Show Notes

We have been working on time management with so many of our clients lately so they can build and manage their business around their ideal schedule. This week’s episode 61 of Female Founders Breaking Boundaries is about creating white space by setting boundaries!

Have you ever felt like you were WAY too busy, stressed out, burnt out, and overwhelmed so you were advised to delegate some tasks to take things off your plate and free up some time? Except, maybe it didn't work. If getting out of the day-to-day in your business was as simple as hiring more people, then why are you still feeling overwhelmed and burned out? You are not alone! Sometimes, simply delegating tasks doesn’t work and instead shifts your workload from “doing” to “managing.”

I invite you to use the exercise that our own C-Suite clients use to take the first step in turning your team into a well-oiled, self-managed machine- and get you out of the delegation catch 22. Download the exercise here to get started!

In this episode of Female Founders Breaking Boundaries, I’m sharing the importance of being extremely protective over your time and actionable steps you can take right now to use time blocking as a tool to avoid burnout and implement systems to keep you adhering to these boundaries. Some of the things I cover in this episode are:

  • Celebrating Fidji Simo, the new female CEO of Instacart for finding new ways for Instacart to grow and thrive post-pandemic. 
  • How to use Google Calendar to color-code and time block your schedule.  
  • The biggest mistake I see women making when it comes to setting boundaries around their schedule. 
  • Ways in which you can get support maintaining and protecting the white space on your calendar. 
  • My deep thoughts on judgment- from both sides of the table. 

You may think the more you power through the more successful you will be but in reality, if you don’t take the time to set aside white space in your schedule you will come to find that your business is going nowhere and you’re on your way to burnout. 

Thanks for listening! Be sure to tune in to all the episodes to receive tons of tools, advice, resources, support, and encouragement that resonates with the modern business woman and to hear even more about the points outlined above.
