Q: how do we create work-life balance during a pandemic? For most of us, our regular routines have been thrown out the window. So, how do we pickup the pieces before the next wave happens?

My special guest today is business coach & psychotherapist Nancy Florence and she’s simplifying how to (once again) create a sense of work-life balance in a pandemic. She pulls back the curtain and reveals what’s been working for her and her clients these past few months.

And more importantly, how to find calm in a very wacky year.

Here’s how.


My special guest today is Nancy Florence and she’s simplifying how to create work-life balance in a pandemic.

We tackle all aspects of it, including:

  • How her definition of “work-life balance” has changed for her or her clients, now that we’re all grappling with a pandemic
  • Her reaction to the productivity shame that seems to be swirling around these days… “if you haven’t learned Japanese yet, you’re behind.” (UGH.) Here’s how she responds to this as an entrepreneur 
  • Many people have lost clients this year, due to the pandemic… not Nancy. She shares her secrets to retaining every single client on her roster that you can replicate in your own business this week
  • She reveals a few tips on what’s working for her as a parent juggling homeschooling and running a business, simultaneously
  • …and ultimately, we had an intriguing conversation sharing our hopes and visions for the future of work. I’ve got some ideas of what may emerge next… if we build it.

I’m willing to bet you’ll learn at least a couple of new, simple things to try out after listening to this one. It’s just simple, small shifts that’ll stack up and help you get back to thriving over time. Enjoy!

Q: Are you looking to create a better work-life balance these days? If yes, this one is for you.

It’s time to #DoTheThing!
