When you run a business, it can feel like you never stop and there’s so much you need to do.
This week’s podcast is about the importance of taking a pause every now and then to take stock, see what’s working, and give yourself a chance to take a breath!
I’m talking about how pause works in coaching, both as a coach and a coachee or client, and remember if you’re educating your clients in any kind of way, this is a form of coaching.
Plus, taking a pause with your content, particularly if you produce long-form content on a regular basis, like a blog, vlog or podcast.
This is a lot of work, and taking breaks will give you time to look at what is resonating, and what your audience or community finds useful so you can create more of what they want.
Finally, you’ll learn the benefits of taking a mini-pause when you’re feeling frazzled and overwhelmed, and how stepping outside, even if it’s only for 15 minutes, will help.
