Welcome to the Evolvepreneur (After Hours) Show

I am your Special Host Richard Wray

Join me today where we dig deep with our guests and get you the best concepts and strategies to fast-track your business.

My very special guest today is Lisa Towles ...

This episode discusses the importance of self-care for business leaders. Guest Lisa Towles presents a framework called "strategic self-care" consisting of small daily practices like celebrating wins, grieving losses, and saying no. Reflection is important but difficult due to fear of the unknown. Leaders must balance high performance with well-being to avoid burnout. Small, frequent wins mirror agile development practices. Setting boundaries through polite declines prevents overcommitment while maintaining relationships. The discussion provides insight on enjoying life's journey through mindful self-management.

Key Moments:
