Making Líder Moves: Burned Out to Thriving

It took me 2 years and almost dying to launch my business.

Back in early 2018, I wrote the business plan for my company LEAD Media, and every month I would add or delete information. This was an audacious goal for my retirement and I lived from vacation to burnout, to another vacation and the occasional “sick day” just waiting for the day I could follow my dreams.

You see, I believed my worthiness required 40+ years of experience. Sound familiar? I had the skills to launch my business, but “el que diran” or “everything needs to align” were holding me back. I have learned that there is no perfect moment to create the life you want for yourself, that moment is now.

Here’s a trick to get you out of that mindset: every morning write down your “Ridiculously Small Step,” a step so small nothing can keep you from achieving it. Como diría Luis Fonsi, pacito a pacito, suave suavecito. Ready to go from burned out to thriving? Let’s chat.

¡Hasta la próxima!
