Live Your Inspired Life
Most people venture into business because they want to enjoy the freedom and luxury of living the lifestyle they desire. To have control of where and when they work. However, it’s difficult to live your inspired life when business becomes too demanding and having a balanced life seems hopeless.
In this episode, Samantha speaks with Jay Harris, life strategist, lifestyle entrepreneur, and coach. Jay believes that the key to living an inspired life is by having control over one’s schedule and calendar.
It’s important to give personal life the same amount of focus and dedication we give our business matters. Jay’s calendar is not only filled with business meetings, but also an agenda with his family and his love for surfing.
It’s critical to recognize what works for you individually. We are all unique and are fuelled by different motivators and inspiration to live an amazing life. For Jay, his human design influences him to make conscious life decisions that generate balance, so he doesn’t burn out.
If you want to know more about how you can maximize your schedule and live an inspired personal and business life, let’s dive in.
