me a lift raft when I feel like I'm drowning.
Fear is the root of anxiety. Fear or failure. Fear of wasting time. Fear of wasting money. Fear of making a mistake. These fears can cause us to overthink, overplan and over research...instead of taking action.
In this podcast I talk about how to overcome that fear and find your motivation.
Are you waiting for more motivation in your life? Do you struggle to find the drive you need to be successful? In this podcast, I share a simple trick that can help you create more motivation and become more productive.
Are you a perfectionist? Does your need to do things "right" cause indecision, overthinking and procrastination? Perfection Paralysis is a real thing and in this podcast I share a few tricks you help you overcome it once and for all. #productivity #selfhelp #perfectionist

Sometimes in order to get more done, we need to relax. Sometimes in order to love being around people, we need some alone time. It's ok to take time for yourself. Self care isn't selfish, it's self love.
Leveling up is all about mastering your new, small routine and making it a habit before you add something new. Each time you master a new small habit, you "level up" and accomplish even more with the next level.
In this podcast I discuss the problem with overthinking organization. Honestly, it's way easier than you think.
I'm going to share the inspiring story of my sister-in-laws newfound journey from overthinker to organizing guru!
