Episode 505: How to Get Rid of Overwhelm – Aja White

“You need to work more.” “The house isn’t clean enough – why are you resting when you should be cleaning?” We all have that inner critic that we tend to listen to, causing us to feel overwhelmed and always “busy.”

As business owners, it is easy to get caught up in feeling stressed and overwhelmed, causing us to run our businesses in a way that is not productive. In episode 505 of The Bokeh Podcast, Aja White of Fur and Lace Photography shares not only what causes us to feel overwhelmed, but also practical tools for helping to change our mindset in order to be more positive and productive in life and business!
