If you’ve ever experienced burn-out, you’ll understand the importance of work life balance. My guest this week, self-confessed workaholic Amber Chapman, went through this and more before establishing herself as The Business Therapist and co-founding the work-space, Evolve.
Amber’s business journey has taken her from leadership operations roles in not-for-profits through debilitating illness, to self-employment and a commitment to honour the things she values in her work life.
I feel like this is something we all aspire to. I certainly do! That’s why I invite you to join me on my Goal Setting for Small Business program this January. It’s completely free and designed to provide a support network to anyone working in small business, and includes resources and advice we all need for success.
Join the private Facebook group to register your interest and gain access to the free program in January.
In today’s episode of Be The Drop, we discuss the importance of knowing your purpose and finding people around you that understand it, and Amber reveals how your workplace can support your personal development…
“For me, the ram symbolises the strength and vulnerability of being in business.”
Listen to this episode to hear Amber’s incredible journey towards work life balance (share this on Facebook!):
In this episode you will learn:
- The importance of listening to your inner voice
- How to acknowledge your personal development in your professional life
- The sorts of issues and pressures affecting staff today
- An alternative approach to addressing conflict at work
“Business is lifestyle. It doesn’t make sense not to include personal considerations into the work day.”
How’s your work life balance? I loved chatting to Amber about the importance of people in business. Your organisation is only ever going to be as good as how your people are feeling. And since isolation leads to unhappiness, it’s the opposite feeling we should strive to cultivate at work; a sense of belonging.
I can’t wait for the next installment of Be The Drop, to bring you more insights into the power of business storytelling. Everything we discussed in this episode makes sense to me. But does it makes sense to you? I’d love to hear your comments!
