The Myth About Balance & My Biggest Setback with Connor Darnbrough

I love coaching people. ALL people. Today’s episode is a “Q&A” that comes from a young man who is searching for his purpose and calling in life. He’s not afraid of hard-work but concerned if he continues at this pace, he will be out of “balance” or burn-out. His name is Connor Darnbrough and I’ve just begun the mentoring process with him. Today, he asks me two great questions dealing with not only life/work-balance, but my biggest setback of my career. 

In the episode, I share why I don’t necessarily believe in the concept of “balance” and why this past year (2020) has been one of the most energetically challenging times of my career. I also share that sometimes I feel I do my best work when my back is against the wall and I discuss why that’s the case. Can anyone else relate?  

If you enjoy today’s Q&A episode, please share it with your community and on your social media. Please be sure to tag me so I can reciprocate some love!
