Keeping Your Edge

This week on TBOA, Rochelle and I get super woo-woo! ;-)

We discuss the mind/body/spirit continuum and how to find your ideal system to ensure your edge stays sharply honed.


Talking Points

Expanding your knowledge through books, podcasts, programs and even coaching from those in your market-adjacent space (or completely outside it).

The connection between moving and feeding your body with your mindset (and sometimes your spirit).

What to do when your ideal routine gets whacked sideways—by COVID, a change in work schedule or your home life.

Wiring your habits—including your physical space—to support your goals and minimize relying on discipline (hint, hint: reduce friction).

Understanding the relationship between spirituality, being of service, contentment and confidence.
