Questions we discussed

Q1 How did you become an entrepreneur? Please share your career story!

think I was born an entrepreneur! I love being my own boss too much

I started an event and wedding planning company back in the ‘80s and I was so passionate that I prioritized clients and business deadlines but ignored my personal needs. This caused stress, then burnout, then health issues that no doctor could fix. I became a knowledge seeker and discovered the importance of nutrition, sleep, movement, and self-care in order to thrive in life and be successful in business.

I changed my lifestyle, health issues disappeared, my business increased. Life before work, not the other way around. We are human beings, not human doings.

My newfound knowledge inspired me to pursue a career in coaching and help others succeed in life personally and professionally by improving well-being, focus, positivity, happiness, productivity.

I became certified in holistic life coaching & brain fitness coaching so that I could focus on my clients as a whole, combine neuroscience, biohacking, positive psychology, and mindfulness techniques to implement effective behavior changes.

Q2 Why is achieving life-work balance so challenging these days? Has it always been so difficult? What has changed and why?

Modern society prioritizes work, being always on the run, being always productive. It celebrates busyness to show we’re successful. Also, the fast-paced environment forces us to speed things up by rushing through our daily routines and tasks.

It’s very difficult for us to enjoy life’s precious moments: we’re always chasing the next dream, the next goal. We are usually last in our to-do list, but this behavior is taking a toll on our health and well-being.

It feels like we can’t afford to have time for ourselves, but it can be done. We need time to slow down and rest. When they have the time to recharge, our bodies and our brains perform much better.

A successful person, in my opinion, is not a “hustler”; instead, it’s someone who is able to work smart (body and brain are optimized, we’ll see how) and utilizes precious time for personal life.

Q3 How to put life first? How to motivate yourself and make life your actual priority?

People try to achieve #WorkLifeBalance but they don’t realize that it should be the opposite: take care of yourself first in order to increase productivity at work, and you will have more time for what you love to do.

We may be most evolved and sophisticated species on this planet, but we’re still an animal species and our genes are still the same from thousands of years ago. We have to respect the basic needs of our body first: nourishment, movement, rest.

Our body is a very sophisticated system where everything is connected: when we use the right “tools” (nutrition, sleep, movement, self- care) we can improve our cognitive function and productivity exponentially.

Eat whole foods rich in vitamins, minerals, antioxidants. Real food is information for our genes, can reduce inflammation, strengthen the immune system, facilitate detoxification, slow down oxidative stress & cellular aging, improve microbiome.

Move daily to improve blood flow, lower stress, promote detoxification, regulate hormones (and to stimulate new neural connections in the brain when you run).

Don’t forget self-care: it’s not a luxury or a sign of laziness, it’s necessary to thrive in our personal and professional life.

As a result, you’ll increase:

  • Positivity
  • Creativity
  • Productivity (you’ll accomplish more in less time)

What does this all mean?

  • More time for you, your family, your friends
  • Goals achieved faster
  • No more multitasking
  • More sales for your business
  • A happier life!!!

Q4 How to deal with burnout?

Burnout happened to me years ago and it wasn’t fun. Maybe you experienced it (or you’re experiencing it) too. Some tips:

  • Give priority to self-care
  • Set clear boundaries between life & work
  • Schedule everything
  • Learn to accept and let go.

I recently wrote about burnout, how to recognize the symptoms, and how it differs from stress & depression.

Q5 What are resources and tools you can recommend for our community to start building life-work balance?
