A Look Behind The Scenes of tools for better

If you've come across my blog, website, or social media channels before, then you know I'm all about crisis-proofing. And by that I mean taking your business from crisis-prone to crisis-proof with better self-care. I used to be a big believer in "work is work and schnapps is schnapps", as the old German saying goes - meaning that work and life are to be kept separate. Except that this doesn't fly for most entrepreneurs, especially solopreneurs. 

 

Most entrepreneurs {including me} live and breathe their business. It's built on their values and beliefs, and separating it from their personal life is just not an option. Enter crisis-proofing.

Being able to handle everything your clients {and life} throw at you and keep your business going strong? YES, PLEASE! That's what it's all about.

 

I'd love to take you behind the scenes of my business, and show you how I walk the walk. You in? Swell. Let's have a look at the last few weeks, when my husband and I  sold a house, bought a house, and moved our lives and business without losing our sanity.
