Work-life balance, occupational balance, balancing roles, finding balance. These are all terms that roll around in conversations among business owners. Well, occupational therapists are probably the only ones talking about occupational balance.
What is it? Where do we find it? OTs often come to me searching for this elusive thing we call balance and in the next breath they tell me they want to be more productive. I think the thought process there is, "If I get more done in less time, I can have more time to do the things I want to do outside of work." No!
Here's the thing, you probably are getting a lot done in the time you're working. What you probably need is to shift how you are looking at your resources, your expectations, your definitions of success, and ultimately show up with more flexibility.
Ashley Reina is my guest on this episode and we dive into all of it. Ashley is a leader in the area of OT business. She and her husband co-own Therabyte which is practice management software. They have 3 kids and Ashley has a pediatric private practice. She's also a fellow Canadian and University of Alberta grad.
We talk all about breaking up with hustle culture, balance, filling your own up furst, boundaries, making your business goals work for you and finding the kind of support you need to thrive.
On February 15, 2023, we are engaging in another conversation. Therabyte is hosting me in a webinar, Building a Business and Confidence One Small Towards Move at a Time. Register to join this free event here.
