How to ‘Live More’ Whilst Running Your Successful Coaching or Consultancy Business
• Do you ever feel too busy and overwhelmed?
• How often do you get to do the things you want to do rather than the things you feel you should do?
• Do you feel organised and ‘on top of things’?
If your answers are yes, not enough and not really then this talk is for you!
In Jo’s world POWER stands for Productivity, Organisation, Wellbeing, Energy and Resilience and she believes you need all of them to ensure that you get to ‘live more’, which she defines as being able to do more of the things that you want to do and less of those that you feel you should do or must do.
Jo will be talking about how you can implement her 5 Fundamentals to enable you to feel more productive, organised and calm whilst running your successful coaching or consultancy business.
