011 - Why Self Care is Not Only Important, but ESSENTIAL to Building Your Business
Welcome to another awesome episode of Business Straight Up, the small business podcast for creatives and photographers! Today I am talking with the crazy brilliant Elena Lipson, a coach and teacher that focuses on being productive and reaching your goals because of self care! Entrepreneur self care is something that tends to fall by the wayside because let's be real - we are SO BUSY with so many things happening, that by the time we take care of our families and our businesses, there isn't much left for ourselves! Elena and I are going to talk about energy cycles, a morning routine, what it can do for your life and your business, and about what to do with those fearful thoughts that can sometimes take over when you're facing something that you haven't done before. I can tell you from experience that even for someone who is NOT a morning person, that morning routine is truly life changing!
