It is trendy to be overburdened and experience burnout, to have a shared empathy for feeling overwhelmed. But, it doesn’t have to be that way!  Today, I talk about some common reasons and mindsets that consultants believe (especially consultants who are women) that leave them feeling burnt out and actually limit their growth. Join me and learn the two important steps in breaking the burnout cycle. You can move beyond burnout and reach your full potential.

In this episode:

  • [01:26] The problem with burnout.
  • [05:47] The first step to breaking the burnout cycle.
  • [06:41] The second part of breaking the cycle.
  • [10:40] What it looks like to move beyond the trend of being overwhelmed.
  • [14:17] How to contact Jessica.

Key Takeaways:

  • A common misconception is that working as hard as possible with blood, sweat, and tears will bring you to the next level of success. If you do not break the cycle of burnout, you will never make it to seven figures.
  • The first step is to acknowledge you are in a burnout cycle and the next step is to make shifts to help yourself. This could be time management, delegation, self-care, or different things but the goal is stopping the burnout.
  • Self-care is a lifestyle choice and a key part of healing from burnout.
