Want to take a peek behind the curtains to see what it’s like running a business full-time? This week I’m taking you along and walking you through day by day of exactly what a typical week looks like for me. 

I personally love listening to behind-the-scenes episodes like this. I think it’s so interesting to hear exactly how other people are spending their time. 

On this episode you’ll hear me talk about my morning routine, what my client work looks like, some of the goals I’m working on in my business and how I’m currently preparing for maternity leave.

My hope for this episode is that you find it interesting and maybe have a few takeaways and tips that you can steal and apply to your own business.

Episode Highlights:

  • The new morning routine I’ve implemented and how it’s working for me
  • Working at coffee shops and the library to maximize productivity
  • How I juggle client work with my own business operations
  • The different types of things I do each week for my one-on-one clients
  • Recording guest podcast interviews 
  • Planning my week and organizing the tasks I need to get done.
