The April recap is here, and I’m dishing up a lot of things that happened in the month — most of which could be filed under “unexpected.” 

You can get the behind-the-scenes of Small Business Boss and Scoop Studios in the April recap episode which is now available.

Over the years of running my business, I’ve been through cycles of working too many hours to count and then others where I was making great money but not working all that much.

Amid the hype of working from the beach or only four hours a week, it’s easy to feel completely cynical that the freedom you started your business in search of is even possible. And while it’s all about seasons in business, I want you to know that the flexible, freedom-filled schedule you may be seeking is possible.

In this new episode of the Small Business Boss podcast, guest Ashley Gartland shares a realistic map to getting to that part-time, flexible schedule you’re dreaming of.

The idea of managing versus leading is nothing new, but it’s something I’ve personally been working on a lot. The truth is, I’m VERY comfortable as a manager. I’m great at managing clients, budgets and all the strategies and tactics. I’m comfortable in the day-to-day, and it’s very tangible, so it’s an easy default place for me to operate from.

Sound familiar? In this episode, I’m breaking down managing vs. leading and how that’s changing my business, with some takeaways for you to apply to your business — even if you’re a team of one!

Are you always looking for ways to be more productive? To get more done? I know I sure am, but this week’s guest on the Small Business Boss podcast, Tara Newman, turns this quest for productivity on its head.

Mind blown.

If you’re all about accomplishments and to-do lists, you’ll want to give this a listen to hear Tara break this down and share how other people’s blueprints for success simply aren’t the answer.
