The Downfall of Being a High Performer with Marianne Smith EP: 148

podcast Jul 19, 2023

In the fast-paced world of entrepreneurship, we often find ourselves caught in a relentless cycle of trying to do it all, tirelessly juggling multiple responsibilities without pausing to recharge or find balance. However, this constant hustle can take a toll on our well-being, leading to burnout.

Marianne Smith, well-known in the online coaching space as The Entrepreneur’s Therapist, helps high performers create sustainable peace in their relationships, businesses, and lives. She specializes in working with the unique challenges that leaders and entrepreneurs face mentally, relationally, and in business and has created six-figure businesses of her own in the spaces of both coaching and therapy.

Join me and Marianne as we sit down to have some real talk about: 

  • Her own experiences of working constantly and neglecting personal relationships
  • The importance of recognizing the suffering behind the pursuit of success and the misleading messages about money's ability to bring happiness
  • My own very recent experience of acting on my ideas while overlooking the logistical challenges and the toll it took on my well-being
  • Our tendency to set unrealistic expectations and neglect personal connections, and the fear of vulnerability that prevents us from seeking support
  • The importance of building sustainable practices in our businesses

Remember, it's not about doing everything at once; it's about finding a balance that nourishes both personal well-being and professional growth. So take that pause, recharge, and rediscover the joy and fulfillment that come from aligning passion with a healthy mindset.
