The women who come to me are powerhouses – fueled by late nights, insane worth ethics, skills out the wazoo. But their perfectionist and people-pleasing tendencies leave most of them very stressed and building businesses with little to no time off.
I can say this because it’s what I’ve done.
And now, I am on a MISSION to help women scale online without burnout.

Being an overachiever who was always one step ahead helped me in the corporate world… but no more. I eventually realized that overanalyzing and overthinking don’t serve us.
There are a million ways to shift out of this mindset. The quickest one is by calming your nervous system, be it through meditating or praying. Also, guard what you consume above all else – TV, what you’re scrolling on Instagram. Once you realize how important your thoughts and energy are – and how much they influence what you do – it’ll change how you show up online. Plus, it will help you avoid burnout!

Don’t wait until you’re drowning to get help. It takes people 2-3 months to properly ramp. Be a good leader and set them up for success. Taking this leap of faith, properly onboarding a team, and trusting them can help free up your time and help reduce your burnout.
If you’re starting to notice signs of burnout (or if you know anyone who’s exhibiting them), please feel free to share this post. And remember – it starts with us and DECIDING to change what’s no longer serving us.
