I'm tired of seeing visionaries and public servants burn out in the name of a worthy cause. I want to help people with something to offer to this world sustain their efforts into the future and bring their whole selves to their work without sacrificing their mental, physical, or emotional health.

As a long-time leader in nonprofits, one thing that I have seen over and over again is burnout. Whether it's nonprofits or small businesses, internally motivated people in jobs that require passion and drive are prone to overwork because what they are doing makes a difference:

  • serve that one more homeless client
  • help just one more kids with their homework
  • stay up just a bit later writing that proposal
  • make a few more donor calls to support the cause

And as a result, well-intended people shorten their effective careers due to burnout and overwork. In their attempts to do it all, they end up doing much less, not only from shorter careers, but because each day they are operating from a little less of a reserve of attention and energy.

I take a deep dive into the literature and pull out the best nuggets, all with the goal helping you live a more intentional, more productive, more balanced life.
