Do you ever feel like you could just work 24/7 and still not get everything done? If so, this episode is for you!

When you spend your time doing things you feel like you SHOULD do, and saying yes when you should be saying no, you end up not having time for the things you WANT to do, or for the things that are most important. So today Jessica and I are going to be talking about how to create SPACE for things in our lives outside of work (and running a thriving business at the same time!). 

This episode is full of personal stories which highlight the importance of being intentional with your time, and we hope that it inspires you to be more conscious of how you are spending YOUR ultimate commodity!
