Continuing our mini mindset series, I want to focus on the all-important and extremely relevant topic that is ‘overwhelm.’ As soon as we went into lockdown, a lot of us thought we would have more time to begin working overtime. But for many of us, that idea soon came crashing down just days or weeks later. We may have had the best of intentions going into it all, but now things are beginning to spiral out of control with too many goals and projects to balance.
So on this theme of overwhelm, what I really want to talk about today are some of the key strategies we can implement to manage it. I’ll be sharing some of the strategies that I use in order to keep myself on track, strategies that many of my mindset students use to keep themselves on track, as well as some of the strategies that entrepreneurs that I look up to are using. I also address the question of when to know when to hire someone to help (or when you should begin to hand off some tasks!)

BADASS FUEL — Fuel for Badass Women
Scientifically Supported Ingredients | Support, Not Replacement | Non-GMO
Two years ago, someone asked me what supplements I take to maintain my health, energy, and edge — and they were surprised that I only took four things consistently. For myself and my patients, there are four basics that support — at a foundational level — nearly every system in our bodies. In my quest for the highest quality ingredients and the easiest system for consistently incorporating supplementation to my routine, I formulated and manufactured my own line of foundational supplements. Trusted for myself and my patients, and under the guidance of your own healthcare provider, I’m excited to invite you to check out our foundational product line: Badass Basics. Learn more or order the products yourself by visiting BadassFuel.com!
CALL TO ACTION
“What outcome are you after? What timeline does it have to be executed upon? What action do you need to take? What order does this project need to be initiated in? What tasks can you hand off? And is there a way to make it easier?” These are all of the key questions I want you to be asking yourself following today’s episode to eliminate your overwhelm! For this week’s ‘call to action’ I’d love for you to take the time to answer these questions and try the Entrepology Time System too!
Let me know how it all goes for you by following up on The Entrepology Collective — because when you’re accountable, you’re helpable!

“The fastest way for me to avoid overwhelm has been to address the question: is there a way to make this easier? Am I making this way more complicated than it needs to be?” — Meghan Walker
