HOW TO SIMPLIFY IN THE YEAR AHEAD

mentoring creatives

To me, it happens quite regularly, you ask a woman how she is and she dramatically drops her shoulders, releases a big sigh, and says, I'm so busy! Do you get the same response from men, I wonder?

Women love to over- commit and put self-inflicted pressure on themselves, and this is great if you enjoy it, but if you are complaining about being busy, then it's time to change some of those habits.
