07 Suzy Carroll – Work Smarter, Not Harder
I am so excited to announce my guest, Suzy Carroll. Suzy is on a mission to help as many women as she can to overcome overwhelm. Her own journey to creating a life full of freedom, abundance, space and peace began while owning her business and navigating the recession.
Suzy previously worked as a sales director, and she is a successful business owner and certified nutrition counselor.
Recently, Suzy embarked on a year-long sabbatical to completely unhook from her addiction to busy, put the brakes on her overwhelmed lifestyle and committed to “do less”. During her “year of no” she learned the deep-seated beliefs that kept her on the hamster wheel, created practices to shift thoughts and bring peace, and learned how to say “no” with grace.
We talk about tools for balancing the relationship between work and self-care, especially for women.
“I really had the words busy and success mixed up, so I thought being busy equaled success. But what I have come to learn is that unhealthy business lacks both attention and focus.” – Suzy Carroll

“Busyness leads to overwhelm in its addiction form as a way of numbing out. Healthy busy is intentional with focus while creating spaciousness for that self-care. And THAT is what really leads to success.” – Suzy Carroll
