You might be ready to “quantum leap” ahead, towards some big changes in your business. Maybe you even know you want to hire some support, outsource, or create new workflows. Sometimes, we have to start slowing down a bit before we get to speed up and see exponential shifts that compound.

On this week’s episode I’m bringing in my husband David to dig into this concept that we’ve both been learning and putting into practice — because allowing ourselves to slow down, to hand things off, and to open up more space has started to change everything at Almond Leaf Studios.

For David, this has meant hiring someone to provide editing support with our videos — which has been a big change, and hasn’t necessarily been fun or easy the whole way through (but is so worth it). It’s all about the small steps to make the big changes, and sometimes those small steps are slower ones… and they’re just as sweet. 

This is such a great listen for anyone who’s been feeling overwhelmed, who’s been feeling like they’re in a holding pattern, or who’s simply just trying to live business and life a little more intentionally.
