Podcast: Episode 13: How I Do It


​How I Do It

Are you having trouble doing it all, running a business, taking care of your family, dealing with the pandemic, and all the other things that come your way? In this episode of From Pain to Possibility, listen as Susi discusses some key principles that have worked for her over the past three and a half years and some that didn't. Listen and see if there is a takeaway you can use to make your life run a little smoother.

Susi shares the five principles that worked for her, clarity, conversations, support, calendar, and commitment. Clarity leads to conversation; the conversation opens the door to understanding; understanding support helps us get clearer on our calendar. Underline, it all is a commitment to do what we want. Susi discusses how each of these led to her and her husband's ability to handle anything that has been thrown at them, even COVID-19.

Susi also speaks about two books that she used to get her clarity from a perspective of what's important, how each book helped her, and what we can learn from them. She believes that you need to carve out time each day to focus on the one thing that is important and will keep things moving forward and keep the wheels on the bus.

Susi wishes for the listeners to have the courage to get clear, have conversations, seek the support you need for the outcome you want, and experiment with your calendar to see what works for you. She believes that when you do, some great things can happen.

If you want to dig into this process a little further, there are two ways we can connect. One is through the Yogi Business Program, where we place the planning, the Yogi in front of the business because we know that the idea of calm busyness of clarity is way more important than chaotic busyness. There is also my private three-month program. If you realize that some of what I've talked about may solve the symptoms you're experiencing, please reach out to us at [email protected]
